"A Black Belt is not the end of the journey. It's only the beginning!" - Martin Petrovich
Maine Kyokushin Karate (MKK) has been the Oxford Hill’s premier martial arts school for 18 years. We teach traditional Kyokushin karate and our Black Belts are respected worldwide.
At MKK we pride ourselves on our strong Kyokushin background and on continuing the Kyokushin legacy.
Not everyone has what it takes to be a Kyokushin Karate Black Belt. If becoming a Kyokushin Black Belt was easy, everyone would do it. And it’s not about being the toughest or the strongest. It’s about having the dedication and focus to earn something respected worldwide.
Do you have what it takes?
We are proud members of Kyokushin-Kan International. Our Black Belts train worldwide and are able to bring you the best karate program possible.
Our expert instructors will challenge you, help you get in shape, and allow you to reach goals you never though possible!
The best way to see if we are the right karate school for you is to try a class. Give us a call at 207-890-6724 or contact us here for more information.

MKK belongs to Kyokushin-Kan International, led by Hatsuo Royama of Japan. We feel it is imperative that martial arts schools belong to a credible organization and we have been proud members of the Kyokushin community for almost 20 years.
We do not believe in self-promotions or unearned titles. Belonging to Kyokushin-Kan International gives our black belts credibility and value. Earning a Kyokushin-Kan Black Belt is much more than a belt and certificate. It’s a lifelong membership in a strong, international organization of dedicated martial artists.
