Kenpo Strikes and Kicks
Students will learn how to kiai loud and powerful, how to use rotation/pivots to their advantage, and how to apply intensity/focus to their attack.
Sweeps & Takedowns
Students will learn how to fall properly to avoid injury. Many techniques will contain sweeps, takedowns, or groundwork. Students will learn how to "slap out" to absorb energy and avoid injured elbows and limbs.
Students will be expected to learn forward rolls and backward rolls as well as basic jiujitsu ground fighting.
Combinations & Techniques
These combinations help develop the students reaction time and build their own defensive solutions to get out of danger fast.
Kata, Pinan, Heian, & Weapon
As they advance, students will learn weapon forms using the bo and nunchucks. Black belts will be introduced to the broad sword, tonfa, kama, and sai forms.
Advanced students achieving the rank of Black Belt will also begin to learn the Shotokan Heian forms to advance their study of the Martial Arts.
At the end of each month students will be expected to spar with their classmates to gain confidence in defending themselves. This non-point based sparring prepares students to breath properly while under pressure, to hold their guard up for protection and how to use space and angles properly.
New students will be introduced to sparring slowly with "one step" practice to gain confidence and technique.
Self Defense & Fighting Techniques
Advanced students will learn defense from guns and additional knife attacks. They will learn to breaking out of choke holds against the wall, on their back and other potentially compromising positions.
The speed of the attacker will increase as the student becomes more proficient.
Respect, History & Tradition
These core values represent our Dojo. Children will learn the school creeds and the school oath. They will learn how to utilizes the values in their everyday life and grow to be more respectful teenagers.
Children 12+ years will be evaluated for integration into the teenage/adult classes. Younger students can be recognized by their junior belt rank (their rank color with a black stripe through the center).
