WorldMAC Projects

Following the phenomenal success of the World Martial Arts Council to date, and in order to ensure credability on an international scale,  it has been necessary to introduce some compulsory requirements for registered groups and their members to ensure all instructors and the grades they award are globaly recognized.  The World Martial Arts Council has now introduced programmes relating to administration, education, accreditation, competitions at all levels, responsibilities, and financial stability, in order to support registered groups and their members when required. These new implementations provide many opportunities, eliminate problems created by other organizations, and assist in attaining the highest level of credibility in all martial arts communities across the world.

Administration & WorldMAC Foundation

Free group and individual registrations increased dramatically following the huge success of the first WorldMAC Games held in Bangkok during March 2015, and in a single day a group with over 700,000 members registered along with another with over 1,000,000 members.  This means larger premises, additional staff, and cash reserves are needed to provide the same standard of service, and for the WorldMAC Foundation to be in a finacial position to support, and subsidise registered individuals and groups.  To achieve the above the World Martial Arts Council has introduced compulsory requirements for all registered groups and their instructors, and in addition outlined the responsibilities of representatives that will ensure the expansion of activities in all countries of the world without the necessity of introducing registration or annual membership fees.

All Registered Groups

There are now three requirements for all registered groups.

1.  Existing and new groups must ensure all instructors are registered free as individuals.

2. All instructors must join the International Guild of Masters and pay the stipulated single fee to be accredited and receive the correct certification (See IGM section below).

3. All groups must complete the spreadsheet sent with the group certificate containing the name, sex, date of birth, present grade, date awarded, city and country of each individual member for the international database, and ensure the single fee for each individual member is paid.  Groups already registered will be sent a spreadsheet to complete or this may be downloaded below.  It is the responsibility of each group to ensure all present members are included, that the World Martial Arts Council is informed of any new members and all future grades awarded so records can be periodically updated.   It is not necessary to inform the World Martial Arts Council of members that leave the group, as their details will remain on the database indefinitely so all achievements are permanently recorded for any future confirmation of accreditation.  It is not compulsory for students below master level to register  free as individuals, their addresses, and contact details are not required for the database.  It is the responsibility of every group to ensure the achievements of their members are recorded and protected indefinitely.  This prevents students and instructors that leave their original groups from awarding themselves titles and grades if they establish their own systems.  It is not uncommon for people of a low grade, or no grade at all, to suddenly appear as Grand Masters of an invented system that has no history or credibility, which is one of the reasons for the major decline in martial arts standards.  Although individual registration will always be free, creating a group database and constantly updating it involves much work, so an affordable single fee for each individual is necessary, which must be collected by registered groups from their members and paid direct to the World Martial Arts Council.  Use the spreadsheet below to establish a group database to record and protect all martial arts grades, titles, and achievements of your members indefinitely.  Click the corresponding globe for the required form.

Accreditation & Approved Instructors  

  A vast number of people now teaching the martial arts are unregulated, have no record of previous training, are not qualified to teach, have formed their own associations, awarded themselves titles, and in most cases the highest grades possible or even beyond.  These practices have resulted in a decline in teaching standards, inadequate knowledge, inappropriate grade certification, and a great loss of credibility.  Due to fictitious claims time-and related criteria, strict accreditation procedures have been introduced to eradicate fraudulent practices.  The World Martial Arts Council has established an international register of approved instructors and examiners, and the accredited grades they are permitted to award through the International Guild of Masters.  Every registered group should now ensure all their instructors are registered free of charge with the World Martial Arts Council.  

   International Guild of Masters

All instructors must be accredited by the International Guild of Masters at the correct level according to their grade, and pay the required single professional fee.  Instructors holding 1st and 2nd Dan or the equivalent, must register as Associates of the International Guild of Masters and display the initials AIGM after their names.  Instructors holding 3rd and 4th Dan or the equivalent, must register as Members of the International Guild of Masters and display the initials MIGM after their names.  Instructors holding 5th Dan and above or the equivalent, must register as Fellows of the International Guild of Masters and display the initials FIGM after their names.  All registered and approved instructors within the International Guild of Masters may award any grade up to two grades below their own, and these will be internationally recognized.  In addition, it is now a requirement that all members of the WMAC Technical Board are registered in a professional capacity with the International Guild of Masters.  Many people claiming to be martial artists are only concerned with collecting certificates but the majority of these have no value or accreditation.  The certificates issued by the International Guild of Masters are only issued after recipients and their grades have been thoroughly scrutinized, approved by the International Martial Arts Grade Accreditation Board, and are the only certificates any instructor will ever need.  Use the form below to apply for elite IGM membership and accredited instructor status within this professional section of the World Martial Arts Council.

 National FormationNExternal Grade Recognition

  Those that have been involved with the martial arts for any length of time have usually come across people making false claims regarding their grades and martial arts history in order to take advantage of the general public.  Most rely on the ignorance of the average person to establish fraudulent businesses, and make use of the mystery surrounding the arts to overwhelm prospective students.  New students pay for lessons sometimes on a contract that is not easy to cancel without financial penalties, and then realize they are not getting what they are paying for.  They then leave, are usually disillusioned with very little good to say about the martial arts in general, and are faced with a sizeable dilemma.  With so many people claiming to be ‘Masters’ it is difficult to know if instructors are genuine.  The alternative is to pay again to be re-graded by another instructor, the fees of which are usually expensive, and even then such grades are only recognized within the organization that awards them.  To address these problems the World Martial Arts Council established an independent international accreditation system to monitor and record the grades of every individual, the dates these were awarded, and by whom.  This is a massive amount of administrative work as all information is recorded, constantly updated, stored on external systems, and can be retrieved at any time when needed for verification or other purposes. 

    External Grade Recognition Application Form & Fees

    Use this form to apply for external grade recognition after registering as an individual with the World Martial Arts Council.  In order to receive a certificate the individual registration number must be shown on the application form, and the appropriate fee must be paid on application.   

     Competition & Tournament Sanctions

Many competitions and tournaments are claimed to be ‘World Championships’ even when other countries do not attend, entry fees are prohibitive for most competitors, some organizers are not even martial artists, and the main concerns predominantly relate to money and profits.  The World Martial Arts Council will only sanction and support the annual WorldMAC Games, and any other tournaments claiming to be at this level will not be supported or sanctioned under any circumstances.  Other titles that designate a large geographical area such as International, European, Asian, National, Regional, or any other name, must first be approved in writing, and the appropriate non-returnable sanction fee must be paid in advance.

In all countries there will only be one annual WorldMAC Regional event for each of the regions, and these will be qualifying events for the annual WorldMAC National Championships in the same country.  In all countries there will only be one annual National Championships and these will be qualifying events for the annual WorldMAC Games wherever they are staged.  Following the staging of the annual regional and national events in any one country 25% of all profits will be paid to the WorldMAC Foundation to build a cash reserve that will enable the financial support of individual and group causes, when approved.  When registered organizations stage their own competitions and apply to have these sanctioned by the World Martial Arts Council, the above 25% of profits to the WorldMAC Foundation will apply, and once approved these events will be qualifying events for the annual WorldMAC Games.
