Not Your Average Martial Arts Studio

We were excited to learn all about Ohana Martial Arts Academy and how they have gotten where they are today, so we sat down with Neil, who co-owns the studio with his wife.

The first thing we wanted to know was what it is that makes Ohana Martial Arts Academy stand apart from its competitors. We learned that Ohana is all about community, and they focus their learning environment on the importance of family and developing life skills. As a part of their commitment to family and community, they welcome students of all ages and skill levels.

Neil shared:

“Ohana means family, and it’s a little tribute to our Hawaiian lineage. We teach a high-quality self-defense program, and we combine that with character building. We teach kids integrity, honesty, and work ethic. The lessons they learn here will last throughout their lives.”

Building Success, Online And Off

In addition to building the kind of online reputation that any small business would envy, Ohana Martial Arts Academy has spread the word about who they are and what they do online, where they have an excellent website, positive reviews, and a presence on social media, and offline, where they work with local schools.

There are many businesses out there that are looking to build as impressive a reputation as Ohana Martial Arts Academy has managed to. We asked if Neil could share any expert advice with these companies. Here’s what he had to say:

“Work! Spread yourself out online, and not just on one platform. Use a few social platforms, and keep the conversation going online. This will require weekly maintenance online.”


Congratulations to Ohana Martial Arts Academy for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and special thanks to Neil for taking the time to speak with us!
