Hosted by the Martial Arts Industry Association (MAIA), Century Martial Arts, Black Belt Magazine, and Gameness, 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; if the three days of the show aren't enough for you, there is also a huge variety of pre-conference 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, this event is for anyone working in a martial arts school, whether they are a part-time volunteer, front desk worker, or sales and marketing team member. Everyone will benefit from attending the show.
The SuperShow is for all martial arts. You can run a traditional dojo or a gym that caters to pro-MMA fighters. You can 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 and the desire to learn and grow.
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 that they find out so much more. They find inspiration. They find community and a renewed sense of meaning in their work.

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.

“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.”
