About Us

Tokyo Joe’s Studios of Self Defense in Hooksett, NH began as a Kempo Karate School in 2000, owned and operated by Edward Carr. Since then we have grown into a premier Martial Arts School in New England, offering programs in multiple disciplines, including Karate, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, and Mixed Martial Arts. Our kids, teens, and adult Karate program has a lineage rooted in Shaolin Kempo Karate and is operated under the Tokyo Joe’s System of Self Defense. Our MMA program began under the guidance of UFC Hall of Fame legend Pat Miletich, operating under the Miletich Fighting Systems banner. Since 2011, our BJJ and MMA program is now proud to be a part of the New England powerhouse, Team Link, owned by 3rd Degree BJJ Black Belt Marco Alvan.
