AKANA is committed to providing martial art schools and Karateka across the United States with an organization that secures their martial arts lineage with the pioneer of American Karate, Hanshi Jerry Piddington, founder of the first American Style of Karate, called American Open Style, under the USKA sanctified charter established by O'Sensei Robert Trias, Father of American Karate. Our goal is to provide martial art schools and individuals of any style with an opportunity to become affiliated with a martial arts organization that provides access to promotions, teaching credentials, honored titles, and proclamation of styles endorsed and signed by Grandmaster Jerry C. Piddington.
ABOUT OUR MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL
Hi Yah! Tae Kwon Do values respect, self control, and never giving up. We are a place where kids, teens and adults can learn self defense, weapons, and other integral parts of martial arts.
Students will gain confidence and learn discipline as they rise from novice to expert black belt. Hi Yah! has developed a system called 'Ren Waza Do' (The way of combining techniques), which doesn't only teach traditional Tae Kwon Do, but incorporates parts of Karate and Kenpo.
