Designed to make your life as a martial arts coach easier ...

With years of coaching experience, our co-founders understand what it takes to manage parents, classes and money. That's what has enabled us to create Coacha; a Martial Arts club manager designed to help you focus on the things you love - teaching and training. With a simple but powerful interface that cuts admin time in half, keeps all of your students' details to hand no matter where you are, and is proven to minimise missed payments, Coacha is the perfect solution for streamlining your day-to-day martial arts club management.

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates and new features, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't draw you in with claims of 'FREE to use' then pile on extra charges later for unlocking functionality that should be included in the first place.
Few providers can make all of these claims. But we can.

Martial Arts software FAQs

What are the limits with Coacha's martial arts school software?

There really are no limits. You have unlimited everything with Coacha. Members, instructors, classes and sessions, registers, subscription plans, email…the full works!

The only thing you pay extra for are text messages. And these are as low as anyone else in the market at 4.5p per text message.


Is martial arts attendance software easy for members & parents to use?

If you want members and parents to login to Coacha, then yes, your own bespoke ‘Member’s Portal’ is very easy to use. It has been painstakingly designed to be really easy to use, so there’s no excuse for people not to login!

Great for them, time saving for you, and having martial arts attendance software with your own logo on it really makes your martial arts club look professional and well organised.

What’s more, members get to see all the personal info you have on them and they can update and/or download it if they want (great for your club’s GDPR compliance!)

There are also FREE Andriod and iOS apps ( https://www.coacha.co.uk/Features/iOS-App-Android-App) available for everyone to use too. What’s not to like?


If I use martial art software, will it help with my accounts?

Absolutely, as it keeps everything digital and streamlined. You can see whose has paid you what, when and how. Plus, you can keep a very close eye on how much money your martial arts club is taking. And if it is losing anything from your people not paying you.

What’s more, accountants love martial arts studio management software that they can download from and integrate your martial arts club’s financials to the software that they use. Software like Xero, Quickbooks or Sage to name but a few all help with making tax digital (MTD) (link to https://www.coacha.co.uk/More/Making-Tax-Digital-in-Sport).


Do I need a card reader to take payments if I use martial art school software?

Do away with the expense and hassle of terminals and readers. You can take card payments through Stripe and direct debits through GoCardless.

Need a member to pay for a T-shirt or kit? You can send them a one-off payment request by email or take a payment right there in front of them using the Coacha interface.

Not having a card reader not only reduces your costs but simplifies your online billing processes straight away. It also makes your martial arts club look professional and well organised.


What happens if payments fail?

Let’s face it, payments do sometimes fail and for various reasons. Only the best martial arts class management software has a payment retry process, especially one that retries up to four times.

Whether a bank error, a cancelled payment or just insufficient funds, having a robust subscription management system (link to https://www.coacha.co.uk/Features/Money-Subscription-Management) means you can simply ‘set and forget’ freeing you to get on with tasks that are more enjoyable than admin!

You can choose to be notified that a payment has failed and is being retried, or just set Coacha so that you’re notified when the last attempt has failed. Just think of the amount of time this will save you with chasing people for money they owe you…


Does martial art school management software help me if I have an emergency?

When looking for a hand with martial arts school management, be sure to choose something where you will always have Emergency Information to hand. It is essential you make sure you have emergency contact info available, as well as medical notes for all of your members.

Also, make sure that whatever martial arts software you go for it has the ability to work ‘offline’ for when you don’t have mobile internet access or a decent wifi signal. Coacha’s apps are designed to work without internet access and will automatically synch with Coacha the minute you get internet access again.


What stats and figures can I get from martial art software?

Performance, attendance, and financial data are crucial for any martial arts club that wants to stay at the top of their game. The best software for martial arts school should show you instantly your member attendance levels and who’s been putting the work in, and equally as much, who hasn’t.

It should also give you easy access to your headline financial info whether for the last week, month or whole year. Quick access like this means quick decisions can be made and you’ll always be in control of the money in your club.


With martial art management software I’m told I still need to comply with GDPR – will it help?

Any organisation that collects personal data must comply with GDPR legislation, and that includes martial arts clubs. The very fact that you choose to use martial arts software (free download here) (link to trial sign up page) itself will show that you have data protection built into the running of your club.

