  • The Importance of Exercise in Children

    Children should have many chances to run, bike, and play sports during the day. Experts recommend that children get 60 minutes of moderate exercise every day. Moderate activity means you breathe harder and your heart beats faster than normal. Some examples are: • Walking fast • Playing chase or tag • Swimming • Playing organized sports (such as martial arts, soccer, basketball, and football) Younger children have a shorter attention span than older children. They may be active for only 10 - 15 minutes at a time. The goal is still a total of 60 minutes of activity every day. WHY EXERCISE?

  • Life Skills Training Builds Character

    Here at Texas Storm Kenpo, we use martial arts training as a platform to teach and enhance important life skills. We focus on 18 different life skills that every young person needs to learn in order to acquire the best chance at a successful start in life.

    Importance of Teaching Girls Self-Defense

    Self-defense is NOT just for boys Everyone deserves to learn how to defend themselves. Self-protection is needed by girls as well as boys.

  • New Training Tip

    Here is our Thursday Training Tip of the Week. Understanding how, when, and why do we Bow at Texas Storm Kenpo. Let me start by saying that if you do not have experience in martial arts it might be easy to misunderstand the purpose of a bow as used in our studio and this training tip will hopefully clear up and misunderstanding.

Simply stand with their feet together and arms at their side and lower their upper body slightly. Students are required to bow when entering or leaving the school (at the front door) and when the ....
