Karate, Kali and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in the Las Vegas area. We have two locations

Tenaya in the Craig Marketplace Shopping Center.
What is Kempo Karate? "True karate is this: that in daily life one's mind and body
be trained and developed in a spirit of humility, and that in critical times, one
be devoted utterly to the cause of justice." -- Gichin Funakoshi Karate translated
either means "Chinese hand" or "Empty hand" depending on which Japanese or Chinese
you use to write it. Kempo Karate can trace its roots all the way back to Ancient
China. From there it spread to Okinawa,
the Japanese mainland and eventually to Hawaii. William Chow blended his families
Hung Gar Kung Fu with
Japanese Karate as taught to him by James Mitose. Chow taught Walter Godin who taught
Feliciano ‘Kimo’ Ferreira.
We teach Children, Teens and Adults with a combination of private instruction and
exciting group classes.
