World Wide Martial Arts Council is a group of martial artists committed to leadership in our communities through teaching, organizing martial arts events, and by promoting martial arts ideals. It is our goal to keep the martial arts alive and vibrant. We include all styles of martial arts and recognize men and women in the martial arts community who share the gift of martial arts and make a difference in people's lives.

About The World Wide Martial Arts Council Logo
Our logo was designed by David Dye Sensei and here he shares with us what the logo represents:

The triangle within the circle represents the human body which consists of the mind, body and spirit. The Ying and Yang symbol represents within the body the balance of life and nature. With all sides connected and the balance of life and nature the body is complete

The white circle represents the mind as being pure
The red circle represents the bloodline of the martial art system
The black circle represents the spirit of the black belt

One who is pure in thought with the bloodline of the martial art has the spirit of a black belt.

The base of the triangle also represents the foundational spirit of the Martial Arts Council which when joined with the mind and body comes together at the apex of the triangle representing the World Wide alliance of all martial artists. The circle represents being surrounded and supported by the members of the World Wide Martial Arts Council.

9am - 5pm Monday - Friday

Members of the World Wide Martial Arts Council come from throughout the world.
