At Rise we focus on two styles of martial arts, Kenpo Karate and Krav Maga. 


Kenpo Karate is a combat system that uses quick, powerful strikes and kicks. Kenpo Karate develops environmental awareness, body control, balance, coordination, speed, power and timing.

In addition Kenpo Karate employs the use of katas, a kata is a prearranged routine of techniques. Katas not only reinforce the basic techniques, but also encourage focus, and discipline.  Our Katas include: 

Short One

Long One

Short Two

Short Three


Krav Maga is self-defense. Originally designed as a military self-defense and fighting system for the Israel Defense Forces, Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extreme efficiency. 

Krav Maga uses simple and easily repeatable strikes. Students learn to defend against a variety of attacks and are taught to counter in the quickest and most efficient way. Krav Maga is practical and intuitive for people of any age, shape, or size.  Our Students learn how to defend themselves against:

Wrist grabs

Lapel grabs

Front and Back Chokes

Front and Back Bear Hugs


Full Nelsons and more.

While we are a martial arts school, other skills are continually being developed by our students, such as discipline, coordination, self awareness, fitness, goal setting and achieving, self-confidence, respect and team building.

We stand by our mantra: 

Rise Martial Arts: Improving Lives Everyday.
