Free Martial Arts Club Website

It’s more important than ever before for your club to have a professional, coherent online presence for current and prospective students. Almost everyone will look for a club online, and more than half will visit from a mobile device.

No matter how good your instruction might be ‘on the mats’, if you don’t have the depth of information and professional appearance online, you’re selling your club short. That’s where we come in.

We have been providing our members with a free club website since 2012 and empowered thousands of clubs to receive millions of views over the years. We make sure every single club on our books has access to the latest technology – inclusive in any fees already paid – to get online quickly and efficiently.

Accept No Imitations

We were the first association to offer a free club website to our members, and we’re still the market leaders. We are part of the BMABA Group of Social Enterprises, which means we’re linked to MartialHost and MartialClub. This gives us access to industry leading technology which other organisations simply can not compete with.

Access Our Website Scrappage Scheme

Until December 2021, we’re running a website scrappage scheme as part of our efforts to help clubs modernise and recover from the impacts of COVID. We know a major part of this will be presenting a professional, clear online image to help bring parents and students back into the club.

If you already have a website active elsewhere, we will fund up to 100% of the costs in either migrating your site to us (so you can rip up your current monthly hosting bills) or converting you onto the MartialClub subscription. We’re the only martial arts association to offer this, but we’re happy to fund in-excess of £10,000 of digital innovations in this area because we know that whilst you’re no doubt brilliant in the dojo, you might not be perfect behind the computer. Whilst this may be the case, it’s an important area of your club management that has to be addressed and we hope the scrappage scheme will both shoulder the financial burdens, and provide the necessary incentive to bring your club up to date.

Take a look at the full MartialClub service which is
provided free of charge to all of our paying members!

Take A Closer Look…

Access the Martial Arts Industry’s most powerful web hosting provision, inclusive in the costs of membership.

Yes, absolutely. If you have a website already set up which you would like to keep, we do offer a few alternatives which will help migrate your site to MartialHost’s fantastic service and will allow us to ‘suck up’ the hosting bill for you.

You certainly can. MartialClub can provide the assistance needed to point your current domain name to their servers, so you can enjoy the full service.

It won’t fit the MartialClub offering but we do have a few Managed Premium WordPress hosting provisions which we should be able to move you across onto. This will help save you what is no doubt a considerable hosting charge. Migration is paid for by the association and guarantees your transfer to be safe.

We think so. The system is very easy to use so the learning curve is minimal. If you can make it to black belt, you can spare an hour to work your way around this really easy to use site builder. If you do get stuck, professional support is available from MartialClub to assist you.

Yes, it is. We’ve been providing these kind of benefits to our members since 2012. As part of the BMABA group, we receive preferential access to services like MartialClub. Take a look at our membership options when you join us online to explore what’s included with each package, but every member will have access to this premium service.

Join More Than 6,500 Like-Minded Instructors & Clubs

We’re one of the largest martial arts associations in the UK with more than 30,000 registered members across thousands of clubs and instructors.

We have our own offices, not the kitchen table.

There’s nothing wrong with smaller martial arts associations. In fact, we think it’s good for competition and variety. Unfortunately too many are one-man bands run from kitchen tables, and not professional set ups with staff.

We have three locations – Manchester, London and West Sussex. Our HQ has over 1,400sqft of dedicated, bespoke office space for our team of staff and volunteers.

Founded in 2012 by the now Multi-Award Winning Social Entrepreneur & Life-Long Martial Artist

Frustrated by a lack of affordable, professional alternatives to the associations Giovanni Soffietto had dealt with when participating and then teaching Thai Boxing and Karate, BMABA was founded.

Focused on professional standards and ethics rather than belts and titles, BMABA boasts the pedigree of a life-long martial arts expert come award winning social entrepreneur as it’s Chief Executive Officer. It’s fair to say we’re well qualified and backed by an industry giant.

Our Membership Isn’t Just A Piece Of Paper

We have always been focused on providing clubs with everything they need under a single membership, and our range of resources, tools and features delivers exactly that.

From template grading certificates and documents through to a free club website and national club listings. Whether it be advice on club structure and marketing or membership marks and qualifications. DBS checks, first aid qualifications, coaching certificates, instructor licenses, insurance, business plans, equipment, graphics – you named it, we cover it under just one simple, affordable membership.

Beautiful, Professional Certification As Standard

So much of what you do will be judged on the grades, credentials and certification you hold. We get that.

We know parents, students and venues don’t always understand exactly what qualifies you. We help by providing superb, professional certification that ensures you look the part. Be it a Dan Grade, Instructor License or Insurance Document, all of our digital and printed certificates will meet the mark and be accepted across the UK.

Our Profits Fund The Fighting Chance Foundation

All of our eligible profits are donated to the Fighting Chance Foundation to help change lives through martial arts.

From programmes designed to help children in poverty and women & girls at risk of violence through to anti-knife campaigns and disability inclusion work, the Fighting Chance Foundation changes lives through martial arts.

Access The Latest Martial Arts Qualifications

We provide all of our members with a free Level 1 and level 2 Martial Arts Instructor Qualification. We also provide access to more than twenty professional courses and qualifications to help expand our member’s portfolios.

From first aid, safeguarding and coaching through to concussion awareness, club colours and marketing – BMABA are a household name in martial arts for providing high-quality, affordable access to training and qualifications for martial arts.

We Back Our Members, Even During The Darkest Of Times

Our response and support throughout the Coronavirus Pandemic confirmed to the industry the way BMABA treats it’s members.

We provided daily updates, dedicated online training hubs, access to a free COVID instructor qualification, subsidised insurances, a self-funded Covid Recovery Scheme, mediation services with local authorities and interpretations of DCMS policy. We increased our operational hours to ensure a 7 day a week response and invested more than ever in our systems, processes and memberships. This is what an association should be doing for its members we believe. As our slogan goes; “To High Places By Narrow Roads“.

You won't find another UK martial arts association that can offer so much to their members.
