Hello everyone!
Welcome to Asian American Kenpo Karate; a self-defense based martial art that is designed to teach its students how to protect themselves in today’s society. A combination of Shaolin Kempo, American Kenpo, and American Goju, Asian American Kenpo Karate is a hybrid art that will excite any student. By combining basics, forms, combinations, techniques, and sets, every student will be able to develop into the best martial artist that they can be.

Our Pee Wee classes are for 4 and 5 year olds. During this half hour class, they will focus on learning how to follow a routine, follow directions, and work on good listening skills. As they are just beginning their school years, this class will not only help develop these skills, but also work on gross motor skills while learning the basic fundamentals of karate in an exciting environment. The blocking system, basic punches and kicks, and techniques that focus on how to keep themselves safe (what to do around strangers, etc.) will be worked on.

Students between the ages of 6 and 12 years
will be able to join our beginner children’s class. These classes are one hour long. Here students will learn various techniques to protect themselves as well as develop physical fitness, flexibility, and self confidence in a fun environment. As they learn how to protect themselves, a strong emphasis is placed upon the responsibilities of learning a martial art (self-defense rather than fighting). Progress is rewarded with the advancement of rank as specific goals are met.

The adult classes start at age 13. These are hour long classes for anyone who has ever had an interest in learning something new. Martial arts classes are the perfect solution to improving physical fitness while at the same time learning methods of self-defense. It is also a great way for parents with children who are active in karate to connect with their children by creating a common hobby.

Pee Wee classes are held on Mondays and Wednesdays and all of the other age groups are offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays. You may choose how often you would like to attend classes when signing up; the more frequently a student attends, the faster they will progress as this allows more new information to be introduced as well as previously learned skills to be reinforced. If there are any questions you might have or to register for a class, check in at the front desk and they can assist you further. We look forward to seeing you.
