What We Teach at Prepared Martial Arts

Prepared Martial Arts is a safe and professionally-minded school that teaches Okinawan karate and kobudo as well as women’s self-defense classes. We have a fun way of teaching our curriculum-focused content that preserves the art of the old warriors way of training from Ryukyu Islands (current day Okinawa) dating back prior to 1879. We call this RYUKODO.

The warrior class of the Ryukyu Kingdom in history trained first with weapons (kobudo) and when those tools were not in use they were automatically were skilled anyway (empty hand). Much of our life protection training is with the classical kobudo weapons: Bo, Tonfa, Nunchaku, Sai and Tanbo, to name a few. Defense training is then focused on its relationship to empty hand technique. This is perfect for teaching youth and adults how to defend themselves and it’s a fun and unique way to learn as well.

  1. I have been involved with many martial arts schools but Prepared Martial Arts dojo is the very best I have seen. I highly suggest this as a school for you, your family, or your friends. Sensei Jude Ferguson is the best teacher I have seen. I’ll be at their grand opening on Saturday, January 24, 2015.

  2. I lived Okinawa for many years and my Sensei was Master Shugoro Nakazato, Hanshi 10th Dan. Throughout my years in martial arts, I have met many now infamous practitioners of the martial arts, and after becoming aquatinted with Sensei Ferguson, I can say without a doubt that he is an extremely adept martial arts teacher and a person of very solid and good moral character. Sensei Ferguson is very strong and focused, yet gentle and kind. The true characters of a warrior.
