The Mikki Bort Martial Arts Foundation

We use traditional martial arts and educational lecture to develop disadvantaged youth and adults with discipline, honor and respect.

We are a Pennsylvania Non-Profit Corporation with IRS 501(c)3 charitable organization status.

Master Mikki Bort has been a lifelong Martial Artist. After losing her parents at the age of 11, Mikki’s grandmother sent her to a local dojo in the hopes that she would find diversion from the tragedy. She found that diversion and more; leadership, family and a life goal of sharing that experience with others. Mikki continued her path through the Arts and soon achieved great respect within the community; from other martial artists and other community members. Master Bort began the next leg of her journey of giving back to the community through the martial arts in 1990, when she accepted her first student at Champion Martial Arts. Master Bort and her students give back to the local community through annual participation in the Albion County Fair, conducting anti-bullying campaigns at local schools and many other activities. The Foundation is governed by the school Master with fiduciary and program oversight by a Board of Directors with a mission to ensure that the valuable experiences of martial arts is not kept from those without the money to pay for them. Strategy and daily operations are managed through monthly Board meetings and semi-monthly reporting on program fundraising and distributions. Fundraising events and other program funding occurs through our donors, volunteers and sponsors.

Mission: To provide an educational and charitable environment where children and teens can come to be supported by a second family which teaches anti-bullying, confidence, self-esteem, leadership; shares traditional values and guides students through life concepts utilizing training in: traditionally taught Martial Arts of Goshin Jutsu Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Tai Chi; structured lecture curriculum and formal youth mentorship programs.

[08/26/19]   HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!

Northwestern is back in action today! Let's take this time to remind students and parents of a few things:

1. We follow Northwestern's Activity schedule. Any days marked as "No School", we will not hold classes.
2. Same thing goes for the weather policy. Hopefully, we don't have to enforce this for a few months!
3. Class Times are going to remain the same, as of now. If we come to find the academic schedules overlap too much, we can address possible time changes.

We hope everyone had a great first day of school, and look forward to hearing about it on the first day of class for the school year!!!
