The AUTHENTIC MARTIAL DISCIPLINES OF CHINA, JAPAN AND OKINAWA

About Us

PUBLICATION INFORMATION

Over its 45 issue history, CFA magazine has evolved from a modest newsletter to an 84 page perfect bound, full color glossy publication. Written by the world’s leading scholars in the field, and moderated by the foremost classical martial art instructors, CFA magazine is widely regarded as the premier publication of its genre.

 

We publish technical and historical material that is authentic, interesting, and of considerable cultural value. All material is verified for accuracy, professionally edited, and reviewed repeatedly before publication. Frequently quoted as a source in serious research publications, Classical Fighting Arts magazine is the publication that all others are judged by.

 

Official acclaim was added to that of the public when in 2010 the government recognized Okinawa Ken Karate Do Rengokai awarded CFA magazine its prestigious, Award for Literary Excellence.

We Are Committed...

…to producing a magazine that is accurate, informative, and entertaining. A magazine that researches the history of the martial arts, records the present, and that is in many ways determining their future.

 

Our jointly organized and sponsored instructional programs with the Okinawa Ken Karate-Do Rengokai are widely recognized as innovative and highly effective cultural outreach programs that are held in the Okinawa Prefectural Budokan in Naha City, and the Okinawa City Budokan, Okinawa, Japan. These are unique “immersion courses,” featuring personal instruction over an extended period from the most senior karate masters in the world.

 

More than 100 international students from Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Ireland, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, the United States, and United Kingdom, have already graduated from this program and received certificates of completion issued by the Okinawa Prefectural Karate-Do Alliance (Rengokai). Originally held annually, to satisfy demand from the international karate community CFA/Rengokai Seminar events are now held every April and October.
