Martial Arts Student
Membership & Insurance
From just £4 per student, per year and packed full of extras
As an Association we’re proud to offer affordable, reliable and comprehensive student insurance & membership for the low annual price starting at just £4 per student, per year – that works out to around less than 1.1p per day.
You can protect your students with £2,000,000 member to member liability insurance covering more than 150 different styles and a range of different types of weapons whilst ensuring their grades and awards are recognised by a leading Association and, on top of all this, you can hand them over beautiful PDF or printed certification, professional license books & inner-slips and access to premium websites, services & businesses at no extra cost to you or your student. All from just £4 per year.
We’re proud to offer comprehensive martial arts student insurance and martial arts student membership for all of our members. Read on for more information on our cover, membership & what’s included.
As a leading independent martial arts association we’re keen to break away from the excessive charges that burden instructors & clubs when it comes to the necessity of student cover.
We combine our student membership to include as standard £2,000,000 member to member public liability insurance, underwritten by WR Berkley from just £4 per student, per year.
This gives you the knowledge that not only are your students a member of your Association but also that they have sufficient member to member cover in place to protect them (and you) should something go wrong during a class.
Because we charge one of the lowest rates in the industry (just £4 per student, per year) that leaves you free to charge your club members what you want for their membership allowing your club to recover a small profit to go towards kit or expenses (with most UK clubs charging between £15 and £30 per student for club membership).
We can of course provide all of the extras you would expect from us – so if you’d like a high quality BMABA student license / grading book to record progress in you can purchase that as an additional extra at our cost price. You can also purchase trade priced kit or BMABA gi / uniform badges if you’d like to. Likewise, printed certification and additional student extras can be bolted onto student registrations as an ‘as and when’ optional extra.
We provide an exclusive BMABA Student portal online free of charge so you can upsell their affiliation to us with yet another free extra and with our free commercial-grade add ons you can collect your student ‘dues’ without any effort whatsoever.
So much more than just student insurance – it’s like a whole other product included in the price tag – and student’s love that.
Martial Arts Student Insurance from the British Martial Arts & Boxing Association is included at no extra charge with all student membership registrations.
For just £4 per student, per year you can register your student’s with our Association, receive high quality certification & license slips, benefit by being able to pass on premium access to premium websites completely free of charge & more – all with the security of a £2,000,000 member to member liability insurance policy protecting your student’s in your class, thanks to our group cover policy with WR Berkley.
See Our Live Student Registration System In Action
Our research indicates we’re the only martial arts association in the UK able to offer instant online student registrations.

Our online system allows you to register students securely 24/7, 365 days a year at your convenience on your tablet, smartphone, computer or laptop.

Free Temporary Martial Arts Student Insurance
We know that realistically it’s impractical to expect you to register and insure students on day one. Many clubs need to offer trial lessons or taster classes, and even when a student commits it can take a couple of weeks for them to pay any membership fees.
We’re proud to offer all premium members of our association completely free 21 day temporary student insurance to ensure you can protect your club and members, even when you’re offering taster classes to new members.
During this 21 day period your temporary students will benefit from the full insurance cover offered by our association member to member insurance policy. It’s completely free and you can register students instantly online. You’ll receive instant confirmation so you can register them on the go – even via your Iphone on the night of your class!
After 21 days the temporary cover will automatically expire and you will need to either register them as full student members or, if they don’t continue training, you can simply leave it be.
A little extra, just for our members so you can confidently continue to offer top notch professional classes for your students.
What Does Our Student Insurance Cost?
Our costing is designed to be transparent, easy to follow and even more importantly – safe to build your club around. All of our cost in priced on the basis of per student, per year.

Our price plans exist to offer clubs of different sizes the opportunity to decide on the additional added extras they feel help them achieve their goals.
Which one you choose (if any at all) are entirely up to you. Because of our amazing online student registration system you’re free to pick & choose which option you want for every student. This allows you to create tiers of pricing in your own club or to offer your students the individual choice of a more expensive & fully-featured membership against a more affordable yet basic membership.

Can’t see your discipline listed above?
If it’s a genuine, recognisable and sensible discipline of martial art or unarmed combat then chances are we can negotiate cover for you with our specialist broker. Unlike generic insurance companies that sell martial arts insurance without any idea what each style actually involves, we understand the expertise and speciality of each style listed above and can often help our underwriters understand how a martial arts discipline can be a sensible risk.
What documents will I receive for every
student registered with the BMABA?
Student Membership Certificate
This membership certificate confirms your student is indeed registered and licensed to a UK martial arts association. It states the confirmation of membership passage and also a representative policy number, signifying your student’s insurance under our association’s group cover member to member policy.
The student charter helps you bolster your student membership offering and also helps to reinforce the membership with a UK national association.
The charter doubles up, offering a declaration of intent from the student in which they agree to assume responsibility for their actions & use their training only when appropriate – a useful reminder to students and a useful tool to help protect clubs too.
We also have a junior version of this charter designed for the parent, guardian or responsible adult to sign for those aged under 16.
Student Inner License
We also include a rather elegant looking student inner license which is designed to fit perfectly into license books (the left example is of course enlarged)!
This confirms membership validity and the student credentials, once again reminding them they must follow club and association rules.
Fancy having a personalised student inner license slip made just for your club?
We can set up custom license slips ready to go for every student registration you put through our system for just a small one-off charge.
That way you can enjoy a personalised inner slip that’s branded to match your club alongside our recognised student licensing documents. If you choose any student registration option that includes printing we’ll print your inner slips for you too!
Plenty of Free Of Charge extras for your students…
We know it can be hard to justify your student’s paying out for memberships to your club. To help you add value for money and to help your students develop we have a range of services designed just for your students.
From forums, an online community, tutorials & guides through to our new Student Liaison Service, we’ve got a range of freebies to help bolster your club’s student memberships.
Our Student Liaison Service, chaired by Senior Committee Executive, Craig Sanderson, is aimed at providing an extra support network to students and helps you provide a better system for resolving disputes or complaints.
Student Analytics & Reporting – For Free – With Every Registration
We know how hard it can be keeping up to date with student registrations. Who’s licensed, who’s expired, who’s graded to where & so on – it’s not easy.
It’s also important you know how you’re performing – especially if you run a larger, more commercial club.
Our student analytics dashboard is part of every student package, on any level. It offers very indepth month by month and year by year reporting to help you identify when you’re performing well and when you’re not.
It also helps identify trends, patterns, gender ratios, renewal vs first term stats & more. All reported in easy to understand, visual graphs. Raw data is provided if you’d like to export the information and run your own visuals too. Alongside this our student register will show you who you have registered, policy numbers, registered grades, expiry dates & more. Simple, precise & invaluable.
Take A Look At Our Demo Analytics Dashboard And See How It Works
You can click on different points in the charts and grids to sample data, and there are 3 tabs on the bottom of the frame to explore the different parts of the analytics dashboard.