A bespoke ‘Member Portal’ such as those you get free with Coacha enable people to access the personal data you hold on them. Martial arts management software with this functionality will also give your users the ability to edit and download their data if they want to. This type of advanced functionality really is the gold standard of GDPR compliance.

Want to really get to grips with GDPR, why it’s important and what you should be doing to keep your club compliant? If you do then download our FREE GDPR in sports guide which not only explains GDPR but also gives you practical tips you can implement immediately.


Can I get free attendance registers too?

Any martial arts membership software that’s worth considering simply must have automatically generated attendance registers. Having these automatically produced for you saves both time and hassle with your martial arts club’s admin. They should be 100% free too and not an add on or upgrade feature.

You should be able to quickly add members in, set up your classes and hey presto, your registers are automatically created. When you, your coaches or your members log in, they get to see what's on straight away. This is an essential factor to look for in any martial arts school management software.

Coacha’s advanced attendance register features mean that you can enable classes or sessions that people can book straight on to without coming to you first. On the day of the class itself they can also check themselves again without tying up any of your staff’s time.


Can I get martial arts management software free?

If you’re after a free martial arts software, then why not try Coacha Lite which is completely FREE Membership Management Software?


Can people book on to classes themselves?

Not all martial arts software allows members to book on to classes directly themselves. However, by enabling ‘make class bookable’ in Coacha you can reduce your time on admin and speed up the way in which your members can register for classes.

Great if you run open classes that people can book onto if they want to attend, and with setting a class size you can ensure that your classes are never over-subscribed. Your members can simply log into your Member Portal and book up in just a few taps or clicks.


I only operate during term time – does this matter?

Many martial arts clubs have term time/seasonal classes. The best martial arts software should give you the ability to have start and end dates for your classes as opposed to just weekly or monthly options.

With unlimited classes and registers, Coacha is perfect for setting start / end periods to whatever you want. Great for school term-based classes as well as events such as one off competitions, or showcases or exhibitions.


I get people turn up unexpectedly to my martial arts studio classes – how can I add these people?

It happens. People turn up unexpectedly to a class or event and you know that you need to collect some of their personal details just so they can join in. Some martial arts studio software doesn’t cater for this in a way that is quick and easy to sort out on the day.

With Coacha’s martial arts attendance app, you can avoid delays when extra people turn up unexpectedly. Quickly add them to the attendance register without having to mess around with the app settings or add a full new member. Then, after the class, you can go back and add more of their details in when you have more time.


Does martial arts studio management software help with safeguarding children?

When performing a martial arts school software comparison make sure that whatever you choose helps with safeguarding children. Make sure you are able to segment the children’s information so that only specific staff are able to see their personal information.

Coacha lets you set different levels of access as you don’t want people seeing the wrong data. The messaging centre also has NPSCC CPSU text and email rules built in so that people are unable to contact children directly without other’s being copied in. This can include other members, staff, parents and even your safeguarding officer.


Can I send text messages to people using martial art management software?

Check out independent software for martial arts school reviews and always make sure that any software or app that you use only partners with industry leading SMS specialists. Coacha partners with the best SMS service in the UK - TextLocal. You'll enjoy amazing rates, quick delivery and accurate reporting. No need to use your mobile text allowance again!


I only want to message specific people. Can I do this with martial arts management software?

Being able to select and control who receives your messages from your martial arts attendance app is very important. You really don’t want to bombard people with messages not relevant to them.

As part of your martial arts club management software, Coacha enables you to customise who you send your messages to with ease. Send to just your coaches, members of a certain class, to a specific group, or to everyone ... you're in total control.

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates and new features, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't draw you in with claims of 'FREE to use' then pile on extra charges later for unlocking functionality that should be included in the first place.
Few providers can make all of these claims. But we can.

Best Martial Arts Management Software – FAQs (Part III)

Is Coacha currently the best martial arts management software available?

Well, we don’t want to blow our own trumpet here, and to be honest, there may be other providers who also deserve to carry the “best martial arts management software” badge. With that said, we do believe that Coacha is easily among the best martial arts management software available today, because it offers the same premium features as the other martial arts club software providers, and more on top.

