The Martial Art we teach at Firenze Kenpo Karate is based upon Ed Parker's American Kenpo Karate.  A primary focus of ours from the very beginning is that Advanced Kenpo Karate is for defensive purposes only. Maybe more important than self defense, we see karate as a way to teach and promote self discipline, respect, confidence, situational awareness and creativity in our students. We hope our students will never have to use the physical skills they learn in our classes to defend themselves and in fact, most never do. We expect that the mental skills they learn will be used on a daily basis in every aspect of their lives. 

Our school is a proud member of the European Kenpo Karate Association lead by Professor Eddie Downey. The mission of the Association is to promote Kenpo Karate throughout the continent of Europe.
