A Chat with Gilbert Defense Arts
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We teach a traditional martial arts system called Kenpo to ages 4 and up. Kenpo is a well-rounded system incorporating striking, kicking, blocking, and multiple reality-based self-defense techniques. It is known primarily for its fast, in-tight striking capabilities and adaptability of its practitioner.
What’s one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Celebrate the little accomplishments.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The inspiration comes from those we are privileged to teach.
What do you love most about your job?
We love the martial arts and all it can do for someone. We have made it our mission to share that experience with as many people in our community as we can reach out to. Seeing someone accomplish something meaningful and challenging and watching their personal growth is what it is all about.
