Machatz teaches sound principles of self defense. No gimmicks. No fancy moves that look impressive, but turn out to be useless in a real confrontation. We also teach you to control your power, avoiding the potential injuries.

We also welcome people with physical limitations to study at Machatz. Because Machatz training is based on a foundation ofsound principles of self defense – rather than rote techniques – you can learn to defend yourself even if you don't have full use of your limbs, or are in a wheelchair.

  • Private Lessons are self-defense & strength training, taught one-on-one or two-on-two;
  • Adult Self-Defense Classes – Men and Women, 18 years and over;
  • Children's Self-Defense After-school Classes – Boys and Girls under 18.

All other hours are reserved for private or small group training. We will continue to add classes as demand and membership grow.

Modern Self Ddefense Style — “Ultimate” Kenpo is a blended style that takes the “best of the best” from Karate, Kung Fu and Jiu Jitsu and combines it into one system that works in almost any situation and is adaptable to any body style. This combination of the Classical, Practical and Tactical aspects from each style forms a system that teaches you how to defend yourself on your feet or on the ground; empty-handed or against a weapon.

In addition to our ability to customize our program to fit your unique needs, goals and abilities, our classes are also separated by age. While many dojos mix age groups, we separate ours so we can tailor the instruction to the needs of each age group.
