Ming Kempo Karate was developed in the Ming Dynasty-China (1368-1644), and its origin traces back to the year 520 BC. Ming Kempo Karate is an ancient Martial Art that is educational, simple to learn, direct, very effective, powerful and realistic. In the original Ming Kempo Karate we were taught to be free and spontaneous by using the basics and a limited number of powerful techniques and above all to be creative, from which we could borrow moves, to create our own techniques and become reactive and creative upon demand.

It's a concept that we agree with then and still do today. We have been modernizing Ming Kempo Karate to the needs of our society today, making it mean and lean again and utilizing our unique training drills, fear control, self discipline, and a winning and resolute mindset.

It is our intention to give the student a system (Black Belt) that is achievable in 14 to 16 months and perfected in 1 year, rather than a system that takes a couple of decades to learn and a lifetime to perfect. Above all we want to give the member the ability to control its own fears, create a winning mindset, spontaneity, ability to perform at all levels, expertise, reality, self discipline, confidence & creativity.

"Ten simple and powerful techniques well mastered, with fear control, and a winning and determined mindset will serve a martial-artist better than 100 techniques that are unrealistic, confusing, unworkable, ineffective, fancy and play-acting". That is a quote from our Chief Executive Instructor Roy Maia. One of many we've taken with us through the years.

Think about it, its meaning is quite clear. Don't fantasize and clutter your mind with repetitious, unrealistic, fancy and useless materialthat in a REAL WORLD works against you when you REALY need it the most. 

In times of dwindling confidence, escalating pressures, rapid change and violent crimes worldwide, traditional approaches to Self Defense, Fear Control, Confidence and Positive Mindset builder techniques... Are No Longer Adequate.

To make these powerful physical and mind transitions useful, you have to engage in learning long before you need it—it’s too late when you’re in the middle of a crisis or a dire situation.

Ming Kempo Karate is a self confidence builder a winner and resolve mindset creator. Ming Kempo Karate can make a difference in your life, and the way we face challenges today.

FEAR is the Catalytic of Non-Performance, and Must Be Controlled...

  • Fear is a necessary part of the systems nature has installed in us. If we were to wipe out fear from a person’s environment, we would be doing an injustice, for the trigger of Fear is often necessary to remove you from harm’s way, should danger arise. However, Illusory Fear, Illogical Fear, Fear in which the fight-or-flight response is not required can only hamper one’s growth.
  •   Fears are an involuntary behaviour. A person, who is fearful of flying, knows, on an intellectual level, that flying is safer than taking a bath, and much safer than driving, but Fear has nothing to do with Fact. Some event in the past had set the negative execration (curse) whenever that event is forthcoming.
  • The Fear sits waiting along the nerve pathways of the brain. When a like event comes along, the pathways fire off and one of the Three Faces of Fear comes about—Anxiety, Embarrassment, or Panic.
To eliminate a specific Fear, it simply requires another force to travel along the common nerve pathway that had been established by the Fear. We have a simple method of accomplishing this. As Fear is a state of the imagination, you must use the “APR” System to Control It.
