Hosted by the Martial Arts Industry Association (MAIA) and Century Martial arts, the SuperShow is the premier event for continuing education in the martial arts industry. Since 2001, it has drawn thousands of participants annually from across the United States and the globe. The Martial Arts SuperShow features dozens of learning experiences, from on-the-mat training to professional business seminars, plus the chance to network and explore new products and services available on the market. Speakers and seminars cover a huge array of topics, and, if the three days of the show aren’t enough for you, there is also a huge variety of preconference events. If you only go to one martial arts training event this year, make it this one!
The ones who will get the most out of the SuperShow are martial arts school owners and their staff. However, anyone working in a martial arts school, whether they are a part-time volunteer, front desk worker, or person responsible for marketing, will benefit from attending the show.
The SuperShow is for all martial arts. Whether you run a traditional dojo or a gym that caters to pro-MMA fighters, whether you specialize in teaching one art or offer half a dozen, have 10 students or 400 – the SuperShow is for you. The only thing that is required is a passion for martial arts.
Many people come to the Martial Arts SuperShow to find out what specific strategies or tactics they can implement for their business or career. But what we often see is they find out so much more. They find inspiration. They find community, and a renewed sense of meaning in their work.
You’re already in the business of changing lives through martial arts – let the SuperShow change yours.
These include on-the-mat physical training sessions with some of the world’s leading martial artists, business seminars covering marketing, instructor training, and special interest topics, plus morning workouts, afternoon workshops, demos, and more.
Grand Master Chuck Norris is a special guest at this year’s SuperShow! This year, in place of the Opening Ceremonies, there will be a General Session at which Master Norris, and other martial arts icons, will be present.
Here, you’ll see all the latest innovations and state-of-the art developments in the martial arts industry. This includes physical training equipment, digital services, software based solutions, business protection services and new programs to enhance your curriculum and build retention.

“ATTEND AS MANY SEMINARS AS POSSIBLE, SPLIT UP YOUR GROUP AND TAKE GOOD NOTES BUT FOR ONE SEMINAR SESSION DON’T ATTEND A SEMINAR. THE VENDORS ON THE TRADE SHOW FLOOR ARE MOBBED WITH SCHOOL OWNERS IN BETWEEN SEMINAR SESSIONS AND YOU MIGHT HAVE TO STAND IN A LINE TO ASK QUESTION OR GET PRODUCTS OR SERVICES DEMONSTRATED.”
