Programs & Curriculum

Self defense classes for all ages!

In Kenpo, there is a heavy emphasis on practical application of all techniques learned and how they apply to the real world. 

Learn How, Ask Why.

Always Practice, Then Apply.

COVID-19 Information:

We are mask optional for all classes now. 

Additional cleaning information: Mats are vacuumed and then mopped with an RTU disinfectant cleaner. Chairs, pony wall and benches are wiped down with sanitizing wipes regularly. Hand sanitizer is available in the dojo lobby via a touchless dispenser.

In addition to open hand techniques, as you get higher in rank you will also learn weapons such as the bo staff, kamas, tonfas, Japanese sword, Chinese broadsword, etc. If you have an interest in point sparring I also teach techniques and drills. Once it is safer post COVID we will resume sparring in class as well.

Typical belt requirements will have 1-2 katas per rank, 1-4 sets, blocks, kicks, with sparring and weapons required at intermediate and higher ranks. All katas are taught as both a standalone kata and as a kata done with an attacker for all the moves, something which differentiates Kenpo katas from most other systems.

Kids do not have a modified curriculum and learn the exact same material per belt as in the teen/adult class!


Tiny Tigers also learn the same curriculum, but we add in half belts in between white, yellow and orange. Memorization at that age is much harder, and these half belts let them still progress when they hit milestones in their curriculum. We do our best to make sure our Tiny Tigers are having an extremely fun time in their classes, but still manage to sneak the same core curriculum in, just in more manageable chunks for this age group. 

For the Tiny Tigers class we also teach valuable life skills from the Kids Love Life Skills program. Life skills are covered both in class as well as with a take home component for child/parent bonding and a themed coloring page to further help kids engage in the current life skill we are covering. We cover 12 life skills, each for 2 weeks at a time, so every 6 months we make it through the complete rotation. We use the life skill drills to sneak in the Kenpo curriculum!

Reminder: Tuition goes up $5/month/person for all current and new students in 2023. This is a 3.7% increase, the consumer price index rose 9% this past year, and we are doing our best to keep our price increases minimal per year to offset all the rises in costs. 

First month only $79 (includes complimentary uniform)!


Your first class is completely free to try, no obligations. This way you can see if you like it before signing up.

After that your first month will be $79, which includes your first uniform ($40 value). For sizing, please see the Century Martial Arts size guide here
