Welcome to Master Teruyuki Higa's Okinawa Kenpo Karate School Home Page.  This website is dedicated to the memory of my teacher, Master Shigeru Nakamura and honoring him by preserving the art of karate-do he taught.

 "No Fighting, No Karate." - Master Nakamura, Shigeru

 "The Ultimate Goal in Karate is to Defeat Opponents in Real Life or Death Situations." - Master Higa, Teruyuki

Okinawa Kenpo Karate is not a sport.  It is a way of life. We teach students how to truly defend themselves using both empty hands and weapons with proven techniques that will work in real life against violent armed and unarmed assailants.

That is why Master Higa was honorably summoned by Major General Jones of the  United States Marines, to evaluate and refine their hand to hand and combat techniques.

Sensei Higa's Okinawa Kenpo Karate School is located in Uniondale - the heart of Nassau County, Long Island - NY.   The Dojo is just minutes away from Hicksville, Westbury, Levittown, Wantagh and Uniondale.  It is located on Front St., just off of Hempstead Turnpike, near Nassau Coliseum.  Easily accessible from the Meadowbrook parkway.

Sensei Teruyuki Higa was trained in the art of Okinawa Kenpo Karate-Do directly by the system's founder, Shigeru Nakamura. Master Nakamura was known throughout Japan as one of Okinawa's all time greatest Karate-ka.  Young Teruyuki Higa, a native Okinawan, started his training under Master Nakamura as a young boy.  He trained diligently under Nakamura-Sensei for years to eventually become one of his senior and most respected students.

While in Okinawa, Master Higa, was the youngest to be certified to teach Karate-Do.  There, he opened a successful dojo and trained my government officials.  He later relocated to the United States of America, where he opened his first US Dojo on Long Island, NY.

Master Higa still teaches traditional Okinawa Kenpo Karate-Do in its pure form, as taught to him my Master Nakamura.  He still trains his students in many of the techniques forgotten or omitted from other martial arts school's watered down curriculum.
