Self-Defense for Kids and Adults

   The art of Shaolin Kempo Karate developed from a combination of Shaolin Temple boxing, jujitsu, kung fu, kempo, different styles of karate, as well as the secret art of the White Tiger (Chin Na). This martial arts system incorporates the movements of the original five animals: tiger, leopard, dragon, crane, and snake. It is based upon effective multiple strikes off a powerful mobile base with linear, angular, and circular offensive and defensive motions and simultaneous manipulation of the opponent's upper and lower body masses. Master Kadir Kadri of Shaolin Self Defense in Seaford has been training in the art of Shaolin Kempo Karate since 1992 and holds the rank of 5th degree black belt.

   Classes at the center are divided into age ranges: Pee Wees 4-7, Juniors 7-12, Teens 12-16, and Adults 16 and over.
