To whom it may concern, I have had the pleasure of knowing Maurice Gomez for many years and hold him in the highest regard. Hes an excellent martial artist who can both perform the art of American Kenpo and teach it as well. Having shared the mat with Maurice I can personally attest to his skill and knowledge. Aside from being an excellent martial artist, Maurice is a great friend as well, who Im proud to have as my brother in the art. His attentiveness and genuine concern for his students is always apparent, which makes him not only a great teacher, but a great leader as well. Maurice is one of those instructors who understand that theres more to the martial arts than the memorization of routines. He actually teaches the art with such sophistication and professionalism that his students have the opportunity to become great teachers as well.

My son has been taking karate classes from Sensei Jafari for over 4 years. Sensei has helped him with his focus and discipline. His methods are effective as he combines age (and belt) appropriate expectations and fun into all the classes. We enjoy the special classes such as beach training, holding classes in the park, and incorporating weapons classes. Sensei is also very strict on when students test for their next belt level ensuring not only physical ability but mental preparedness. Take one class and you will be convinced that this is the dojo for you!
We've been taking karate at American Kenpo Karate in both group and private class for two years. As an educator who works with both kids and young adults, I appreciate their care and professionalism. I know my daughter is safe with her instructors. She has thrived under their study and has earned her belts through hard work and well executed katas. In addition Kenpo is the best form of self defense for karate. The classes teach discipline, excellent form and responsibility. I would look here before considering anywhere else. They are a step above the rest!
Both of my sons (10 and 7) took Karate lessons from Kevin for about a year. He's an amazing instructor - he always knew how to get the kids excited about the day's lesson but listening at the same time. Always patient and kind, Kevin worked with kids of all skill levels and even some special needs kids in his class. Every single child in his class left feeling accomplished, proud, and confident. We were sad when Kevin moved away - we haven't been able to find another instructor who even comes close to his caliber when teaching kids martial arts. We highly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to learn martial arts, in particular kids!! Thanks Kevin!!
I appreciate the way Shihan Joseph makes time to discuss anything we are concerned about, and helps us address issues our kids may have outside of the dojo. Everyone gets personalized programs that meets the needs of their family, not a cookie cutter type of program. This is the best place to go not only to learn karate, but most importantly for personal growth including confidence!
Kevin James is one seriously dangerous karate man! He personally trained the management team of StaffPro Securty, the nation's leading sporting event security staffing firm. Everyone in attendance praised his outstanding delivery of content and professional manner in which classes were conducted. You're not going to find a better instructor anywhere.
Very helpful and responsive
Our instructors all started out at Red Dragon Karate as beginners. We don't hire from outside. All of our instructors care about the students and their progress. They take pride in their acheivements.
I train karate with Sensei Oliver Aguilera, which in my opinion has the technical experience necessary to teach and make champions. Very dedicated and humble. I surely recommend him. Thank you Sensei

My instruction is hands-on and my attention is focus on YOU rather than in a class full of other karate students. Learning is more effective because any trouble that you have we are able to work on until it is understood. I love teaching in general. I am a history professor and teach karate as a hobby. I grew up as a karate instructor and pursued teaching in the classroom as a profession.
I work with children ages 4 to adult and also work with special needs children.

Our kid's karate classes are a great way for children to get fit and healthy. Martial arts training offers plenty of cardiovascular exercise and can improve flexibility and overall body conditioning. Qualified kid's karate instructors will give children the tools they need to avoid potentially violent situations or resolve them in a nonviolent way. While learning karate, self defense techniques are also taught, which gives them confidence in knowing that if a violent situation can't be avoided, they'll be able to effectively defend themselves.
American Kenpo is an art of perpetual change and it breaks away from ancient traditional philosopies. This art specializes in physics and geometric motions which makes American Kenpo the most scientific martial art on the system!

All levels and ages are welcome. Shito Ryu's five principles of self-defense: * Teni: Taisabaki (footwork) - shifting or turning quickly out of the opponent's way. * Ryusui: Soft blocking - redirecting a strong attack with a circular or deflecting parry. * Raka: Hard blocking - striking an off-center or indirect attack with sudden maximum power. * Hangeki: Defense as attack - a good defense is offense. * Kushin: Springing - a reflexive, darting "out and in" kind of body, shifting from any angle.
