2022 Presentation Awards

WELCOME to the 2022
AMAHOF Presentation Awards

I would like to extend to you a warm welcome to the Australasian Martial Arts Hall of Fame Inc, the most prestigious martial arts recognition program in Australasia.

AMAHOF was established in 1996 to recognise Australasian Martial Arts practitioners of any style, who make an outstanding contribution to martial arts, consistently demonstrate excellence and selflessly promote the growth of martial arts throughout Australasia. Over 250 martial artists have been assessed and accepted into AMAHOF and as we proudly celebrate its 25th Anniversary we can look back at how AMAHOF has evolved into the nation’s most respected initiative to recognise martial artists’ achievements.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, AMAHOF has endeavoured on numerous occasions to conduct the awards. Due to the lockdowns in various states we have not been successful to recognise our leaders. Now, it is once again time to celebrate with members and guests as we hold the 25th Anniversary celebrations in Perth at the Joondalup Resort, Country Club Blvd, Connolly, WA, from Friday 9th – Sunday 11th September 2022. The success of the program would not be possible without your attendance and our wonderful sponsors, whose generous support and commitment is always greatly appreciated.

Please find below information that will assist you with:

  • Booking dinner tickets, training sessions and AMAHOF memberships (through Eventbrite).
  • Transport from Perth Airport (best by hire car or Uber. Public transport isn’t easy to navigate).
  • Accommodation at Joondalup Resort Hotel (next door to the AMAHOF Event) , Quality Resort Sorrento Beach or Quest Joondalup.
  • Demonstrations / Seminar / Inductees Training Session Bookings (limited numbers).

Thank you for your interest in attending AMAHOF 2022 and I look forward to celebrating with you in Perth. If you have any questions, I can be contacted via email () or on 0411 236 864
