WARRIORS (3-5 yrs.)

Our Warrior martial art program introduces Kajukenbo to students 3-5 years of age.  The curriculum is modified to achieve fitness and focus through fun. Classes help teach self-discipline and socialization skills.  The self-control and concentration aspects of the curriculum have proven to be especially beneficial to children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.  Our teachings will also improve balance and coordination.


The Kids martial art program introduces Kajukenbo to students 6-12 years of age.  The curriculum is exactly the same as the adult class, but is modified to their abilities and attention.  The classes are fun and strict at the same time, teaching students respect, while they gain confidence, focus, and self-control.  This class/program has a higher focus on morals, values, academics, and a student’s character.


The Teen/Adult martial art program introduces Kajukenbo to students 13 and up.  We’ve added the teens with the adults due to their height and maturity. Whether you’re looking to gain basic self-defense skills, or hoping he/she will learn self-discipline, Kajukenbo is a great teaching tool.  Both Teens and Adults find these classes beneficial in the areas of self-defense, mentoring, and motivation.

It’s a very common misconception that the martial arts (karate) causes aggression.  In fact, the opposite is true. Children kick and punch anyway – it’s natural. But martial arts isn’t about kicking and punching, that’s only the vehicle.  It’s about learning self-control, discipline, respect and perseverance. The majority of our students never engage in confrontation at school or on the playground.  They find it much easier and more mature to simply walk away. When a student walks away from confrontation, it is not because they are afraid, but they understand the issue at hand is not worth the repercussions.

Kajukenbo is the original Mixed Martial Art, and the only true American Martial Art.  Kajukenbo was founded in Hawaii in 1947. The art was developed by a number of Black Belts calling themselves “The Black Belt Society”.  This group consisted of black belts from various martial art styles and backgrounds who met and trained together. This was the beginning of an evolutionary and adaptive style designed to combine the most useful aspects of the arts.  

There are five men credited as co-creators of Kajukenbo, and its from their respective arts that Kajukenbo draws its name.
