This class is designed for an older youth and goes into more depth than the cubs’ class. Students are required to know a longer curriculum at each level. Students are taught proper falling techniques, defense techniques, strength/coordination development, and conflict recognition and preparedness. A variety of strategies are taught to students for conflict resolution, which in turn leads to a sense of empowerment and confidence. Dragons are also encouraged to be junior assistants with the cubs, modeling their knowledge/ leadership and instilling in them the responsibility of giving back to community. Through their teaching they learn to master concepts they teach and develop an investment in the students they work with. The beauty of maturity and leadership comes when sudents are empowered and trusted to convey instruction to our cubs. Responsibility creates an air of respect that is communicated throughout the school.
Ages 5 – 9
M / W 6-6:40

Adults (Minimum age 14 w/approval)
M, W, Th 7-8
Adult classes include a comprehensive curriculum that scaffolds learning at each level. Students will gain knowledge in identifying the types of attacks that arise on the street, and through kenpo concepts, develop an understanding of how to defend themselves from those attacks. As a student trains and becomes more adept, they become mechanics of motion with the ability to cope with an array of conflicts. Through class a student learns to condition their minds and bodies to handle challenges of conflict and develop personal confidence through awareness. The added benefit for adults is a sense of measureable success and improvement which often is missing in a daily routine.
Adult classes include advance skill sets to appeal and develop higher level students, as well as, meeting the needs of the new and intermediate students. Each level attendee will find classes inspiring and thoughtfully constructed to maximize learning and achievenment. Come and feel the experience.
