Teen/Adult Kempo Karate (13+)
Are you looking to live a safer, more fulfilled life?
Studying martial arts is something anyone, at any age or fitness level, can do. Martial arts classes are fun, empowering, and provide a great workout for teens and adults. Whether you are looking for self-defense, something to keep you active, or to just have fun, our martial arts classes have something to offer.
Our Kempo Karate program for teens and adults brings the element of what most would consider a “traditional” class. It still follows the base curriculum, but includes age-appropriate self-defense and de-escalation techniques.
The style of martial art we study is based on Okinawan Kempo. It incorporates strikes, joint-locks, and pressure points. This style is extensively kata-based, having most of our techniques and applications come straight out of the kata we study. Our focus is self awareness and self defense, not sport.
Just like our art, our curriculum is based around kata, which are choreographed patterns of self-defense movements. The kata is taught in small sections with the self-defense taught along side, in addition to pressure points which help enhance the techniques. As a student progresses in rank, they are encouraged to interpret the moves in kata to develop their own self-defense applications. This helps students think for themselves allowing them to make the kata and style their own.
