July 2016 Rebrand & Re-Structure Explained
The new, professional look for the British Martial Arts & Boxing Association
A completely new main website, member’s area, national database, instructor base, student section and more. Not only that, we’re now able to offer DBS checks, safeguarding assistance, first aid courses, more online licensing, instructor insurance, events cover, more student cover and lots more. All internally and with the usual assurances of a leading UK association.
Our restructure signifies our clear intention to remain as a leading UK name in martial arts standards, and we hope also demonstrates that, even with our old website being what many would consider to be forward thinking and modern, that we’re never happy resting on our laurels.

As you’ll see from our old logo (left) and our new logo (right) it’s focused on quality and authority. The shield represents our ambition to defend the industry and the disciplines within that we love so dearly. The swords symbolise the fight against the many cowboys and ‘micky mouse’ associations we share the industry with. The crown depicts our authority as a leading governing body, and the lions represent the varied yet fierce membership base we’re very proud to represent.
We’ve massively upscaled our entire infrastructure to handle even more traffic and data than ever before, and everything has been created with scale-ability in mind.
Below you’ll see an example of this in motion;
OLD STYLE CERTIFICATION
NEW STYLE CERTIFICATION
Our new certification is more conclusive and accurate for it’s purposes, and features a range of completely new and bespoke security measures, such as new embossing, sealing and stamping to make our printed copies and digital copies recognised around the world.
