Kokondo – Martial Arts Style

Kokondo is a martial arts that combines techniques from Karate and Jujitsu. Kokondo is focused on the self-defense aspect of martial arts training (versus the sports aspect). Therefore, it discourages participation in tournaments.

Kokondo was founded by Paul Arel. He also founded the International Kokondo Association (IKA) in 1970. Most Kokondo schools are located in the United States.
