         We are the offical educational branch of Grandmaster Taketo Nakamura's Okinawa Kenpo Karate and Kobudo Remmei and the Okinawa Kenpo Karate and Kobudo Association. It is our mission to promote traditional Nakamura Okinawa Kenpo Karate and Kobudo as it was developed and taught by our founder Grandmaster Shigeru Nakamura. We accomplish this mission by providing educational and instructional opportunities through traditional and non-traditional media. These consist of traditional karate classes, educational presentations, technical seminars, YouTube videos, and on-going traditional karate instruction through our video channel on the Patreon video streaming service. Our ultimate goal is to provide anyone who has a desire to learn traditional Okinawa Kenpo Karate and Kobudo (traditional weaponry) an opportunity to experience high quality martial arts instruction regardless of their physical locality or financial means.
