The World's Most Prestigious Awards Banquet
Once a year we gather to recognize and honor those who have sacrificed to make the martial arts better for us all. Inductees into the United States Martial Arts Hall Of Fame are carefully selected from thousands of nominations received every year and ALL nominations are reviewed and carefully chosen to recognize ONLY those that have made real contributions to the arts. This exclusiveness is brought to you through the United States Martial Arts Hall Of Fame and it's distinct notoriety in the martial arts world. The 2019 Event will be held in Louisville KY at the Sheraton Louisville Riverside Hotel, across the historic Ohio River Bridge from downtown Louisville, KY.

The mission of the United States Martial Arts Hall of Fame is to recognize those martial artists that have made a profound difference. Unlike other Halls of Fame events that have followed us, we do not limit our inductees to celebrities and movie stars. Our goal is to serve the fundamental martial arts community. We honor all people that dedicate themselves to excellence; both the well known as well as the hidden treasures that never see the limelight.
The USMAHOF celebration is a black tie event during which the accomplishments of inductees are presented to the entire audience. After a world class meal, each inductee is highlighted and individually honored by being brought on stage and presented the USMAHOF achievement plaque. The event is enjoyed as a social event as well. Martial artists from around the U.S. and the world are able to visit as peers. It is a time where special people are recognized, camaraderie is enjoyed and the martial arts are celebrated. The Hall of Fame event is a time when lifelong friends are made.
We encourage you to join us in our next Hall of Fame banquet and celebration. It is a time like no other and one that will be with you forever. We ask all martial artists around the globe, if you know of a martial artist that has made a real difference, please take time to let us know about it. Their achievements need to be recognized.
