I realize this is a very old thread, but in the event anyone is still out there, I just wanted to update the information regarding the current status of the Karate America organization. The organization was founded in 1990 by Master Wayne McCabe, and Masters Duke LaCompte, Jack Skutnick and William Good were pretty much the highest ranks within the organization. Masters Raimondi and Donna Koopman were also participating school owners, but the majority had been McCabe/LaCompte/Good/Skutnick students of the ATA. Master McCabe had been a regional director for the ATA and both he and Master Good were national champions. Karate America had their own system of forms, up to 4th degree. The organization slowly disbanded in the mid-90s when most schools went off to follow Bryan Klein's Taekwondo America organization. To my knowledge, the only school that still uses that curriculum is Master Good's school that's still out in Morganville, NJ. He runs it with Master Lane King who is a 7th degree student of his. They still use all the Karate America forms and sparring.
