We provide low cost programs to enhance safety awareness and self-defense. They emphasize communication skills, responsible citizenship, and drug avoidance. Students range in age from 5 to 65.
It is not a sport karate class, nor is it a 2 hour "quick fix/feel good' seminar. We teach practical self-defense. The children are taught a junior version and the adults are taught Ed Parker's Kenpo Karate system.
I am the head instructor and a Kenpo Karate 8th degree Black Belt. I have studied human motor learning at the graduate level. I have studied the martial arts for over 50 years and have taught children and adults for over 35 years.
I enjoy teaching children and adults life long lessons, setting goals, and strategies. Each new student provides me with a new challenge.

Children take and complete an 8 class course that teaches them directions, the kenpo clock, 4 basic blocks, 4 basic kicks, 2 punches, 8 safety topics, and self-control.
Adult are taught the Kenpo yellow belt course.
My undergraduate degree is in Biology. I have extensive post graduate classes in Human Motor Learning, teaching credential for K-12 in both Life Science and Physical Science, and an MBA. I have also studied several styles of martial art and have an 8th degree Black Belt in Kenpo Karate.
For children, sessions usually are 8 lessions for $5 to $7 per lession (depends on the school district that the session is held in).
For adults, it is pretty much the same except for the Sat. afternoon class 12:30 - 2:00 for $12 per month.
Teaching is required to earn a Black Belt in Kenpo. After that it's just natural.
All types of children including those with disabilities. All types of adults except those that have commited domestic abuse or are drug addicts.

Observe a class. Don't sign any longterm contracts. Believe only 10% of what you see on the internet. Check thing out.
Students should be available on class days and times. Don't bother an instructor if all you want to do is waste his time.
