Dear Students and Parents of USA Karate Academy,

First, I want to thank you for your ongoing support of USA Karate Academy, and the Pacific Northwest Amateur Athletic Union Karate District.

I am grateful for all your generosity, and loyalty to our dojo, but most of all for everything I learned from you, and our irreplaceable relationships throughout our collective martial arts journey.

After 40 years of offering martial arts training, due to the impact of COVID-19 and ongoing restrictions placed on our business I must make one of the hardest decisions I have ever been faced with. We have lost so much ground; there simply are not enough members nor resources for us to draw from.

USA Karate Academy must cease operations. The last class for the dojo is December 29, 2020. Those who recently paid for the next month of training will receive a refund, (prorated based on your draft date) by way of a credit back to your designated form of payment on file.

I am proud of all you have done to develop in your martial arts journey and am especially heartened by your determination and grit. Those who were nearing your black belt grade, I encourage you to continue practicing what you know. When it is safe for in person small fitness classes to be offered again, your skills will surface, and you will be able to attain your goals.

I hope that you and all your family stay safe and healthy for many years to come.