Our martial art management software, however, comes at a significant advantage: an unbeatable price that we can guarantee none of the other “best martial arts management software” can match!


I’ve heard that the best martial arts management software available today charge zero contractual fee. Is the same true for the Coacha martial art management software?

With our martial art management software, you get something even better: absolutely NO hidden or buried charges whatsoever. What you may not know about other martial art management software is that they will often ‘sneak in’ charges in the form of cancellation fee or, say, when you want to add more members than the provider’s package allows.


Such as low monthly fee to use the martial art management software sounds too good to be true. What’s the catch?

There’s no catch at all, we promise! Our martial arts school app is available to use for an unbelievably low price and we take great pride in the fact that we don’t cut too much into your profits like some of the other martial arts school app providers do.


Can a martial arts attendance app like Coacha help me build or manage my website?

Unfortunately, our martial arts attendance app has not been designed or does not have any functionality to help you build or manage your website. We do, however, have a very helpful Member Portal feature within our martial arts studio management software, which allows members to sign in, check availability, confirm or cancel classes, etc. just like they would through your website.


How much does martial arts studio management software cost in general?

Oh, you wouldn’t believe some of the prices martial arts studio management software providers are charging their customers! Many start at £40-50 but find a way to sneak in charges every now and then, while others are charging a ludicrous £200-£300+ each month!

With our martial arts studio management software though, price is a non-issue: fixed at low fee each month with no hidden charges whatsoever.


What are the benefits of using martial arts studio management software? What am I missing out on by not taking advantage of your martial arts school management software download?

There are many benefits of using software for martial arts school like Coacha, including:

  • The ability to streamline your grading admin tasks such as payments, invitations, updating personal data of multiple students, etc.
  • Streamline business reports such as total number of members or martial arts attendance cards
  • Automate emails and text messages for class reminders and more
  • Make student sign up, membership management and payment collection really easy
  • Create a convenient option as part of your onboarding process, such as inviting new members to sign an electronic waiver
  • Member Portal to allow students to check availability, stay updated on the latest club events, check their progress and much more

So, by not taking advantage of our martial arts school management software download you’re essentially missing out on a chance to make club management and administration a lot simpler and more cost-effective.


Can I get a demo for your software for martial arts school before buying it?

We don’t offer demos for our software for martial arts school, and there’s a mighty fine reason for it: a FREE 14-day trial which lets you try out all the premium features to see for yourself how you can benefit from using the Coacha software for martial arts school.


What happens when my software for martial arts school FREE trial is over? Can I extend it?

After the 14-day FREE trial for the martial arts attendance software expires, you’ll be prompted to continue using it for a super-low monthly fee.


Which software, apps or services does the Coacha martial arts attendance software integrate with?

Coacha is a standalone martial arts attendance software for the most part. With that said, our martial arts attendance software does integrate with GoCardless and Stripe for easy payments.


Can your martial arts attendance software help me with failed payments?

Definitely! As long as you have a Stripe or GoCardless (or both) account, you can set it up within your martial arts school management software to retry a certain number of times. Please have a quick read at this page to learn more about how this works.


Can the Coacha martial arts school management software be used to take termly payments or is this fixed to a monthly payment model only?

Coacha is a flexible piece of martial arts school management software which means you can set up your Stripe or GoCardless account to take termly payments too. This page contains all the information you need.


I need to pause a subscription plan. Is this possible within the martial arts school management software?

It is – go to ‘Money’ from the main menu, then select ‘Manage Plans’. View your listed subscription plans and you will see a ‘Pause’ option. That’s it!

Once you are ready to resume a plan within your martial arts school management software, select the ‘Play’ option.


Can you explain what the Money Dashboard feature is your martial arts class management software is and how it works?

Certainly! The Money Dashboard feature in your martial arts class management software helps you see your members’ transaction history. The way it works is that it contains a log of every financial action which took place between you and any one of your members (or their parents). So, whenever there’s a new financial transaction between you and your member (or their parent), the martial arts class management software will update the log.


I need help linking my martial arts class management software with GoCardless or Stripe – can I get support with this?

