Why Our Martial Arts Program Is So Darn Powerful.

Most martial arts force you to "retrain" your body to do things that don't feel natural.

Not here.

We've crafted a program that works WITH your body's natural instincts - not against them.

That means it's FAST to learn, and EASY to use when you need it most.

You'll discover:

Incredible hand to hand combat techniques

How to stay safe when surprise-attacked - and escape

How to defend yourself & the ones you love from an armed attacker

What to do against opponents much larger than you in size

How to turn your environment into a weapon to use against an attacker

How to identify and escape danger BEFORE it happens

Ultimately: How to stay safe & live a peaceful life

Frequently Asked Questions

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It's because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It's because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program - it's a very small risk.
People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you're not in great shape, don't worry. Go at your own pace, and we'll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you'll be in better shape than ever!
No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

My son takes classes here and the owner Mr. Shepard is great. He has helped with my son's attitude and determination tremendously. I enjoy being able to watch the kids learn new and hone previously learned techniques. It's pricey, but worth it. The monthly membership doesn't include all the extra gi attire, etc. However, we were introduced by a super discount which seems common with entry level kiddos. I'd love to try adult classes.

Excellent school to attend to begin your journey to martial Arts. Kenpo is a good full contact art that is good for stress relieve and get in shape while learning how to be competent and confident in your ability to defend yourself. Mr. Shepherd is a good instructor who's work shows through his higher ranked students and trickles down all way down to the beginners. All are welcomed at this school. They also have kick boxing and sparring classes too. Would highly recommend and I'm thankful that there is such a good opportunity here in Fortuna.

Two of my five grandchildren attend karate lessons and love every minute! I highly recommend this establishment! I am impressed with their professionalism, kindness and quality program! My other 3 grandsons will attend as soon as they are old enough!

We have 3 girls who have been taking Mr. Shepard's karate class for almost a year, and we have been so impressed by the increase in their ability and their confidence. When one of the girls began, she just stood on the mat, head faced down, too shy to try. Mr. Shepard was patient yet stern with her, and she has grown in leaps and bounds!

My daughter goes to this program. Mr. Shepard is so patient with the kids and is able to firmly, kindly and with respect re-guide their focus and attention span back to the techniques and values of Kenpo. This class has given my daughter a motivation to practice at her skill and practice respect to her parents. I would and do recommend this class to everyone.
