Code of ethics

It is our purpose to recognize and support martial artists throughout the world regardless of style. We will assist and support teachers and students of the martial arts in their pursuit of knowledge and understanding of the arts. We will encourage martial artists to take their proper places as community leaders. We will promote individual martial artists upon evidence being shown of their committed and continued study of the arts.

We will issue rank for, register and license qualified members of the martial arts schools so they may progress and receive the recognition they deserve for demonstrated dedication to the arts. We will establish a council whose specific duty will be to recognize those who have developed a martial arts style, after due consideration and agreement as to the uniqueness of that style and the preparedness of the individual to advance the art.
