Martial Arts University Grant Commission (MAUGC)

Who We Are: Martial Arts University Grant Commission (MAUGC) is a private, nonprofit university, and an unprecedented example of collective public philanthropy in India. Martial Arts University Grant Commission (MAUGC) offers its students a multidisciplinary liberal education, usually defined as one that transcends the boundaries between the arts and sciences, and carries a strong emphasis on learning across subjects. Such an education provides depth and breadth of learning, both by exposing students to diverse disciplines and by emphasising scholarship and research.

Our Faculty and Students: The University’s focus is on attracting the brightest students, putting them under the guidance of the most inspirational faculty, and developing a global reputation for innovative research. Faculty and students come from across the country, and the world, and Martialyogarts is committed to maintaining the highest intellectual and academic standards.

Our Programmes: Martial Arts University Grant Commission (MAUGC) offers undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across the humanities, social sciences and fundamental natural sciences. The aim is to help students become well-rounded individuals who are able to think critically about issues from multiple perspectives, communicate effectively and go on to become ethical self-aware leaders with a commitment to public service.

Our Partners: The University is helped in its endeavours by some of the top-rated institutions in the world. Our academic partners include University of Pennsylvanias School of Engineering and Applied Sciences; University of California, Berkeley; University of Michigan; Sciences Po, Paris; Carleton College; King’s College, London, Trinity College, Dublin and Yale University . These partnerships extend to the development of faculty exchanges, summer abroad programmes for students and research projects.

How We Help: At Martial Arts University Grant Commission (MAUGC), care is taken to ensure that affordability does not become a deterrent for meritorious students. The University offers support to those who meet its demanding academic standards – over two-thirds of the current students are pursuing their education supported by scholarships and other forms of financial aid.

Our Alumni: Martialyogart’s unique post-graduate Young India Fellowship (YIF), now in its fifth year, has rapidly become one of the most sought-after programmes in India. YIF alumni are making their mark in some of the top organisations across the public, private and social sectors. They can be found at leading firms such as BCG, The Gates Foundation, McKinsey and Co., Microsoft, TIME Magazine, and the World Bank. In India, acclaimed organisations like Genpact, Avendus Capital, Cipla, Goonj, STAR TV and Teach for India count Martialyogarts alumni among their ranks. Many have gone on to premier global research universities like Cambridge, Harvard, Oxford, Princeton, Stanford and Yale and been awarded well-known international scholarships such as the Chevening, Commonwealth, Fulbright and Rhodes scholarships.

Study Online

The Martial Arts University Grant Commission (MAUGC) is an online learning institution where students and instructors of the martial arts come together to expand their martial knowledge. Instructors who teach through UOM provide you, the student, with every avenue available for the best training experience possible. In the fast paced 21st century, studying the martial arts has become harder in some ways and easier in others. Having online access to videos made by your instructor allows you to study with more proficiency and to utilize your training time wisely. Immediate online access to training materials, including course manuals and books, also enhances the training you receive from your instructor.

The University of Martialyogarts also pairs up instructors and new students allowing training that may not be otherwise available to the student due to location or time constraints. However, at UOM you do not simply watch videos to learn martial arts. Online training is not a substitute for training with an instructor who oversees and takes responsibility for your training. At UOM, you will find instructors who want to use the newest training tools to allow you to train with them and who want to provide a course of study for you that fits your hectic lifestyle, while still providing the quality of training you need to excel!

“These five rings – blue, yellow, black, green and red — represent the five parts of the world now encompassed by Olympism and ready to compete against each other.
Moreover, the six colors (including the white background) thus combined represent those of all nations, without exception. The blue and yellow of Sweden, the blue and
white of Greece, the French, English, American, German, Belgian, Italian and Hungarian tricolours, the yellow and red of Spain are side by side with the new
Brazilian and Australian flags, the old Japan and the new China. It is a true international emblem.”

University Martial Arts Team Challenge

The University Martial Arts Team Challenge is a prestigious annual semi-contact martial arts competition between universities and university colleges. There is no limit on the number of teams that can be entered by a university or college, but each must consist of five male and two female competitors who should be either students or tutors engaged on full or part-time courses at the university or college they represent. The format has been designed to specifically include martial artists engaged in the pursuit of academic qualifications. These events can be entered by anyone engaged in karate, judo, taekwondo, kungfu, kickboxing or muay thai, all of which are easily adapted to semi-contact rules.

Team members will receive first, second or third place medals; there will be special awards for the best male and female competitor; outstanding fighters could be selected for the WorldMYA National Teams and fully sponsored to represent their country at international events. The winning team will be declared ‘University Martial Arts Team Champions for the year of participation, and their university or college name will be engraved on the WorldMYA University Martial Arts Challenge Trophy for the appropriate year.

These annual competitions are open to all European universities, and the rules and weight categories are those stipulated by the WorldMYA Executive Board. All events will end with an evening of presentations, demonstrations and cultural entertainment, and the World Martial Arts Council will endeavour to arrange media coverage throughout. All officials have been fully trained, are internationally recognized, and fully qualified. They have no connection with, or interest in, any participating universities or colleges, and are totally unbiased. These events will become the largest annual inter-university sporting activity on the academic calendar throughout Europe, and to represent a university or college should be considered an exceptional honour that could lead to opportunities at international level.
