Graham Slater's (Chairman / Founder) vision of creating a safe, non-political and friendly learning environment for martial art instructors of all styles from around the globe started in the mid 1980's. Now martial arts instructors can come together and share their experiences / techniques in a literal melting pot of knowledge while being treated as equals irrespective of grades / years of training. This has been Graham's philosophy and the driving motivation behind the association. What People Say About Us Check out our FAQ Page
We feel the more skills / qualifications martial art instructors have, the better equipped there are to operate their club successfully. We track down specialty martial arts business consultants and mentors available to help instructors create a safe, professional and rewarding environment for their students and the general public. We help martial arts instructors gain all the skills they need all they need is to allocate the time and a few dollars see: AMACS courses.
DISCUSSIONS: We find many instructors are concerned that they can't get the right sports insurance cover for their Muay Thai school or Kickboxing Club, or Brazilian Jiu Jutsu / Mixed Martial Arts - MMA Club. Some Karate and Taekwondo schools have concerns that their policy doesn't cover tournaments, however the ones we offer include this in our standard policy at no extra cost. Reading the fine print may not always reveal all the answers especially if instructors are not familiar with insurance-speak. Get an instant Insurance Quote - Get Peace of Mind
