The Hoteikan System was founded to establish perfection of the Mind, Body and Spirit and dedicated to the combined arts. All techniques and principles were formed to create a more complete Martial Art, encompassing the components of all systems, thereby providing confidence and personal protection in the modern day inner cities. The Hoteikan System atmosphere enables students and instructors alike to develop personal commitment and creative freedom.
You as a student can independently study an individual art of your choice, but also have the opportunity to combine the styles to create a more complete martial arts system.
The martial arts we teach have developed and improved over hundreds of years, to help bring out your best and break through self imposed limitations.
