Welcome to
Coppock’s Kenpo Karate Academy

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is David Coppock.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at Coppock’s Kenpo Karate Academy is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire kids to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, I would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, I will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus, and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defense skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Self-Defense From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Empowering Life Skills Like Focus, Respect & Discipline.

Martial arts has been around for thousands of years and it's one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need to be leaders in life.

With every mat chat, inspiring story and positive reinforcement they get in our classes, kids develop amazing traits like:

Focus, confidence, respect, discipline and goal setting.

While your child may never have to use their self-defense skills in a real-life situation, I guarantee they'll use all the character development skills they learn EVERY day.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialize, make friends, get support, and have a blast.

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.

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
