This is the official site of Lima Lama Original No Ka Oi. Co-founded by Grand Master Richard Nunez in 1965, our style of martial arts has its roots in many different styles.
Students are taught respect, self-discipline, dedication, and our unique blend of self-defense skills. These include kicking, punching, striking, as well as take-downs, weapons, kick-boxing, and many other specialized techniques. Our goal is to teach our students a practical and very useful set of skills that are not just for show, but for true self-defense.
Take a look through our site, and as you become acquainted with Lima Lama, you will soon know why we call our style “No Ka Oi”, which means “The Best” in Hawaiian! If at any time you have questions, or would like more information, or would simply like to visit a class, please feel free to contact us!
