What to expect - Adult class structure overview

Please note we realise everyone that starts is physically different so that if you are older or carrying an injury you would never be asked to do something that you are not comfortable with doing.

Just some of the benefits our classes can offer

  • Truly effective self-defence technique development for juniors, women and men
  • Development of power, stamina, cardio-vascular fitness, strength, flexibility, concentration, balance, body conditioning
  • Fun, camaraderie, self-discipline, self-motivation, confidence, respect, coordination, self control
  • Regular belt testings that reward real attainment
  • Opportunities to train at seminars in the UK, Europe, the USA and beyond with World renowned instructors
  • No long term or 'rip-off' financial contracts - you can get more than you pay for through dedication and commitment!
How does the training attain these goals?
  • Utilisation of positive reinforcement - particularly in respect of junior students - in a positive environment
  • Pre-set self-defence techniques that teach motion and principles, allowing practitioners to develop spontaneous motion
  • Use of impact pads for Kenpo Cardio and Kenpo Impact training
  • Sparring to develop speed, awareness, hand-eye coordination, responsiveness, spontaneity, respect, control
  • Encouragement of students to maximise their potential and maintain the class momentum

The Belt Levels

In the Kenpo System we use a belt system to distinguish grade and level of ability. Each Adult Student starts with a White Belt and the progression is:

Yellow - Advanced Yellow

Orange - Advanced Orange

Purple - Advanced Purple

Blue - Advanced Blue

Green - Advanced Green

3rd Degree Brown

2nd Degree Brown

1st Degree Brown

1st Degree Black

Levels of Brown are each denoted by a Black tip at the ends of the belt, and grades after Black are given a Red coloured tip on the ends of the belt.
