Wishing you a great day,
Learning Tracy's Kenpo Karate can help you be safer and stronger. My students receive private instruction. You can set your own time and progress at your own rate. Some students like to learn with a friend or family. Most private lessons are 30 minutes long. Here is a picture of a student learning a self defense move called "Knee Of Vengeance". It is a defense against an attacker that is grabbing someone from the front. Students will learn the basics. Having a strong foundation of the basics is major key to success. How do you start? I offer an introductory
course of four - 30 minute private lessons. I feel fantastic when I do Tracy's Karate. One of the advantages is that we can always have our training with us. The training helps us be more aware of the situations we will find ourselves in. We never know when we may find ourselves in a dangerous situation. My goal is to meet my students where they are and then help them learn the art of Tracy's Kenpo Karate. It takes time and effort to learn. It has been very rewarding for me to see the positive difference it can make in my students lives. My beautiful studio in located in South Tampa.
