“You never know when that certain person you’re going to touch is going to be a world-changer some day. I constantly feel blessed for all of the opportunities that I have had in the martial arts.” American Karate Senior Master Jamie Cashion
A teacher of karate for nearly 30 years, Master Cashion has set a strong example in his life through both his martial arts success and his commitment to giving back to the community. He has worked with at-risk youth and underprivileged children in Texas and as far away as Africa. Master Cashion 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. In 2016 Master Cashion had the privilege of being the keynote speaker at the Joshua High School Teachers Convocation, honoring the dedicated staff of his Alma Mater.
Master Cashion has received recognition from other prestigious martial arts organizations, including the Masters Hall of Fame and the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame. He has been honored in the Legends of Martial Arts Hall of Fame by Cynthia Rothrock and the California Martial Arts Museum Wall of Honor by Art Camacho. Official Karate Magazine presented him with the Golden Shuto Award and he received the WHO’S WHO in the Martial Arts Black Belt Achievement Award from the American Martial Arts Alliance (AMAA).
The AMA Hall of Honor ceremonies were part of a three-day celebration of Martial Arts, MMA and Health & Fitness. In addition to the awards ceremony, the weekend included a trade show and expo, 60 free seminars, martial arts tournaments and MMA fights, and the Action Martial Arts Kids Choice Awards. Proceeds from the event go in part to help support the AMA’s charity partner, Kickin’ It, a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated educating and supporting children as they grow in order to end bullying.
“No matter what obstacle is put in your life, you can overcome it,” says Master Cashion, who survived a near-fatal fire while working as a volunteer firefighter at age 16. “You never know when that certain person you’re going to touch is going to be a world-changer some day. I constantly feel blessed for all of the opportunities that I have had in the martial arts.”
