MARTIAL ARTS STYLE 
Our style of martial art is Shaolin Kempo Karate, which blends traditional Japanese hard-style Karate, with the circular motions and rapid striking elements inherent to all forms of Kempo, with the additional soft-style elements of Chinese Kung Fu.
 
BELT TESTING/RANK PROMOTION
Students earn the opportunity to advance in rank by demonstrating: 
1) Knowledge and proficiency of required materials 
2) Regular class attendance and completing sufficient time at their current rank (please note that the interval between ranks becomes greater as students progress).
3) Adherence to our school's code of conduct, also known as our student creed, and demonstrating these tenets both inside the dojo and outside the dojo in their daily lives. We recite the student creed at the end of each class.
4) Students who do wish to earn the rank of green belt must have competed in forms and sparring in at least one tournament.
 
Code of Conduct/Student Creed
  • Courtesy - Showing sincere respect for others
  • Integrity - Being honest and doing what is right
  • Perseverance - The ability to endure hardship and not succumb to adverse circumstances
  • Self-Control - Exercising appropriate restraint and control of one's self, both physically and emotionally, in all aspects of martial arts training and daily life
  • Indomitable Spirit - Self-confidence and unwavering commitment in striving to achieve one's goals and ambitions within martial arts, academics and daily life
