The United States Karate Alliance is a member organization open to all styles and all systems of martial arts. The goal of the organization is to establish a national and international network of martial art schools and individual members all united in the martial arts. Through this network, the Alliance has established ranking standards, internationally recognized rank certification, a national tournament circuit, a national points competition, and the sharing of martial arts information through workshops, seminars, tournaments, and an arena open for communication. The Alliance is a multi-faceted organization that offers students of the martial arts the opportunity to further their skills, knowledge, and understanding. We can all learn from each other, enhancing our martial arts style, while at the same time remaining true to the principles of our own traditional systems. We welcome our members ideas and suggestions so that we may grow together.
