The internationally certified instructors at American Institute of Kenpo cultivate warriors of all ages and skill levels with a variety of karate programs. A comprehensive system of modern self-defense and fitness, kenpo helps build focus and self-esteem while equipping students with moves fast enough to outmaneuver vicious mongooses. For one hour twice a week, grasshoppers as young as age 4 learn how to protect themselves from strange people and familiar ninjas, and older students gradually immerse themselves in the complete American Kenpo System. Founded on the work of Senior Grandmaster Ed Parker, this system imparts basic kenpo skills through self-defense techniques, sets, katas, and Mortal Kombat combos to aid pupils in their crime-fighting missions. As students progress, they earn merit badges and belts, which can be displayed on their uniforms or sewn onto a memory quilt.
School of American Kenpo
At School of American Kenpo, third-degree black belt Ron Hickey calls on 15 years of martial-arts training to instill each student with not only strength and technique, but also character, confidence, and inner peace in every class he leads. Though the roots of traditional American Kenpo run deep in the studio, Hickey encourages his students to blaze their own trails in their development in the martial art. From four-year-old fighters just starting out to older athletes with hopes of achieving a black belt, School of American Kenpo seeks to help every student achieve their personal, fitness, and self-defense goals.
