Building a better community through martial arts and self-defense training!
We are a non-profit Dojo located in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, providing fun, quality and affordable martial arts training. Our focus is on our students; helping them to build self-defense skills while also growing their character to make a positive difference in our community. Join us for keiki classes, EMPOWER classes for young women, self-defense training sessions, and our other fun community and fundraising events.
Our Students Gain:
1. Tremendous Confidence
Martial arts is challenging. But as students push them self and are cheered on by instructors and fellow students, they get a HUGE boost in confidence! Students also get in amazing shape and feel good about the strength they are gaining.
Students will be able to smile big and feel proud as they achieve things they once thought impossible. Even if that means completing one single push up, perfecting a difficult new technique, and progressing through the curriculum.
2. Laser-like Focus
Martial Arts is a ton of fun! You’ll learn all kinds of new skills and techniques like striking drills, defensive moves, and awesome ninja moves. But... when you learn something new, you have to concentrate on listening to the instructor, then perform what they taught you.
The cool thing is that this intense focus naturally pours into all other areas of your life as you develop spot on focus. It’s one of the most amazing side effects of martial arts — many call it getting in the zone, unlocking your hidden potential, or peak performance.
Whatever you want to call it, one thing is for sure — you’ll learn how to focus your mind to perform things you once thought were impossible.
3. Fun Fitness
Our classes are a blast and based on functional fitness. We use positive motivation and high fives - not military style yelling.
Our classes are full of fun and exciting exercises designed to enhance your self-defense skills. Dynamic strikes, high intensity intervals of cardio training, and physical movements that mimic how the human body should move are the focus.
Don’t worry if you feel like you won’t be able to keep up. We work with all levels from beginner to experiences martial artists – and everyone in between. And you know what...they all sweat the same at the end of the workout!
4. Connections and Friendships
Get ready because your family and friends are about to grow big time! We're an 'ohana here and both the students and instructors are all about support and friendship. Sometimes you’ll struggle through tough training, and smile at all your wins and accomplishments. Your martial arts 'ohana will be right there with you cheering you on too.
Friendship, encouragement, and high fives are part of every class here. As you train together, you and your classmates will form an amazing bond that will make you smile like never before.
5. You'll do awesome stuff!
No two workouts are ever the same. We use functional fitness focused on getting your body in shape. After all, if you can’t move your body in the real world or have enough endurance to get out of a bad situation then we’re not doing our job right.
You’ll learn how to move your body in fun new ways that will train your core, tone your arms and legs, and ensure that you stay as injury free as possible. Of course we do this with positive motivation. No military style yelling or body shaming, ever.
Kids and adults both work hard, but play harder.. Laughing, smiles, and high fives are part of every class.
