Benefits

There are many martial arts schools and practitioners who are not interested in pursuing multi-style cross-training or who might prefer to preserve an insular culture – so it is a statement by itself when a club joins the IAOMAS network.

Clubs who belong to the IAOMAS are student-centric, and who understand the benefits of allowing students and instructors to explore opportunities and experiences beyond that which is available behind close doors.

Host School’s Student Benefits
