Half Day Seminar: “LUA: The Way of the Hawaiian Warrior”

  • Red Lion Inn & Suites (Dining Room) 1313 North Litchfield Road Goodyear, AZ, 85395 United States (map)


Direct from Honolulu, Hawaii, Kumu Lua Ramsay Taum will share the background, principles and application of the combat system of his warrior ancestors: LUA – The Way of the Hawaiian Warrior. Kumu Lua Ramsay is the Po’o (head instructor) and most senior member of the Kaihewalu ‘Ohana Lua system in Hawaii. With nearly fifty years of experience and training in numerous martial systems, Kumu Ramsay is a recognized cultural practitioner, lecturer, instructor and trainer. He is also the Lua stunt technical advisor for the CBS hit show Hawaii Five-0.

LUA is more than a combat system. Once thought lost to antiquity, the secretive Hawaiian martial art of Lua involves much more than just combative skills but is a practice that stimulates new ways of thinking, new ways of being, and new ways to “be present” in times of uncertainty. Come and meet Kumu Lua Ramsay as he discusses and demonstrates the principles, concepts and application of this unique cultural battle system.

All martial arts styles and systems welcome!
