History

In 1985, Grandmaster Jason (Sang) Ho Cho started the World Martial Arts Federation (WMAF) in Texas. Its main focus was Traditional Martial arts training. The WMAF supplemented it’s traditional training with tournament development and promotion and certifying black belt instructors, master instructors, and referees. As the popularity of martial arts increased in the United States, the need for an institution where mastery of physical skill paired with a formal education founded in the roots of martial arts theory and tradition, became apparent to the WMAF. Thus Amerstate University was created.

Amerstate University is a Wisconsin non-stock, not-for-profit corporation and 501©3 tax Exempt..
