TO ALL KMAA MEMBERS AND FRIENDS:
Your safety, and that of your families and friends, is of utmost importance to us here at the KMAA. Due to recent concerns surrounding the coronavirus pandemic we find it necessary, out of an abundance of caution, to postpone classes for a short time. Starting MONDAY MARCH 16 ALL CLASSES at the Kodenkan Martial Arts Academy will be postponed. Classes will resume on FRIDAY MAY 1. All membership fees paid will be extended forward.
We have always followed a thorough cleaning regimen for our dojo and will continue to do so. While the dojo is closed, we will do an extra deep cleaning on all surfaces and dojo areas. When classes resume we will ask all members to be vigilant regarding hygiene recommendations for preventing the spread of the coronavirus including diligent hand washing and staying away from class if they or a close family member has exhibited symptoms. Disinfectant wipes will be placed in all dojo areas and instructors and members will wipe down all surfaces before and after classes. The mat areas will also be cleaned and disinfected with increased frequency. These precautions will help ensure a safe practice area for all.
Thank you all for your continued support and understanding during this unprecedented time. We look forward to resuming our normal schedule and continuing our martial arts training together.
Yours in the martial arts,
J. McGraugh, KMAA Director

A MESSAGE FROM KMAA DIRECTOR JOHN McGRAUGH, SHIHAN
Welcome to the Kodenkan Martial Arts Academy.
After 30 years of martial arts study I’ve come to appreciate the benefits that various martial arts have to offer. From flexibility, strength, and balance to fighting techniques, self-defense skills, or just plain having fun there are many good reasons to study the martial arts.
I’ve also realized that there is a vast difference between “martial arts” as we traditionally view them, and “fighting arts” that are basically sports, and “defensive tactics”, which would be techniques and training used in the most extreme of circumstances.
Here at the KMAA we have arts that offer all three of these approaches to martial arts study. We’d love to have you come by watch a class you’re interested in and see what we’re all about.
The Kodenkan Martial Arts Academy was founded in 1992. Our mission is to offer the Tucson community quality martial arts instruction. While our instructors may practice different styles, they are united in the belief that the practice of the martial arts improves the fitness, discipline and spirit of its participants. We are proud of our work, and of the students we have trained through the years.
Our goal is to perpetuate the teachings of Professor Seishiro H. Okazaki, founder of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu. His principles show us that the primary objective of studying martial arts is the perfection of character.
