Earn Martial Arts Rank for Police and Military Training.
Many law enforcement and military personnel have spent years training in defensive tactics and/or military combatives without any type of ranking or recognition. I.I.M.A.A. offers martial art rank for Police and Military Training, and instructor certifications in both areas. I.I.M.A.A. has instructors with law enforcement and military backgrounds to easily translate your experience and instruction into certification. Certification can be handled in one of two ways.
The first method is to submit your back ground information to I.I.M.A.A. This would include a resume and copies of all training certificates. The second method is to attend a training course and be certified in person by an I.I.M.A.A. instructor.
IIMAA has several active and retired Police and Military Instructors that can train and or evaluate your current experience to help you reach your goals.
Ranking will be based on years of experience, courses attended and any teaching time you may have. Ranking will be based on I.I.M.A.A.’s rank structure.You may choose to get rank, certification or both. If you meet the guidelines set up by the I.I.M.A.A. you will have National and International support and recognition. If you choose certification, you will also be eligible to instruct for Defensive Tactics International.
Don’t wait, call (727-300-6950) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) us today to see if you qualify to Earn Martial Arts rank for Police and Military Training.

Hundreds of Drills (Games) that you can use to enhance your kid and adult classes as well as your own martial arts training.
Here is an example of a few great drills:
This is an old favorite. Just like Simon Says, but have the students do martial arts techniques or martial arts related activities. Students who fail to follow correct instructions at the correct time must sit down until the start of a new round. This drill develops focus, listening and concentration. Kids and parents love this drill.
Use a Pool Noodle (cut in half usually works best). Swing the noodle back and forth just off the ground and swing it higher towards the students head (carefully). The student must jump over and duck under the noodle. Have the other students count each successful pass to see which student gets the highest number of misses. Once the student is hit they sit down and wait for their next turn. This drill develops timing, coordination, concentration and leg strength.

Kukkiwon World Taekwondo Headquarters is the official governing organization of the sport of taekwondo. It was established by the South Korean government in 1973.
The Kukkiwon and the Korea Taekwondo Association hosted the first World Taekwondo Championships in May of 1973, with over 200 competitors from 17 countries in attendance. This paved the way for the establishment of World Taekwondo in 1973, the international federation that, today, governs the Olympic sport of taekwondo.
Kukkiwon devotes itself to spreading taekwando culture, spirit and history worldwide.
It does this by conducting overseas tours for poomsae training, leading international seminars and academic interchanges (e.g. World Taekwondo Leaders Forum), hosting the annual World Taekwondo Hanmadang (week-long festival) and sponsoring national hanmadangs in various countries around the world.
Kukkiwon administers the Poom-Dan (belt level) Promotion Test, which measures a trainees commitment to personal growth in taekwondo. Certificates (colored belts) issued by Kukkiwon are held in high esteem and are required to participate in events supervised by World Taekwondo. Worldwide there are over 9 million Kukkiwon poom-dan holders.
Poom-Dan certifications from Kukkiwon are valid anywhere in the world. As a Poom-Dan certificate holder, taekwondo practitioners aren’t just certified by their local schools, they are certified by the official governing organization of the sport of taekwondo.
The USJA commits itself to spreading the art of Judo to the best of our abilities in the spirit of jita-kyoei, mutual benefit.
