The difference is in the training!
At Self Defense Studio we teach the Tracy Certified System of Kenpo Karate. Tracy’s Karate is not a sport, it is original, traditional martial arts training that will help you prepare today for what might happen tomorrow. At Self Defense Studio you will learn self-defense from certified instructors who have hundreds of thousands of training and teaching hours.
We have a wide range of students from different age groups and welcome men, women and children and have special family rates so the entire family can learn at the same time!
Our goal is to equip you with the training, confidence and knowledge that you need should you ever have to defense yourself, and hopefully help you get fit and have fun at the same time. You won’t find couches and cartoons in our waiting area because your time is valuable and our focus is on your training and providing you with efficient, thorough teaching.
We also do not have any sales gimmicks. We are not selling you a used car, we are providing you with training that requires expertise, time and commitment. Your life may come to depend upon the training you receive, and we back up our training with certifications, legitimately earned rank and many, many years of experience. We consider you a student, not a customer!

The importance of certified instructors
The instructors at Self Defense Studio are certified by Great Grand Master Al Tracy as official Kenpo Karate instructors.
Senior instructors Greg Mattson and Becky Mornar were trained by Al Tracy himself and to this day continue to be mentored by him so they can pass down the true art of Tracy’s Kenpo to their students.
Anyone can take a few martial arts lessons, put on a black belt, and start a studio. At Self Defense Studio, all the belt ranks are legitimate and earned through years of hard work and training.
