Okinawan Boxing was officially recognised as an official style in 2010 by The World United Martial Arts Federation (W.U.M.A )

Aaron Naisbet stopped boxing competitively and started developing his own style using his own martial arts background and experience to train people fighting in MMA and K1 matches.

The style couldn’t be called Karate as practitioners would not train in a Gi or use kata or throw hooks and ipper cuts. It could not be Kickboxing as the style uses low kicks and knees and elbows.  It was named “Okinawan Boxing” for a few reasons: paying homage to Okinawa, where Karate originated from, which helped him develop his style. Boxing – some techniques in the style and western boxing itself influenced the way he was trained and taught throughout his career.

Okinawan Boxing is a fusion of Shotokan Karate, Goju-Rye Karate and Western Boxing. It has no Katas and is quite informal with no bowing, however there is a belt system. but there is no grading as such. Progression is based on constant evaluation, monitoring of the students and their dedication to training.

It is a full contact style, which applies different techniques from its parent arts.

The style is perfect for MMA competition and K1 competitions as well as for self-defence.
