The Chickasaw Nation Martial Arts Program is celebrating 25 years of serving and impacting our communities. We visited martial arts sensei, Matt Clark, to learn more about the program. Clark has been an instructor for the Chickasaw Nation for 20 years.

Sensei Clark shares background on the martial arts style taught in the program, Chikasha ittibi (Chickasaw fighter), and the elements of a healthy lifestyle learned through martial arts.
