WELCOME TO THE UK MARTIAL ARTS ALLIANCE (UKMAA)
Established in 2010
ALLIANCE: “Joining in Pursuit of Common Interests” (the Concise Oxford Dictionary)
The UKMAA is a unique network of martial arts instructors and personal safety trainers which is considered by its Affiliates to be an extended family of like-minded and friendly persons. Collectively we are helping and advising one another, we’re breaking down tribal barriers, sharing skills-sets and ideas whilst forging new friendships and having fun in the process, the way things should be.
In essence the UKMAA is not an Association, a Federation or a Governing Body but it is a ‘unique and friendly’ networking organisation. Please remember, the UKMAA strongly encourages its Affiliates to retain their present affiliations upon registration. However, if an Affiliate wishes the UKMAA to be their parent organisation the UKMAA will be happy to acknowledge this request.
The UKMAA is open to all regardless of style/system or instructional rank/grade/status. And for the record the UKMAA does not promote martial politics, have any hidden agendas and it will not interfere with its valued Affiliates' practices either - simple!
Initial Membership & Registration Includes:
1. Ratification of current grade/rank held (subject to proof of grade/rank).
2. A website listing & profile (photo & grades/qualifications).
3. A smart & high quality UKMAA patch.
