Kadan Martial Arts
The video gives a good overview of our Blended Martial Arts Program.
Created and Produced by Mr. Tom Sugihara (who is also father to two Kadan
Black Belts) on behalf of the Kadan Black Belt Class of 2008 to thank our
teachers, fellow students, and families.
It's a family affair. Roland, Aurora, Kadante and
Roland Jr., the driving forces behind
Kadan Martial Arts.
Kadan Martial Arts was established in 1992 by Roland and Aurora Ferrer. Kadan was originally known for its top level Taekwondo Athletes, ranking in Jr. & Sr. divisions in State, National, U.S. Team Trials and International Competitions. In time, raising their two sons at the studio, gave way to diversifying their programs. They became inspired to help people of all ages and physical abilities enjoy the benefits of the Martial Arts. Kadan became known as a "family school" a place where children from four years old to adults could train and grow together. We strive to make our environment a nurturing and positive place for everyday people to face their fears, overcome their challenges and walk the road to Black Belt.
