WPMAF Martial arts Rating Scale

Many persons that starts practicing martial arts would like to know how complete are their martial art. WPMAF have developed a rating system for martial arts where the COMPLETE styles have a higher rating than styles that focuses on limited techniques. This is not to discriminate styles, but rather to show what styles that include a variety of techniques and they who don’t. Let us take two examples: Boxing uses one technique group (A boxer hits).  Jiu jitsu uses multiple techniques. The Jiu jitsu includes a bigger variety of techniques. This does not say that boxing is bad and jiu jitsu is good. This just tell us that That the technical variety in jiu jitsu is bigger. The WPMAF Martial arts Rating Scale helps you to select martial arts that correspond to what you want to learn.

Information about martial arts is analyzed according to collected information. The rating system ranges from AAA (the best) to C (The worst). It works very similar to the Bond credit rating system. The reason why WPMAF uses the words Best and Worst are that we want complete martial arts and practitioners of martial arts. Best does not mean good and worst does not mean bad. It simply mean less complex or more complex.

If any complaints to the evaluation please contact WPMAF office; we will be happy to correct mistakes and to explain.
