Large support group – A key benefit of being part of CKA is having a very large instructor support group, with online forums and discussions daily.

The head instructors are also available via email and phone to help you start and maintain a successful program.
Established curriculum – The CKA curriculum has been developed and tested over many years with the goal of allowing leaders and students to be able to see the steps along the path to black belt and know that nothing is left out or missed. The rank book helps keep the school, students and instructors focused on the right path.
Web presence – Ability to set up and maintain your own personal web site within the master web site for the association.T he web is designed for ease of use with many templates to customize your page, with web support constantly available and maintained automatically.

Thank you for your interest in becoming a Team Leader!


Working within the Christian Karate Association is an awesome and exciting ministry opportunity. I pray that your ministry will be an effective tool for evangelism and discipleship in your area. 

The Team Leader program has three major parts:


1. The Team Leader Training - How to start, run and maintain a Christian Karate ministry

2. Rank Training - Your personal karate training.

3. In person training and testing - All day event at our National Headquarters in Crosbyton Texas, USA on September 24th, 2022. 


You will need to complete both the Team Leader online training and the Rank training, approximately 6-8 weeks, before attending the seminar in September. 


The first step is to fill out the Team Leader Application and references. Once those have been completed, our staff will work through the application and references and if all looks good, enroll you into the Team Leader program. 

Upon enrollment, you will receive the information needed to start your training.
