Our Purpose

To build confidence and develop great leadership skills in the youth and adults of our communities, through the learning of martial arts.

At MSD Kenpo Karate, we believe in the power of positive reinforcement. We help our students grow their confidence, build discipline, and become the best they can be. Traditional Kenpo Karate training isn’t just about punches and kicks — it’s about striving to be better. Enroll for your first class and see for yourself why parents around Tonawanda and Amherst are choosing our dojo to help their kids perform better in school, learn respect, and practice lasting leadership skills!

But Karate isn’t just for kids! We’ve also helped adults from across our community develop more robust fitness, learn practical self-defense, and feel revitalized. Our classes offer a great workout, professional instructors, and a passionate community. It’s never too late to get started.

See What Our Students Are Saying!

My son had previous martial arts experience. MSD Kenpo is a major upgrade in his training. The school teaches the Ed Parker system which is a complete system recognized worldwide. Students gain confidence, physical fitness, respect and a skill set for life. My son feels great at MSD working toward a black belt. Regardless if you are a beginner or experienced, MSD will take you where you are and make you better. An amazing school with a great atmosphere!

I have been a member of the adult class for over 2 years now, I absolutely love it. I love learning Kenpo, it has made me much more confident in my every day life. I love my instructor Rob, he is very patient, organized, he explains things well, he is very good at what he does, and he has a true passion for Kenpo. I love everyone in my class, I enjoy working with them very much. If I am in a bad mood that day, I definitely leave class in a better one, always. I recommend MSD Kenpo Karate to everyone.

My son is a very nervous child and has a difficult time focusing. I brought him to MSD Kenpo for a trial class thinking he may not respond well to it. But the way he responded to Rob and the way Rob dealt with the children i was sold. We’re only a few weeks in and my son is showing improvement already!

We Are A Black Belt School

Confidence & Self-Esteem

Confidence is the most vital part of a martial arts training regimen. As such, our school is dedicated to providing our students with the self-belief needed to accomplish any goal.

Discipline & Self-Control

Discipline sits as the cornerstone not only of martial arts, but of life achievement as a whole. Our easy-to-follow programs will instill our students with discipline and internal motivation that will improve all aspects of their lives.


Martial arts, while also a way to achieve fulfillment and self-esteem, are also a great tool for use in physical defense. Safety is a constant worry in life, and our school will arm students with a variety of ways to keep themselves and their loved ones out of harm’s way.

New Friends & Mentors

Our school is not just a service, it is a family. Any new students welcomed into our fold will be treated as personal friends and are sure to make connections that will last a lifetime.
