About Us

KFMA began offering classes in Kingstowne in June, 2001.
Motobu Ha Shitoryu

The foundation of our program is Motobu Ha Shitoryu.  We operate under the auspices of the Kunba Kai USA. 

We serve members of all ages & experience levels.
Culture Counts

In our community there are a plethora of choices when it comes to martial arts training.  The culture of a club has a profound effect on both young and old students.  Strength and toughness are important to many combative sports, however the atmosphere at clubs that over-emphasize these attributes can have a negative life-influence.  The culture of KFMA classes is one of hard work and mutual respect. 


Our goal is to educate our students so they can reach their fullest potential.

Supplemental Arts
We have been involved with the Shurite Bujutsu Kai since the beginning.  KFMA students learn aspects of Shuri-te Jujutsu during their regular training.  We currently offer regular training in the Chinese internal arts of Bagua Zhang & Xing Yi Quan (also in conjunction with the SBK) on Tuesdays at 7:00.
Shihan Oviatt is currently working on specific kobudo programming.  Stay tuned!
