My boys (7 and 9) have been training here for a few years now. They are learning self defense, along with self dicipline. The instructors are highly knowledgeable and skilled in working with all age groups. I am taking a self defense/fitness class and I love it. The atmosphere is very friendly and family oriented, and I would recommend this place to anyone interested in the martial arts and getting in better shape.

Best place to learn!
We can not begin to express the gratitude we have. Our kids love going here and learning. In all the sports our kids have done never have they rushed home to tell us how much fun they had until NOW. Every Tuesday and Thursday they can not get home fast enough to express what they learned with enthusiasm. Our youngest has even changed quite a bit in a good way with home and school life. We highly recommend Academy Of Kempo to ALL! The instructors are all very much involved with these kids lives and they make sure they stay on the straight and narrow path. The instructors are very good at what they do and all the folks enjoy their time with them. They even will stand behind us parents with any decisions that have been made and vice versa. Our only regret....that we did not get our kids in years sooner. What a world of difference that has been made and we can not thank these instructors enough. Please support our local businesses!

Excellent training and people.
I have personally been training at the Academy of Kempo Karate for over 5 years. I can honestly say the decision to train and choosing this school for that training were the best decisions I made in my life. I have learned how to defend myself against all types of threats imaginable. I have gained confidence. I have lost weight and increased my fitness level to about where I was when I was finishing boot camp over 20 years ago. I have both of my kids training here as well and am very pleased with all of the positive impacts it has had on all parts of their lives. Can't say enough good things about this place.

We've been very impressed. Soke Ferrell takes the study and instruction of karate very seriously and ranks are earned (not given). While the techniques and methods are systematic and intentional, the environment is warm and welcoming and my children want to be there as much as possible. There is a sense of community and care among the students and teachers and everyone is there to help one another move forward, gain new skills and advance in rank. Soke Ferrell strikes a great balance of skill mastery and methodical development in a supportive and and encouraging environment.
