Our Exeter Martial Arts Programmes
As well as teaching street self defence, our martial arts programmes are great for building self confidence, improving concentration, aiding with mental and physical fitness, plus it's also great fun, whatever your age.
Martial Arts for Children
In our children’s programme alongside the self defence we teach our younger members how to concentrate on their own development and how to confidently interact with others.
We do this in a variety of ways to make learning a fun and an enjoyable activity for all regardless of their age. The minimum age for our children’s class is five years old.
We run a sticker book, reward and achievement system. Upon joining, each of our academy members receives a martial arts record book, which records their achievements and progress. They are a great record of achievement, plus an excellent gauge of each child’s progress for the child, the instructor and for the parents.
Martial Arts for Adults
Our adult programme is designed to suit anyone regardless of age or physical ability. Our art is based on practical street self-defence techniques.
The techniques start from a basic level & progress via the belt ranking system, to our advanced black belt techniques. Kenpo does not take years to master. We can teach you instant self-defence awareness and defence from your very first lesson.
We train in a relaxed atmosphere usually in small groups or with a partner of a similar level, overseen by a black belt instructor.
Kenpo Belt Ranking System
Progress is marked by our belt ranking system. As you learn more you are regularly tested and as you pass each test you receive a new belt or block to show your new level.
Order of belts.
White - Yellow - Orange - Purple - Blue - Green
3rd Brown - 2nd Brown - 1st Brown - 1st Degree Black Belt
Our academy is honoured to have NINE black belt instructors to aid in the teaching and instructing of all our students.
Our son has learned a lot, not least the value of persistence and the satisfaction of good solid progress in learning new skills. He has enjoyed the company of the other students, and the atmosphere of the sessions has helped him combine fun with serious work. The teachers are highly skilled at what they do; unfailingly patient, kind, enthusiastic and committed, based on everything I have seen over the years. It is a real pleasure to see so many kids growing up with this club and I recommend it very highly to any parent. Regards, Andrew B.
Nikolas and Yasmin love their lessons. The children learn and progress in a nice and relaxed atmosphere. Good number of friendly and highly qualified instructors who focus brilliantly on the children's different levels and abilities. Lovely communication and interaction with the children. I would highly recommend it! We tried other groups. This is the best by far!
