There is one authentic Okinawa Kenpo Karate program in Colorado and it is located just south of Highlands Ranch in Castle Rock. Depending on what kind of martial arts content you are looking for, it may be the right program for you.
Why Choose Okinawa Kenpo Karate?
You’ve no doubt heard the term “karate” before, often accompanied by “taekwondo”. Sometimes the words are used interchangeably to signify a martial art that involves punches and kicks. Despite it’s casual usage, karate is actually a specific martial art born on the island of Okinawa just south of Japan. Okinawa Kenpo is a style of karate that harks directly from that island and provides a wide variety of self improvement and self defense skills.
The authenticity and uniqueness of the style make it stand out, and (we believe) make it worth your time and investment.
A Program For Serious Students
Okinawa Kenpo is more than just a means for exercise. The skills within the art are designed for life protection (your own and the lives of others). As such, the material is relegated to students 13 years old and above.
The training is safe and the community is supportive, but it is not a “daycare with belts”. If you join, you’ll be treated with respect and given the kind of training an adult needs in the modern world.
Okinawan Weapons as Well as Empty Hand
Part of the Okinawa Kenpo system is the usage of classical weapons (bo, sai, tonfa, nunchaku, etc) known as Kobudo. The Okinawans used these implements to defend themselves during times of war as well as from everyday threats. We continue to train with them to preserve that history. In addition, the concepts of old weapons can easily translate to handy items you’ll find in your home or while out in public.
