Shurite Kempo Technique Association

The Shurite Kempo Technique Association (SKTA) is a group of martial artists interested in "old style" kata and bunkai training. The Chief instructor is Master Gary Music of Mansfield, Ohio. Master Molinaro is one the founding members of the Shurite Kempo Technique Association, and is currently the New York State Director.

To learn more about the SKTA and its instructors, please visit:

Master Molinaro trained for almost twenty years with the late Master Stan Hart. Master Hart was an eighth degree veteran martial artist. As an accomplished Shotokan practitioner, Master Hart trained for several years with "Taika" Seiyu Oyata from Okinawa in self defense techniques with roots in the fifteenth century Shuri village of Okinawa. Following this, Master Hart continued to develop and teach a method of training and self defense that was extremely effective at close range.

It is the mission and vision of both Master Music and Master Molinaro to continue the work of the late Master Hart. The students of Tang Soo Do of Central New York are exposed to these techniques throughout their training, and are encouraged to become more proficient with experience. SKTA certification is available to our Black Belts!
