United Kenpo Systems™, our organization is based upon respect for the scientific, written work of Senior Grandmaster Ed Parker. The Art of Kenpo Karate is a Living Art. It lives through its schools, instructors and students. The principles inherent in the techniques, forms and sets are prescribed in a specific manner for both physical and mental progress.
Bryan Hawkins has developed a unique and highly successful method of training children. This involves the Kenpo Karate curriculum for children, the Kenpo Cubs program, two summer camp programs, youth tournaments and an annual “board breaking day”. He has built a general youth curriculum designed to challenge, stimulate and engage young people as they progress in their study of Kenpo Karate. With five children of his own Mr. Hawkins is very sensitive to the wide variety of education and motivational tools needed to teach martial arts to children.

A typical class at a Seido dojo consists of the following: stretching and warm-ups followed by review of basic techniques such as striking, kicking and blocking. This is followed by Kata (formal exercise) and self-defense techniques. Sparring, or Kumite, is practiced by more advanced students after they develop control and become comfortable with their technique. The beginner is encouraged to progress at their own pace with no pressure of competition. The competition is not with others, but within yourself. It doesn’t matter whether you are out of shape or in excellent condition, every Seido student progresses at their own chosen rate.

The instructor, Greg Rubinson, is a 3rd Dan (3rd-degree black belt) in Wado-Ryu Karate under Sensei M. Shiomitsu (9th Dan, Hanshi, Chief Instructor of the Wado-Ryu Karate-Do Academy) and Sensei Tyrone Pardue (5th Dan, Chief Instructor of the American Wado-Ryu Karate-Do Academy). He has been practicing Wado-Ryu for over 20 years. His day-job is as a lecturer at UCLA, where he teaches writing and literature.
Gradings for new belts are held approximately two times per year. As a student goes up the ranks, so does the difficulty of the tests. Testing for a belt is an important part of Wado-Ryu Karate-Do as it provides a goal for students to reach, but it is important not to rush into taking a grading if a student is not ready.
At Westchester Wado-Ryu Karate, there are junior grades (for ages 6-11) and senior grades (for ages 12 and up). The junior grades wear colored belts with stripesm while senior grades wear solid colored belts. All senior grades are higher ranks than junior grades.
