On August 31st, 1996 a local Martial Arts school, which has now closed it's doors, was awarded the number one ranked competitive school in the Professional Karate Commission and the American Mid-West Karate Association. Master Steven M. Franz, a then world champion accepted the honor on behalf of all the Hicksville residents. This event launched Hicksville, Ohio into the Martial Arts world with a bullet. For the next two years the Bushido-Kan Karate Academy was rated in the best of the nations schools, never falling out of the top ten.
