“Coppock's Kenpo Karate Academy is an outstanding school! The instructors are knowledgeable and do an excellent job creating an environment that encourages learning, while having fun.

I wanted a school that was less about posturing and more about sharing the art form and that's exactly what I found here.

It's great for the little ones, too. Their Lil Dragons class makes me smile every time I watch them. It's awesome to see the confidence it inspires in kids of all ages. ”

“The Best!”
“My family and I have been learning Kenpo Karate from Mr. Coppock for the last 12 years. Mr. Coppock truly understands the art of Kenpo Karate and clearly explains why you apply karate techniques a certain way, as it applies to your attacker and the environment.

My two daughters started off in the Kid's Karate program at the age of 4 and are now junior black belts. My oldest will be going off to college this year and I feel assured that she has the proper self-defense skills to protect herself while she is away from home.

My wife, who recently earned her black belt, has fun working out with the great community of martial artists here and looks forward to the two of us working out even more after our youngest daughter goes to college. This truly is the best studio in Colorado Springs! Try it out like we did, and you'll be glad you did.”

“Hands Down, The Best!”
“Mr. Coppock teaches the application of the art with the understanding of not only how to attack and defend, but what your defending against and why you're attacking, defining the reason for the move.

It's one thing to learn a technique to perfection, and when you execute it, it sure looks great. But it's another thing to understand the attack, and the defense and move with purpose.

If you want an education and a workout in Kenpo, check this school out. Hands down, it's the best I've ever seen!”

“"Woohoo... it's as good as it gets!" those were my thoughts after taking only a few classes. Mr. Coppock is an excellent teacher and fantastic martial artist. This studio was my home for many years as a student. If you're interested in learning from one of the best, then this is your place”

“Passion for Teaching!”
“The reason I joined Coppock's Kenpo Karate Academy is because the place I was at before had poor management, the instructors were overbooked and sometimes we had to go home with no training.

I spoke to some of the instructors at my old school and they all had great things to say about Mr. Coppock, as some of them had trained with him in the past. Their stories are great, and they know him for his accuracy, speed, perfect form, and passion for teaching”
“If you want to learn the art of Kenpo Karate, then go to this studio.  Mr. Coppock is a Master that you can respect and his knowledge and practical application are on the level of genius. All his students are extremely dedicated.

We do work hard but we also have a lot of fun. All the instructors who teach are extremely passionate about Kenpo and pass that on to their students. I've seen several young students grow up at this place. It is so inspiring to see the transformation from shy and unruly to strong, confident, and disciplined young Kenpoists.

There is a wonderful vibe at the studio and it really has been an exceptional experience. I would encourage anyone who is curious about learning a martial art to go to Coppock's Kenpo Karate Academy and learn from the best”

“Good Workout!”
“I've been a student of Mr. Coppock since 2005. His knowledge about Kenpo is second to none. I call him the mad scientist because if you ever catch him without a student, he's working on his own practice. I have seen him teach other high-ranking black belts from other studios and he has a good relationship with all of them.

Mr. Coppock has always been forthcoming with information and advice when needed and his studio has a great balance. It's comfortable enough for adults and kids just having fun and getting a good workout, but it's also functional enough for the upper belts to get some hardcore contact and instruction in Kenpo.

I always recommend this school to my friends and family”

“In Awe!”
“Professor Coppock is adept at teaching students of many ages, backgrounds, and learning types. I find myself in awe because one minute he can dissect and simplify techniques that I am struggling with and then the next minute challenge and enrich techniques that I thought I was comfortable with. He is adept at both teaching by action and by words and brings practicality to the art.

Being here feels like a second home because the instructors and community of martial artists are all friendly and supportive. The place is also clean and comfortable”
