Aloha Ohana,


Big congratulations to our competition team who won a record amount of trophies at the Hawaiian Karate Championships on O’ahu last weekend! Individual placings will be posted soon. We had 9 students entered in Traditional Kata (Forms). Our kata group won three 1st places, four 2nd places, and one 3rd .In kumite (sparring), we entered 20 competitors winning thirteen 1st places, five 2nd places, one 3rd place, and one 5th place! Great job team! (Huge Congratulations to Kelema for taking home the Grand Championship by dominating the 2024 18 years and over Mens Open Black Belt Division!! We all are very proud of him!)


Striping will be held on June 19th, 20th, and 21st for blue stripes! Please do not miss striping days as they are points that count towards belt testing!

Belt Testing

Belt testing will be held June 22nd (Saturday)!! Students who qualify MUST have enough stripes, good attendance record, and be showing appropriate amounts of skill/effort and improvement in their belt level expectations.

We will be preparing students for belt testing in these next few weeks leading up to June 22nd. We will post belt testing times soon since we are in the process of evaluating each student for testing. Please be patient with us as we will notify students if they will be testing this month.  Hope everyone is enjoying their summer holidays! Please let us know if you will be away for vacation.


After careful consideration and analysis of various economic factors, including inflation rates, cost of shipping, and rising operational costs – we regret to inform our students and parents that there will be a slight increase in monthly dues (for both beginner and advanced classes), as well as a slight increase in our supplies (such as uniforms, shirts, and other equipment) effective July 1st. We will be preparing a separate formal letter with more detail regarding the fee increase and changes in our rules. We will be handing out letters to our students and parents very soon. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We thank you for your understanding.
