- Okinawan Goju-ryu Karate (“hard-soft style”) is as traditional form of karatedo that features a combination of hard, striking attacks and soft, circular techniques for blocking and controlling the opponent. Practice methods include kata (forms), body strengthening and conditioning, kakite (sticking hands), and partner drills with particular emphasis on correct breathing and refinement of technique. TMAI students continue the lineage learned directly from Hanshi Shinjo Masanobu, founder of the Shobukan Goju-Ryu Karate Dojo.
- Okinawan Kobudo, or Ryukyu Kobujutsu, (literally “old martial way”) refers to the comprehensive study of the classical weapons traditions of Okinawa, Japan, including the Bo (six-foot staff), Sai (metal truncheon), Tonfa (handled club), Nunchuaku (flail), Jo (short staff), Eku (boat oar), Jutte-Bo (spear), Kama (sickle), Sansetsukun (3-section staff), and Tinbe-Rochin (shield and spear). TMAI students learn the kobudo lineages from Hanshi Kanei Katsuyoshi (Jinbukan) and Ufuchiku-Den Kobujutsu from Hanshi Kina Masanobu (Rengeikan) and Soke Isa Kaisyu (Shudokan).
- White Crane Gate – Feeding Crane Boxing system (Bai He Men Shi He Quan) from Taiwan has been passed down unchanged in the Liu family. This system contains a complete and traditional curriculum, including power development (kung li), forms, application, chi’ gong, body conditioning, as well as herbal medicine and other traditional practices. The authentic Feeding Crane Kung Fu applications are a key to unlock the many secrets within traditional forms and techniques that have been lost in time.
- Muso Jikiden Eishin-ryu Iaido (Iaijutsu) is a Japanese martial art of swordsmanship. The art emphasizes drawing and cutting with the samurai sword in a single fluid motion and with extreme precision. Shindo Muso-Ryu Jodo (Jojutsu) is Japanese traditional martial art originally founded 400 years ago for defense against the samurai sword. Using a 4 foot wooden stick, the Jo becomes a tremendous weapon using an amazing range of flowing and effective thrusting, sweeping, and striking techniques. Throughout the movements, the practitioner maintains a spirit of intense focus and internal calmness.
- TMAI’s Adapted Therapeutic programs provide comprehensive and motivational training for students with a variety of special needs.
