About

International Alliance Of Martial Arts Schools is an online networking and member support system driven by the co-operation of Martial Arts schools worldwide.

The IAOMAS network allows all martial artists in participating schools to continue to train wherever and whenever they travel. Simply, IAOMAS has an online directory of schools that have agreed to allow any martial artist from another participating school FREE training for up to two weeks should they visit their particular area. Should the visiting martial artist be staying longer, they can negotiate directly with the school they are visiting.

This one-of-a-kind opportunity is rendered through the generosity of participating host schools who are confident in themselves and open to sharing their experience. These participating schools support our mission and benefit from the ideals which IAOMAS represents.

IAOMAS is NON-POLITICAL and MULTI-STYLE. Our objectives are to improve the value each school offers to their students. We are open-minded and like to adopt a ‘sharing’ mentality in the practice of martial arts. IAOMAS really is about creating a worldwide community that’s welcoming to ideas, to friendship, to diversity, and to the recognition that we all share a passion for the martial arts.

Clubs who join and whose members belong to the IAOMAS are those that are student-centric, are confident in the value they offer, and are those which understand the benefits of allowing students to explore opportunities and experiences beyond that which they initially signed up for.
