About TKA

TKA Welcome Information          TKA Bienvenida Información En Español

Tompkins Karate Association (TKA) works through the county recreation departments in Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George's counties in Maryland to provide traditional karate and jujitsu instruction at reasonable prices to students of all ages and skill levels. 

Students in TKA have been realizing the benefits of our martial arts instruction since 1965. Currently, TKA has thousands of students learning at over 30 locations around the Washington area. Students learn respect, self-discipline, and self-confidence as well as physical fitness, coordination, and self-defense. 

Students are promoted based on their mastery and demonstration of karate and jujitsu techniques. Students earn a colored belt that shows the level of proficiency that they have obtained. Belt ranks start at white and range through orange, yellow, red, green, purple, blue, brown, and black.