Absolutely! For GoCardless, follow the instructions here, and for Stripe, go to this page.


Are GoCardless and Stripe the only payment methods available in your martial arts class management software?

No, not at all! With Coacha’s martial arts school software, you can also take cash, BACS transfers and also Standing Orders. With that said though, nearly all our martial arts school software users prefer using GoCardless (for direct debit payments) and Stripe (for credit card payments). These allow you to take payments from the leading debit and credit cards, all at industry-best rates, of course!


Some of my members or their parents ask for a physical payment receipt – is there a feature in the martial arts school software that allows me to do that?

You’re in luck! Go to ‘Money’ and then ‘Money’ again from the main navigation bar. Search for your member through the list and once you’ve found him/her, select ‘View Profile’. Now click on ‘Payments’. Here, you will find the option to print out a receipt directly from your martial arts school software. Alternatively, your members / parents can login to either your Member Portal or one of the Apps and download the receipts themselves – one less thing for you to have to do!


Does the Coacha martial arts school software have the ability to show Financial Reports?

Indeed! Our martial arts management software does give you the option to download a financial report based on member, amount, payment type, timescale, etc.

To do this, access your martial arts management software’s Money Dashboard, go to ‘Money’ and then ‘Reports’. From there on, it’s all self-explanatory.


Will the Coacha martial arts management software allow me to take a sign-up fee directly from my club form?

Yes! We thought you might find this feature useful as some clubs want to take an initial fee from members to better engage them with the respective programme(s). The best part is, you can use either your Stripe or GoCardless integration from within the martial arts management software to take this payment.


Does your martial arts management software have a feature which automatically sends a notification to let members/parents know to set up their subscription prior to the payment date?

Even though our martial arts club software is highly capable to help you cut down your admin time in half, one of the things it does not do is sending reminders or notifications asking your members to set up their card details on time.

We highly recommend that you explain to every new member joining your club to set up their subscription before the payment date, as it would ensure that payments flow in smoothly each month on the designated date.


Is the Coacha martial arts club software similar to free martial arts software available to download?

Well, yes and no – it’s ‘free martial arts software’ in a way as there’s no setup fee or download fee to use the trial or paid version. But once your free trial is over, you do need to pay a low monthly to continue using the martial art school software.


I need to edit my login or update my profile information in the martial art school software. How do I do that?

In order to change your account information or login details, simply login to the martial art school software, and find the black bar at the top of the page. Click your profile photo next to your name.

To change your password to the martial art school software, click on ‘Manage Password’. To change personal details in your martial art school software, click the details, edit whatever you need to and click ‘Save’.


Help! I’ve forgotten my password to the martial arts studio software – can you help me retrieve it?

But, of course! These things happen, after all. Just launch your martial arts studio software, go to the top-right corner of the screen where you’ll see the option to log in. Below that, click on ‘forgot password’.

The new password to your martial arts studio software will be emailed right away to the address you used to register it.


Is setting up the martial arts studio software complicated like it is in most types of martial arts studio software available today?

Not at all! Our free martial arts school management software download comes with really easy setup instructions and you can do it on your own within a few minutes. But if you need a step-by-step guide, here it is.


Is there a way to change the language in my martial arts tracking app?

Yes, you can change the language in your martial arts school management software (free to download) – but only the terms, as the main language used for communicating with your coaches and members will still be English.

So, for example, “members” can be changed to “students” or “athletes”, “coach” to “sensi” or “professor”, “classes” to “sessions” and so on.


Can you show me how to add a new member in the martial arts school management software (free to download)?

Certainly! Adding a new member to your martial arts student management software couldn’t be easier. Simply launch it and in the main menu bar, you will see an option to ‘Add New User’. Follow the on-screen steps and that’s it.


I want to update my terms and conditions – is there a way to ensure that members receive the latest T&Cs in their martial arts student management app?

Yes, Coacha makes martial arts student management really easy by keeping convenience in mind at all times. Whenever you want to update the T&C, simply go to ‘Profile’, then ‘Club Settings’, and ‘Signup’.

From here, you can use the ‘Remove from form’ option to remove the document you wish to amend and re-upload – or, you could simply use the ‘Upload a file’ option to add a fresh T&C template for everyone to view from their martial arts student management app.


