Much more than a typical martial art system, American Kenpo uses real-world situations to prepare you in case you ever need to use what is learned. It’s self defense for what you’re likely to encounter.

American Kenpo is not pretty, flashy or impractical. It is designed to get you out of trouble and back home safely - I cannot say as much for those who attack you.

In the studio, we do solid body work and sparring to prepare ourselves. We work hard, we train hard and we fight hard.

Because Kenpo relies on speed and brutaly striking vital targets instead of physical strength, it is extremely effective and can be performed by someone of any body type or experience.
