Wesleyan Ryukyu Kempo Class

Wanna set that first foot down on the path to badassery? Well luckily for you, that’s what we specialize in at our twice weekly Ryukyu Kempo meetings. Think karate and then cooler. “Oh my god!” you’re probably squealing, “How can anything be cooler than karate?!” Well, we add in pressure points (if you’re good, we’ll teach you how to make someone poop themselves with just one finger), joint locks and breaks, and an instructor who’s not just tall and dark, but handsome as well! This class is great both if you’re a fighting noobie or an experienced martial artist. Additionally, Ryukyu Kempo emphasizes finesse over brawn, so ladies, you’ll finally get to learn how to take down a linebacker one on one without resorting to a swift kick to the balls (those are the two pressure points we don’t mess with in class).
