DISCLOSURE: Our National Training Camp and Hall of Fame Banquet serve as our Association's major annual fundraiser.  You may be asking, "Why should I pay a fee to be inducted?"  It's a good question, and a valid question.  We are quite transparent into why we charge a fee and how this money is spent.  We want you to know our WHY and how your money will be used to support our efforts to serve and support the Global Martial Arts Community.  We've prepared a PDF to explain this, which you can access by clicking here: WHY PAY A FEE?
