What’s Inside a Martial Arts History Museum?

A non-profit organization, the Martial Arts History Museum is designed as an educational, cultural and artistic experience in which visitors and young people can learn about each of the different Asian countries (China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, the Philippines, etc.) and how martial arts played a significant role in their culture, history and traditions. The Martial Arts History Museum is something the whole family can enjoy from traditional Japanese Samurai, Theodore Roosevelt studying judo, Chinese lions, our step into the Olympics to such items as the Karate Kid headband, Mortal Kombat shield, etc.

Visit The Martial Arts Museum

Our goal is to make the Martial Arts History Museum fun for both men and women, boys and girls. The Martial Arts History Museum is about history, artistry and more. It is a glimpse into Asian history and the positive influence the martial arts has had on West society. It is a look at how the martial arts plays a unique role in culture and tradition.

The Martial Arts History Museum was designed by the artists of the Walt Disney Company, Dreamworks, The Simpsons and Halloween professionals who kindly donated their time and services to make the Martial Arts History Museum an enjoyable place for the whole family. Type is large, walls are colorful and photos are blown up similar to the features seen at Disneyland.

The Museum provides a self-guided tour and if you read and watch all the videos, it will take a minimum of 40 minutes (some people have taken 3 hours). Flash photography and videos are permitted and encouraged in the Museum. You will learn about things you never imagined.
