Welcome to Adaptive Martial Arts UK & Ireland

Adaptive Martial Arts UK & Ireland is an association dedicated to raise awareness and promote the inclusion of people with all types of disability into Martial Arts.

Our aim is:

  • To be a source of information and support for Martial Arts Instructors wanting to adapt their arts to facilitate the inclusion of people with varying disabilities.
  • To promote the health and well being benefits of Martial Arts and encourage those with disabilities to take part.
  • Be a reference source for people with disabilities to gain information about clubs, locally and nationally that have agreed to adapt their arts to include those with disabilities.

We hope to establish full charitable status through fund raising, events and sponsorship to provide financial help to clubs and instructors for specialized equipment or staff to assist in teaching those with disabilities.

Through training days and seminars we hope to provide assistance to clubs and instructors who wish to include and improve the understanding of working with people with disabilities.

If you would like to know more about what we do or if you you can help in anyway please get in touch by emailing info@adaptivemartialarts.co.uk.
