The World Martial Arts Games Committee was founded in 2005 by both Freddy Kleinschwärzer (GER) and Ken Marchtaler (CAN).
The intention is to provide a platform that promotes participation in Martial arts by all, including all Styles, Abilities, Gender, Ages and Backgrounds.
The organisation is directed and managed by a committee of international representatives from across the globe from a diverse range of martial art styles and backgrounds (please see the Organisation page). The events organised by the WMAGC are intentionally and purposefully inclusive of both male and female participants of all ages and abilities and from all backgrounds.
To uphold and deliver these principles of inclusivity, the WMAGC continually strives to build and develop an international collaborative network, creating cooperative working relationships and practices, where knowledge, experience and opportunities can be shared with Martial Arts organisations across the globe.
The umbrella term of “Martial Arts” is intentional to ensure the diverse range of martial art styles practiced across the globe and at local level are included. The WMAGC aims to be inclusive of the variations in martial arts to ensure that the repertoire of different styles facilitates participation by all, whilst also bringing together the martial arts community to generate international, collaborative relationships.
Participation in the WMAGC events does not exclude anyone based on their gender, background, experiences, ability, opportunities, language, ethnicity, culture or beliefs. Instead it strives to ensure anyone with an interest in Martial Arts gets the opportunity to participate either as a competitor or as part of the event team.
Scrolling down will reveal a brief synopsis of all the International Events from when the WMAGC was founded in 2005.
CERVIA is the main host and will be supported by its partner cities Cesena, Cesenatico and Ravenna. We were glad to find another ambitious host after the Games had to be withdrawn from Zagreb (Croatia) due to the Covid-19 pandemic and a severe earthquake.
The World Sports Games (WSG) are an international major event taking place every two years and welcoming up to 6000 participants. It is full of competitive and non-competitive sports, cultural exchange and fun. WSG are not multisports games for top athletes, but for all amateurs - young & old, men & women - from different countries and cultures all over the world. Not only sports competitions are in the foreground, but also organising a huge festival with the objective of gathering sports friends, as a worldwide family, to advance the making of lifelong friendships, the exchange of information, know-how and experiences within the specific sport or sports-overlapping.
The International Combat Games is a biannual Combat Sports Events of International Association of Combative Sports since 2019.
