Why a non-profit?
A core group of Master Koyama’s students chose to make the successor organization to Arizona Karate Association a nonprofit corporation. The nonprofit status aligns with our dedication to karate-do as a martial art. In addition, we share in the responsibilities of teaching and maintaining the dojo; we are all volunteers, and none of us is paid for teaching. Membership dues and donations go to the everyday maintenance of the dojo, and towards future renovations to the space, and additional educational opportunities, such as inviting special guest instructors and ensuring our instructors keep developing their karate-do. If you are interested in making a tax-free donation to the dojo, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