I need to update some of my club details – where do I find the option to do that from the martial arts student management app?

The black bar at the top of your martial arts database software Coacha page has a cog icon – click that and you’ll be able to edit all the respective club details.


Is the Coacha martial arts database software compatible with iOS and Android devices only?

While most of our customers prefer using the martial arts database software on their iOS/Android devices, we do offer compatibility with a Windows or Mac OS-based PC, and even the Xbox and PlayStation game consoles!

So, for whatever reason, if you prefer to use a desktop device for logging into your martial arts database software, there are quite a handful of options!


Do I need to set up my device a certain way, like install a specific kind of software, or is the Coacha martial arts database software ‘plug and play’?

Plug and play all the way! Once you’ve downloaded the martial arts software for free, just launch it, set it up, choose a login and password – you’re in!


I’ve seen many martial arts software (free to download) offer a discount when I buy a longer plan. Does the Coacha martial arts school management platform offer the same?

We’re currently not offering any discounts for annual subscriptions to use the martial arts school management platform because we believe our low monthly charge is already very competitive to begin with.


Even though Coacha is a martial arts management software free to download – Can I get a refund in case your martial arts club management software does not meet my requirements?

Absolutely correct on the first bit – Coacha is a martial arts management software free to download – however, we don’t offer refunds for our martial arts club management software because we’re charging a very fair monthly fee to begin with.

If you’re not happy with some of the features in our martial arts club management software, please let us know how we can improve things, although we’re already doing our best to make Coacha the best martial arts membership software you could possibly invest in.


Can a martial arts membership software like Coacha help me build my online community?

It can and it does this in several ways – the martial arts membership software helps you stay connected with your students in a hassle-free way, and when you’re exchanging emails and text messages, or sending out updates to hundreds of students when you need to – it’s easy to understand how the Coacha martial arts membership software will help you build and grow an online community.


Is a martial arts membership software like Coacha only meant for optimising day-today admin or can it also help with my business?

We take pride in the fact that Coacha is much more than martial arts membership software for streamlining everyday admin-related jobs. It gives you insights into the needs and behaviours of your students. This is especially important as it helps you spot specific trends or patterns to help make better business decisions.

As you watch your business grow, the additional students and admin-related tasks will never bog you down, because Coacha will still be there as your go-to martial arts software in the UK, available at the same fantastic price!


What happens after the FREE 14-day trial for the free martial arts club management software ends?

Once your trial expires, you’ll be prompted to continue using Coacha by subscribing to one of the pricing plans – we invite you to try it out and see for yourself why many hail it as the “best martial arts school management software” available right now!

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates and new features, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't draw you in with claims of 'FREE to use' then pile on extra charges later for unlocking functionality that should be included in the first place.
Few providers can make all of these claims. But we can.

Martial Arts App – FAQS

What is a martial arts app and how can it help me?

A martial arts app is a piece of software which drastically speeds up your admin time or, more accurately, cuts it in half!

By using a martial arts app like Coacha, for example, you can save so much time and money by automating daily admin tasks around class scheduling, membership sign-ups, online class bookings, sending broadcasts to let everyone know of an upcoming event, etc.

The list of benefits is nearly endless – we invite you to try out our martial arts app for FREE for 14 days to see precisely what we mean.


Can a martial arts app help me grow and expand my business?

Certainly! A martial arts app like Coacha in particular can help you gain more exposure and improve turnover by making everything from membership signups, class scheduling and online bookings to keeping everyone COVID-safe, and managing junior members’ private data – really, really easy.

Our martial arts app download is available for free, so you can see how these features work at no cost at all for 14 days.


After I do the martial arts app download (for free), is it free to use too?

Oh, we wish! As much as we want our martial arts app download to be free to use as well, we do need to charge you a small amount each month to keep things going on our end and fine-tune Coacha from time to time as a result!

We offer a FREE 14-day trial for our martial arts appointment software to let users get a fair idea of how they can benefit from its features and consequently grow their business.


I’ve seen many martial arts apps available for free on the internet – why isn’t Coacha free to use?

