Welcome to KIAI, the Karate Instruction Assistance Initiative. KIAI is a volunteer-run, nonprofit 501(c)(3) charitable organization.


Our Mission

KIAI's mission is to ensure that no one is denied the opportunity to benefit from quality karate instruction due to the inability to pay. We fulfill that mission by raising funds in order to provide financial assistance to qualifying families in the form of karate scholarships.

There are many well-documented benefits that result from taking part in a quality martial arts program. We invite you to learn more about KIAI and consider helping us by making a donation, sponsoring or participating in one of our events, or volunteering to support our efforts to enable more youth  experience those benefits first hand.
