Our Kata's are based in American Kenpo; the style established by Master Ed Parker. Our beginner/intermediate Katas are Short One and Modified Long One. Based on the American Kenpo/Tracy Kenpo Traditional Long One Kata; however modified to go in a cross formation instead of a box. Our Advanced Kata is Short Two; also a Traditional Kenpo Kata. In addition, at the advanced level; students will perform their own original form.

Yes - there is a such thing as Christian Martial Arts! Based in 1st Corinthians 9:24-27; JesusStrong Martial Arts promotes training to "win the race". We practice karate for defense only. We practice karate for sport and fitness. We honor God in EVERYTHING we do.
We are JesusStrong. JesusStrong is Yeshua-Do.
Yeshua-Do is Christ's Way!
Our Self Defense techniques are a mixed martial art based in Muay Thai and Washin Ryu; the style established by Master Hidy Ochiai in 1966. We take great favor in techniques that will help someone protect themselves, and get out of the situation fast. Two Hits: The Second and The Last; and in most cases the second is the last! We work on real life self defense situations, as well as incorporate these forms in our Sparring. Our Junior Division spars under Kenpo rules; while our Adult/Teen Division spars under Competitive Kickboxing. We also practice grappling.
A.M.P. stands for "Attitude Manifests Power". Colossians 3:23 states; "Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men..." Hard work, in all forms, pays off. Do it to better yourself. Do it in worship and praise to God for what He has given us. Don't do it to impress others.
Fitness is hard work. A.M.P. is a program within the normal JesusStrong Martial Arts program that is a mix of kickboxing, cardio, and fitness. You will sweat. You will work hard. You will have fun!
