East Valley Martial Arts karate students study the "fist-way" of the Okinawan people. Karate originated on the island of Okinawa (now part of Japan) when it was an independent country. This small territory of farmers and fishermen developed Karate (with influences from China) to protect their families, themselves, and their belongings. The techniques have been passed down from teacher to student for hundreds of years. They were gifted to us, and now we offer you the opportunity to become part of the tradition.

Members of the United Ryuku Kempo Aliiance travelled to Okinawa to visit the origin of traditional karate and were met in the airport by the national Japanese TV show 'Why did you come to Japan?'. They followed us around Okinawa for 2 days, and were very impressed with how we were honoring their culture. You can watch the video below, our segment starts at 32 min.
