MAIA president has confirmed the rumour that the MAIA will be adopting an international role in the accreditation of martial arts instructors.

Walt Missingham, President of the MAIA, confirmed that accreditation courses this year will be conducted in North America, the Middle East and New Zealand.

“We have conducted international courses before but we are now formally placing ourselves in the international market. In addition to conducting accreditation courses we are acting as consultants to a number of countries regarding the establishment of Martial Arts Industry Associations in their respective countries. The concept of a ‘Martial Arts Industry’ was my own so it is extremely gratifying to see not only the acceptance it has gained but the increasing traction it is getting both in Australia and overseas”.
