Martial Arts, Community, Leadership!

At Studio Naga, we’ve created a community which supports change and growth in a diverse, supportive environment – come join us! Operating since 2000, we are easy to find at the border of Oakland, Berkeley and Emeryville.

Our Indonesian art, Poekoelan Tjimindie Tulen, encompasses ground fighting, self-defense, forms, animal movement, meditation, weapons, and free sparring. Training offers benefits in physical fitness, self-defense, confidence, flexibility, mental focus, and self-expression – and it’s fun!  We’ve been featured on MSN, NPR and in numerous publications and are known for stressing leadership development and peer support.

Studio Naga is headed by Louise Rafkin, who has been training since 1984, assisted by nearly two dozen black belts. Teaching, and learning to be an effective teacher, is an intrinsic part of the training tradition.
