Organizational structures of the martial arts offer in Cologne
The aim of this study is to analyse the organisational structures of the martial arts offer in Cologne. For this purpose, the providers of martial arts and martial arts in Cologne were asked about their structures and their offerings. The survey showed that about two thirds of the martial arts providers are commercially oriented. The commercial martial arts providers showed far-reaching structural similarities to clubs offering martial arts. The results of this work are of particular interest for existing and potential martial arts providers in Cologne. Furthermore, the study will help to understand the organizational structures of martial arts in Germany and the role of the German Olympic Sports Federation in martial arts in Germany.
