Join the NWMAF Today!

The National Women’s Martial Arts Federation (NWMAF) is an organization for women and girls who seek insight, strength, accomplishment, and community.

We cherish our practice of martial arts and self-defense; they are our paths of self-discovery and our means of transforming ourselves and the world in which we live.
The NWMAF is for You:
  • If you are a woman or girl who is, has been, or wants to be training in the martial arts,
  • If you are a woman or girl who has ever taken a self-defense class or who wants to learn self-defense within a feminist framework,
  • If you are a woman or girl who teaches martial arts or self-defense,
  • If you want to end violence against women and change the world, or
  • If your idea of a vacation is spending a four-day weekend creating an all-female community of martial artists and training from before sunup until after sundown.
Member Benefits:
  • E-newsletter (published approximately every six weeks),
  • Discounts on NWMAF-, Association of Women Martial Arts Instructors (AWMAI)-, and Pacific Associaion of Women Martial Artists (PAWMA)-sponsored events,
  • Discounts on select member-sponsored events,
  • Entry for your school on our Directory Page,

We welcome all women as members, regardless of age, race, class, religion, sexual orientation, or physical condition. We find strength in one another’s challenges and promote an awareness and appreciation of our differences.
