The American Society of Karate was established in 1970 . The A.S.K. is an association designed to teach
American Karate to ages 5 - 80 in a positive ever changing system. New ideas and fresh approaches to the
art, sport and self defense aspects of karate are constantly being added to the system. In addition, its
objectives are to run fair and unbiased tournaments, to organize karate camps and to expand the student's
knowledge with various seminars as well as to enable the student to positively accept and meet whatever
challenges they may encounter during their training.
Its goal is not necessarily to be the largest but to be the best.
A.S.K. Motto ---- "Whatever It Takes"
A.S.K. Goal ---- "Not To Be The Largest But To Be The Best"
