Welcome to the Belfast Kenpo Karate Academy. We are proud to be the first Kenpo school in Northern Ireland under the direct instruction of Prof. Ed Downey 8th Degree Black Belt.

We study Ed Parker's American Kenpo Karate. One of the most effective self defense systems in the world. Well known for it's quick strikes and principles of motion, the Kenpo syllabus teaches students to build up techniques from the simple up to the more complicated.

We train in a fully matted and equipped dojo and promote safe training in a fun environment. New students are always welcome at our club. Give yourself more confidence, increase your fitness and push yourself to always improve.

Please feel free to browse the site which is constantly being updated. Check out the Syllabus and the links to other Kenpo resources. If there is anything you would like to see on the site, please contact us.

"It is not the aim of Kenpo to merely produce a skilful as well as powerful practitioner, but to create a well integrated student respectful of all."
(From the Zen of Kenpo by Grand Master Ed Parker 1931-1990).
