It is our goal to move into a much larger location. A larger facility would allow us to install a theater, a resource center, a museum store and even a small coffee shop. We would each of you would come to our aide with a generous tax-deductible donation to the museum. It is our hope to continue to open the doors to diverse cultures to a new generation of young people. Through your assistance, we could ensure the history of the martial arts, the historic contributions of those who have come before us, won’t be lost or worst, forgotten. Help us grow by making a donation today.
