Programs & Curriculum

Weekly self defense classes!

Classes are open for all ages and focus on the Kenpo Karate curriculum as taught to me by my instructor, Master Professor Bill Grossman. There is a heavy emphasis on practical application of all techniques learned and how they apply to the real world.

COVID-19 Information:

IFA re-opened on May 18th, and we have been holding hybrid virtual + in person classes for the adult class from 6:30-7:30 on Tuesdays & Thursdays. Kids class from 5:30-6:30 is only in person. 

Masks are currently required for class.

Schedule

  • Kids Class: (Ages 7-12) 5:30pm-6:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday

  • Teen/Adult Class: (Ages 13+) 6:30pm-7:30pm on Tuesday and Thursday

  • We are planning to start a Saturday afternoon class as well after COVID-19 is behind us. 

 

Private lessons are available in 30 minute blocks, please discuss with Ms. Cat on availability and timing.

In addition to open hand techniques, as you get higher in rank you will also learn weapons such as the bo staff and the kamas. If you have an interest in point sparring I also teach techniques and drills.

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!

 

I hope to also add a Tiny Tigers class (4-6 year olds) in the future when we have enough interest, so if you have a younger child please reach out to me to discuss. Tiny Tigers (4-6 year olds) 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.
