About Tur-Ha Ak
Born in Northern Louisiana, Tur-Ha Ak began his martial arts training at the age of
seven. He studied Karate for eleven years in his home town of Monroe, developing the skills that would eventually become the foundation for the systems he would develop in adult life.

Martial arts helped Tur-Ha navigate the tough environment that consumed many of his friends while giving him the foundation for what would become a life-long passion. The combination of this passion, harsh conditions, and real world failures forced Tur-Ha to reexamine what was “real world effective” vs what was “dojo effective”. Forged by his experiences, countless hours of study and research of dozens of styles including, but not limited to Jujitsu, Boxing, Judo, and Filipino weapons fighting, Tur-Ha has created a comprehensive and effective street fighting system called A.R.M.E.D. Combatives & A.R.M.E.D. Traditional.

After over two decades of teaching in Oakland, Berkeley, and San Francisco; from
public schools, to his own 3,000 square foot martial arts school; Tur-Ha has assisted
hundreds of youth and adults get fit while learning the principles of self-defense.
Tur-Ha is not just about the arts and fitness, he focuses on the "Center Principle" of all things: the ability to discipline one's will. Through his unique processes, Tur-Ha Ak is able to help bring out the best in any individual willing to work better themselves and their community.
