Martial Arts Education Fund, Inc., established in 1993, operates exclusively for public health,
safety, educational, sport, and charitable purposes for amateur martial artists. Kansas City area residents Bob and Travis Boggs direct the organization. Both were listed in the Top 150 Athletes in their home town's sesquicentennial celebration in 2008 (Olathe's 150th year anniversary) as well as Bob being listed in the Top 150 Influential and Noteworthy People in the city’s history. For over 200 years, the Boggs Family has been making a positive difference in the lives of America's Youth.
The Martial Arts Education Fund has a long history of working with the world's leading competition organizations on the international stage. Whether it be for
Ju-Jitsu, Karate-Do, Judo, Kickboxing, or Wrestling, we can help provide travel scholarships to help young athletes reach the ultimate dream of representing their home country.
The Traditional Martial Arts have been shown to develop the entire person - physically, mentally, & ethically. Martial Arts can teach the virtues of humility, courage, integrity, and respect - qualities that build a strong and honorable character in people so that they may contribute to creating a more peaceful and gentler world.
The Martial Arts Education Fund promotes the combination of athletic and academic excellence. Many founders of the Traditional Martial Arts were also great educators. For example, Dr. Jigoro Kano, the founder of Judo, served as a Professor, Principal, & Dean at various Universities and Institutions throughout his life. Dr. Kano stressed the importance of developing a strong mind in conjunction with the body. In the same tradition, the Martial Arts Education Fund provides scholarships for young martial artists who pursue college education while continuing their training.
People like Mr. Boggs have much more impact upon the lives of
ordinary citizens than do the major sports. I truly believe that every
person fortunate enough to be influenced by Bob is one less person
with whom I will have contact.

I need not go into all the awards and kudos heaped on Mr. Boggs,
his reputation as a skilled teacher and as a community leader need no amplification. The Boggs family is not just members of the community;
they are among the very few citizens who lead by example.

We needed personnel with positive attitudes and outstanding leadership abilities...that is where Boggs stood out. More important to the organizers than Boggs' karate skills, were his contributions as a leader...This exemplary administrator is a credit to his entire community.
