About

Hurricane Martial Arts Center was founded by Kevin “Hurricane” Hudson. January, 1992, the vision began. With his brother and one other student, Hurricane MA Center began to grow.

Kyoshi Kevin “Hurricane” Hudson began training in martial arts at the age of eight. At 13 he decided he wanted to be a world champion kickboxer and dedicated his life to helping others become better through martial arts training. Kyoshi began training for the ring early and began competing as a teenager.

In 1994, he won the K.I.C.K. World Cruiserweight Kickboxing championship with a 12 round victory over Neil Singleton. He continued to compete regularly, winning other titles under different organizations including the I.K.F. United States Heavy Weight title in 2002. During his travels and training he began working under Mr. Joe Lewis.

Mr. Lewis was the first karate and kickboxing champion ever in the U.S. Kyoshi has now earned his 5th, 6th, and 7th degree black belt under Mr. Lewis. After the passing of Mr. Lewis, the Superfoot System merged with the JLFS. Kyoshi testing under Bill “Superfoot” Wallace and earned his 1st Degree Black in 2014. In 2005, Hurricane Martial Arts Center opened a second location in Taylors. Then in 2006, Kyoshi and his brother Shannon “the Cannon” Hudson opened a 3rd location in Greenville.

Today Kyoshi spends his time at the original Lyman academy overseeing classes and daily activities. He trains and consults the teachers of the other academies. Kyoshi sees his mission as not just teaching punching and kicking, but a way to improve one’s quality of life through martial arts training.

    

After School Programs

Our Transported Afterschool Martial Arts Program is a great alternative to day care or baby sitting. We transport the children from their schools and deliver them safely to our dojo (school). At the dojo the children will eat a snack, have homework time, play a little, and each student will have their martial arts class at least two days per week.

The children will not only get exercise during the martial arts class, they will learn discipline, manners and respect for teachers, parents, friends, and themselves. They will learn self-esteem by earning belt ranks. This helps them feel self-confident and develops a “Yes, I can!” attitude that will carry over into school, home and sports. In the martial arts, we call this “BLACK BELT EXCELLENCE!”

You will find our fees extremely affordable when compared to other after school programs. We are not a day care, because we offer so much more! We teach structure, discipline, martial arts, and FUN! Call today to find out if we service your school!
