The Martial Arts Academy, Inc. School of Massage 738 hour Basic Course is the first and only State Licensing Board “Recognized” Massage Therapy Educational Program in the Okazaki Style of Restorative Massage Therapy in the United States. Until relatively recently (circa early 1990’s), instruction in this style was almost exclusively limited to martial arts practitioners of Dan Zan Ryu jujitsu, and all advanced instruction was reserved for senior ranked black belts. Currently there are one or two “weekend warrior” courses for the amateur practitioner available (some with as few as 150 hours of instruction), but this is the first program designed for the career professional practitioner or serious martial artist. Do not be fooled by others who promise “blue skies and kokua” as substitutes for our programs (totaling over 1800 hours of instruction) which teach the full Kodenkan – Dan Zan Ryu system and more while emphasizing traditional values and learning methods combined with 21st century accreditation and credibility.
