2019 Membership Dues

​Reminder that membership dues are coming up for the new year.  You even can beat the long lines at the first tournament by sending in your dues early to:

Mississippi Karate Association

406 Patrick Place

Butler, AL 36904

​Let me take this moment and tell you a little about the benefits of being a member of the MKA.  Cost is only $20.00 to join.  You will get $5.00 discount at each MKA event.  Also, every division that you compete in your points will be added over the course of the tournament season to get a chance at a state title, 1st, or 2nd runner up.  If that was not enough there is even an end of the year banquet.

So please join our association and have fun with us this year.  Hope to see everyone in 2019.
