I highly recommend MATA!!! It’s the whole package and more. There is no better way to make your martial arts school top tier.

The team at MATA has put together an incredible system in Empower Kickboxing that leaves no stone unturned. As soon as I implemented this system, my enrollment skyrocketed and the existing members absolutely loved it.

They show you how to make a seamless transition from your old curriculum to the MATA curriculum.

Accreditation is a critical part of any professional advancement and credibility.

For decades, John Graden has been a leader in establishing industry standards in the martial arts business with the Martial Arts Teacher’s Association.

The best thing you can do for your school and your students is to learn about the most effective teaching, safety, legal, and operational standards that MATA certification delivers. I wholeheartedly endorse MATA certification for all martial arts instructors.

Ricardo Oliveira, Ottawa Martial Arts

The MATA Certification is so much more than just a “teaching” certification. If you genuinely care about your students and want to learn how to be compassionate while being passionate about the martial arts…then this is the ultimate how-to.
