The Micronationalist Martial Arts Association (MMAA) is currently the only intermicronational martial arts organization and one that encourages the study, teaching, and practice of all martial arts throughout the micronational globe, as well as cross-national cooperation. The MMAA allows and recognizes any sort of martial art, with the dominant martial art in each of its member nations differing widely. The organization, which was created on 16 July, 2021, currently has fifteen (15) member nations.


History

Establishment

On the date of 16 July, 2021, the MMAA was established by the founder and chair, Kevin Doan. As a martial arts practitioner with eight years of experience, he wanted to spread the skills and values martial arts has to the micronational community. To date, the MMAA is the only organization/association/group that is focused and based around martial arts in the micronational community. The MMAA was founded on two mottoes; "Giving up is not an option" and "Learn to fight so you don't have to," which focus on the core principles of martial arts, which are staying fit, having courage, perseverance, discipline, and willpower, while also using the skills for justice and self-defence and not for ill-minded acts.

Initial Operations

The initial operations were set up in a way to be easily managed and executed. Each aspect was grouped into a ministry. All the ministries formed the MMAA council, where all ministers and members come together to discuss every task and project the MMAA undertakes.

Expansion

The chair has continually put up advertisements to fellow nations for membership interest. In the early stages, this was effective as it brought together the eight founding member states. The chair still puts up advertisements to continuously expand the association.

MMAA Identity

The MMAA represents the martial arts' collective interests to the federal, state, and territorial governments, as well as the wider micronational community and the media as a whole.

Because of its members' combined power and experience, the MMAA is able to provide an effective platform for:

-Lobbying and advocacy on behalf of the industry,

-Representing the interests of members,

-Education on a variety of subjects within martial arts,

-Communication and networking amongst members, as well as with the larger martial arts community in the micronational space and beyond.

The Administrative Body

Chairman Kevin Doan is the only person in executive charge of the MMAA.

The AB is the foundation of the organization, and it is essential for the MMAA to carry out its various statutory responsibilities.

The Peak Body

All or most of these criteria should be answered affirmatively by a peak industry body.

1. Is the association referred to in any State or Federal Government legislation

2. Does the association have a history in the management, development and implementation of policies, procedures, programs and standards that have been applied within the industry

3. Does the association have significant industry representation

4. Does the association have in place mechanisms to receive input from industry participants and stakeholders

5. Is the association recognized by any State and/or Federal government agencies or Departments

8. Has the association developed partnerships/working relationships with key industry stakeholders and/or association, organizations that can influence or dictate outcomes within the industry (e.g. insurance companies)

The MMAA can answer ‘yes’ to all of these points and there is simply no other association that even comes close in its capacity to do the same.
