"The Ultimate Goal in
Karate is to Defeat Opponents in Real Life or Death Situations."

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
States Marines, to evaluate and refine their hand to hand and
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.
