Curriculum

Student Promise

I am a Kenpo Student, and this is my student promise.
I promise to use my art only for self defense and never for the purpose violence.
I promise to respect all my instructors, to be polite to all students, and to practice safety at all times.
I promise to practice discipline, self control, and respect for others in school, as well as at home.
I am a Kenpo student, and this is my student promise.

MISSION STATEMENT

We will walk the way
of the Peaceful Warrior.
Armed only with Integrity, Discipline,
and Respect,
we will stand for splendid virtue,
for high endeavor,
and sublime wisdom.
We will be a light, not a judge;
a model, not a critic.
We will be apart of the solutions,
not apart of the problems.
We will be ambassadors
of our families, our communities
and our Art.
We will be the best of who we are,
no matter where we are.
We are today’s Responsible
and Compassionate Leaders. 

YOSHIDA CODE

I come to you with open hands,
other weapons I have not.
But should Right or Honor require it,
My hands will bear me out.

The foundation of our Martial Arts Curriculum is a solid Code of Conduct outlined in the Student Promise.
The Student Promise is defined by the Studios' Critical Six.
The Critical Six is then demonstrated and reinforced by the Art of Representation.
It is from this point that Martial Arts training begins.

THE ART OF REPRESENTATION 

“Be the best of who you are,
no matter where you are.”
All students are disciplined in
The Art of Representation.
They learn to recognize the many groups they represent on a daily bases, and the potential to impact those groups for better or worse. Each member is encouraged to take responsibility for how they represent their communities, their families, their teachers, their schools and their Art. 

VALUE STATEMENT

Bridging Communities, Building Character, Being Leadership
