A NEW BEGINNING
The expansion to a new and larger dojo (martial arts gym) has coincided with the formation of STS Combative Systems - a partnership encompassing The Armoury and Submission Factory. This allows access to over 20 weekly adult classes including Kenpo, MMA, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu including no-gi submission grappling, fitness clases and most recently, Kickboxing. A full timetable can be viewed here.
The new address is Unit 3 / 42 Berriman Drive, Wangara.
KENPO GRADING - JULY 2011
KENPO UPGRADE 2011
The different belt levels of our Kenpo syllabus have separate themes which develop specific skill sets. For example, Green Belt takes into account environmental considerations while using obstacles such as walls to advantage. This year, there is now a document that details the path ahead. The "Roadmap to Yellow Belt" can be viewed here (pdf format).
