WHAT IS ARNIS?

A Traditional Martial Art From the Philippines

Known as Arnis, Escrima/Eskrima, or Kali, the Filipino Martial Arts are most famous for using tools - especially rattan sticks - in training. We believe that our students should be able to use anything in our environment in self defense.

Our safety-first approach allows our students to comfortably and confidently defend themselves in any situation.

A version of what we teach is included in physical fitness programs in elementary schools in the Philippines. 

Students learn Presas Arnis, a blend of two FMA styles, Modern Arnis and Kombatan, in our Family/Kids class or in our Teens/Adults class.

DOUSHIN KARATE

A Traditional Martial Art for Ages 4 and up

Karate instruction is proven to help with grades, focus, and other sports.

Our Doushin Karate system combines three fundamental Japanese styles - Shotokan Karate, Kyokushin Karate and Jujutsu - into a blended whole that emphasizes respect, courtesy, discipline, and self-defense.

FORCE NECESSARY

Force Necessary is a collective term for a series of practical courses based around the use of hand, stick, knife, and gun in self defense scenarios.

It's all of the great advice and tools you get in martial arts training, stripped down to easy-to-learn essentials.

Our Force Necessary coursework is ideal for security, law enforcement, military as well as self-defense savvy people from all walks of life.  We offer a Force Necessary class, which covers a variety of ranges and topics both armed and empty handed, as well as Pacific Archipelago Concepts, which focuses more on the use of sticks/knives.

ABOUT KINDRED PROTECTIVE ARTS

The word "kindred" is another term for the word "family".  That's how we think of our students and our school.

Training with KPA means you train in a safe, inclusive environment with people committed to helping each student achieve their goals.

You belong at KPA.
