Community service

Did you know, that besides our Make-a-wish support, that the Karate Institute of America frequently performs community service?  KIA has been involved in training law enforcement officers as well as elementary school students.  We are always looking for ways to promote martial arts and give back to the community.

Kick-a-thon 2014 Begins
Students are reminded that KIA's 25th annual Kick-a-thon charity event began on April 1st. Pledge cards are available at a Dojo near you.

In the last quarter-century, KIA has raised over $343,000 and sponsored over 50 wishes. Help us keep the tradition going strong!

Our annual Kick-a-thon picnics will be held Saturday June 7th at Strawberry Lane Metro Park (Ohio) and McLain State Park (Houghton MI).
