Karate - Kung Fu - Martial Arts

Our Values

Honor and Integrity


Welcome to the premier martial arts experience.

Before you get started, take a moment to consider the most valuable aspect of being a martial arts student. Is it learning self defense through karate and kung fu? Gaining confidence and discipline through structured martial arts classes lead by supportive and encouraging karate instructors? Maybe being more physically fit and forming healthy habits?

To us, the answer is community. A place where all these benefits are generated organically. A place where every student is welcome and accepted for who they are as an individual. 

When searching for an exceptional teacher and mentor for your child, you want someone that will go above and beyond for your family, just like you do, every day. A karate instructor that will take the time to answer your questions and modify their teaching based on your progress as a martial artist, and the goals put forth by parents. A karate school where the instructors think about the best way to help you, even after you've bowed off the mats and gone home from class. A teacher who maintains a zealous attention to detail, enabling them to provide a superior martial arts and educational experience to your child.

This is the standard of Kempo Academy of Darien.

This is our commitment to the success of our students.

This is what makes us different.
