HOW TO FIND US
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

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

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:
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.
