            It is no mistake that the letters M.M.A. equate to the name Miori Martial Arts.  Our unique method of instruction has always incorporated the best principles and techniques from the most prominent martial arts styles and "mixed" them to become the most versatile, well rounded system there is:  Shaolin Kempo Karate.  Our style combines the finest movements of:  Shaolin Kung-fu, traditional Japanese Karate, Japanese Jiu-jitsu, Judo, Aikido, and Boxing.

We pride ourselves on our attention to detail which you will notice from the moment you are greeted when entering any of our 3 convenient locations.  Our certified Black Belt Instructors are always kind, courteous, and helpful.  Their training is continuously being updated and advanced by Master Instructors who also oversee the class structure and curriculum.
