World Congress of Martial Arts
In 1975 Dr. Harold L. Mayle recognized that there was an "unhealthy" change happening in the martial arts competition arena. His desire was to preserve the Martial Artists' traditions of Integrity and provide a non political environment which upholds honesty, loyalty, sportsmanlike conduct, respect and friendship in martial arts competition. Thus with the many friends and associates whom believed as passionately as he, Dr. Mayle organized the WCMA. For the past 40 years the WCMA has expanded and evolved as a worldwide organization with integrity and strong family values.
Dr. Terry Free was appointed by Dr. Mayle to serve as the National Director of the WCMA in 2014. Upon Dr. Mayle's retirement in late 2015, Dr. Terry Free and the WCMA joined forces with TMSA and a renewed group of board members that wish to carry on Dr. Mayle's vision for the WCMA and martial artists worldwide.
The World Congress of Martial Arts and Traditional Martial Sciences Association are organizations based on preserving the history and tradition of the martial arts, by providing professional instructor support, cross-training, rank promotions and safe, fair tournament competition, without political and/or monetary agendas. Allowing all International Amateur Athletes to represent their country in a safe, fair, non-political and family oriented atmosphere.
