URBAN TIGER KEMPO
Dive Right In
Urban Tiger Kempo is a Full Contact modern system of Street Karate which includes Punching, Kicking, Grabbing, Pulling, Locks, Throws, Take-downs, Body movement and Basic Ground work. The core of this system is Ashihara Karate which is considered to be the most practical style of Karate to come out of Japan and the future, we believe, of Karate. We have gone further adding the influexes of Chin Na, Shuai Jiao, Aikido, Judo, Jujitsu and TaiChi to create this Kempo style.
We teach you how to use your own instinctive reactions to defend yourself efficiently and effectively. We have separate classes for both Adults 12+ and Junior students aged 5 to 11 years old.

This is a fresh version of Kickboxing. Originating from Ashihara Karate and with influence from Muay Thai Boxing, This K-1 style of Kickboxing includes everything that you would expect from a Kickboxing school. We have several National and International champions training with us in our "no egos" classes.
Kickboxing is a high intensity, aerobic form of martial arts. It involves kicking and punching movements and is practiced both as self-defense and as a cardio fitness sport. If you are interested in kickboxing, you will most likely need to join a class, as it involves precise technique and personal instruction. A kickboxing class usually lasts 45-60 minutes, and you can burn up to 800 calories per class.
