MAAIS - About Us

Home  /  About Us  /  MAAIS



MAAIS is a specialised Martial Arts, Fitness and Sports Brokerage based in Melbourne and servicing all States and Territories of Australia.

They believe protecting a client's assets is paramount, but also feel its important to offer a number of related business tools, to help make them become more successful.

The principal of the team at MAAIS has over 40 years experience in the Martial Arts / Fitness Industries and 20+ years arranging insurance. This experience is particularly important in understanding how schools / gyms / studios / academies / clubs operate, so their insurance package is fit for purpose. Over the years many of these types of businesses have diversified by adding new equipment and activities that may not be covered in a standard policy.

We call this 'blending' when a martial arts academy introduces a gym section, and or an obstacle course, a cafe and child minding services for example. The insurer needs to know if you run a club out of a church hall / community centre (hourly rental set up) or what is deemed a full-time facility where the owner leases or owns a factory / warehouse / shopfront set up. Each school is rated differently according to the precieved exposures by the insurer, which needs to be noted. As the insurance industry faces many changes due to multiple disasters from fire, floods and pandmeics, this adds to the revaluation of premiums.

National Managing Broker Graham Slater NMB for MAAIS brings a wealth of knowledge from both the insurance and martial arts industries, to the company. He has operated numerous martial arts schools / gyms over a 35+ year period. He still resides as Chairman of the International Martial Arts Alliance and Martial Arts Australia. He has also worked as an expert witness on insurance claims giving him greater insights into the inner workings of the claims process, to their conclusion. His contributions have been used to formulate martial arts risk factors for each style and the wordings / endorsements for each policy. This expertise is particularly useful for insurance clients who want to know what happens from an incident, to the settlement of a claim and how to avoid the process.

Graham offers a unique service of an insurance health check, basically reading through what you have, asking questions about your business and outlining your status. This status shows if a business is over or under insured and whether they are paying too much. The biggest issue Graham has found, is clients having insurance they don’t need, mainly due to doubling up on policies when the landlord has already has it in place. Book Your Insurance Health Check!
