The first phone call was all it took for me to realize that I had FINALLY found what I was looking for. Sensei was a serious, focused and straight-forward on the phone, and described to me what I hadn’t been able to find elsewhere in Wing Chun, Western Boxing, MMA, Muay Thai, etc. I had taken classes in them all and while I did like them, they didn’t offer the intensity, power, or brotherhood I feel at Kenpo Richmond. I have found that being here has given me confidence and a voice with which to speak through a physical framework that hardly anything else matches.
All of the members of the “tribe” are helpful and show me how to get things done. If self defense is what you are looking for, your heart and mind will be set here at Kenpo Richmond. But you will find much more than just self defense. Brotherhood. Power. Intensity. Knowledge. And a foundation to build your discipline upon, no matter where you have been before.
What I’ve learned in the short time I’ve been here so far make up for a lifetime of a search for an art that will leave you knowing you can protect yourself and your family, and be the best “you” you can be.
