Register your Club
To register your club or group with Independent Martial Arts (IMA) you must practice a Shotokan based system employing and practicing the important fundamentals to training both in yourself, and as a teacher. In order to uphold our standards and the integrity of our small but well established group it is our responsibility to our members only to offer affiliation to the most dedicated individuals who have a genuine respect for the values and principles of Shotokan Karate upon which it was founded.
If you are someone who already has an established Karate club or you are someone who is looking to build their own and would like and appreciate a platform on which to try and establish yourself in the thing which you love doing and would like to be part of our family like approach towards the “IMA” group we would like to hear from you. If you are someone who would like to become part of a group which thinks high standards and good old fashioned values are important then you would be as important to us as hopefully we will be to you.
We are a non-political traditional Martial Arts group who support the principles, values and good practice of ‘Karate-do’, ‘Karate-jitsu’, ‘Karate-jutsu’ and we welcome the opportunity to strengthen and promote IMA/Nightingale Shotokan Karate as a positive and effective system in the areas of sport, self defence and combat orientated practicality of technique without losing the beautiful design and integrity of the system.
In order to uphold our standards and the integrity of our small but well established group it is our responsibility to only offer affiliation to the most dedicated individuals who clearly demonstrate a real genuine respect for the founding values and principles of Karate. We offer any suitable like minded individuals, clubs or group an opportunity to operate within our structure including access to our 33+ years experience within the Martial Arts world, genuine grade examination and internationally respected certification for all IMA Instructors and students.
To uphold and maintain the foundations upon which we are built all prospective future affiliations are always preceded by an informal meeting, demonstration of skills and teaching abilities. All members must agree to operate within and respect the guidelines and structure laid down by “Independent Martial Arts”.
