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.
A MESSAGE from KMAA Director John McGraugh, Shihan
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.
