All of the instructors here at Shaolin Kempo Academy have been hand picked by Master Antisdel and have his full faith and confidence.
We are a very family oriented facility, the family that kicks together sticks together. Our school has been here since 1984 when it opened on Main street as part of a chain of martial arts schools. In 1996 Master Ross took over as the Chief instructor and latter purchased the school. Since then SKA has undergone a metamorphosis from a chain karate school to a one of a kind Martial arts fitness facility.
