American Kenpo is a martial art based on logic & practicality utilizing a rapid succession of strikes in a logical sequential order gaining the maximum effect with minimum effort.

Here at Sher Khan Karate, rank is earned, not given. Through hard work, dedication, and a “never give up” attitude, students will achieve their goals.
