The International Martial Arts Alliance started as a concept way back in the mid 1980s when Graham Slater was traveling extensively to many martial arts schools around the globe. Graham would train and exchange ideas and training methods with various instructors as a 'circle of knowledge' learning environment. He created a small following of martial artists who would get together every month or so to train however this grew substantially and was formalized as the International Karate Alliance in 1993. The concept of being open minded enough to share and learn from other martial artists was launched in England, Japan and Australia simultaneously and soon expanded to 15 countries by 1996.
Most people are drawn initially to the IMA seeking the cheapest prices for martial arts insurance but this is only the tip of the iceberg to what this alliance can offer you. We now have a Martial Arts TV Show that allows us to showcase even more martial arts instructors to the general public and help make martial arts more appealing to them. By getting more people into martial arts it helps all school owners and that means you!
