My name is Donald Roe, while living in Victoria I decided to study the martial arts, I knew about all the mainstream systems (judo, taekwondo, ninjitsui) at the time I was only interested in learning on a private lesson level and all the schools were only group oriented atmosphere. This was not appealing to me, and then I came across an ad for a dojo that specialized in private instruction teaching Kenpo karate. I knew nothing of this art, but I thought I would give them a try, little did I know that I would spend the next 22 years studying Kenpo.
Kenpo is a combination of ancient fighting techniques and modern scientific principals an unending flow of motion that can overwhelm any attacker. Kenpo is a practical martial art, every move creates a specific reaction in your opponent, each reaction leads you to your next move, every strike is a block and every block is a strike. Each move flows into the next this logical and sequential flow of action is the essence of Kenpo. I began my training in 1993 and by 1996 I became a certified instructor, then in 1999 I received my 1st degree black belt (Shodan) and with some encouragement I moved to Comox to open my own private school teaching Kenpo professionally.
