Welcome to Kilohana USA!

Kilohana Martial Arts Association is a non-profit organization founded to perpetuate the teachings of Professor Kufferath, as well as to promote the study of other martial disciplines so as to provide the widest possible exposure to all aspects of martial arts for our members. Kilohana also encourages the discovery of the spiritual aspects of martial art and works diligently to foster a sense of community among other martial organizations and schools.

Kilohana sponsors and supports a number of tournaments and training events throughout the year. The diversity of these events represents the diversity of our membership and many are open to members and non-members alike.

The name “Kilohana” means being made of the finest material, of being the best at what you do, and having superior character, honor and integrity. Our coat of arms denotes this spirit with the Hawaiian words “Mokomoko Ku’i Lima Po’okela Kilohana”. Roughly translated this means being the finest champion in the art of hand-to-hand combat.
