All of the Instructors at Okinawan Martial Arts are Black Belts that are highly skilled martial artists with many years of experience and an incredible compassion for teaching students.

All students receive a variety of personalities because each Instructor brings with them unique skills, experience and an approach to teaching that reaches everyone. We do not create students that are a copy of Sensei Ounkham or a copy of a particular style, system or organization. Everyone is cultured in a supportive atmosphere and encouraged to express themselves properly.

All of the Instructors at Okinawan Martial Arts are First Aid and CPR certified through the American Red Cross of Wisconsin. When working with children and teenagers, any Instructor that teaches the Junior and Youth programs is a parent themselves.
