New Jersey has always been on the forefront of combat sports, and some of the biggest bouts in MMA, kickboxing and Muay Thai history have taken place at various venues around the state.

New Jersey has had a Boxing Hall of Fame since the 1960′s and, in a similar sense, they hope to recognize and honor those involved in combat martial arts such as MMA and Muay Thai. New Jersey is building a rich tradition in non-boxing martial arts.

The goal is to honor those involved with New Jersey martial arts and to celebrate with them, at an evening with family and friends. The focus is on those directly involved in New Jersey martial arts.

“This truly is a historical moment in our State’s combat sports history. Our intent is to have the New Jersey State Martial Arts Hall of Fame continue for many years and serve as a record for those outstanding individuals involved in martial arts in our State.

We hope you will join us on December 5, 2014. Mark your calendars now and purchase your tickets early, so you can be sure to be a part of New Jersey martial arts history. Call 201-538-4843 or visit http://njsmartialartshof.com/ to get your ticket and join us in a historic night for New Jersey and for martial arts. It is certain to be a terrific night with friends, fun, and music.”
