Kenpo Karate

American Kenpo, meaning” law of the fist”, is a modern combat system of self-defense based upon scientific principles.

American Kenpo is primarily a weaponless martial art, characterized by the use of close-range strikes delivered with speed, power, and maximum efficiency.

For Kids


For Adults

Martial Arts for Children


We are a family-owned and operated Martial Arts studio teaching American Kenpo karate to children (ages 5 and up)

Our kid’s program uses traditional martial arts values to combat issues of peer pressure, self-esteem, motivation, discipline and more.

Martial Arts for Adults


Our Kenpo program is a unique system that effectively combines the power of body and mind to increase your energy, discipline, and fitness for a longer, happier life.

The mental benefits of the martial arts quickly become apparent as students notice improved focus and concentration, greater stress relief and management, improved confidence and an overall greater sense of well-being. 



It’s no secret that society is growing increasingly dangerous and while we would like to believe that we are invulnerable to  violent attacks but no one it.

We owe it to ourselves and our loved ones to learn the important skills and knowledge necessary to protect those we care for.

What Our Students Tell Us

We know we’re the best martial arts school around, but don’t take our word for it. See what our students are saying online.

“One of the best teachers I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.
Honest and straight forward and will teach you everything you need to know to defend yourself”

Jerry Cooper

“I feel so fortunate to have trained 5 Swords Kenpo Karate drills with Sensei Duffy today in Fort Worth. Sir, you Accelerated me. I slipped into the Peralta Kajukenbo Event to do work and learn from Great Men, unranked and underground, and you shared your Kenpo with us all, belted or not. I am deeply grateful for your time and I will commit to retain the principles I learned, Sir. Cheers!”
