Due to the success of past 5K's, to date, KIAI has awarded over $100,000 in financial assistance to deserving students of qualifying families. Many scholarship students have gone on to achieve the rank of Black Belt or higher, stating that if it hadn’t been for the KIAI financial support they received, they would not have gained the confidence, self-awareness, and ability to persevere through challenges they learned through the teachings of karate.
