The theme for the 2013 Women’s Martial Arts Conference is inspired by the many people we meet and the lessons we learn through training in the martial arts and self-defense. Whether or not we make martial arts our career, it informs our lives and we become better people through our training.
Applications for workshop presenters, trainers, and short program leaders are now available:

Seeking diversity, we are looking for a wide variety of martial arts and self-defense experiences to introduce newcomers to and to challenge more experienced SDIC and ST campers with new skills and concepts. We plan to continue the excellent tradition of the Young Martial Artists track, and expand on the 2012 track for health, healing, and self care.
Join us for PAWMA's 36th annual training camp, a transformative training weekend with top women martial artists teaching a variety of arts.
