The Sakubara Way

Sakubara Academy has a unique way of teaching martial arts. It’s called the Sakubara Way. We start with task simplification, not task deconstruction like most schools. You’ll learn basic standing and ground techniques that are right for you. We know every student is different, so we will adapt to your needs and abilities.

The Importance of Safety

Safety is our top priority at Sakubara Academy. In your first class, you’ll learn how to be safe with each new skill. Hector is always there, watching to make sure you’re comfortable and safe with each new skill. Remember, it’s okay to tap out—it’s part of learning.

The Sakubara Community

When you join Sakubara Academy, you join a community. One that values hard work, never giving up, and respect. These are our core values. If you’re a parent hoping to reinforce these values in your child, Sakubara Academy is the place to be. If you’re an adult looking for growth and development, you find that here too.
