Master Cashion has set a strong example through both his martial arts success and his commitment to giving back to the community. After nearly losing his life as a volunteer firefighter at age 16, he has dedicated his life to helping others. In addition to his work with Christian Soldiers Karate, Master Cashion has worked with his local Boys and Girls Club, Big Brothers & Big Sisters, the Speedway Charities and other organizations. He has been honored by Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton with the Presidential Sport Award and by then-State Senator Mike Moncrief with the Texas Martial Arts Award. Most recently he was named a Hometown Hero in Fort Worth, Texas, for his commitment to the community.

“I am honored beyond belief to receive the Bushido Award from the Masters Hall of Fame along with such icons of the martial arts as Don Wilson and Cynthia Rothrock,” said Cashion of his induction. “I truly do not feel I am worthy of such recognition, and I thank God for all of the blessing in my life.”
