Our Mission

"Success is a journey, not a destination."

At Granite State American Kenpo Karate, our goal is to set students up for success and make them leaders of tomorrow. We do this by teaching life skills, character development, fitness and self-defense - all while having FUN.

Granite State is a family-friendly martial arts school with personal safety and achievement based learning at the core of our curriculum.

We specialize in American Kenpo Karate, kickboxing, and self-defense training and are excited to help you on your journey to learn these empowering skills. It’s also a journey of self-discovery and self-expression as you unleash the giant within you, no matter what age you are. It’s a positive place your WHOLE FAMILY will love!

We promote a safe and non-competitive environment where everyone is able to participate - regardless of age, shape, size, fitness level or anything else. EVERYONE is welcome here with open arms and a warm smile. You’ll see and feel that sense of belonging and togetherness the minute you walk through the doors.

We encourage families to spend quality time together, to laugh, play and learn. We do all that and so much more!  

Beginners & All Skill Levels Welcome! Our team is dedicated to teaching beginners that focuses on the basics of martial arts, proper body conditioning and techniques, your personal safety and most importantly, having FUN!

We want everyone to be able to relax and learn the basics with zero nervousness or pressure to compete. In fact, anyone who has a big ego or thinks they’re here to outdo everyone else can check that big ego at the door.  

If you’re a beginner, remember that everyone here was once in your shoes so we understand that you may be a little nervous or worried about fitting in or afraid that you may not be able to do it. You know what though? There’s nothing to worry about because we will always be encouraging and supportiveand cheering you on along the way. You’ll see tons of high fives and fist bumps here, for sure.

Karate, kickboxing and other martial arts are a great way for both kids and adults to be more aware of your body, mind and spirit, as you gain…
