Established in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1966, by founder and president, Chuzo Kotaka. Our programs are tailored to all age groups and all levels. We accept students as young as 5 years old to senior citizens and it does not require any experience. More than 90% of our new students have no karate experience at all but transition by just following the fundamentals. We have a fun and friendly environment that students will find challenging but rewarding. Our programs are built on individual character development through the teachings of traditional Japanese karate. We emphasize self-discipline, respect, humility, and commitment. These values help to promote a learning environment so that we can produce quality students and respectful individuals throughout our communities.
