I have had the pleasure of knowing and training with Sifu Rob over the last few years. In that time, he has proven that he is dedicated to his art and is determined to pass it on so that the next generation can prosper. I recently had the privilege of going and watching one of his "Dragonfly" kids classes and it is one of the best I've seen in almost two decades of training. I highly recommend his school to any and all that would take that step to better themselves.

Honestly, this is the real deal. I appreciate the professionalism, investment, and encouragement I’ve received from Sifu Rob. I am confident that as I progress, I will actually instill self-defense into myself, and in my life. It will come naturally with real practice! Sifu Rob hasn’t just gone through the motions. He actually makes sure I understand everything he’s teaching me, and shows me how useful it will be. There are no free passes here. You will always know for sure that you earned the belt you’re given. If you’d like to learn a martial art in a place where you will be invested in, encouraged to reach your potential, and where you can be sure you’ll be getting legitimate training, I’d highly recommend Bill Gregory’s Kajukenpo.

Sifou Rob is a great teacher. He is very patient with the young students in his classes. He does a great job keeping them interested in class and always eager to learn more.
Miss Natasha and Si-Hing Hannah have also been great with the students, making sure if anyone needs help that they are right there.

Your New Family Activity: Martial Arts

April 2nd is Family Day, and it’s the ideal time to talk about how to find family activities. If you have kids of different ages, then you know how challenging it can be to find things to do as a group. What excites your 10-year-old daughter is likely to bore your 7-year-old son – and vice versa. There’s one exception that we know of – and that’s taking martial arts classes! Studying the martial arts is fun for people of all ages. It’s a great way to learn something new, get in shape, and discover common ground with the people who matter most to you. Here are some of the best reasons to study martial arts as a family.

#1: Making Exercise a Priority is Good for Everyone

People with kids sometimes struggle to make time in their busy schedules for exercise. And, a lot of kids would be content to spend their days sitting in front of a video game or television. The solution? Signing the whole family up to study martial arts! As parents, you’ll be setting a good example by practicing what you preach about exercise. Kids will have a chance to burn off some of the excess energy they have, and the whole family can improve their health by getting regular workouts.

#2: Finding Common Ground Will Bring You Closer

When you do things together as a family, you build strong bonds that bring you closer. Even though you and your kids will be in separate classes, we think martial arts still qualifies as a group activity because you’ll all be pursuing similar goals. In your free time, you’ll be able to talk about what you’ve learned. You may decide to practice together as a family – and you can attend competitions or go see the latest martial arts movie together. These things can all help you find common ground with one another.

#3: Learning the Five Tenets Improves Interpersonal Relationships

The five tenets of martial arts are the core of what you’ll learn in class – and they go far beyond the physical movements you’ll be working to master. In fact, practicing self-control, courtesy, and persistence will help you in every area of your life. Families who study martial arts together find that their ability to focus on what’s important improves as a result. You’ll all learn to be aware of each other’s needs and to respect one another. Those are important lessons for kids, siblings, and parents.

#4: Studying Martial Arts is Fun

Anything you’re going to do as a family should be fun – and martial arts classes are! A good martial arts class is a social event combined with a great workout. You’ll get a boost of feelgood hormones after class and the whole family will be smiling. Kids who might balk at doing a “boring” family activity will look forward to learning how to execute perfects kicks and punches or break a board with their fist. You won’t have to worry about whether the whole family will enjoy studying martial arts – they will!
