Kenpo is a streetwise martial art that places emphasis on using logic to resolve conflict. If confronted with the threat of attack the Kenpo arsenal of offensive and defensive moves flow into a spontaneous action of strikes, throws and takedowns as well as weapon usage to deal with it.
Kenpo employs quick moves delivered very rapidly and powerfully, the intention is to overwhelm a would be attacker or attackers both quickly and effectively.
Techniques for the most common types of street attack are taught. These include grabs, pushes, kicks, holds, locks and chokes. For our more experienced students we teach defence against multiple assailants and weapon defence against sticks, knives and gun attacks.
The techniques we teach are easy to learn in a step by step syllabus that slowly builds one level on another.
Each level of belt grade has a number of self defence techniques for you to master, before moving on to the next level.
We also teach Kenpo Forms that teach you how to move in a correct way built around specific themes and sets of movements that focus on a particular aspect of your training.
Men, Women and Children all enjoy the benefit as they experience the self-esteem, concentration, confidence and sense of accomplishment that accompanies every skill they master. All sharing in the camaraderie of their fellow students as they share in a common goal.
We are part of an international organisation that is taught in over 50 different countries throughout the world.
Our Academy has an excellent group of dedicated Black Belt Instructor's with many years of experience to assist you in your training and are only too willing to share their knowledge with people who want to learn.
We train in a very open and friendly manner; the hardest part is walking through the door, but it could be a wonderful start to an exciting journey. Just do it you won't regret it, so what's stopping you? I hope to see you at our Academy soon.
