The Martial Arts History Museum, now in its 24th year, is the first and only museum dedicated to the preservation of the history, art, culture and tradition of the martial arts. It is the only place where the history of our pioneers, founders, champions and leaders will be presented to this and future generations. Because of Covid, our pioneers are passing away faster than ever before so we need your help. We need to expand to a 15,000 square foot facility; big enough to have a theater and display room and give tours to the schools. Dragonfest is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we encourage your sponsorships to keep history alive.

The museum is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization so your booth purchases, sponsorships and tickets sales are tax-deductible.
