United Karate is a traditional multi-martial art system. It was founded by Ben Kiker in 1973. It consist of Korean and Okinawan karate, kickboxing, and Jiu-Jitsu (art of grappling). Students of all ages in our program will be taught this system and more. It is not cagefighting as in modern day mixed martial art (MMA). United Karate has a strong competitive dimension to it, yet competition is not the focus.
