The first known karate demonstrations in the US were held in the Hawaiian territory in the 1930's. It was after World War 2 that American GI's brought the art back to the mainland. Karate came to the US about the same time as it came to Japan, in the early 1930's. Hawaii was the first place in the US that 'Gijin' saw what is known as karate demonstrations. It became much more popular as Soldiers that had become interested in it while stationed on Okinawa and in Japan learned it and brought it back.
Judo was here in earlier. The first recorded karate classes in the US where held in Hawaii in the 1930's.

ABSOLUTELY!! It doesnt matter how old you are to join karate and earn belts. There was a woman in my karate class and she was 72 years old.....Karate is for anyone who is willing to learn disipline and respect!
Karate could be found in the US as early as 1932, when it was demonstrated in Hawaii. It was pretty much found being taught to other Okinawan immigrants. It really came to popularity after World War 2 when GIs started bringing it back from Asia.
