This is a Life Protection Arts School that descended from the teachings of Taika Seiyu Oyata. He did not call his art a 'Martial Art' as he believed what he taught was not about war, but saving the lives of yourself, family and friends. The instructors/owners of the school trained with Taika for 24-34 years respectively, till the time of his death in 2012. We stay true to the teachings and philosophies of Taika Seiyu Oyata, continuing to carry the torch as he gave it to us.

Taika Seiyu Oyata received his initial training from two instructors; one Chinese, one Okinawan.  Thus, this is a hybrid.  Though it is commonly associated and linked to Karate, it has a much more fluid basis than most forms.

Pick a Path
  • Traditional Okinawan/Chinese Arts

  • Casual Self-Defense as Needed

  • Kobudo (Weapons) Path

At this school we believe you should pick your own path.  Do you want just basic self-defense?  Do you want to enhance your safety as a Police Officer?  Do you want to follow the traditional path of the ancestors and learn the full system, or just add some weapons training to the art you already study.  Pick your path.

The city of Kansas City, Missouri and State of Missouri have set various quarantine rules and regulations in place.  Regrettably, any art such as this is a face to face, hand to hand training situation in the school.  We are currently honoring that and school is closed until at least Wednesday April 1st. We do however have free videos for members on the video tab top right as well as a youtube and Facebook channel for others.  Please join us there for FREE online classes.

Women's Self-Defense

For over 30 years, our instructor's have been teaching Women's Self-Defense and other basic Life Protection seminars.  You can help set one up at your school, community center, church, et cetera.  Just contact us and we can make it happen.  If you just want to learn some basic Life Protection, contact us for one month of free lessons.

Casual Environment

Though this is a very traditional style in the techniques and philosophies taught which date back hundreds of years, it is also a casual learning environment.  There is no pressure to compete or test. There are no testing fees other than at black belt.

Age Requirements

This is an adult learning environment in that these techniques are serious and should not be taken lightly by children who's minds are not quite ready for the decisions that might need to be made during a life or death confrontation.  As such, we typically require students be at least 16 years of age.  

Younger students may, at the owners discretion, be admitted on a trial basis.
