Hall of Fame

The United States Martial Artist Association International Martial Arts Hall of Fame is an annual event that began in 1999 in Frederick, Maryland. It is a program that recognizes instructors, students of all martial arts styles/disciplines as well as civilians that participate in the overall activity of the martial arts community at a high level. We do not allow awards to anyone that just practices the martial arts. The individual does not have to hold the rank of black belt. However, this person must rise above all others by going well beyond the normal daily activity. This program is a true international program. We have inducted many individuals from all over the world. From the Ukraine Olympic team members to countrymen and statesmen. Recognition can be made for members of the association as well as non-members. We have special categories that recognize those who protect us on a daily basis as well as come to our rescue when we need medical attention as well as help us in a fire situation.

If you know of someone that has gone that extra step and deserves to be recognized, complete the nomination ballot via the link below. The categories are listed in a drop down menu. If you have any questions dealing with any category or even the worthiness of the individual, contact Supreme Grandmaster Rankin at the earliest convenient time.
