6th Level Black Belt & Head Instructor of EHAMA, Shihan Hari-Om RadhaKrishna started with “American Karate” (Tae Kwon Do incorporating Western boxing) in 1987 first in a YMCA program and then joining American Karate Studio in La Crosse, WI, attending classes for about 5 years, before moving out-of-town.

In September 1997, Hari-Om tested for 1st Dan (1st level black belt) in the UW-L Martial Arts Club’s eclectic style of Eskrima-Kali-Arnis, Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, and Muay Thai. After almost 3 years of teaching and training daily, in July 2000 Hari-Om tested for 2nd Dan under Shihan Greg Murphy. Hari-Om partnered with Mr. Murphy, starting a new club teaching Eskrima and Aikido as Blue Wave Martial Arts where he earned his 3rd Dan in 2004. Starting in 2007, Hari-Om began 5 years as Lead Class Instructor at Osthoff Resort’s Aspira destination spa. In January 2010, Hari-Om earned his title ‘Yoga Acharya’ in a Yoga Master Certification through Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashrams and Centres International.

From 2007 through 2013 he trained with 9th Dan Doce Pares Eskrima-Kali-Arnis Grand Master Tom Sipin & Master Kelii Sipin. In 2013 Hari-Om & Nina RadhaKrishna moved to Ashland, OR, & began training with 10th Dan Grand Master Jerry Piddington, the founder of AKANA (American Karate Academies National Association).

In July 2015, Hari-Om tested for 4th Dan in “Eclectic Holistic Asian Martial Arts” under Hanshi Piddington , and opened the AKANA Charter School, Eclectic Holistic Asian Martial Arts or EHAMA. Hari-Om's most recent accomplishment was being awarded the the rank 5th Dan, on July 2017, and the title "Renshi" which translates as "polished expert" or master instructor.

*One practices in holistic martial arts to heighten their skills, have vibrant health, and to raise their awareness in all aspects of their lives. They learn to appreciate all life. A martial artist dwells in integrity, self-discipline, and honor – not to be acknowledged, but to be of service to the world.

"I first met Renshi Hari-Om RadhaKrishna in 2014 when I began my training in Jeet Kune Do. This was my first introduction to techniques and drills that would become part of his EHAMA Eskrima-Kali-Arnis system. Right from the start, Renshi Hari-Om stood out as an accomplished martial artist with crisp technique and strong discipline. He also had a very clear, concise, and friendly teaching style that I appreciated as I fumbled my way through complicated drills. He began teaching formal classes in EHAMA in 2015, and with consistent practice and guidance, I have achieved the level of 2nd degree black belt. I credit Renshi Hari-Om’s teaching for helping me build a strong base in Filipino Martial Arts, that has also helped me learn other systems quickly. Renshi Hari-Om is a great teacher and person, and I highly recommend training under him and learning the EHAMA system."

"I began my training in EHAMA Eskrima-Kali-Arnis in 2015. The EHAMA system is a multi-style system based on the Doce Pares system of Filipino Martial Arts, mostly focusing on weapon techniques and drills with sticks, but also including elements of Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, Ninijitsu, and Classical Yoga. Renshi Hari-Om RadhaKrishna has created a very well-rounded Martial Arts system, and I also appreciate that he has included a focus on health and well-being. He is assisted by his wife, Sensei Nina RadhaKrishna who is also an excellent teacher and Martial Artist. They are a great team and honorable people. I am privileged to be a part of the EHAMA family and to be connected to so many wonderful people. Renshi Hari-Om’s system is adaptable and accessible to truly everyone interested in learning a martial art. I am grateful for Renshi’s teaching and he has helped me build a strong base in the Filipino martial arts that has helped me excel in the other Martial Arts that I train. I highly recommend training in the EHAMA system."
