As with the policy for all of our Hall of Fame inductions, only those who show will be inducted and those that do not will still stay eligible to be inducted at a later date. A number of inductees are deceased so if anyone has an email address for the deceased inductees survivors, please forward it to me at the earliest so I can notify their spouse/family. A few inductees may be unable to travel because of age or infirmity and exceptions may be made for those.
If you wish to make sure someone is included in the nominations, please forward as soon as possible, their name, category – coach, athlete, referee, RSO Chairman or organizer, or National Staff and preferably an email address for that individual.
Once we know who will be inducted, formal notifications will be sent to everyone.
Tickets for the Hall of Fame induction ceremony are $72. There will be an optional trophy type award available for an extra cost if the inductee so desires. The details on this trophy type award will be announced to those who will be coming. As we get closer to the date and seats are sold, the cost for the event will rise.
The Hall of Fame is expected to be a sell out so you may wish to get your tickets early. You can register on line at REGISTER HERE or send your check to USA Karate Federation 1550 Ritchie Road Stow, Ohio 44224. Tickets to the induction ceremonies are on a first come, first served basis.
