Why should I join?

Your Life Membership and President’s Club Life Membership fees go into the USJF Endowment Trust. The Endowment is now over $600,000. The proceeds of the trust are directly channeled into USJF development programs. This helps USJF continue to build our programs for juniors, seniors, masters, kata, coaches, teachers, and referees. The financial support that comes from the Endowment assists all of our USJF programs. The principal of the trust is protected from being expended for its perpetuity.
