Since moving to Richmond in 2005, I started looking for a dojo at which I could train. Many years and a brief foray into Rugby kept bringing me no closer to a dojo to call home. A close friend recommended Kenpo Richmond as he’d heard great things. He was NOT wrong. After nearly four months of training at Kenpo Richmond, I find myself wishing nothing more than to continue my studies here as long as I can. The practical methods and approach to true self defence is refreshing. Here you will find no fluff, no flair, just honest, hard working Kenpoists who have a love for the art and science that is Kenpo. I especially like the tribe aspect of this dojo. It takes a normally individualistic practice of martial arts and turns it into a team effort. Not one person in this dojo will turn you down if you ask for clarification or help understanding the how’s and why’s. Not only do I find myself more centered and relaxed as I progress in my studies of Kenpo, I also find myself having lost 16 pounds in those 4 months! If you sew the seeds to bettering yourself in this dojo, it will return those efforts ten fold.
