Using Your Fees To Promote The Industry
Martial Arts Australia uses your membership fees to promote all styles to the general public but they also use these funds to protect and empower the industry as well.
By Filming events and broadcasting them through various networks - Martial Arts TV, Kapow TV and local TV networks. They also create material through other mediums such as magazines, newsletters and radio posted on their numerous websites. They also have a large social media following and extensive website traffic that take advantage of the interesting articles / stories.
By providing the most comprehensive insurance packages, risk management / OH&S policy documents and instructor training courses it helps inform and protect clubs / instructors helping them operate more safely. They also act as a united voice to government, corporate sector and the general public sometimes in the capacity of rallying to prevent unfair legislation being implimented. Or it could be by issuing a PR statment to the public about Cage Fighting being safer in the cage than out of it as an example.
By offering multiple Business Tools all under the One Roof as a 'One Stop Shop'. We also educate instructors with the appropriate coaching / management / business qualifications through our AMACS and Business Mentoring Programs.
So without your Subscriptions we would not be doing very much at all and this would be a big disapointment for thousands of instructors. We don't get government funding we only get revenue from subscriptions, products we sell and sponsorship but we manage it very well.
