In 1988, about a year after moving to the Pacific NW, I decided that I wanted to fulfill a lifelong dream and train some form of martial arts. Because I'm very methodical, I visited about 6 different martial arts schools, and even took some group classes. After evaluating my alternatives, I decided that I wanted to train at Academy Of Kempo Martial Arts. I liked the combination of private lessons and group classes, and the style was very intriguing. This decision was one of the best of my entire life.
I've now been training at Academy Of Kempo Martial Arts for over 18 years. It's one of the best things that I've done for myself physically and mentally. Always challenging, I've never stopped learning new things, either about the art of Kung Fu, or about myself. Even though I'm now over 50, I'm in the best physical shape that I've ever been in. I've gained in confidence as well as in my ability to focus on demanding tasks and relieving the stresses and demands of a difficult job.
Academy Of Kempo Martial Arts gives you wonderful opportunities to face up to your self, and break through your physical and mental barriers to achieving your goals. It's a safe environment, and the instructors allow you to learn at a pace appropriate for you. The other students are tremendously supportive. Training at Academy Of Kempo Martial Arts is one of the best things you can do for yourself; I know that it has been for me.
