What’s So Special About the WMARA?
If you have done any study of the history of Martial Arts in the United States, you will know that all of the enhancements and improvements in instruction, equipment innovations, and competitive events have been developed and improved in the United States since the introduction of the Martial Arts to our country since the 1950’s.
The 13 endorsers who were instrumental in all of the progress in this activity are considered to be not only pioneers in the industry but as founders who are highly respected and admired for their countless contributions.
These original 13 endorsers are:
J.Pat Burleson Steve Armstrong Dr. Maung Gyi Jim Harrison Gene Le Bell
Joe Lewis Edmund Parker Jhoon Rhee Allen Steen Robert Trias Bob Wall
and Bill Wallace.
WMARA founder, Grandmaster J. Pat Burleson, at his passing, has entrusted its leadership to Grandmaster Jim Butin to carry on the work of this prestigious association.
