“For us, Kenpo is truly a Family affair. I take great pleasure in guiding all the Children in our Sunnybank Martial Arts School towards their goals. They are all well on their way to becoming strong, kind, respectful, knowledgeable and humble members of our community.”

This is a fantastic martial arts school run by internationally respected instructors with over 30 years of individual martial arts experience. Fun and supportive class environment. No egos. In fact, the emphasis is on helping each other to become better martial artists, better people and in making the world a better place! You will gain a whole lot of self-defence skills, but also fitness, confidence, discipline, resilience and amazing friendships. I have watched many kids (and adults), under the instruction of Don and Suzanne Woods, develop into incredible martial artists, excelling in all areas of their life. I cannot recommend this school more highly.

I highly recommend Kenpo 5.0 for all ages and skill levels. The classes are always exciting and everyone is so welcoming and supportive. It teaches the skills you need to defend yourself, whilst being a fun workout and a great way to meet new people. 5 stars from me!

The Woods family (the instructors) have been pivotal in teaching me not only martial arts but also life lessons. They gave me the opportunities to become who I am today and to represent them and their school internationally. The atmosphere they create is not only positive but one that values hard work. I am confident in my abilities to defend myself and also defuse delicate situations. I can not recommend them enough.

Both me and my two kids trained in this school for over 8 years. It is a great martial art school and Don & Suzanne are incredible & passionate Kenpo instructors that helped me to achieve my childhood dream of becoming a black belt.

I highly recommend this school! My son has developed so much confidence since he has started with Kenpo. Classes are so fun for the little kids, he looks forward to them each week. They also focus on discipline and respect which is even better than just self defence. The instructors and the whole school including students are just amazing! Such a safe, friendly and supportive environment. We don't even live in the area, but the drive there every week is certainly worth it! Totally worth checking them out!
