About Maine Isshinryu Karate Academies

Founded in 1984 by father and son, Richard L Pushard Sr. and Rob Pushard, this family run dojo has been teaching Martial Arts to members of the surrounding communities for over three decades. Pushard's Okinawan Karate started as a small 16 student club. Now known as M.I.K.A.

With over 750 active members, and 65 active Blackbelts, this family orientated dojo is one of the best around.  We have direct ties to Okinawa and to Master Kichiro Shimabuku, the son of Master Tatsuo Shimabuku, the founder of Isshinryu Karate.

Combining old traditions with modern day education, we have successfully been able to help change the lives of literally thousands of people.

Rob and Rebecca Pushard both train and teach full-time, this is not a part time hobby it is a full time life style for this husband and wife team. With a training regiment including MIKA FIT, MAT MAX,  Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Isshinryu Karate, this martial arts duo does it all.

Our philosophy is simple, to better our Mind, Body, and Spirit through Martial Arts Training. We teach life skills to our students that will help them succeed in anything they pursue in life.
