Be safe, be fit and learn to protect yourself and your family! Kempo-Goju Karate is a true self-defense art, incorporating a unique blend of circular and rapid Chinese Kempo with the Japanese Goju-Ryu striking, blocking and traditional forms. These styles mix judo, aikido, jujitsu and jodo (short staff). Kempo-Goju has schools in many places in the US and the world. Classes begin with warm-up exercises and stretching. Beginners will focus on learning the fundamentals of punching, kicking and blocking. Advanced students are taught throws, takedowns, and weapon defense. (Ages 9+ - youth under the age of 9 may be accepted with approval from the instructor)
