Mission Statement

Knight's Isshin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo teaches traditional Okinawan martial arts in the Kailua Community and promotes self-defense, physical fitness and family values in a fun, safe and positive environment.

Are you confident that your child has the skills to defend themselves? Are you confident in your own abilities?  If your answer is no, come see for yourself what Knight's Karate can do for you.  Many martial art schools use the generic karate buzz words of confidence, discipline, and respect to describe what one can gain in their program.  This may or may not be true.  What they don't explain is that they primarily train to perform in a sporting event at tournament. While much can be gained from the tournament experience, Knight's Karate's instruction will give you the confidence and skills necessary to face and overcome real-life situations. Come see  the difference that authenticity makes at Knight's Isshin-Ryu Karate.

What Makes Isshin-Ryu Karate and Kobudo Unique?

On January 15th 1956 Master Tatsuo Shimabuku, the founder of Isshin-Ryu Karate, officially named his style. He combined the Okinawan culture and its philosophies with techniques from traditional Okinawan karate styles such as Shorin-Ryu, Goju-Ryu and Kobudo (weapons). In doing so he created a unique style of karate that is an extremely efficient form of self-defense. It maximizes body mechanics to produce powerful and fluid techniques. These unique body mechanics are precisely why people of all ages and experience levels can easily learn and effectively use the style in real life self-defense situations.

Knight’s Isshin-Ryu Karate & Kobudo also offers other forms of martial arts such as Largo Mano Escrima, Sensei A.J. Advincula’s Karate-Do, Hindiandi Gung Fu, Knife fighting and various other Okinawan empty-hand and weapon katas.
