Kenpo Karate/Jiu Jitsu

Kenpo Karate is a martial art style that focuses on all angles and ranges of fighting from the self-defense perspective. Kenpo teaches the science of body mechanics through universal concepts and principles of applied motion. Poway Kenpo Karate was founded in 1984 by Barry Barker who is still the Chief Instructor today with over 40 years in the martial arts and currently an 8th Degree Black Belt along with a Master's Degree in Chinese Medicine and a Licensed Acupuncturist (L.Ac.). He has produced 15 videos and written 3 books Mind-Body-Spirit: As Seen Through Martial Arts. Mr. Barker has two Black Belt sons who also teach at the facility, 4th Degree Black Belt Joshua Lara-Barker and 3rd Degree Black Belt Jordan Barker. In addition, all of the instructors at Poway Kenpo have been trained in house, most since they were small children, so the instruction is consistent and at a very high level. This family owned facility is very welcoming and a friendly environment where respect is given to all.

"Thank you for the impact of your training & lessons on my life. Through your instruction, I learned to control not just my body, but my emotions, my fears and my mind. With your help, I learned something much more powerful then discipline, I learned self-discipline. Since spending those early years in your classes, I have never been afraid of another human being in my life and I have made a difference in other people's lives." Brook

"Poway Kenpo Karate was the best thing we ever did for our son. He was only 5 when we started and he has advanced to blue belt (son Ian is now a Black Belt) with lots of practice and awesome teaching. The facility, the teaching programs, and the level of teaching are spectacular. You can tell the Barkers care about each and every student - we are proud to be a part of the Poway Kenpo Karate family." Bryan and Sandy Bloom
