Martial Arts Classes
The most well-known martial art name in the world is called Karate. Karate is actually based on a blocking and then counter striking fighting style. Kenpo Karate also teaches kicks, leg buckles and sweeps and how to strike effectively but more importantly, the reasoning behind each block, strike or kick. Kenpo Karate is not based on strength or flexibility but on the “Laws of Physics”. We teach you to manipulate the movement of your attacker for you to obtain maximum speed, power and targeting while exerting a minimal amount of energy. Kenpo’s emphasis on speed of action and accuracy over pure power, combined with its use of vital targets make it easy to be learned by anyone. All students receive a written manual with instructions as they work on each belt level explaining and detailing each of the movements for the techniques.
Do you want to learn how to defend yourself and your loved ones, have more confidence, improve safety awareness, be in better shape, or learn a new set of skills? Kenpo Karate Academy is here to help do all of that. Kenpo Karate Academy has years of experience teaching the techniques, methodology, self-awareness and self-confidence that come from Kenpo Karate. We train hard because we believe that how you train is how you will fight. Many people believe that joining martial arts means that you will have to spar, which can turn people away from an activity that otherwise has everything they are looking for. This is not true, sparring only occurs for those who wish to. We will teach you disarming techniques against weapons such as clubs, knives, hand guns and assault rifles and then how to use these weapons against the attacker.
SELF DEFENSE AND SAFETY AWARENESS
There are some streets in our cities that we would rather not walk down alone at night. Usually, the thing to do is just avoid these places, but sometimes trouble comes to you. When it does, it is best to be prepared. Kenpo Karate Academy offers basic Self-defense and Safety Awareness classes that not only teach you the basic tools you need to protect yourself but safety awareness to avoid those situations. Our goal is that if and when a situation arises, you will have the ability and confidence to defend yourself and get away from an attacker.
Children need lots of activity to use all the energy they have and grow up healthy and strong. But learning a martial art is much more than that. It also starts a child on a lifelong path of enjoying physical activity in a positive atmosphere teaching self-discipline and giving them self confidence in knowing how to defend themselves. We use a variety of different teaching techniques that include interactive games and instruction manuals to help our students (and their parents) remember and learn what we teach them. Each student moves at their own pace depending on their own abilities and skill level. Many people believe that joining martial arts means that you will have to spar, which can turn people away from an activity that otherwise has everything they are looking for. This is not true, sparring only occurs for those who wish to.
