Disability Martial Arts International Association
Selby Shotokan Karate Club are now registered on the database of the DMAIA, as a club that is interested in receiving enquiries from disabled members of our community.
Each year approximately 1,000 men, women and children become paralysed due to an accident or illness. Through sport these people whose lives have been traumatically changed, can have an outlet for their frustrations and energy. By focusing on something they can do, and potentially can excel in, increased confidence and a positive outlook can be achieved and this can influence other areas of their lives.
The Association covers all of the UK & Internationally . They set up a data base of all Martial Art Clubs and Associations that will teach people with all abilities. When people phone or email them they can tell them of a Martial Arts Club in their area of the UK & Internationally that will cater for people with all types of disabilities.
The main aim of the charity is to promote martial arts and raise awareness, of people with disability’s who wish to return or take up martial arts and improve their health and a have a better way of life.
