As many who practice martial arts will tell you, it has a superb ability to help you get fit, feel empowered, learn self defence, meet new people, develop self confidence, refine self discipline and more.
You may be surprised to learn that there are currently more than 180 different disciplines, styles and substyles in the United Kingdom. We work with more than 150 disciplines and styles to promote grass roots participation.
What’s grass roots?
Grass Roots refers to you. It’s about getting people of all ages, backgrounds, genders and experiences into the dojos, halls, gyms and academies to learn martial arts.
We believe martial arts as a collective – if properly documented – could constitute one of the biggest sports sectors in the United Kingdom and we firmly believe there’s a style out there for everyone.
