Kilindi Iyi started his Martial Arts career learning boxing from his father. Being an avid wrestler as a boy, Martial arts became an easy task.
During the mid 60’s he had the pleasure of seeing a Martial Arts demonstration at the Michigan Sate Fair. Fascinated by the efficiency of the techniques, he decided at that point and time that the fighting arts would be his lifelong vocation. Studying with the top masters of the day in the Detroit area, his vision of Martial Arts changed in the late sixties and early seventies from Oriental to African Martial Concepts. Studying with anyone from the African continent that knew anything about African fighting arts in the United States Kilindi traveled to Africa in the late seventies to intensify his studies of the African Fighting Sciences. It was during this time that the Ta-merrian Martial Arts Institute was developed and it has grown to be one of the most sought after Martial Arts Schools in the world. Kilindi continues to this day to be a student teacher and advocate of the ancient African Martial tradition.
