A Review of the Martial Arts Museum
Most people wouldn’t realize that in the city of Pasadena, CA there are 27 Martial Arts Dojo’s and just Three McDonalds. In the State of California there are 13,000 studios and there are 30,000 studios all over the United States, with as many as 300 students each. In fact 2.7 million people in the US have engaged in some type of Martial Arts Training in the course of their life. Also over 17 million people are involved in Yoga which is considered a form of martial art training.
The Martial Arts Museum was started in Woodland Hills, CA. This non profit organization is not about pumping up who is the best in Martial Arts, nor is it any type of Sports Museum. It gives over 4 million Martial Arts Students a deeper look at the various Asian Artforms and how these art forms affect Western Culture. While you are here you’ll learn about Asian Traditions, Music & Customs which have their impact on the various Asian Martial Art Forms.
Seminars, Language Classes and Workshops are also held to educate people on Asian Culture. You can join as an individual for $50.00 per year or $100.00 per year for the family. Or you can get the elite Dragon Membership for $100.00 per year. Since this is a non profit organization all memberships are tax deductible. There are no complimentary memberships given for any reason. Even the original founders pay for their membership each year.
When you get access to this Museum, you’ll be able to see a ton of Samurai Swords. You’ll also get access to items from Enter The Dragon, Kung Pow and others. They even have their own film equipment so they can stage their own movies here. This museum provides a safe haven for youth to channel their energy in less of a negative direction and in more of a positive one. So far this museum has attracted over 5,000 visitors and have brought in money to the community by eating at city restaurants and residing in the local hotels.
