The British Martial Arts & Boxing Association (BMABA) is a multi-award winning independent martial arts governing body.
The association promotes participation, effect social change through our charitable foundation and effectively regulates the instruction of martial arts through all of our BMABA registered coaches, clubs and senseis.
For coaches and clubs, our work extends far beyond just guiding best practice. We represent your club and student’s views on a national platform, provide invaluable resources and tools, provision insurance and licensing – and so much more – all under one inclusive, affordable membership package.
Our organisation is a multi-award winning, independent, politics free body that has risen from just £20 of capital in 2012 to the now dominate position of a substantial, influential disruptor in the UK martial arts sector.
Our Fighting Chance Charitable Foundation uses martial arts to tackle social inequality, with specific programs tackling knife crime, childhood poverty, violence against women and girls and much more.
We work in conjunction with a number of partners including the Home Office, End Child Poverty Group, White Ribbon, NCVO and more.
