What About You?

What do you think would happen to you if it came down to a situation which would require you to defend yourself or your loved ones?

Have you got it?

First —Chinese Kempo Karate is a combination of self-defense and awareness of the vital areas of the human body—which, in a time of civil unrest and assaults upon individuals, is of importance. Kempo teaches one to deal instantly and effectively if the situation should arise.

Second —Chinese Kempo Karate makes you physically fit by increasing one's endurance, strength, muscle tone, and mental alertness.

Third —It is the principle of courage. Through Kempo Karate, one develops self-esteem, a positive attitude, and confidence in being able to protect yourself, thus developing courage.

The originator of our Kempo Karate system said, “War and killing is wrong, but it is also wrong not to be prepared to defend and protect one's self and family.”

Children in Kempo Karate —Children play a significant role in martial arts. The Universal Kempo Karate Schools Association acknowledges this and has gone to great measures to develop the martial arts leaders of tomorrow. Currently, the Universal Kempo Karate Schools Association and its instructors have taught and trained thousands of children in Chinese Kempo Karate. The children take up Kempo Karate for fun, sports, and self-defense. In addition, discipline is emphasized to all children. They are taught respect for themselves and others, taught to listen to their parents, and to become better students in school, by obtaining a positive attitude.

Parents are always welcome and urged to observe the training classes. In this aspect, we feel confident that the parents will fully appreciate the discipline and character the Chinese Kempo Karate training will develop in their child.

Safety is strictly emphasized.

The qualified instructors and trainers are trained in the basic and advanced techniques of Kempo, Karate, and Jujitsu.
