The A.K.E.A. is proud to have been in business in the City of Auburn for over 20 years and can be found participating in many local events.  We also host special groups and camps at the School, as well as public blackbelt tests.  Check out some of the A.K.E.A. history in pictures and video.

Thank you to the Allen/Do family, Mrs. Barnette, the Brengle family, Mr. Harmaning, the Moore family, the Mugford family, the Peterson family, and the Tipton family for making Team A.K.E.A.’s project a success.  As they say, “many hands make light work”.  We were able to spread wood chips along both paths in the Community Garden so quickly, that we were able to beat the rain.  Great job!
