MAIUK is run by Myself Sensei Shaun Lanham 6th Dan, I have been teaching for many years plus and have belonged too a lot of the major martial arts governing bodies with my academy ISMAA unfortunately I always found there were to many politics involved, this is not what I was looking for. So I decided to start an organisation for what I have been looking for, MAIUK has grown steadily over the last year, my aim is to give you as much or as little help as you need in starting or changing over to us. I pride MAIUK on no hassle, no politics policies but giving martial arts clubs everything they need at a Reasonable Cost.

We cover all style of karate, Mixed Martial Arts, Kick boxing, Judo, Jujitsu, Kung Fu, Pilipino Martial Arts,Taekwondo. we are truly a Mixed Martial Arts Academy. If you do not see your style we will more than likely cover it, give us a ring or email to find out.

Chris Lewis, Chief Instructor

I have been a member of M.A.I.UK for about 3 ½ years. I joined after leaving a large Governing body and it was the best thing I ever did. M.A.I.UK is a non-political organisation, which means there is much more scope and opportunity for myself and my students to attend courses and competitions without any restrictions. Being a multi style organisation it also offers the chance to train with other Martial Arts to gain experience in different styles. Becoming a member of M.A.I.UK was extremely simple, and the benefits are excellent. You are left to run your clubs the way you want without any interference, but advice and assistance is only a phone call away. Instructors insurance and student’s insurance/licences can be obtained at a very reasonable cost, easily and very efficiently, which reduces the stress on the instructor, allowing them to concentrate their efforts on doing what they do best, teaching.
