*KUPUNA, in the language of Hawai'i, are revered elders,

grandparents, and older community members


Our mission is to empower Hawaii's KUPUNA

with Aikido-based philosophies to

preserve and protect their mobile independence



- All KuA staff are volunteers and we depend on funding to provide a safe training environment while keeping the class tuition low enough for Kupuna to freely participate.  To help raise the needed funds, KuA is participating in “Give Aloha”, Foodland’s Annual Community Matching Gifts Program.  Your support will help ensure we can continue to provide our safe falling presentations to the general public, and we have the required COVID supplies and equipment necessary to conduct our safe falling classes.  If you can help, click here.


- Due to issues regarding COVID 19 and public health recommendations, all Safe Falling classes are postponed until further notice.

- If you are not on our mail list, you can get the latest news and info about upcoming classes by completing the sign-up form at the bottom of this web page.

- All KuA instructors have successfully completed the ‘COVID Safe Martial Arts Instructor Certification’ program.  This program was developed and is administered by the Martial Arts Industry Association.
