Our classes are divided into the following:
Beginners – White, Yellow, Orange, Purple
Intermediate – Blue, Green
Advanced – Three levels of Brown
Expert – Black or Dan ranks
To test to your 1st dan rank will take approximately 5 years. We believe that the journey of a martial artist never ends. It is a lifelong very fulfilling commitment. The end goal may not be just about getting your black belt. But if that is your goal for you – it may only just start there. Attaining the coveted black belt is a great beginning goal and will change who you are inside forever. The confidence and self-fulfillment cannot be put into words. We hope that you will consider making our Kenpo family part of your family!
My son has been attending Kenpo classes at Elite since 2009, and we have always been thrilled with the instruction he has received. We love the emphasis on personal development and character building as well as martial arts. Last night I tried my first Jiu Jitsu class. I wasn't sure what to expect (and I accidentally joined the kids class instead of the adult class--oops), but Master James was very welcoming and I felt comfortable right away. It was so much fun, and worked out muscles I didn't even know existed! - Noel
