In Partnership with USAMA

About us

Our Mission

The Arizona Association of Martial Artists is in partnership with the U.S. Association of Martial Artists.

Established in January 2017 we are committed to broadening the USAMA community in the Southwestern United States by providing students further opportunities to complete against other martial artists of all disciplines, styles and levels in a fair & safe environment. We support all students who want to share their knowledge and skill within our community by offering seminars, demonstrations and continuous learning opportunities.

Arizona Association of Martial Artists supports the goals and values of our partner organization USAMA, established by Mrs. Sue Hawkes and founded on the principles and ideals of Grandmaster Robert A. Trias and Master James H. Hawkes.

The AZAMA depends on the talent & efforts of its volunteers who are mutually vested in the welfare and future of America's Karate participants
