Friends, this is Alexander Titov speaking.

Difficult times dictate difficult decisions, but they are also often opportunities for reform.

Artem Vasiliev, Ivan Koryagin and Anastasia Pankova have left the Buhurt League team. Many thanks to them for the time spent developing and establishing the League. Together we have developed the League into a truly global system of tournaments all over the world – from New Zealand and China to the USA and Chile.

Despite the difficult environment in both Europe and around the world, organisers in many countries are doing their utmost to run tournaments and keep fighters fit and developing the sport. However, since the Extraordinary General Assembly, all HMBIA activities have been suspended, putting restrictions on the League’s ability to function.

It is therefore clear that the League cannot continue in its past format, the need for its independence is overdue and therefore it is time for a new chapter. The Buhurt League is being withdrawn from the HMBIA and at my request is being fully transferred to my personal management. Many thanks to the HMBIA presidium and advisory board for this difficult decision.

This means that from now on the Buhurt League will operate as an independent sports league without any support or funding.

A brief list of the anticipated changes that follow:
1. Funding for the League has been stopped. If we want the project to continue, I will need your help and interest. I have created a Patreon where you can support the project, the link will be in the first comment. Further decisions will be made in contact with the fighters and organisers. The league needs funds for ratings, smm, website, judges etc to exist.
2. It is planned to create three advisory councils under the League, which will discuss the full range of issues. The specific area of responsibility of each board will be determined at a later date.
2a. Organizers council. The board will consist of the national organization heads and those who have organized at least 2 league tournaments in total and at least 1 tournament in the past year. If an organiser has made at least 1 tournament before this year and will make a tournament this year, they will also be inserted in the council.
2b. Fighters council, consisting of: top 5 teams of world ranking, top 1 of each individual conference according to last season’s results (if top 1 team is already on the board, its place is taken by the next team and so on). 2 representatives per team.
2c. Founders council. From those who will help financially in the formation of the league now. The contribution limit for the possibility of joining the board will be determined at a later date.
3. Buhurt League will continue to use the current HMBIA rules and regulations.
4. The League recognises the current certification of HMBIA marshals. That is, HMBIA certified marshals as of 1 April 2022 are recognised as such by the League. There are plans to introduce marshal certification by the League in the future.
5. Plans for the introduction of a shelf rally remain in place.
6. The 2022 season is extended to 2023. The final league tournaments will be held in late 2023/early 2024. Time is needed to adapt the system to the new conditions.
7. I would be glad if there are people who would be willing to take over some of the League functions as volunteers: social media maintenance, website maintenance (WordPress) and video editing.
8. And I will be glad to get your ideas, wishes, thoughts etc.

Friends, fighters, organizers, marshals. Let’s give a new impetus to a project that we have developed as a community in many countries. Make better tournaments, better broadcasts, bring more people to our sport.

As always, for any questions write Alexander Titov . See you on the list!!!
