The main objective of the Association is the development of MMA as a sport discipline. EMMAA shares the International Olympic Committee (IOC) belief in sport’s power to connect people. The organisation will promote MMA as a sport for everyone, regardless of origin, social status, race or religion. The mission of the organisation is education at a grass roots level in order to minimise risk in the discipline. The Olympic Spirit and fair play are the principles that the Association will instil in the youngest generation. Alongside sport development and regulation, the long-term goal is to see MMA into the Olympic Games.
The key activities of the English MMA Association are:
Outreach to clubs, fighters, officials, doctors and all participants for national registration.
Unification of processes for participant safety, medical issues, personnel, licensing, rules and regulation, equipment, etc.
The launch of a series of amateur tournaments, culminating with the inaugural English national championships – EMMAA National Finals.
Develop a relationship with Safe MMA around athlete health registration.
Lobbying for the regulation of MMA licensing with Sport England.
Building a cooperative relationship with the Team GB Olympic Committee.
