What Does Our Membership Include?
Explore The Most Comprehensive Membership Features Of All UK Martial Arts Associations
We don’t believe in charging you the earth for a signed piece of paper and nothing more. Our membership is based on offering you as an instructor or club owner absolutely everything you could possibly need, all under one roof.
From licensing & insurance through to business support and a community. Free websites and hosting through to certification and club listings. It’s all available with a single price tag and membership to our Association.
An Association Dedicated To Professionals
We’re committed to helping honest instructors succeed and cowboy instructors go down.
Ran As A Business
We don’t like the idea of student licenses taking 5 weeks to return and people ‘at the top’ feeling they don’t need to answer to their members because it’s an Association. Instead, we run our Association as a business, focusing on quality, customer service and ensuring we offer everything in a quick, reliable fashion.
Focused On You
We’re not interested in dictating the syllabus you teach or the issuing of coaching qualifications. We’re much more focused on you as a professional instructor and ensuring you have the tools you need to make them happen. That means offering you the support, guidance and tools to do what you love doing even better than you do right now.
We don’t take any interest in shouting about who’s running what and who has (or hasn’t) done something else. The petty squabbling and nonsense found in many small and large UK associations is, as far as we’re concerned, a complete waste of space and that’s why we’re strictly politics free, and always will be.
Friendly & Professional
We absolutely love what we do and take great pride in offering a service that’s both friendly and relaxed but at the same time professional and dedicated. We’re available 24/7, 365 (subject to availability) to ensure our members get the support they need. If you join us, you’re joining a focused & friendly community of like-minded people.
