Martial Arts Training Classes


CASM offers practical self-defense for  children, ages 5 and up, as well as adults. Our goal is to provide our members with classes that are challenging, both mentally & physically, while maintaining a relatively safe environment. 

American Kenpo Karate is an art designed to be fast and effective, to finish a fight on your feet, and to deal with multiple attackers. This combined with joint locks, throws, takedowns and submissions makes the self defense programs at CASM well rounded and very effective.

You will train progressively, learning small moves that compound into more complex moves. You will practice getting faster at these and find that you have choices in dangerous situations.

Training for your Black Belt can create significant changes in your life. Your muscles will ache, you will get bruised, and you will be stretched out. You'll get stronger and you'll move better. And you'll make new friends.
