The Training sessions for the new Team under the guidance and teaching of RFT Luta Livre Black Belt Nico Welko started already in order to cultivate and ensure the RFT Luta Livre quality demands. Oliver Schmitz who built up the MMA and Luta Livre Team in Fit & Fight Gym for the last 8 years said "My attention and curiosity to Nico and RFT Deutschland was drawn after I read about him so I followed some of his works for a while and later I decided to visit the RFT Deutschland camp last summer and we quickly noticed that our perception about Luta Livre and leadership qualities are similar" further he continues "I had been looking for many years already for someone who helps and supports us integrally to keep growing as a Team and for someone that also cares about our athletes and I finally found it. I'm looking forward to the future and to all the activities".
