Welcome Traditional Martial Artists!

The TKA was founded in 1980 to preserve the "Traditional" values of Japanese/Okinawan martial arts that include respect, courtesy, kindness, truthfulness, compassion, and loyalty. These values help create and mold a persons character. Patience and control are stressed in practice. A true martial artists must develop these to insure the peaceful transition of knowledge.

We develop these values through endless practice of the Traditional techniques which include the practice of Kihon (basics), Kata (formal exercise), Bunkai Oyo (application), Kumite (sparring)
