Become a CKA Instructor

Become a Certified Instructor with the Christian Karate Association and join forces with CKA instructors to make a global impact.

Become a CKA Instructor and Change Lives for Christ around the World

People enter the realm of Christian Martial Arts teaching for various reasons, but at the heart of it all is a single, shared mission: spreading the word of Christ. This calling often resonates with those who have a passion for martial arts and feel drawn to ministry work. Many venture into starting a school, quickly realizing the challenges of initiating, operating, and sustaining a thriving Christian Martial Arts ministry.

At the Christian Karate Association, we've built a robust global network of instructors, offering continual training and support to help you realize your dream of leading a successful Christian Martial Arts ministry. Let's join forces to influence the world positively for Christ through the power of Martial Arts.


This is Life-Changing

"Working with the Christian Karate Association has changed my life! Being able to work and learn from other instructors and the head instructor has enabled me to go from teaching in a small room in a church to recently renting a 6000 sf commercial facility and offering my community a powerful Christian outreach and discipleship program. I would not have been able to achieve this without the support of CKA."

- Sensei Chris Arndt - CKA Instructor - Hayden Idaho
