Train with the Masters!

Keepers of the Flame showcases the preservation of knowledge and traditions in the martial arts. For 2024 you will have the opportunity to see this in action as you train with the incredible teacher from the Hawaiian combat art of Lua, Kumu Michelle Manu and her team: Assistant Instructor Ikaika Kūkaniloko, Assistant Instructor Rachelle Cassetta, and Assistant Instructor-in-Training Brian Aguilar.

Kumu Michelle Manu

Michelle Manu is a 10th Black Belt and teacher (Kumu) of the rarely seen ancient Hawaiian Combat Art, Lua.

Michelle has earned a Juris Doctorate, business credentials from George Washington University, senior executive leadership credentials from Harvard Business School, and is a 2020 candidate for a double doctorate (MscD and PhD) in Metaphysical Science and Philosophy.

Michelle is an actress and fight choreographer, and a professional Polynesian dancer and teacher.

Michelle is known for her accomplishments as a 10th Black Belt and teacher (Kumu) of the rarely seen ancient Hawaiian Combat Art, Lua. She is the only woman accepted as a disciple and to earn the title of teacher (Kumu) under Grand Master (‘Olohe) Solomon Kaihewalu in over 40 years.

Michelle is also the only woman, thus far, to be given the designation of “Knight Commander” of the Royal Order of Kamehameha I for her continued work in promoting, protecting, and perpetuating the Hawaiian culture through the Lua. She was inducted into the 2016 Martial Arts History Museum’s Hall of Fame for altering the course of history of martial arts.
