Kenpo Karate

Learn How. Ask Why.

Always Practice. Then Apply.

Are you an adult or parent looking for a martial art which teaches extremely practical self defense? Trying to improve your focus, core strength, flexibility and balance? Do you or your child like understanding the why behind everything so you're not just copying patterns but learning things which actually make sense and can be used outside the dojo? 

What sets Kenpo Karate apart from other martial arts styles, is that it cultivates the critical thinker mentality. Every form taught in Kenpo Karate is introduced both solo, done by yourself, and also as a series of practical self defense moves with attackers. If you have ever had that light bulb moment of understanding, that is the magic of Kenpo Karate. You will learn how to defend yourself against multiple attackers in real life situations.

Fundamentals of Kenpo Karate include an emphasis on no wasted movement and economy of motion. We focus on blocking and counterstrikes to vital organs & pressure points. Our techniques use linear and circular strikes with intermittent bursts of speed and power. Kenpo Karate is highly effective and doesn't require you to be able to over power your opponent with brute force.

Instructor & Owner

Cat Gurinsky

Cat has been training in martial arts since 2000. She holds black belts in Karate (2004), Tae Kwon Do (2009) and Shaolin Kenpo Karate (2016), and has also studied in American Kenpo, Small Circle Jujitsu and Iaido. She has been teaching for most of her martial arts career. In 2016, Cat moved to Austin, TX and founded Immortal Tiger in 2017. Prior to opening the dojo, the only Kenpo in the Austin area were Ed Parker's American Kenpo and Fred Villari's Shaolin Kempo, making Cat the first person to bring Ralph Castro's Shaolin Kenpo to Texas.

Cat Gurinsky's lineage:

-> Master Professor Bill Grossman

--> Senior Grand Master Rick Alemany

---> the late Great Grand Master Ralph Castro

 

To this day, Cat continues to actively study both Shaolin Kenpo and Iaido (Japanese sword). Her parent dojo for Kenpo is Bill Grossman's School of Kenpo Karate in South San Francisco, CA where she trains directly under 9th degree Master Professor Bill Grossman and 8th degree Professor Pati Grossman. She flies back to the bay area a few times a year to work with Master Professor and continue advancing in rank and technical skills.  Since April of 2020, Cat has also been joining their virtual black belt classes twice a week & receiving 1 hour private lessons virtually with Master Professor Bill Grossman.
