The Start of WCA

On January 6, 2019 a small group of cutman had the idea to create a completely new and exceptional association for professional cutman all over the world.

We wanted to create a big team of cutman, where everyone has the same philosophy and spirit for all areas of matial arts.

The WCA takes care of all members, including people that are interested in becoming a cutman/cutwoman, beginners or professional cutman, doctors, healthcare professionals and seasoned supervisors.

It is our philosophy to support each other in all needs and to be available for non-members who have questions in all areas of martial arts!

Together we want to become the best and most modern association of the world.

We are Cutman and Cutwoman from all over the world. Together we will learn from each other. We will always treat everyone with respect and even in difficult times, we will be fair and understanding to all our members.


The WCA is not just a team, we are a martial arts family


We are very proud so say that we can already count over 80 active cutman/ cutwoman in the short time of period

that have decided to join the WCA.

Moreover, we will be very happy to welcome many more.


So no hustle! Please contact us if you have any questions or want to join in


How the WCA works:


In our association, everybody has a voice. During votes, every member has equal voting rights. We make decisions together, not against each other.

One of the main facts in our association.

For a two-year period, all members vote a Chairmen and an understudy Chairmen.

Furthermore, all members vote for an accountant. The accountant is responsible for sponsoring, arranging seminars, meetings and all other financial needs.

For all decisions, votings will be arranged on previous announced dates.


All members of the WCA pay a monthly/ half-yearly or yearly annual fee, into the bank account of the WCA.
