The Martial Arts History Museum, the first museum in the world featuring all aspects of Asian martial arts and Asian culture, is pleased to announce its relocation from Santa Clarita, CA to the city of Burbank. The main purpose of the Martial Arts History Museum is to provide educational information to children and visitors about the cultural, historical and artistry of Asian forms of martial arts. Founded in 1999, the Museum is set to open its doors in April, 2011. 'We are proud to join the city of Burbank which is synonymous throughout the world for entertainment,' said Museum founder and President Michael Matsuda.
Located in the heart of the city near Magnolia and Buena Vista, the Martial Arts Museum brings with it a huge customer and fan following. The Martial Arts History Museum, a non-profit organization, is filled with over 500 artifacts including iconic outfits, tournament costumes, movie wardrobe and historical photographs. The path through the Museum is set up as a timeline revealing how the martial arts first began, which Asian countries played a role in its development, the traditions behind the art and how it took its first step on Western soil. 'Our mission is honor Asian history and its roots in American history,' said Matsuda. 'For example, Asian kung fu and karate have had positive influences on movies, television shows and animation.'
The world renowned Museum features an evolving venue of artifacts and collections of Asian martial arts, which enables visitors and members to experience new exhibits on a continual and rotating basis. In addition, one of the popular offerings of the Martial Arts History Museum is the plethora of seminars and events featuring all aspects of Asian heritage and culture.

'We are also planning a host of 'meet and greet events' of MMA stars, martial arts celebrities, ask the action actor series and more,' said Matsuda. 'There are many stars that have utilized martial arts in their career in various hit movies and have been very supportive to the Museum.' The Martial Arts Museum events are so unique and informative that they have drawn visitors from San Diego to San Luis Obispo.
'Our first event for our new Burbank location is a seminar sampler in which the public will be provided free entrance into the facility and get a 15-minute taste of the seminars yet to come,' concludes Matsuda.
