I once found an association that crowned a "world champion". It had 7 dojos in the group and they all were within 100 miles of each other.

... it's a small world, eh?

I know of a kickboxing school that also boasts "world champion" fighters, but I've only known them to fight in U.S. cities. Obviously, the word "world" has more than one meaning...
