The Professional Unification of Martial Arts is committed to providing the highest quality martial arts training to all of its members. In order to achieve this, all registered school instructors must fulfill the following:

Must have been training in their specified Art for at least three years.
Must pass P.U.M.A. Instructors' certificate.
Must be technically proficient.
Must maintain their own training with their instructor on a regular basis.

P.U.M.A. is also committed to providing a safe learning environment. 

Therefore it is important that all instructors:
  • Maintain regular first aid training. A valid first aid certificate must be available on request,
  • Perform regular safety checks at the training facility.
  • Possess adequate Professional Indemnity Insurance.
  • All instructors who teach children under eighteen must attend at least one Child Protection seminar every two years and have a CRB disclosure performed.
  • All equipment provided or sold to students must be approved by P.U.M.A.

P.U.M.A. has an active inclusiveness policy. 

In accordance with this, the following guidelines are stressed to all instructors and failure to adhere to them may result in disciplinary procedures:
  • All students, regardless of age, race, cultural background, gender, disability, and sexual orientation must be allowed to train in an environment free from harassment by instructors or students. Such behavior may include physical or verbal abuse, sexual harassment, rude comments or "jokes" and refusal to cooperate with others.
  • All students are to receive equality of treatment and opportunity, but appropriate concessions can, and must be made in accordance with an individual's specific needs.
  • If a student is accepted into a club who has a specific need that the instructor has no experience in, it is up to the instructor to research the individual's needs thoroughly.
P.U.M.A. is committed to providing value for money. Training fees should be in line with other P.U.M.A. schools in the area and should compare favourably to other associations which provide a comparable service.
It is the duty of all registered school instructors to adhere to this mission statement and to ensure that any assistant instructors are aware of its contents and adhere to it also.
Any complaints regarding failure to comply with any aspects of the mission statement to be directed to Mr. Ray Gayle, P.U.M.A Chairman.
