Hi, I’m Douglas DeBarger.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2008 I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Westport by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

I want to change the way parents and students think about Martial arts.  Kempo Evolution offers an excellent physical training and self-defense curriculum, but that is only the beginning. We will teach you how to get past your fears and any stressful situations you may encounter, and build a foundation of self-confidence that will bring success to every aspect of your life.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programs have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programs at Kempo Evolution are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

What Makes Kempo Evolution Different From Other
Karate Schools?

I have developed Kempo Evolution to honor the history and traditions that I have learned from Shaolin KempoI, adding new teachings and traditions to the Kempo Evolution system, that I believe enhance the system and make it more relevant in today’s social environment

My excellent staff teach and believe and in this Kempo system. They participated with me in the Evolution Process, knowing the they will help create better leaders and better athletes.  All of our students become more confident and successful in every aspect of their lives.

We are here to learn what each student needs from us to grow as an individual and a member of a team. The Kempo Evolution Community. Under our leadership this community learns to champion and help each other become our personal best every day.

WHAT IS KEMPO KARATE?

Kempo Karate is the style of martial arts practiced by Kempo Evolution students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: STUDENTS & PARENTS LOVE MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!

From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!

One more reason you will love martial arts at Kempo Evolution!
