“The aim of the Evolve Future World Champions Program is to help equip aspiring martial arts World Champions with effective tools and resources to realize their full potential and unleash their greatness. We’re always looking for ways to support the martial arts community through the creation of platforms that allow us to groom and grow martial arts in Singapore and throughout Asia and I’m excited to see how the program can help these talented athletes along their martial arts journey,” shared Wesley De Souza, Vice President at Evolve MMA.
