Welcome to Martial Arts Australia (MAA) the Peak Industry Body that has been serving the industry for the past 21 years providing support and direction for school owners of all styles. Chaired by Graham Slater the association started out as the Karate Alliance (IKA), then evolved into the Martial Arts Alliance (IMA) to embrace all schools and in 2001 Martial Arts Australia was born to better serve the local community.

WHAT WE DO: We work as a medium to liaise with the public about the benefits of martial arts training and the codes operations that clubs use. We also act as a united voice to government so they can actually consult with industry in a more comprehensive manner. For thousands of Instructors / Associations / Promoters, Martial Arts Australia is recognised as the ultimate ‘One Stop Shop’ for their business needs. We make things easier by providing instructors with everything they need to open / operate a martial arts school (industry, legal, qualifications, insurance etc).

For just one subscription fee per year members get access to the full range of discounted services (martial arts insurance, websites, direct debit fee collection, equipment, printing, bulk SMS broadcasting, merchant card facilities, instructor courses, business mentoring, video production and gradings). They also get MAA Instructor Certification and a FREE Business Resource Pack Valued at $700.00
