Our style of karate is known as Shaolin Kempo. The style aims toward mastering strikes with the hands/arms, kicks, throws and pins/jointlocks. Where as most martial art styles aim to be proficient in one of these categories, Kempo aims to improve them all. Thus, if your opponent is a better striker, you can grapple and vice versa.
To keep our karate thriving and up to date, we introduce techniques from various other martial arts including Wrestling, Sambo, Boxing, Aikido, Muay Thai, and Jiu-Jitsu.
