Homestead AcademyThis weekend I visit Paukukalo in Maui to check the Homestead Academy.

Homestead is a nonprofit academy that teaches martial arts to kids that can’t afford to pay expensive academy dues.

They started two years ago with instructor Koa Kamaka teaching Jiu Jitsu, wrestling and boxing to the kids of the area.

Now there’s approximately twenty kids training three times a week and entering the tournaments in Maui and interisland to test their skills against athletes from others schools.

Showing much talent, they understand you don’t need an expensive academy to get good in martial arts…just
a strong team, a solid instructor and good working ethics to do the work.
