Kenpo Self Defense for Groups
Kenpo Self Defense For Groups in San Jose, CA
Many people think that self-defense classes are meant to teach you how to fight, but that's only in the worst case scenario. In reality, self defense actually means doing everything in your power to avoid getting into a fight.
That's where we come in.
Although combat technique is an important part of our self-defense courses, we also teach a wide array of skills that can help you steer clear of a fight in the first place. For example, verbal de-escalation can be a very effective technique in fending off a would-be attacker.
But the most important thing you can take away from our classes is the self-confidence that comes from training in realistic scenarios. Our classes are taught in an extremely supportive environment and training is tailored to help each individual be prepared to encounter an actual assault.
Regardless of your size, speed or athletic skills, we can provide you with training on how to:
- Avoid being a target
- Assess your surroundings
- React to a confrontation
- Conduct yourself in a crisis
- Anticipate your attacker's next move
- Breaking an attacker's grasp
- How, when, and where to strike if assaulted
This course is designed to prepare you for an assault, but it also gives you the tools you need to avoid the fight altogether. So whether you want to learn how to fight, or more importantly, how to avoid fighting, we can help.

Fun, Fabulous, and Effective!
We have four family members learning self-defense at San Jose's Flaherty Kenpo Karate studio. The studio, run by Professor Cantrelle, is a well-established, diverse, family environment where individuals of all ages can learn effectively how to defend themselves in a fun and effective way. Having been attending Flaherty's Kenpo Karate for over 2 years, I have built confidence, strength, alertness, and long-lasting connections. I highly recommend Flaherty Kenpo Karate!!
Best Choice for Extra Curricular
I have been bringing my daughter to FKKA #1 since the summer of 2012 and I am so happy we gave it a try! Since bringing her here she has improved her self confidence, balance, strength, and overall fitness. She started out shy and sensitive and has since blossomed with the friendly, kind, and supportive guidance of Professor Cantrelle, Mrs Cantrelle, Mr Santos, Mr & Mrs Aubert, and the rest of the instructors. This is not a huge showy facility with contracts and lots of gimmicks. The focus is on the students not a flashy image, and I like it that way. We are counting down the days until my younger daughter is old enough to start classes. :)
Professional and friendly
My daughter go to Flaherty's kenbo Karate almost 2 years. She's very happy and enjoy it.
I think every instructor has something unique to offer, so it's well worth it to try to get to classes taught by each. Mrs. Cantrell gives lots of personal attention, especially when you're first starting and need the extra help. Mr. Aubert does fantastic ab workouts and has a different twist on teaching the techniques and forms that can be very helpful. And, of course, Professor Cantrell is a master of motivation. The only thing I can think of that would improve the experience is a water cooler for when I forget my water bottle :).
I've been here for a year and a half, and all the instructors are helpful and friendly. It's family friendly, and you work at your own pace. There is always a positive atmosphere, and everyone helps each other out. I made a lot of friends here, we are all like family. Even with my injury, my instructor helps me with all my material, and makes sure that I don't re-injure myself in the process.
Definitely worth the time!
The instructors there are very skilled and kind. Their method of teaching is one of respect and discipline, but in a way that is encouraging. Mr. Cantrelle is very knowledgeable and easy to talk too. My nephew (5 yrs old) goes there and absolutely loves it! I recommend Flaherty's Kenpo Karate to anyone of any age who wants to learn real self defense!
Professional and super friendly
I am very pleased with Flaherty's Kenpo. Professor and Mrs. Cantrelle are wonderful with the children. They are kind and courteous to all.
