Kempo, fist law, is the most ancient martial art. Originally developed by the Shaolin monks under the Chinese name Chuan Fa, Kempo reached its highest level of refinement and combat effectiveness under the Bushi of Okinawa. This traditional art is taught here at the Y as Kiyojute Ryu Kempo.
This form of Kempo is not a sport, but an extremely effective self defense art. We do not participate in tournaments. Classes are conducted in a relaxed and joyful manner, as they have been in true martial arts schools for the past 1,500 years. Students train as partners with the shared goal of physical, mental and spiritual mastery.
Kempo will give you strength, flexibility and most importantly, the ability to effectively defend yourself.
