About the World Of Martial Arts
From the World of Martial Arts comes WoMA.tv
World of Martial Arts Television (WoMA.tv) is a global venue for martial artists everywhere.
Learn the basics: how to punch, kick and throw. Swap warm-up techniques, exercises and tricks of the trade. Explore your favourite martial art’s philosophy, medicine, culture and spirituality.
Whatever your style – modern, traditional, sport, MMA, Combat, Survival – and however you came here – through the fighting, the fusion of mind and body, or simply through the films – there’s a community for you at WoMA.tv.
The Mind-Body channel is the home of all things internal and spiritual. Diets, supplements and other lifestyle issues are discussed here.
The Movie Channel offers movie trailers and full-length features.
WoMA.tv produces, acquires and commissions everything you ever wanted to know about countless Martial Arts – and invites its users (yes, that includes you!) to add their own unique content.
The WoMA.tv community.
WoMA.tv’s USERS are the global martial arts community, whose members add original video to WoMA.tv to entertain, instruct and dazzle their peers.
Among them are some of the world’s leading martial arts teachers. These GURUS add to, edit and arrange the site’s content to reveal their wisdom and show others the path…
WoMA.tv primarily produces its own material, as well as negotiating with major broadcasters and content owners to bring USERS and GURUS great content – eye-popping footage they can use in their own programmes and playlists.
Watch, shape and contribute to the future of WoMA.tv!

How do I become a GURU?
WoMA.tv’s GURUS are recognised, credible martial artists. They operate their own channels and choose how to present themselves to the world.
GURUS can upload their own content, save content from other channels, maintain their own blog, enjoy live chat with their disciples, and host online training seminars, masterclasses and events. Some additional services – grading reviews, training tips, Thoughts from the Mat, and so on – are offered free of charge; some are Pay Per View or subject to other payment systems.
NEW GURUS are proposed through a consultative process. Nominations are made by existing GURUS and other relevant bodies.
What is a USER?
USERS are drawn from all walks of life and are united by a passion for martial arts.
The martial arts world is very varied. It encompasses everything from Karate to Yoga, special forces training to spiritual exploration, training equipment to food supplements. The World of Martial Arts is a place where very different people, with very different interests, rub shoulders.
In keeping with the spirit of martial arts, WoMA.tv fosters a culture of mutual respect. It enjoys disagreement, embraces discord – but shows absolutely no tolerance whatsoever for bad behaviour. All are welcome, and all must welcome all.
What can I do with my USER CHANNEL?
Select and package WoMA’s great video footage into programmes of your own. Combine short clips a few seconds long to make new clips. Assemble pre-selected clips into long-form features. Create whole schedules of on-demand programmes. Play back your selections and publish them via WoMA.tv
Who built the World of Martial Arts?
World of Martial Arts Television and WoMA.tv were created and developed by Will Henshaw and August Productions Limited of London in the UK. Will Henshaw created, produced/ and directed the BBC martial arts series Mind, Body & Kick Ass Moves with August Productions Ltd. Through his passion for martial arts and subsequent travels around the world filming the BBC series, he felt the martial arts community was underserved by traditional TV broadcasting. The idea of a dedicated martial arts channel grew to fill this gap.
A group of the UK’s and USA’s leading martial artists helped develop WoMA.tv, and formed its first wave of GURUS. They included Steve Rowe, Steve Benitez, John Spezzano, Erik Paulson, Braulio Estima, Dennis Jones, Tony Somers, Matty Evans, Mo Teague, Krishna Godhania, Jim Uglow, Marcus Shakesheff, Tony Terranova, Stuart Davies and Robin Dawkins.
VideoJuicer is the power behind WoMA.tv’s rich media experience. Its founder Stephen Jelley had wanted to build WoMA with Will Henshaw for several years until 2006 when online video exploded on the web. The VideoJuicer team designed and built the WoMA.tv experience, based on its unique playback and remix technology.
VideoJuicer creates online entertainment sites where visitors can reschedule and remix high-quality video into new online formats. The company specialises in applying Internet technologies to media and content businesses, and offers a business-to-business service that provides reliable, secure, and innovative routes to the Internet for video content owners and their media properties.
World of Martial Arts Television, WoMA.tv and its derivatives are wholly owned and operated by August Productions and its licensees. August Productions Limited asserts its right and authority to all Copyright, Trademarks and value in any, and all related variations of the above. See our Terms of Service.
