Since 1958, the foundation of Kinney Karate training has been a "combination" of effective Martial Arts styles.
It has been only recently, that the term, "Mixed Martial Arts," or "MMA," has became a commercialized phrase connected to the Martial Arts. To be clear, We teach a "combination" of effective Martial Arts styles, and we do it for the love of what what we do, Our mission is to enrich the lives of our students. This is NOT Cage fighting, and NOT Full Contact Martial Arts. We teach EFFECTIVE skills with your safety in mind. Kinney Karate is practical, efficient, and our program works!
Why Kinney Karate? We are traditional in our values, and we are progressive in our training. We teach using contemporary educational methods that are effective. In our school, we teach refined techniques that stress control, quality, and skill. We focus on each students specific body type, ability, and expectations. We focus on your physical fitness from the perspective of learning Kinney Karate is more than a sport- it is an art form.
Kinney Karate is founded on the Korean martial art of Tang Soo Do. Our techniques also have a history of Okinawan, Japanese, and Chinese Martial Arts, using kinetically correct movements. We were one of the FIRST schools in America to teach Jiu-Jitsu, and Aikido to the already effective kicking, and punching of Karate. We were pioneers in early American tournament Karate, before it was commercialized. In 1980, Modern Arnis (Escrima) was added to the Kinney Karate system.
Our school has a unique and rich martial arts history and we hope you will take a look, and learn more about our school in our comprehensive website.
