ultimate summer camp.
About Martial Art Camp
Our Summer Camp helps kids age 6 – 14 years old get healthier with a combination of martial arts, fitness and personal development training. The structured drills help the youngsters overcome shyness and timidity. They become more confident and assertive as they learn to move and control their bodies. Self-confidence and self-esteem grow.
Summer Camp also helps youngsters develop a sense of integrity about their bodies. Balance, coordination, posture, and general movements improve. Our Camp also offers an additional bonus that other sports do not provide. It teaches self-defense. In the unsettling times in which we live, knowledge of how to protect oneself can be
crucial. Parents feel more secure knowing their sons or daughters are capable of defending themselves.
Kids will enjoy some intensive training working on physical fitness, flexibility, coordination, footwork and timing for traditional techniques called forms as well as sparring techniques. They will also learn some Yoga fundamentals as it
relates to the martial arts techniques, meditation, and stretching.

Pallen’s Martial Arts began in Oakland, CA in 1968. As we celebrate over 50 years of martial arts excellence, we look back and see a karate school which started with traditional Kenpo, and has expanded to the full family fitness center and heritage after school program that it is today.
In the 70’s, we expanded to Kajukenbo which incorporates traditional karate, judo, kenpo and Chinese boxing (kung fu). Kajukenbo is a balanced martial art using both hand and foot techniques, mat work (including throws, rolls, and falls), traditional forms, as well as the art of self-defense through punching attack and grab art defenses.
In the 80’s, we added the Philippine Martial Art in our curriculum; which the Pallen’s are one of the first martial arts schools to practice in the United States. In the the 90’s, Tae Kwon Do was incorporated within our system, which enhanced our flexibility and usage of our legs.
We expand our style continuously, molding the martial arts in our own unique way. Pallen’s has provided championship fighters and martial arts excellence for decades, and we don’t intend to stop. As a community we continue to strive together and thrive together.
