The Jammu and Kashmir Academy of Unified Martial Arts (JKAUMA) is a Non-Profit Organization (NGO), which is an amalgam of various clubs and Associations (practicing different forms of martial art). It is one of the fastest growing sports body in J&K. Unified martial arts appeal to people from a range of backgrounds as it can be used for self-defense, competition fighting and general fitness. The surge in unified martial art popularity has been evident at our clubs spread in the length and breadth of the state. Some of these members join for competition fighting whereas others join purely for the fitness benefits offered by this unified martial arts. However, in the last about two years, the sport has attracted girls in the valley, who seek the training mostly for self-defense. Our Association seeks to promote healthy living through sports and endurance as well as the sportsmanship and personal development that come with martial arts training.
