"When we started in June 2018 with our first event it was tough to envision getting to number 50," said David Feldman, President of BKFC. "However, with the enormous growth we've had in the United States and internationally in the last two years the doors are wide open for BKFC to promote bigger events in more states and countries than we could have imagined."
