Join the NWMAF Today!











The NWMAF is an organization for women and girls who seek insight, strength, accomplishment, and community.

We cherish our practice of martial arts, self-defense, and healing arts; they are our paths of self-discovery and our means of trans-forming our lives and the world we live in.
The NWMAF is for You If:
  • You are a woman or girl who is currently training, has trained, or wants to train in martial arts or healing arts,
  • You are a woman or girl who has taken a self-defense class or who wants to learn self-defense within a feminist framework,
  • You are a woman or girl who teaches martial arts, self-defense, or healing arts,
  • You want to end violence against women and change the world, or
  • Your idea of a vacation is spending a four-day weekend creating an all-female community of martial artists and self-defense practitioners, and training from before sunup to sundown.
Member Benefits:
  • E-newsletter (published approximately every six weeks),
  • Discounts on events sponsored by the NWMAF, the Association of Women Martial Arts Instructors (AWMAI), and the Pacific Association of Women Martial Artists (PAWMA),
