Wo' Zhu' Ken Ryu  Kenpo Karate


Roughly translated means wrestling karate.  At WMA we teach a traditional Kenpo style with part of the training dedicated to ground fighting.   With the advent of MMA we feel that it is important to know not only how to defend yourself while standing but also how to defend yourself on the ground.  Our ciriculum is divided into two parts.  Roughly 70 % is dedicated to traditional Kenpo, including forms, self defense techniques and the use of and defense of traditional weapons.  The remaining 30% is dedicated to ju-jitsu and wrestling techniques used for ground fighting.  This is a traditional class, uniforms are worn and the curriculum is taught in the traditional manner.

Self Defense For Women

This class in designed especially for women.  We have taught numerous seminars strictly for women.  Most recently WMA was one of the main teachers/coordinators for the Paxton Police Department's self defense for women classes held in Paxton MA.


The 2 hour class is taught over one seminar and focusses on the basics of awareness, self defense and women's safety


The 4 hour class 

covers the same material as the 2 hour class, however, there is more time to focus on striking drills and self defense drills

This class is taught over the course of 2 seminars.


The 6 hour class is taught over three seminars.  It gives more time to practice the drills learned.  In this class we are able to review the materials more in depth and role playing scenarios are incorporated.

​​Class Times

Due to Covid 19 some of the classes have been shortened to 45 minutes.  Also, instead of offering three classes a week the classes will be cut to 2x per week.  This was done to keep the smallest amount of people from coming and going at one time.  It also allows us ample time to clean and disinfect between each class.

There is enough time in our schedule to accommodate students students who are training for a fight or a tournament to schedule in extra training time
