About Us

Ohana is the Hawaiian word for family. It is in the spirit of ‘ohana that Libby & Tom Hill and their dedicated staff open Family Karate, the ‘Ohana Dojo, and invite all who share in that spirit to join us.

Family Karate is a community of martial artists of all skill levels striving to be stronger physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually through training in martial arts. We conduct our training in a supportive family atmosphere. We believe training in such a manner not only creates stronger individuals but stronger families, and ultimately creates a larger family of which we are all a part.

Random Acts of Kindness Day

February 14 2015

We should as good citizens always show kindness to others, but on Tuesday, February 17 we try especially hard to make this a way of life.  Ideas for this day:

  1. Make your bed without being reminded.
  2. Hold a door for someone else.
  3. Slow down to allow another car to go in front of you.
  4. invite someone to have lunch with you.
  5. Leave an extra generous tip for a waitperson.
  6. Bring an office mate a cup of coffee or tea.
  7. Call someone to just say, “Hi!”
  8. Shovel a neighbor’s walk.
  9. Give an employee the afternoon off (with pay).
  10. Pay for the person behind you in the drive through line.
