We teach Jeff Speakman’s Kenpo 5.0 karate system to all ages (adults/kids) and levels of physical capability.

Jeff Speakman's Kenpo 5.0 is an international organisation in over 21 countries around the world.

Kenpo is a comprehensive martial art or karate system for self defense, designed with one purpose in mind, “You are your Welfare”.

We encourage an environment of mutual respect, co-operation and discipline that helps build your confidence. Kenpo is a self defense system first and foremost. We focus on streetwise self defense teaching each individual to utilise their own body structure to be as effective weapon as possible. Kenpo employs the use of concepts and principles of motion like physics, geometry and mathematics to assist with learning the system.
