40th Anniversary

Chamberlain Studios of Self Defense is in our 40th year of providing martial arts education for children and adults. Under the instruction of Grandmaster Chamberlain, our system features modern techniques combined with traditional training methods.


Join us for an introductory class – in person or online!

Kids Kenpo Karate

Karate is a great recreational activity; it provides good exercise and self-discipline, builds confidence, and establishes achievable goals. Our Kids Karate classes incorporate the 3-Steps to a Great Kid™ character development program.

The emphasis of the program is respect; respecting the instructors, the school, and fellow students.

The self-defense skills we teach are applicable in the real world, not just tournaments, and will give your children both confidence and practical tools to use throughout their lives.

Adult Kenpo Karate

The primary style of martial arts taught at Chamberlain Studios of Self-Defense™ is Gasan Ryu™ Kenpo.  Gasan Ryu (Moon-Mountain Style) is an offshoot of the Hawaiian system of Kajukenbo and Nick Cerio’s Kenpo. It was developed by Grand Master Nick Chamberlain after 25 years of training with some of the world’s best martial arts instructors.

Gasan Ryu is a practical, efficient, and easy to learn system that incorporates the kicking and punching of Karate, the throws, locks and mat-work of Judo and Jiu-Jitsu, the explosive striking power of Kenpo, and the hand techniques of western boxing.
