The Australasian Martial Arts Hall of Fame was established in Australasia in 1996 as an associate member of the WKU Hall of Fame based in America, making us a worldwide organisation.

We were established to pay homage and bestow recognition upon martial artists who have made an outstanding contribution to the world of martial arts, and who have demonstrated high ethical and technical abilities in the Australasian Martial Arts Community.
Nominations can originate from family, friends, instructors, peers and students who believe the person being nominated is worthy of such an honour; all nominations are judged on their own merit and performance using stringent decision criteria.

AMAHOF follows the principles of non-discrimination and equal opportunity, thus favouritism, sex, politics, origin, race, creed and style, do not have any bearing on the final selection of an honouree.
Nomination packs can be downloaded using the yellow box on the top right of this page
