The focus of these programs is on teaching the art of Kenpo, specifically, the Tracy System of Kenpo. The curriculum of the system is designed to teach adults real self defense, the skills needed to use the techniques effectively, and the theory behind the movements. Private lessons focus on the techniques, forms, and basics of the system, and provide the student with individual time to ask questions and perfect the skills being taught.
Group workout classes focus on neuromuscular conditioning through repetitive movement of the techniques and basics. The classes are designed to help the student build the power, speed, balance, timing, accuracy, and flexibility necessary to utilize the self defense techniques.
Private Lessons available by appointment
Japanese Yoga with regards to the practice of kenpo is concerned with the proper structure and alignment of the body during movement. It is proper structure and alignment that allows for energy collection, the efficient use of the body, and the proper execution of techniques to maximize power. The practice of japanese yoga is not based on typical indian yoga postures, although these postures may be used to help the student understand the underlying concepts.
"When regarded as a systematic exercise, kenpo can be performed swiftly and vigorously without strain in moving the limbs. The respiration and circulation becomes rapid; the regeneration of the body becomes active. Even a short period of practice is beneficial." - - James M. Mitose, 21st Great Grandmaster of Kosho Shorei Ryu Kenpo Karate.
The focus of our Tai Chi program is health and fitness. Tai Chi emphasizes breathing, posture, balance, strength, flexibility, and movement. Our program focuses on the Yang Style of Tai Chi, and incorporates a blend of repetitive qigong movements to enhance the training and improve the well being of the participants.
Kenpo is a multi-faceted art, and sometimes students find areas of the art that they would like to apply a more concentrated attention to, but they do not wish to slow their progress in the rest of the system. A Short Course consists of 8 private lessons, designed by the instructor with input from the student. Each Short Course will focus on whatever area of training the student wishes, without interfering with the Kenpo Karate Program.
