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.
