Chiefly a membership body, the Federation offers certification to practitioners based on an assessment of their existing competences, including the assessment of other awarding bodies. The assessment methodology includes in-person and video assessment, the accreditation of prior certificated and uncertificated learning and experience, and the submission of written work concerned with the history, theory and practice of the martial arts. The Federation does not ally itself with any particular school or method, is non-political, is open to both amateurs and professionals, and takes a holistic view of martial arts practice, seeking to promote unity and understanding across this varied field.
