Hi I am new to the forums and new to MMA but not martial arts(Tae Won Do for 6 yrs) and being in High School there are allot of fights (off and on campus). Mind you we are a Catholic private school. So one day I decided that why not make an MMA club. The benefits are less injuries since the fighting is sanctioned (We even found an Alumni that is a MMA trainer that would be willing to help us) less fights at and after schools, discipline, and finally getting into shape.
Now to the problem getting approved by the principal. The said above are benefits and seeing that he allows wrestling(one of the most approved sports at my school), hockey and lacrosse(Hockey with fights and running into eachother and lacrosse where we get to beat kids upside the head with metal sticks), and water polo( by one of the hardest sports I play since your not allowed but it happens that people punch eachother under water and one kid had a broken arm from a fight).
Any other ideas to let him approve.
