As an association we are immensely proud to run as a social enterprise and not for profit. The BMABA Fighting Chance Charitable Foundation which is the charitable arm of our operations exists to help transform and inspire lives using martial arts as the catalyst for change. Founded by our award winning social entrepreneur Giovanni who himself grew up in poverty and found martial arts to be a live-saving tool, we run a number of charitable programmes. These are aimed at attacking key social injustices – such as Childhood Poverty, Knifecrime, Violence Against Women And Girls, Poor Safety In Martial Arts and more. The core association – including any membership fees paid by instructors and clubs – directly funds this critical work.
Every club that joins or renews with the BMABA Association is directly supporting our Foundation’s critical work. The Foundation’s work is non-political and based on helping as many of society as possible through martial arts.
