Martial Excellence since 1970

WTMAS - The Society for Traditional Martial Arts from Okinawa

We are an international organisation for Promotion and Preservation of Traditional Martial Arts from Okinawa and Japan.
We do this by teaching Martial Arts on international seminars worldwide,
and by making opportunities for our members to train Martial Arts with high level masters in Okinawa and on the seminars in other countries.
There are also oppurtunity on our seminars to make a grading test from the beginner to the black belts
and get an international certification and diploma for your knowledge in Martial Arts up to highest instructor and master levels, signed by our Special advisors.
