Museum Update and News

Museum News and Updates for Sept./October 2023
Relocation Status: Well, in case you haven’t heard, after 5 months of negotiations of a nearly 50-page lease for the new place, terms were done and all we needed was their signature. In that same week they received another offer and decided to go with them. They never gave us an answer, we never heard back from them, we didn’t even receive any message and we were actually just waiting to move in. We didn’t find out until we saw it online.

So, what happens next? We move forward. There will be other places and we will try again. Don’t give up hope! Who knows, maybe Jackie Chan or Chuck Norris or someone who has benefited greatly from the martial arts, may consider making a large donation to the museum? You never know.
