A Chat with HAWAIIAN MARTIAL ARTS LLC
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Authentic old-school training methods. We have 46 years of experience and emphasize physical fitness and traditional Kajukenbo training. We reinforce family values and operate the school like a club. Our adult black belts are certified by KSDI, AKA and KOA. You cannot buy a black belt in this school.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
All students must be respectful and courteous. Our instructors encourage proper behavior. Everyone in our school is Ohana (family). Just like at home, individuals make up the family. New students may not feel like veterans, but they will feel like the people in this school that cares about their well-being
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have been doing practicing for 46 years and have had schools in three states. I taught at Air Force bases, colleges and universities. Martial-arts training is part of me.
What do you love most about your job?
My profession is not related to martial arts. I practice and teach martial arts because I love martial-arts training. What I love most is probably the never-ending challenges!
