The primary purpose of AAMMA is to educate student athletes, instructors and officials in the martial arts.
We believe the art of self defense and competition in all martial arts leads to self discipline, self confidence, hunger for educational growth, structure, work ethic, character and friendships.
We hope to provide registered AAMMA martial arts schools and boxing academies with an affordable and accessible all-in-one educational and instructional amateur sanctioning organization. Our mission is to provide a competent sanctioning organization, where all registered student athletes can compete in all the martial arts in the same event on the same day, in hopes of reducing the cost associated with different amateur sanctioning bodies. We are certain this will increase the number of student athletes and their level knowledge and experience in the field of martial arts.
