We are an entirely self started organisation, founded on just £20 of start-up capital in 2012.
Since then, we’ve grown into one of the largest martial arts social enterprises in the UK, now supporting tens of thousand of organisations and participants throughout the country.
#MartialArtsDoneRight is the result of nearly a decade’s experience through both the BMABA association and the Fighting Chance Foundation. We might have started out as a charitable initiative aimed at raising standards but we’re now a completely standalone provider of everything clubs need in one place.
Who’s Behind #MartialArtsDoneRight?
“I was born into a hard working family and was grappling with poverty before I stepped onto the mats.”
Our Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Giovanni, is the now influential social-entrepreneur behind #MartialArtsDoneRight.
Born in the South West of England at the beginning of the 90’s, Giovanni overcame poverty, the alur of crime and many other challenging factors to emerge as a self-started, self-taught entrepreneur. His endeavours include the BMABA Group of Social Enterprises – 6 award winning organisations that help shape the UK martial arts industry.
Giovanni is currently #MADR’s Chief Executive Officer and is the go-to contact for all technical and insurance related queries. His years of experience as a participation, instructor and industry-level figure combined with out of industry experience as an insurance broker make him one of the most qualified in our industry.
