Kenpo Kobudo-Karate

Leading Adult RI Karate since 1982

Kenpo in RI has been the go to martial art for years.  Birthed from Founding Fathers such as James Mitose and Ed Parker, Kenpo has had  a foothold on the East Coast and pioneered and further developed by individuals such as George Pesare, Peter Gregrory, and Nick Cerio.  Other masters of the arts further developed the systems to make them more well-rounded and complete.  

Our system of Kenpo gets its roots from the masters named above, and adapted and modernized by Eugene Coutu.

Eugene has a system of Kenpo unlike others and is heavily devoted to self-defense that works.  Through fighting, sparring, blocking/striking, and kata; a practioner will get the skillset needed to be successful when it counts.
