United States National Karate Association
Welcome to the USNKA Website.
Here you will find information about the USNKA and our Founder, Hanshi Jim Mather. You will also get some great historical information on the USNKA, how it came to be, what Hanshi’s journey throughout his life looked like and what led him to create the USNKA, one of the Oldest Traditional Martial Arts Associations in the United States. You will also be able to join the USNKA, and get links to our Association store containing lots of great ways to show your support for the Association including t-shirts, hoodies, polo shirts, coffee cups, and much more. All proceeds will go directly back into the USNKA, not into anyone’s pocket. We will strive to make your membership experience the best it can be!
