The Edmonton Combative Sports Commission (ECSC) is a Council Committee composed of up to 7 volunteer citizen members. This governance body operates within the jurisdiction established by City Council through the Edmonton Combative Sports Commission Bylaw 15638. The ECSC supplements the regulatory provisions in the Combative Sports Bylaw 15594 through further regulations on combative sports matters such as licensing, conduct, qualifications and contests. The ECSC also serves as an appeal body for decisions made by the Executive Director regarding licensing and permitting.  

Executive Director

The Executive Director is an employee of the City and, pursuant to Bylaw 15638, is responsible for all operational decisions about combative sports in Edmonton. The Executive Director is not a member of the ECSC; however, the ECSC's regulations set additional rules to be applied by the Executive Director and other combative sports officials.
