Our dojo is open to those who would like to learn martial arts for a variety of reasons: self-defense, self-development, exercise, discipline, and of course, fun.
Martial arts teach respect, humility, tradition, and discipline, in addition to life and social skills. Through self-development and persistence, students learn about themselves and how to create harmony in their mind, body and spirit.
Kajukenpo is a unique style with techniques drawn from the following disciplines:
空手 Karate. Karate means empty hand. The word karate is a combination of two Japanese words represented by the Chinese characters shown: kara (first character shown), meaning empty, and te (second character). This name was developed in Okinawa to describe the martial art that developed there.
柔道 Judo. Judo is a combination of Japanese words that mean “gentle way”. It is a Japanese martial art that involves using holds and leverage to unbalance the opponent.
拳法 Kenpo. Kenpo is a Japanese unarmed fighting art that was brought from China to Japan. The word kenpō is Japanese: "Ken" meaning “Fist” and "Po" meaning “Method” or “Law.” In Chinese, the same characters are read as Chuan Fa, or “Kung Fu.”
Although not represented in the name, KI Kajukenpo also includes stylistic elements of Chinese and European boxing.
A class dedicated to sword fighting. We use combat grade LED sabers to work through different HEMA (Historical European Martial Arts) techniques. Some loaner gear and sabers are available. Combat sparring is limited to participants with enough protective gear to be safe.
A very fun way to get a good sweat going while unleasing your inner kid.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
