The Isshinryu Karate Academy (IKA) located in Washington, NJ, is the town’s oldest, continuously operating martial arts school. Founded in 1980 by Sensei Ben Lapinski, the IKA teaches a traditional type of Okinawan karate. The IKA instructs children from as young as 5, to adults of all ages. Classes are organized by age and are taught by experienced, senior black belts. Instruction is given is a disciplined but accessible environment with attention to traditional customs and techniques. Outside of training the IKA is a friendly, family-oriented community of students, teachers and friends. To learn more about us and what we do explore our site, and when you're ready give us a call or visit our school!

Your donation to our Patreon will allow us to keep this traditional dojo running and create unique content that includes; videos and articles that that explore martial arts techniques, newsletters discussing the latest research into topics related to health and martial arts, lessons about anatomy, physiology and their relation to training, videos about devastatingly effective techniques and the science behind them, and articles about aspects of the martial arts for people of all skill levels and ages. Your generous donations will also help me pay for the equipment and supplies for the videos, website hosting costs, other related costs, and if there’s anything left over will be put towards costs related to medical school.

Martial arts can offer something to people of all ages and ability. There’s the fast and physical aspects of combat (body), the focus and mindfulness of training (mind), and excitement of overcoming new challenges and exploring sources of inner strength  (spirit). It holistically trains the body, mind, and spirit – a goal that modern medicine is putting an ever greater emphasis upon.

That being said, this Patreon is NOT intended to replace one-on-one training in the martial arts and it is definitely not intended to give medical or therapeutic advice. For that we hope you swing on by to your local dojo, or visit us at 21 Star Plaza in Washington, NJ 07882. 

So, I hope you stick around and partner with us for this exciting journey!
