Over the years SPARK Worldwide has helped children from Texas and Mexico to Sierra Leone, Uganda and India.


“The Masters Hall of Fame is the most prestigious hall of fame I have ever attended,” says Grandmaster Burleson, “and the only hall of fame I know of that is a 501(c)(3) that gives back to charities.”

The association recognizes exceptional Martial Arts Leaders and Legends through induction into the Masters Hall of Fame.
