A brief history

In the 1970’s The Tiger Karate Club (as it was known then) was founded by Shihan Brian Alan Wiehahn in Cape Town South Africa. From it’s humble beginnings in a double garage, the club quickly grew and took up residence at the Community Arts Project in Mowbray Cape Town. From there it evolved into what is now known as The Tiger Academy of Martial Arts seeing more than 100 black belts and instructors around the globe, represented in countries like New Zealand, Australia, Great Britain, Kenya to name but a few.

Shortly after Shihan Wiehahn’s passing in 1996, Shihan Cobe Jephta (7th Degree Black Belt) was appointed as the the head of the academy, a position which he holds to date. Since then the organisation has grown into what is now the largest Kenpo Karate School on the continent of Africa. The Tiger Academy also hosts the annual Kenpo Karate Extravaganza which is the biggest Karate tournament of it’s kind with schools participating in numbers.

The Tiger Academy of Martial Arts is actively involved in the community facilitating certified self defense courses in schools and tactical training for security agencies, corporate businesses etc.
