We are tirelessly committed to offering the single best service available from any UK martial arts and boxing association to our members. We have increased in size substantially last year alone and have seen more than 1000% growth since 2012.
What do we offer our members?
We offer all of our members the opportunity to be a part of an industry leading body for professional martial arts, boxing & combat instructors, coaches & senseis.
Our Association offers the genuinely qualified with the chance to gain recognised qualifications and certification. Alongside our certification and licensing we provide some of the finest & most comprehensive membership benefits, features, resources, licensing tools and insurances to those whom call the BMABA their home.
Here are just a few of the benefits we can offer our members;
100% Politics Free Professional Body
Politics has no place in our beautiful arts. Unfortunately so many associations let petty squabbling and politics get in the way of their job – representing, supporting and developing their members. We’re proud to have been politics free since 2012.
No Contracts Or Tie-Ins
You’re never bound to be a part of our Association and you can terminate your membership to us at any point. You don’t need to buy into our programs or qualifications and you most certainly don’t need to surrender your freedom to teach freely.
Affordable & Fair
We’re a community ran organisation and therefore we don’t want members who don’t want to be a part of our Association. For this reason we always offer a fair & transparent governing body to be a part of with affordable fees – if any.
Governed By Our Members
Although there is a director at the helm of our Association we have a trusted committee made up of real members representing the interests of our instructors. As a member yourself you’ll always have the right to make decisions on our future.

We set standards that mean only genuinely qualified instructors and senseis are able to hold membership to our exclusive & professional organisation. If you’re up to our standards you can be one of the UK’s most recognised instructors.
The certification issued in-house by our body is recognised by most as some of the best certification and martial arts licensing available anywhere in the world. What’s more – all of our certification is checkable with industry leading verification.
