A Chat with Jeff Speakman's Kenpo 5.0 North Bay, CA
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We teach kids self-defense in a traditional setting with defense techniques, forms, sets, grappling, and sparring. We’ll help your child develop confidence, respect, self-esteem, character development, leadership, coordination, power, flexibility, focus, concentration, balance, and endurance.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
It doesn't matter what age, gender, or skill set you have when starting martial arts. We will teach you everything it takes to succeed in martial arts or anything else you decide to try. Come in with a positive attitude and willingness for fun, and we’ll get you started!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We aspire to empower our kids to become strong both physically and mentally. We strive to teach them the skills to avoid being bullied and be mindful of others. Our goal is to develop their life skills to become accomplished in anything they put their mind to.
What do you love most about your job?
We enjoy feedback from parents when their child improves in school and how he or she is more confident and thus, more social. We enjoy seeing how excited every child gets when he or she learns and retains something new! The best is sharing in their joy when they have accomplished something special.
