The World Fighting Martial Arts Federation (WFMAF) offers internship opportunities to high school and college students who want to gain hands-on experience in the promotion of traditional martial arts, its diverse culture, and the overall mission of the WFMAF to enhance the communication and exchange of martial arts across borders. We also provide volunteering opportunity for people that are not currently in high school or college, but would like to help in anyway they can.
All internships are unpaid, however, the benefits are vast in addition to gaining hands-on experience.
