Having obtained my black belt from US Kenpo Kai in 1997, I can first handedly say that the training and philosophy at this association will enhance your lives physically, mentally and spiritually. In today's unforgiving world, one must have the proper confidence and discipline to achieve the levels of success that allow us to live rewarding and healthy lives. Sifu Urban and the US Kenpo Kai team instilled these, and other positive traits in my life that have allowed me to procure nothing less than greatness as a member of society and within my own family. American Kenpo is well known as one of the most formidable self defense systems in the world. The reality of our world is that there are many who turn to pain and violence to benefit themselves. Although avoidance is the first rule of self defense, I've encountered situations where it was impossible to do so, and my Kenpo training is what has allowed me to keep myself and my family safe on more than one occasion. Today, I am a better person b/c of my friends and family at US Kenpo Kai. I have multiple successful businesses and a love of life. Having exposed myself to a plethora of martial arts from all over the globe, I can honestly say there is nothing out there like American Kenpo. The method of training and its results just after your first few classes are amazing. Whether it's for self defense, health, working out, self-discipline, or any other reason to better yourself, you will find it at US Kenpo Kai. It's one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life that will continue with me forever.
This is not just a martial arts school it's an academy ran by a husband and wife where they show balance and create a comfortable atmosphere. They know how to develop a child's character, give them confidence, show them discipline. They also help your child develop into academic achievers and teach them to set goals and achieve those goals. They teach them respect for other as well as themselves, they teach them how to create a stable work out routine so they can become healthy adults. That's just a few of the things they do. They have patience to work with any child and make them better. My son loves his Sensei and Sempai and so do I. Whoever is interested in having their kids or young adults learn REALLY life skills bring them here. They are the HARVARD of Martial Arts nothing compares to their knowledge, training and experience. I have been to many schools but my son only felt comfortable here. This is the place to be!
Training at US Kenpo Kai introduced me to the better me. I trained at this school for almost 7 years and can proudly say that I would not be where I am and Who I am today, if it weren't for this school and the excellent instructors there. Professional, ambitious, inspiring attitudes, and doses of encouragement boost every student and parent that walks through the doors. US Kenpo Kai guides its students to develop a positive attitude, a strong will, respect, determination, the ability to overcome adversity, and strengthens the esteem of every participant. This style taught me not only how to defend myself, and to become more aware, faster reflexes, faster thinking on my feet, but also taught me a way of life - a balance between destruction and healing...one of the healthiest mindsets I've ever encountered in a martial arts studio. Definitely the BEST dojo in Miami! _MG
