Private and Group Lessons

Learning self-defense helps you feel safe and confident in today’s society. Martial Arts are an excellent form of stress management. Getting in shape and feeling good offers a balance to our often busy and demanding lives. Martial Arts improve the quality of your life by teaching you valuable life and success skills such as mental focus, self control and life balance.
Our adult martial arts program offers a curriculum that is deeply rooted in tradition and balanced with progressive and innovative teaching methods. Kenpo Karate teaches various striking, blocking and kicking exercises that build foundation, proper form and technique. It offers focus, mental discipline and practical self-defense against single and multiple attackers. Sparring, which is optional, builds reflex, timing and “how to react” spontaneously without knowing your opponent’s attack. Above all, Kenpo Karate teaches the practitioner to be the best person they can be through self-discipline, self-confidence and self-respect.
Kenpo Karate strives to maintain a balance between its “martial” aspect and its “art” aspect. The “martial” aspect is expressed by a fast, powerful, effective and practical method of self-defense. The “art” aspect is expressed by its commitment to both tradition through presentation of form and the pursuit of excellence through self-expression, artistic creativity, and humility.

Our 6yo has been going to classes there for the last (almost) three years and our 3yo just started classes - They both love it. All in all, we can't say enough good things about Lama's and the ladies.

A.D. Yelp Review

I've been taking my 4 year old to Lama's Kenpo Karate for 2 weeks and he is totally HOOKED.  Ms. Thompson and Ms. Fernandez are amazing.  It's refreshing to see people who expect a high level of respect from kids but actually reciprocate.
