Dedicated to Grand Masters Peter Urban, Sid Campbell, Ken Knudson,Howard Jackson, Larry Caster, Robert Trias, Mako and Master Al Weiss

We are is losing an entire generation of fine Black Belts, men who laid the  foundation for, and developed the strongest system of martial  arts in the world.  The passing of each saddens me greatly.  .

I suggest that you seek out, and talk with as many from that generation as possible.  When they pass, there will never be the likes of them again. Never.

Our Sport Karate Museum  relies on Donations of your generosity to keep the Office, On-Line Museum and Living Legends Roast in the public, we appreciate all that you would do to keep the History alive!

There is a legend of ancient Greek history that is told of a huge hall the size of three football fields with knowledge of some of the greatest minds to ever walk the earth. Through the years it was destroyed by time, earth and disrespect . It had recorded the progress of these great minds and now it is almost completely gone!

The History Sport Karate  has not been recorded yet!!

We are just now catching up to what was past tense to them. How much farther could we be ahead if we take care of it now?

Professor Gary Lee, Ju-Dan

Founder and Karate Historian


Our museum’s vision is a story that unfolds before the eyes and senses of ones self, a mystery, a fable, so many stories to be told. an authentic history of sport martial arts and relics, uniforms, belts and documents of the glorious past forty years of a sport that is long overdue on statistics and history.1946-1999.

 The adventure of the  Sport Karate Museum™!

The detail must be authentic to the culture that you stand in.

The Five main houses are

The memory of our past sport martial arts leaders are priceless and we are  going to build a home for their memories. Imagine a bust of the past leader in bronze or silver detailed to his authentic look and style. 

Click on a button, A hologram will appear maybe a lady of fame or maybe just a spoke person. 

They start talking, going in detail who, what, when and where this person is famous for his legacy men like, Mas Oyama, Don Nagle, Robert Trias, Ed Parker, Sid Campbell, Ken Eubanks, Moses Powell, Pat Morita, Glen Rabago, Professor Visitacion, Peter Urban, John Kuhl, Al Weiss, Howard Jackson, Ken Knudson,  Stuart Quan and all others we have lost who gave their life to Sport Karate and the martial arts.

Exhibiting the founding members first and the living legends second, we will create the streets of adventure laid out such as Chuck Norris Ave. runs into Bill Wallace circle but you have cross Mike Stone Blvd. first, making it into a maze of educational, inspirational and entertaining fun –Aa community within the website teaching you the History of Sport Karate In America/The Golden Age (1968-1986) of your favorite Celebrities, Super Stars and Rising Stars!

A history of sport karate/martial arts in photographs, books, videos, articles, magazines, newspapers and special relics of the past sign diplomas of famous sport karate heroes and champions. You’ll get to see up close old belts from all styles from retired and past legends . . . awards, autographs, rare and one of a kind certificates, patches, decals, rings, old papers and ancient documents, ancient and modern weapons from the five houses, uniforms and never seen before by the general public — which can only be seen here at the Sport Karate Museum.

This is a major project.

It will take a team of avid martial artist teachers and their devoted students and other experts to make this dream a reality.

We need your help in the unification of this huge undertaking for the respect of the past and the teaching of the present so future generations can learn their origins and pass the knowledge on to others who see it.

Gary Lee is the voice of Karate.”
– Michael Matsuda, President of The Martial Arts History Museum.

“Professor Gary Lee should be given tremendous credit for his extraordinary effort to create a Black Belt Museum. The martial arts museum will be an institution that provides inspiration to the entire martial arts world. Not only a place honoring all of the pioneers in our industry, but also a place that informs, entertains and inspires other young martial artist to dream that one day, they too will be inducted in this prestigious museum.I look forward to one day in the near future visiting the museum as soon as it opens.”

Keith Vitali, Black Belt Magazine Hall of Fame

“Gary is a historian, a educator, a actor, a entertainer, a Samurai and a Big kid role up into one heck of a role model for kids, young adults and parents.
I have really enjoyed watching his talent grow into the force of a sport karate museum for the world.
There is no one I know who has the elite history he does in sport  karate, after all  he sold me back in 1982 to be the first martial arts show Astroworld  had and help create many shows after that year.with fight scenes, high falls, tricks, weapons and comedy
The Hollywood Stunt Show was a big hit and Gary played the lead.
Gary is like a Tsunami, this huge wave that  hits you with out any warning but you love the ride and you can not wait to get hit again and again!
If  Gary puts his passion into The Sport Karate Museum like he has his acting and showmanship , another winner!
