At UWM our vision is to create a new global sport that reignites and champions weapons-based martial arts in an exciting but honourable format. We believe that everyone has the right to enjoy all events and online environments in a safe, enjoyable and supportive way. This extends to our valuable members, fans, competitors, staff, contractors, and volunteers. All our Gladiator Members are required to abide by our simple Code of Conduct when attending events or online environments.
