The Southwest Academy of Kyokushinkai Karate is dedicated to the promotion, preservation and education of the martial arts and its traditions. We strive to be a reputable and respected dojo, dedicated to preserving the classical style of Kyokushin Karatedo founded by the Korean Master Masutatsu Oyama (1923-1994).

The Southwest Academy of Kyokushinkai Karate is affiliated with:-

The National Martial Arts Association (USA) an organisation with no stylistic boundaries. Their belief is that martial artists must come together to train hard and yet still have fun, while at the same time learning from each other.

The principles of the NMAA are based upon those set forth by the late Soke Richard P. Baillargeon, founder of the National Karate Jiu-Jitsu Union; that all ranks and titles must be earned the old-fashioned way, through sweat and hard work.

Some of the benefits of membership include:

  Self Defense Training
  Full Contact Sparring (with safety equip)
  Kata Training
  Kobudo Training
  Rank Certification
  Dojo/School Charters
  Branch Chief in your style