We’ve come across these martial arts apps too and while some of them may be free to use, we assure you almost none of them are offering the premium features we are.

Plus, most “free” martial arts apps lure users into clicking on the link because that’s how they generate most of their revenue – by generating the maximum number of clicks. Martial arts apps like these are not about providing a quality product, but rather about enticing people to click on their links and download the product, only to find something that doesn’t even function as promised.

Finally, any time to see “free” martial arts apps on the internet, exercise caution! They may let you download them for free, but there are almost always hidden charges that you’ll either end up paying up front or somewhere down the line, that’s a given!


Can I expect a larger member turnout by using a martial arts school app like Coacha?

This depends – for instance, if you already have a good sales and marketing strategy in place and are looking to further improve business by making accessibility and convenience a key priority for your members – then yes – a martial arts tracking app or martial arts training app can definitely help you improve member turnout.

You’ll find that our martial arts training app comes with an easily downloadable and viewable signup form, which makes the whole signup process a total breeze for potential members – for starters.


Can a martial art app help me improve training in any way?

Well, we can’t make any empty promises here (like some martial art app providers tend to do) but one of the key benefits of using a martial art app loaded with premium features is that it can facilitate your students’ training.

For example, when they use their martial art app to login and view class schedules, see what’s happening in the school through the Noticeboard feature or view the slots available to book training sessions with their favourite instructor – all of these collectively help you provide martial arts training sessions more effectively.

And that’s just one way the Coacha martial art app can facilitate training, as it also opens up the lines of communication between your coaches and students at all times. No one will ever come up to you saying that “I missed training” or “I didn’t get that notice” because every event and activity (including transactions) are documented in your martial art app.


How does class booking work in your martial art app?

Class booking is a very useful feature in Coacha that even the best martial arts apps either lack or simply don’t offer it in an easy-to-use and intuitive way. If you go to ‘Classes & Registers’ under the main navigation bar, you’ll find ‘New Class’. There’s a checkbox that says ‘People can book onto this class’. Check that and your students can book classes online and even view the booking timeslots available!

You will find that the best martial arts apps either do not offer this feature the way users want or make it complicated in some way or the other. But never with Coacha!


Is Coacha among the best martial arts apps I available today?

We believe it is among the best martial arts apps available and the reason is very simple: ease-of-use. We’ve designed it with a highly competitive price point in mind that even the best martial arts apps out there currently cannot match. In fact, the price and premium features we’re offering can’t be rivalled by the best free martial arts training apps currently available!

A quick word on these “best free martial arts training apps”: they are rarely free and tie you down with some kind of contract one way or another, so tread carefully! As for Coacha, we prefer not to carry the “best free martial arts training apps” label, because it is free to download and try for 14 days but not free to use from thereon.


Why can’t Coacha be among the best free martial arts training apps?

Well, we’d love to carry the “best free martial arts training apps” label, believe us! However, there’s an entire design and development team behind Coacha hard at work, constantly coming up with ways to improve it. This means that we do need to charge you a small fee each month – but it’s a fee that even the best BJJ apps out there can’t compete with!


Is Coacha among the best BJJ apps I can try out today?

Absolutely! We don’t want to be too self-praising but it is among the best BJJ apps you can try today primarily because:

  • It offers a very easy and straightforward way to book and schedule classes, and even venues.
  • It offers you a holistic view of your club so you know exactly where you stand, business-wise.
  • It shows statistics over time which can be used to come up with a better business plan or sales/marketing strategy
  • It has an easy-to-navigate interface which makes it easy for everyone from students and their parents/NOKs to your coaches and admin to take full advantage of the feature set.

While the best BJJ apps are charging users anything upwards of £70-100 each month, Coacha is available for a fraction of this cost. So, does it truly deserve to be among the best BJJ apps? You decide: download and try for FREE for 14 days!

Comparing Coacha with other software and apps?

A few things to remember…

Firstly, we don't charge by the member, as that gets costly for you. Also, we never show adverts to your members. And we don't charge for updates and new features, nor the use of our iOS & Android Apps. Above all though, we don't draw you in with claims of 'FREE to use' then pile on extra charges later for unlocking functionality that should be included in the first place.
