TAMA MARTIAL ARTS CENTER
TAMA is an acronym for Taningco Academy of Martial Arts also known as TAMA Martial Arts Center. It was established as a martial arts club in 1976. TAMA developed a high standard of martial arts excellence both for adults and especially youngsters, teaching children’s karate and kid’s karate lessons for the past 40 years in the greater Miami Valley area.
Grandmaster Taningco had envisioned his dreams to have a center that offers many different martial arts systems in one building. He created as a college setting where different curriculums were. With this in mind, he also pioneered the two programs that the Miami Valley area lacks, the children classes. Through his research, he found at that particular time in 1976, visiting many martial arts schools in the Dayton area, there were no martial arts classes strictly for kids. The children were mixed with the adults. Children under six years of age were not even to be seen on many of the martial arts schools he visited. They were divided into two curriculums for greater martial arts training results for the kids. Kids karate classes for ages 4-6 and Kids Karate classes for ages 7 to 13.
Taningco created 2 children martial arts programs that have been so successful in the Miami Valley area. They were divided into two curriculums for greater martial arts training results for the children. Kids karate classes for ages 4-6 and Kids Karate classes for ages 7 to 13.
With his two children growing up, Taningco was able to see even a greater results through the eyes of his children. Now, both of them have their children. Grandpa Taningco is now teaching his grandkids in the kid’s karate class.
The passion that Grandmaster Taningco puts into his teaching skills is phenomenal. With over 40 plus years experience in teaching children martial arts, you will find nothing like him who has the energy and positive enthusiasm in his kid’s karate classes with his innovative ideas and mixed with his Eastern culture.
