Martial Arts training is Fitness with a Purpose! Our Kenpo Karate system incorporates the benefits of cross training, interval training, strength training and kickboxing. Because we also believe that a sound body is only part of the equation, we also train to strengthen our minds and spirit. Our adult students tell us that their focus, their attitudes, and overall mental state have improved significantly since joining our program; not to mention that they are having a blast in the process! 

We incorporate the best of several different styles of martial arts to create a well-balanced student so you can defend yourself in any situation. Once you have achieved greater mind and body fitness, you will find that you are far more self-confident in everyday situations that we all encounter. You will come to believe that there are no obstacles that are too tall and no goals that are too large. Our students feel 10 feet tall and bulletproof!

Regardless of your experience or fitness level, you'll be able to learn everything you need to succeed in martial arts and get in the shape you've always wanted to be in while enjoying the many other benefits.
