About Us

The Washington State Martial Arts Association was formed in 2015 to create a unified front for martial arts school owners, students and parents, who are opposed to house bill 1550, stating martial arts school now are categorized in the fitness industry and are subject to retail sales tax.

Who We Are.

We are washington state martial arts school owners, we are mom’s, we are dad’s, we are children, we are people, most importantly we are STUDENTS.

What We Do.

Together along side our lobbyist Mark Gjurasic and Chester Baldwin, we are unified as one to repeal the new law that WA Legislature passed stating that Martial Arts Schools now fall into the category of Fitness and are subject to retail sales tax.

How We Do It.

With our Lobbyists Mark Gjurasic and Chester Baldwin, along side our own research team, we have formulated documentation as well as other findings to repeal HB1550. Meeting with representatives as well as department heads, we are determined to get HB1550 over turn.
