Doug Yates Karate Foundation

The Doug Yates Karate Foundation is a non-profit organization (Registered 501c3), dedicated to providing karate training and character development for children and adults with financial needs and learning disabilities that may not be able to receive this type of training without assistance.

The foundation was established by Doug Yates, a master karate instructor from Xenia, Ohio and advocate for individuals with special needs and financial challenges.

The foundation's mission is to provide a supportive and inclusive environment for individuals to learn karate, build confidence, and develop important life skills such as discipline, focus, and self-awareness. The organization also aims to promote awareness and acceptance of individuals with disabilities in the martial arts community and beyond.

We are in-process of developing our sources of funding. Large or Small amou ts would be greatly appreciated. If you're interested in learning how to donate to this organization, please contact Doug Yates at 937-270-9564 email
