We're a multi-award winning independent martial arts association and trade body.

Boasting more than 100,000 members across 120 disciplines and styles, BMABA is an industry-leader and modern disruptor to what is still in some places 'the old boy's club' of martial arts governing bodies. We regulate, promote and support grass-roots martial arts in the UK on a scale like non-other.

Our Vision

To support clubs and instructors in growing their clubs to unimaginable heights, with a focus on professional standards and safeguarding.
