About Us

   The TKA was formed in 1983.  It's chief instructor, Chuck Kerrigan, began his training in 1965 and currently holds a nana-dan (7th degree black belt).

 

Our primary program is teaching karate as it was meant to be taught -- as an exercise and self-defense.

 

   From the beginning students' first class, they are immersed in new and exciting methods of self-protection.  Students are taught skills of body language, subconscious danger signals, and anticipating dangerous situations. As well as traditional Shotokan basics, kata, & sparring.  The Japanese language, culture, & etiquette are also part of our classes.
