British Martial Art & Boxing Association

Who Is The BMABA?

A now-leading independent multi-style martial arts association that promotes, regulates and develops UK martial arts.

The BMABA forms the flagship and primary organisation for the BMABA Group of Social Enterprises. Founded in 2012, it is the longest-serving part of our group. The BMABA association influences more than 100,000 martial artists a year and has amassed in excess of 30,000 clubs, instructors and students. Started with £20 of start up capital, BMABA has established itself as a leading organisation for the professional standards of grass roots coaches, instructors and dojos within the United Kingdom.

BMABA Provides martial arts instructor insurance, student insurance and other key provisions; DBS checks, safeguarding qualifications, first aid training and so on. In addition to the core services and the provision of essential guidance and regulation, the BMABA stands itself apart from competition by providing a huge collection of additional membership benefits. From a free club website through to marketing advice, template forms and stock grading certificates through to collaborations with GB Taekwondo and The Safeguarding Code - we're there representing martial arts participants and clubs from 100+ styles across the UK.
