Why was the FTMA Established?
The FTMA was established in 2010 by Kevin Stark (6th Dan Shotokan Karate) Becca Hewitt and Hannah Stark to help small groups establish themselves independently, with no external interference. Thus enabling them to continue to teach the martial arts style and philosophies that they have been studying and training in.
FTMA is a service for groups to register throughout the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland. Members resident in England, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are also registered with FTMA.
