I have really enjoyed learning Kempo & it’s arts of pressure points & self defense that really works.  The classes are small & the instructor Mish is an excellent teacher.

Master Handwerker is very knowledgeable and is very patient when teaching. I have studied with him for several years and highly recommend him if your want to learn self defense.

Thomas Lee

Washugal, WA

I have worked with Sensei Mish Handwerker for over a decade and I have found very few martial artists whose conviction and dedication to the martial arts to match his. I am glad that he is bringing his knowledge of both karate and Filipino Marital Arts tot he city of Vancouver (my home town). His presence will raise the bar on martial arts standards in this community.
