about this business

Shaolin Kempo Karate is a system of self defense combining the three arts of Shaolin Kung Fu, Karate, and Jiu Jitsu. This combination has literally been labeled by some as, the most effective martial art today. Below is a breakdown of what each system has to offer in terms of martial ability, body and spiritual development.Karate known as the "art of empty hand", karate teaches a student how use strong kicks and punches to defend yourself,  it also builds strength in the body and mind.

Shaolin Kung Fu using more hand techniques than feet uses the fighting characteristics of the animals the tiger, snake, crane, leopard and dragon to develop the internal strength of the body and improve circulation, flexibility, power, speed, coordination and balance.

Jiu Jitsu known as "the gentle art" uses joint lock and pressure point manipulation to stop and control an attack without having to punch or kick, although the option is there if needed.


Located 8 miles South of Louisville, KY just off of Insterstate 65 at Exit 117 in Shepherdsville, KY at 264 Hester Street next to Shepherdsville Square Shopping Center.
