The NAKMAS National Governing Body has created the prestigious NAKMAS Star Award; an award of recognition for outstanding talent and abilities within its membership, both adults and children.
Members of all ages and all martial arts will be considered for nomination of the NAKMAS Star Award for areas within martial arts including coaching, innovation, dedication, competitive talents, and charity work etc. Each nomination will be judged with principles of fairness and equanimity enabling the awards to be spread out over a wide range of activities for a wide range of recipients.
NAKMAS National Chair, Joe Ellis, said: "NAKMAS has seen individuals throughout its 26 years, showing real talent and abilities. We decided to create this award to highlight individuals that NAKMAS feels should be recognised nationally, and with our full support".
The award will include a specially designed gold foiled Star Award certificate, highlighting the recipient on this new Star Award website and a personal letter and press release from the NAKMAS Chair, which can be used locally. NAKMAS will also allocate some funding to promote the recipients and their clubs via social media.
