You’ll be pleased to know that we run our association with the philosophy of “friendly cooperation”.
You may have possibly tried other associations who claim to run like us but not received the service that was advertised, they put in no effort and give no
support. This is not the case with us we a truly fair, amicable, organised and reliable association
We have been established since 1964, we have several thousand connected martial arts clubs,
training groups and associations with members in over 120 countries that have affiliated over the course of the years and we can look back today on the our achievements of our members with pride.
The MAA-I as one of the oldest and well renowned associations has connections to many martial arts associations and is held in very high prestige. On the basis of this we are also the representatives
of several other world associations. For example, we are the official representative of the International University of Martial Science, representative of the World Organizer of Martial Arts and we represent different
international Elite and ‘Hall of Fame’ organisations. Cooperation Partner of the Beijing Sports University in Peking/ China and the Assumption University of Bangkok/ Thailand. We have close ties with the Saudi Arabian
Royal family. His Royal highness Togbui Ngoryifia Olatidoye Kosi Cephas Bansah, King of Ghana appointed the MAA Headmaster to Consultant of
Sport of Kingdom of Ghana
The number of member schools of the MAA-I has almost doubled year on year and this is due to our
connection with many famous combat art experts, legends, sporting stars, celebrities and grandmasters. This fact can be justified by our friendly philosophy and the extensive, interesting and above all fair services
that we offer. Awarded as the
“Best Organization of the year” from the Int. Martial Arts Time Magazin Hall of Fame
The success of the MAA-I is based on community, our slogan reads:
"Working together we are stronger and we will reach our common goals".
The MAA-I promotes itself as an international friendly association and represents thus an open-style
strong and large international community. The goal of the MAA-I is it to promote a worldwide brotherhood of martial artists regardless of style/system in the true spirit of the combat arts. In order to further our goals
we do not believe in exploiting our members by charging over-elevated fees or having exaggerated association policies and political bureaucracy. Our fees are kept to a minimum to cover admin costs for certification,
etc. Membership is free of charge
Many associations have tried to do what we do and failed, whether due to lack of experience, contacts, technical knowledge, etc. They have left their members unhappy and in some cases without grade or rank due to
non-recognition from other associations. We in the MAA-I community are the originals since 1964 – we do not disappoint our members! You can profit from our long-time experience, from our aims and drive, our
worldwide member network, you will profit also from the international acknowledgment of our association and the many advantages that we can offer you. We fully support our members whatever around the
The MAA-I adapts to it’s members requirements and continually updates to their needs and the needs of our martial arts community, we recognise the trends in the martial arts world and adapt
to them to include modern advances in styles/systems, training methods, modern media, etc. Consequently, the success of the MAA-I is to be regarded as success of all members, masters, officials and trainers.
We invite you to be a part of this success – and to join our ever-growing community.
Each fight-artist is with us in a big community at home.
We would like to thank for taking
the time to read this and for considering us and would be very happy for you to join us.
With best wishes,
The MAA-I Team
