Kenpo based Self Defense
Open to all adult and teen students of all experience levels.
This class has a primary focus of learning and then applying the Kenpo Karate self defense techniques.
During the first part of this class you will learn a few self techniques out of the Kenpo Karate curriculum. You will practice the techniques on others in the class. During the second portion of the class, you will have an opportunity to practice the techniques against everybody in the class. This will offer you the ability to practice on people of varying size and skill level.
Lastly, the final portion of this class is referred to as Freestyle Kenpo. Here you will have to defend yourself against one or sometimes multiple attackers in a freestyle fashion. This is not free sparring, with some “give and take” and timed rounds, but rather it is focused on defending against and defeating the attacker as quickly as possible. Besides being excellent practice, this training model will boost your self confidence by increasing your awareness and emotional preparedness should you need to call on your training.
Gear: Although this is mostly a non-contact class, accidents do happen, and we recommend bringing a mouthpiece for everyone, and a cup for the men.
Who should attend: Everyone that wants to practice self defense. It is well suited for women and teens as an excellent source of self defense material.
