If you want a school that will put you first and profits last, with every teacher a black belt and a system that is used in over 45 schools in 25 countries, then we are the school for you!
What Makes Our School Unique?
Of course you will increase your fitness, defend yourself and your family and learn something brand new. Yet unlike other schools, you can be guaranteed to receive exceptional training in the world’s most dynamic and practical martial arts system - Kenpo 5.0.
American Actor And Martial Artist Jeff Speakman is a World Leader in Cutting Edge Self Defence...
... and we are part of the renowned Jeff Speakman's Kenpo 5.0 schools worldwide!
The Kenpo 5.0 advantage is the array of different yet practical strikes and techniques available. Should you ever be caught up in a real-life threat to your safety and one technique fails, you will have the option of many more to ensure that one will hit allowing you time to control or flee.
More than just kicking and throwing punches; you WILL achieve your goals.
Kenpo 5.0 is great for:
Starting Later is Better Than Starting Never
You are never too old, too broken, too unfit, too big or too small to start. Taking that first step can be daunting and even if you’ve done some form of martial arts in the past, it’s still nerve-wracking trying something new.
Come visit us where you will be walked through our basic techniques and fundamental moves. You can see a demonstration of the syllabus and gain a thorough understanding of what you can expect from our school.
Throughout your martial arts journey you will gain Karate, Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and weapons skills, practical self defence and so much more. All our Kenpo 5.0 classes for adults are taught by the Church family who each hold a black belt in Kenpo 5.0, high ranks in Shaolin Kenpo and Tai Chi.
With Head Instructor Chris Church also being a qualified Massage Therapist, you know you will be in safe hands.

Our juniors will also get the opportunity to train overseas at any of the 45 Jeff Speakman schools throughout 25 countries AND compete with students in Kenpo tournaments across the country, in Australia, USA and Europe.
You will see a change in your kids almost immediately. Not only will they have fun at every session, they will also be more focussed, respectful and determined which effortlessly translates from the dojo to the school and home.
These are skills that will see your child through anything that life has to throw at them and you can be assured knowing they are equipped to be strong in mind, body and spirit.
I joined the club to do something alongside my daughter who is 8 years old. Despite it being challenging at times, I have found it really empowering as a female. I am much more confident in myself both physically and mentally. The instructors are great – always patient, clear and supportive.
My kids have been training at Auckland Kenpo 5.0 since they were 5 years old. They both love the friends they have made and the family trips we take to compete at tournaments. I have had the pleasure of watching my kids grow leadership skills and the comfort of knowing they have the confidence to defend themselves in a world that doesn’t always share the Kenpo values of strength, wisdom and kindness.
