However, due to the massive stigma in the martial arts community regarding diploma mills and multi-style organizations, we have decided to no longer offer this service. Therefore, effective immediately, the US Association of Martial Arts will no longer be offering certification of any kind. During the membership application process, upon successful induction in our organization, we will provide a welcome letter validating the rank you currently hold (provided that it can be verified to our standards) but this is not a certification issued or endorsed by us. Moving forward, we are returning to our initial mission of providing training opportunities, seminars, events, etc.
We thank you all for your understanding, and look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming Taikai on Sunday, August 30th. Please remember due to space limitations and COVID-19 social distancing guidelines, you must be pre-registered in order to attend. No walk-ins will be allowed.
