Our training facility in Salt Lake City, Utah features a host of amenities including heavy bags, padded mats, full-length mirrors, kicking shields, focus mitts and more.
We started in the basement of a fitness facility in downtown Salt Lake in 2001. Now, we're located at 4679 S 2225 E. in Holladay, Utah.
When you're a member of our Martial Arts school you'll learn the art of KENPO Karate; which is an American system of personal protection. It’s not like the others styles because its built on everyday moves you already make. So, when you learn how to punch, kick, block, and strike, it will be easier for you to learn and do. KENPO blends movements from different styles like Kung Fu, Wing Chun, Western Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, JuJitsu, and more into one cohesive blend. In fact, it is considered one of the original mixed martial arts (MMA).
We've had the privilege of teaching a wide range of professionals including state and local police officers, state troopers, military, Federal agents, doctors, lawyers, housewives, store owners, professors, college students, and more.
Many people train here because we only teach adult men and women over the age of 18 (unlike other schools in town that combine kids and adults into the same classes). Others are here because it’s practically like having private lessons with our low instructor to student ratios; because they never get lost in the crowd. Or because we specialize in helping those with little-to-no experience get a smart start in the martial arts by offering a simple and easy 100% risk-free trial program to see if we’re a good fit, first.
When you join you’ll also gain more than just solid self-defense skills.
Develop self-confidence. What you learn in class directly impacts your ability to project yourself with confidence in your everyday life and can help minimize your chances of becoming a victim. Attackers look for easy prey. Not those who have the confidence to stand up to them.
Sharpen your mind. By memorizing new routines, movements and vocabulary, you’ll help keep your mind sharp and in focus. Our dynamic system helps you concentrate better; which can help you to be more productive at work or at school.
Get into better shape. You’ll not only gain more cardiovascular endurance, you’ll also start toning up your body and losing some of those unwanted pounds.
Gain Peace of Mind. Walk with confidence knowing you have a fighting chance at protecting yourself and/or your family if necessary. Learn a practical and effective system that blends striking, kicking and grappling moves (like chokes, arm bars and takedowns) into one powerful self-protection system anyone can learn.
Reduce your stress. We all carry it in our shoulders and necks. The pressures of deadlines and home life can sometimes make things incredibly tense. Give yourself an outlet that will allow you to release the stress that everyday life can cause you. When you start training on a regular basis, it’s amazing at how much your worries and frustrations can be minimized.
We've had students from all cities in Salt Lake County including Bountiful, Bluffdale, Cottonwood Heights, Draper, Herriman, Holladay, Midvale, Murray, Riverton, Salt Lake City, Sandy, South Jordan, South Salt Lake, Taylorsville, West Jordan, and West Valley.
Best of all you don’t need any previous experience or be in shape, flexible, athletic or coordinated to get started training in our proven martial arts program for adults.
