Self Defense Training : WELCOME TO THE KOBUKAN!


The Kobukan will train you to become proficient in the Okinawan Marital Arts of Matsumura Shorin Ryu Karate and Hakutsuru White Crane. In addition, we will also enable you to successfully defend yourself against street crime, assault, or random violence; replacing fear with confidence.

Attending martial arts classes is always beneficial, however most adults do not have the time in their busy schedules to routinely train in a dojo. At the Kobukan, we give you the ability to train in both self defense and traditional martial arts with directed home study to fit your schedule and meet your training goals.

We specialize in delivering high quality HOME STUDY PROGRAMS and ONLINE COURSES in Shorin Ryu Karate, Hakutsuru White Crane, and Practical Self Defense for the Modern World.

Feel free to explore our site and do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email to discuss how you can benefit from any of the wide variety of courses we have to offer.
