Mark Kemp, former MCAA Chairman was presented The Grandmaster J.K. Lee Award for Ethics and Integrity on August 3, 2018 at the J.K. Lee City Youth Martial Arts dinner gala in Milwaukee, WI.  The J. K. Lee City Youth Martial Arts program provides youth in underserved communities an opportunity to learn within a supportive environment that fosters mutual respect, confidence, discipline and good sportsmanship, while promoting mental health, physical fitness, focus and well being.

The school outreach program and academy inside the Holton Youth and Family Center was established to help realize Grand Master Lee’s vision of martial arts being accessible to all children and families.  Mark has been an avid supporter of the programs mission for many years.

“We are very proud of the work that Mark Kemp has taken on, on top of everything else he does to give back to his industry and community.  I am always so surprised and proud of our industry when I have an opportunity to attend events such as this to honor folks in our industry”, said Jeff Buczkiewicz, President MCAA.  “We are truly blessed to have such wonderful people in our industry.”
