To make our members of all ages confident, healthy, and respectful contributing members of society through high quality fitness and Martial Arts instruction
East Taunton Kenpo Karate: Opened in December of 1999 and has stood the test of time and recession! We are committed to provide direction for every Client to complete their goal of Black Belt and beyond.
We provide training in self-confidence, physical fitness and self-defense through the principals of SGM Ed Parker's American Kenpo Karate.
We also offer classes in American Kenpo, Physical fitness & conditioning for Adults & Children, Tumbling and Yoga! All classes are "stand alone" and open to the community!
Kenpo, as taught by Master Michael O’Handley, incorporates the rules and principals of motion as they apply to Kenpo Karate and Jujitsu. Self-defense is achieved through the use of target positioning, striking, locking, joint manipulation and throws with an end result of escape, disarming and restraining. East Taunton Kenpo Karate also teaches the use of traditional weapons including bo staff, nunchuk, sai sword, spear, kama, Kwon Dao, and broadsword.
Classes include cardio, physical fitness and conditioning, empty hand and weapons forms to develop the mind through focus, self-defense techniques to defend against punches, kicks, grabs, holds and multiple opponents. We also work on speed and timing through freestyle and tournament sparring in a controlled environment.
The martial arts is a life changing experience, I truly believe at any given time you could be one hamburger away from a heart attack, a self defense situation away from being mugged (or worse) or experiencing so much stress you are about to implode, and we relieve that pressure!
Please feel free to stop by and visit us during our normal business hours or contact us for further information.
