International Mixed Martial Arts Federation (IMMAF) chief executive Densign White has welcomed a recommendation from the Council of Europe to member states regarding extreme martial art and combat activities.
The recommendation recognised the "benefits that practitioners of martial arts and combat activities can enjoy" provided these activities are "practiced in an appropriate framework."
The benefits were cited as including agility, social inclusion, self-confidence, self-control and respect.
The Council of Europe noted that there had been "major developments" in extreme martial arts and combat activities since the early 2000s.
Webb was charged with multiple counts of child rape and aggravated sexual battery on a child.
