Kempo Arts (Adult, Teens, and Young Children)

Japanese Kempo Adult Martial Arts Program - Ages 17 and Up

A Japanese art based upon natural laws and principles, and of the self as developed by the late Grandmaster James Mitose, 21st generation inheritor who brought Kempo to the west from Japan. The main base art of study within the Academy is Kosho Ryu Kempo, translated into a blended Japanese Kempo system developed by Master Greco that incorporates Indonesian Silat and his own concepts and principles to improve the functionality of the system.   We school the student about natural laws as they relate to movement, preparatory arts, escaping arts to avoid conflict, controlling (push/pull) arts, and striking arts as applied to an opponent's body.  We support the unity of the Arts around the globe in an effort to preserve the teachings of the pioneers.


Whether your a veteran martial artist looking to expand your knowledge base, advancing up from the Junior Adult program, or someone who has never before experienced the feeling of stepping onto the dojo (school) floor, we guarantee  that you will benefit from one of our programs.

Our system of training emphasizes excellence in self-defense so that the student is well prepared to deal successfully with a personal attack. When you enroll in the Japanese Kempo System, we will take you through a structured curriculum that will highlight the minimum belt level requirements to help you on your way to achieving your goals.

To reach your goal, the journey is not without struggle.  Like all courses of study, we become challenged with new and existing information that sometimes just fails to stick in our minds.  Not to worry!  Sensei's 30 + years of experience teaching multiple disciplines will get you through those tough times as long as you are committed.  Take a look at some of the direct benefits associated with our program.
