What Makes Us Different?

We know there are many Associations and Governing Bodies out their for martial arts instructors and combat coaches to choose from. We’re really proud to be different to all others in the way we conduct our business & treat our members.

    With more than 180+ styles recognised and instructors from 1st Dan through to 8th Dan, 18 years through to 70 years – there’s always a warm welcome for you in the British Martial Arts & Boxing Association.

  • We know you’ve probably heard it before from countless governing bodies and associations. Everybody is the best and yet that’s of course not possible.

    We don’t want to bad-mouth other bodies out there; it’s not the spirit of our industry or the arts we represent.

    What we do want to do is dispel some of the institutions and associations that spread lies to their members and restrict their freedom to teach freely, develop personally and progress professionally.

    We don’t believe you should have to resit all of your qualifications at considerable cost just to join another association.

  • Likewise, we don’t believe it’s fair to charge frankly obscene membership fees for nothing more than a non-verifiable certificate.

    The British Martial Arts & Boxing Association (BMABA) is leading the industry in terms of the certification we offer, the authentication we’re able to provide and our ethics towards you & your club.

    100% politics free, offering a huge range of membership benefits, licensing & insurance we know how to offer what instructor and senseis need. How? Because we are Instructors, Coaches & Senseis from all works of life.

    We don’t expect you to take our word for it – but if you’d like to become a part of the UK’s most exclusive and progress community run professional governing body for combat sports and martial arts we’d love to welcome you.
