The IBA is a collective of like minded Martial Arts practitioners with the sole aim of developing a home for both clubs and individuals. It is suited to those who like a supporting body but without the politics and constraints often associated with membership of a controlling organisation.

Membership is admitted from all disciplines though current membership is predominantly traditional arts with most of our members joining after referral from an existing club or member.

The IBA offers advice, assistance and facilities for training, courses, competition and grading/syllabus support. Insurance, CRB checks and Dan grade ratification are some of the benefits associated with membership.

The IBA is a global organisation with current membership covering all corners of the globe; from Canada to Sri Lanka but with the majority of members from the UK and mainland Europe.

All Information on this Web Site has been gathered from Grandmaster Phil Milner’s personal records 1965 to 2000.
