“It is a blessing to be recognized for what I love to do, which is sharing the martial arts as well as helping others.” Senior Master Jamie Cashion
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. To this day, he continues to serve in the Somerville Fire Department. 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. His recognition with the Lifetime of Achievement Award is well deserved.
In addition to his honor by the Legends of the Martial Arts Hall of Fame, Master Cashion has been recognized by numerous other martial arts organizations. He is an Ambassador for the Masters Hall of Fame, a well-respected organization that recognizes excellence in the martial arts, and holds both Lifetime Legend and Bushido Awards. In 2013 Master Cashion was recognized by the Universal Martial Arts Hall of Fame, the U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame and the Martial Arts History Museum, where he was placed on the museum’s Wall of Honor. Among his other awards are Official Karate Magazine’s Golden Shuto Award (2013) and Action Martial Arts Magazine’s Hall of Honor. In 2016 he will be recognized by the All Pro Tae Kwon Do Hall of Fame in California.
Master Cashion has continued to devote his energy to expanding the recognition of the martial arts. In 2014 he organized the first ever Masters Hall of Fame Awards Ceremony outside of California. On June 7 more than 650 martial arts practitioners from around Texas and beyond gathered in Fort Worth for the event, the largest martial arts gathering ever in Texas. Country recording arts legend Eddy Raven sang “God Bless America” to open the ceremonies and Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price proclaimed that henceforth June 7 would be Martial Arts Day in the city.
“I am so very honored and grateful to be chosen for a Lifetime of Achievement Award by this wonderful organization,” said Master Cashion. “It is a blessing to be recognized for what I love to do, which is sharing the martial arts as well as helping others. God has been so good to me.”
The Legends of the Martial Arts Hall of Fame Awards will be hosted by martial arts film star Grand Master Cynthia Rothrock and Grand Master Eric P. Kovaleski. The ceremony is part of the Mega Martial Arts Weekend October 9-11 and includes the International Martial Arts Championships and Super Seminar Sunday.
