Kids Martial Arts

Absolutely not. Children learn a lot about what it means to be respectful and polite here. As a result, kids who weren't violent in the first place become even more respectful and kind. Kids with behavior problems often become very respectful and calm.
As a parent, I'm sure you've seen that kids can get injured doing just about anything. Martial Arts is no different, however we take safety very seriously here. Yes, injuries do sometimes happen. But we do everything in our power to avoid them. We do special exercises and stretches to make your child's body limber and flexible.
Kids have a blast here. There's smiling and laughter throughout every class. We have our moments of intense concentration and focus... but we always balance things out with fun and games to keep everything alive and light.
Absolutely. Kids with low self-esteem often come out of their shells. As their skill level increases, they feel more and more confident. Other kids look up to them, just as they look up to other kids who are ahead of them. It builds a sense of confidence, pride, and teamwork.
We have classes for kids as young as 4, and as old as teenagers. Martial Arts is the kind of thing that grows with you. So as kids get older, they learn new techniques, perfect old ones, and advance. When they're younger, it's more about fun and games, with learning thrown in too.
Our martial arts classes have been, and always will be, for boys AND girls! Every class has a good blend of the two as well. In fact, girls often get the hang of it sooner than boys as they're naturally more flexible.
Yes! In fact, martial arts is a beacon of light for kids who just don't fit into team sports. Kids who couldn’t throw a ball well or run fast find that martial arts is accessible to them. It's something they excel at, and as a result, their confidence soars. Plus...no one is left out or sits the bench at K5 Academy of Martial Arts! We make sure everyone gets personal time to work on specific needs for success!

Adult Martial Arts

Because we place such a huge focus on safety and injury prevention, we're proud to say that injuries are very few and far between with our program. In fact, because martial arts gets you in great shape, and makes you strong and flexible, people often see LESS injuries in their lives.
You'll get in shape as you go. You don't have to be in great shape to start.

The great thing about martial arts is you can be at any fitness level and do great. That's because there's no rush or pressure to do anything quickly. You can learn at your own pace.

If you have a knack for it, you can speed through techniques. If it's a bit harder for you, take your time. All we care about is that you're having fun, learning and progressing, and staying safe.

Absolutely not! Martial Arts is about peace, balance & harmony. It's about becoming in touch with your body and all of life. It's about happiness and fulfillment.

The self-defense techniques you learn help you become flexible and strong. They help you become confident and proud.

The guiding principles of Martial Arts help you diffuse situations before violence becomes a part of them. However, if a hostile situation does ever come about, you'll have the tools you need to keep you and your loved ones safe.

Head Instructor

Growing up Mr. Lane was always fascinated with the martial arts from watching old reruns of the Green Hornet with Bruce Lee to Kung Fu with David Carradine.

He sought out different martial arts instructors throughout his younger years, training in everything from Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, and more. “Whoever started a school in my hometown or nearby town, it didn’t matter I was there.”

It wasn’t until he got to college where his dreams would start to come to fruition. He started training in Okinawan Goju-Ryu where he earned his first black belt.

But it wasn’t until 1991 when driving by a karate school, he saw The Perfect Weapon poster in a window, stopped, went in, and signed up - never looking back at another art.

Mr. Lane has spent a number of years in Kenpo, but hadn’t found a home until meeting Mr. Speakman in 2007 and later signing a franchise agreement in 2012. Now that Mr. Lane has found a home, he is fully devoted to Kenpo 5.0 and its future in the martial arts world.
