How Do I Register My School And Students?
If you are teaching the Martial Arts and to join the WMAF you must register as an individual, as a Head Instructor,
your school, and all of your students with the WMAF at the same time. You must
hold the rank of at least 1st degree black belt a Martial Art and have a minimum of
5 students in order to apply for School and Head Instructor certification. To Register Yourself,
School, and Students with the WMAF submit the following:
(The following must be submitted at the same time)
Submit Fees in the form of a Money Order or Bank Draft,
- WMAF Head Instructor Application and Fee.
- WMAF School Membership Application and Fee.
- WMAF Individual Application For Membership and Fee (for yourself).
- WMAF Individual Application For Membership and Fee (for each student).
- Photocopy of your current Certificate of Rank.
in U.S. Funds, made payable to ITA.
Once you are accepted and your applications processed, you shall receive
the following: your WMAF Certificate of Rank and your Rank and Identification
Card (unless you are already a WMAF member), your Head Instructor Certificate, your School Membership Certificate,
a Certificate of Rank and a Rank and Identification Card for each of your
students, a Copy of the WMAF Constitution and By-Laws, a Schedule of WMAF
Fees, and Applications for Promotion, for when you test your students and return the forms to World Headquarters for processing
and rank certification.
The WMAF Constitution and By-Laws explains in detail the WMAF's policies and
procedures for Registering Students, Testing Students, Submitting
Applications for Promotion, and much more. It is the Head Instructor's guide on how to run your school within the
guidelines of the WMAF.
You do not have to have a "full-time" commercial school.
Many instructors teach at community centers, YMCA's, church halls, sports
centers, and even in their homes or backyards. It is not as important
"where" you teach, as it is the "quality" of "what" you teach. The
true spirit of the Martial Arts can be taught in one's backyard or home with
only a few students, or in a full-time commercial school with hundreds
of students. All you need is the ability and willingness to share your
knowledge of the Martial Arts with others.
