American Karate Legacy Association

























Welcome to the new American Karate Legacy Association website!

A lot of new exciting developments have happened to roll out our new site.

First - we have opened a full-time, fully-equipped dojo at our AKLA Headquarters in Louisville, KY. At this location, we are now able to offer personal instruction, training classes, seminars, camps and conferences, teaching the full curriculum of the Elite-Fighters System of Martial Arts. You can obtain belt ranking in the categories of Kenpo Karate, Kickboxing, Grappling, Weapons Systems, and to pursue the highest level of the Elite-Fighters Black Belt.

Next, we have expanded areas where our certified instructors train and instruct. In the past, AKLA instructors were restricted to teaching only kenpo karate. Now, instructors can be certified to teach and promote a separate curriculum in kenpo, grappling, kickboxing and weapons! This will be a very positive addition to your schools, too. If you are interested in instructing in these areas, contact us for more details.

Just like our other website, this one is huge, too. There is a lot of content for you to study at this site. So spend some time and check out all of the links on our new site!

Thanks for visiting!
Check back often for the latest updates!

Note: We will continue to announce all promotions in the AKLA and Elite-Fighters in this announcement section. Previously, we had a special promotions chart. However, it had become unmanageable. We will maintain a Black Belt promotions chart, but all underbelt promotions will be announced in this section.

 The Elite-Fighters Kickboxing Course and the Grappling Course has begun in Louisville, KY. We believe this training is the best curriculum designed for kickboxing. We hope you join soon!
