Kenpo Karate Opens in Palmetto

Nov 04, 2013 07:56PM

Manatee Kenpo Karate Studio has recently opened at 737 East Avenue W in Palmetto. The instructional studio hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30pm to 9pm.
Owner Sensei (Shawn) notes that opening his own studio has been a long-time goal. “We help people from all walks of life get a smart start in the martial arts, whether you are looking for solid self-defense skills, a new hobby, or just want to get in better shape, we’re here to help.”
The studio offers classes for children and adults. “Our youngest student is five years old,” he said. “Age is no limitation.”
Shawn compared the movements to dance, as an art. “Each move in Kenpo is like a letter in the alphabet. A series of moves becomes a word, the words then forms a sentence. Your sentence then becomes a paragraph and ultimately a novel of motion. This sequential flow is the essence of Kenpo.”
A Grand Opening and recital will be held in December.
