Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Darn Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

Beginner? You're More Than Welcome.

Even if you've never thrown a kick or a punch in your life... you'll fit right in and have a blast from day 1.

9 out of 10 of our members were total beginners when they first came to us.

That means you're in good company with people who understand what it means to start from scratch. You'll get support, kindness, and help through every step of your training.

Get In Amazing Shape, Fast.

You'll build strength, endurance, flexibility, power, and speed.

Plus: You'll like the way you look. Combined with healthy eating, martial arts sculpts and tones your entire body.

Become A More Confident, Better You.

These classes are challenging. But that challenge forces you to dig deep and meet it head on.

As a result, your confidence will soar as you accomplish more and more. You'll realize how strong you really are on the inside and that strength will pour into every area of your life.

That's the true gift of our Adult Martial Arts classes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

We've been going here 4.5 years! We love the instructors and their curriculum for the kids is great. The kids soak up everything they teach, I'm very impressed. Looking forward to many more years to come.

Ms. Pendley is great! Lets me go at my own pace, tailors lessons to my goals and learning style. Very understanding about the anxiety I suffer that trips me up sometimes. I arrive to my lessons early and get to see her and Mr. B. with the kids' class, and they are very patient with them, and they make their classes fun while still making sure the kids are doing their moves correctly. They are respectful to their students of all ages and gender, and emphasize that to the students. I take private lessons.

Not just a school a family. Our kids now 9 and 15 have been attending the school for just over a year. The changes we have seen in them have been incredible. Just the boost in their self confidence alone has been amazing. This school is a positive place for kids to stay in shape and learn discipline, respect and self defense. The students are also taught to encourage and help fellow students. The wonderful instructors not only care about how the kids are doing in their class but also care about how they are doing in school and at home. They want to help the kids be the best that they can be in life. We looked for a long time for a school that did not focus on competition (being the best) as we wanted to find a school that taught kids to always strive be their best. This school is it!! We feel very welcome when we come in for the kids classes. We are encouraged to stay and watch if we desire (we usually do). The positive attitude that is taught is contagious, you can't help but feel more positive yourself when you leave. Both of our kids have health issues that at times make it difficult for them to participate 100% in class but the instructors are great at working with them during those times. We feel that because of what they have learned here they know that they can achieve anything if they are determined and work hard!! We just can't wait until our 2 year old is old enough to start taking classes!! If you are thinking about putting your kids in martial arts classes come in and check out the school you won't be disappointed, we definitely weren't!!!

If you are looking for a school that participates in tournaments and hands out trophies to make you feel good - or a school that 'sells' you a blackbelt - I would suggest looking elsewhere. If you are serious about learning self defense techniques that WORK and getting into the best shape of your life then Academy of Kempo Martial Arts just might be what you're looking for. The instructors are top notch and serious about helping every student succeed in meeting their personal training goals - so when you are advanced in belt level you know it's because you earned it! This school has a great family atmosphere! You owe it to yourself to stop in and check it out.

I have a four year old and an eight year old, both girls that started going here in September. They love it and this will be a long term activity for them as the instructors couldn't be better. I wouldn't change a thing.
