Ages 6 and up. Kenpo (“the law of the fist”) based on martial arts includes grappling, ground fighting, positioning and footwork. Kenpo is a combination of hard and soft styles.

This class is self defense oriented not competition based. Concepts are practiced and reinforced through repetition, solo work and partner application. Gain self confidence, self discipline, goal setting, balance and optimal fitness.
