The above manual offers the certified Martial Arts/Karate Instructor a wealth of knowledge and ideas to help produce the highest quality students. When the exam is passed (80% or better) the Certified AMACP Martial Arts and/or Karate Instructor will be internationally certified to teach.

Important Note: Current and past legislation may soon require ALL Martial arts Instructors to be certified. If you are AMACP certified, you will be "Grand Fathered" and should not be required to be re-certified (please see legislation links; state law will vary).

Some Martial Arts/Karate Instructor certification programs can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars and does not offer the invaluable information shown above. The AMACP offers a globally respected Martial Arts/Karate Instructor Certification with a personal and custom certificate and a  recommendation letter upon graduation.
