Joining UMAA
The UNIVERSAL MARTIAL ARTS ASSOCIATION is a multi-style organization. Practitioners of other styles of martial arts are also invited to participate in the Shorin Ryu Transition Program or the Shorin Ryu Kobudo Program.
  • For a Dojo to be eligible to receive a UMAA Dojo Charter, a minimum of ten (10) members are required
  • For an Organization to become affiliated a minimum of twelve (12) members are required.
  • All Individual non-Dojo membership applications are accepted upon direct approval of the UMAA President.

Dojo Head Instructors or Organizational Heads interested in becoming a member or affiliated to the UMAA, are required to submit a set of completed applications (dojo/organization registration & individual memberships) along with appropriate fees. For Dojo/Organization Heads, please include a brief resume with your applications along with a copy of your latest Yudansha Certificate.

All UMAA memberships (for all divisions and membership types) are on an Annual Basis (calendar year).

Each Dojo or Affiliated Organization within the UMAA is required to be registered with the Association.

All Dojo or Affiliated Organization registrations will be issued a Registration Certificate (Charter) from UMAA. Each UMAA Dojo or Affiliated Organization must be supported by a State or Regional UMAA representative. In this manner the Dojo or Affiliated Organization is guaranteed to have a specific individual responsible for supporting their program. New Members/Dojo/Organizations may request to become the UMAA representative for their state if none exist. In this case, the Regional representative will assume responsibility of assisting the new State representative dojo/organization.

All members of a UMAA Registered Karate / or Karate-Kobudo Dojo should be active individual members of the Association.

In the case of those Dojos/Affiliated Organizations only involved in the UMAA Shorin Ryu Kobudo Division, all individuals of the member body training in UMAA Shorin Ryu Kobudo are expected to be active individual members of the UMAA. Active UMAA Individual Membership will be required for any such individual to receive rank certification in Shorin Ryu Kobudo from UMAA.
