The Nackord Kenpo Karate System - teaching children since 1969

What is the one question parents hesitate to ask?
"Will my child have the discipline, confidence, and self-esteem to succeed in life?"
The answer...
"As thousands of parents have found out, the answer is a resounding - YES!"

Dear Parent,

I don't blame you for thinking, "How can karate teach values?" but YES, we have taught karate to kids for over four decades and have nurtured them with character building tools found only in karate, and uniquely found at the Nackord Kenpo Karate System.

My name is Dennis Nackord and I have been teaching children karate for over 40 years and have developed some unique teaching tools and value building ideas. In the next few paragraphs, I will tell you how you and your child can find this out, and more.

Watch as your child increases in confidence, energy, and spirit.  Feel the joy as your child achieves greater academic standards, unshakable self-respect, and increased strength and fitness in both body and mind. Moreover, all this comes while learning the kicks, blocks, and punches of the Nackord Kenpo Karate System. BBT0101_15.JPG (73808 bytes)

A Little Story

A few years ago, one of my 11 year old brown belt students (brown belt is attained in about 3 years) named Alan was sitting on a railing about 15 feet off the ground at his local elementary school. A boy came up and pushed him backwards over the railing. Alan had the reflexes to be able to turn his body and raise his arm in an upward block position, which protected his head. He severely broke his arm. 

His father came to see me two months later. In a very emotional way he thanked me for teaching his son karate and said, "Without a doubt, I believe Alan would have been hurt much worse had he not had his karate training." Alan did go on to earn his Junior Black Belt.

The truth is, though, your child's biggest challenge does not come from the "neighborhood bully"; it comes instead from battling his or her own fears and self-doubts.

  • "I'm not as smart as Billy"

  • "I can't do it (anything new)"

  • "I wish I was as (strong, pretty, tall) as Heather"

  • "I don't think I'm very popular"

  • "I wish people wouldn't pick on me"

The question is, how do you get your child to fight and overcome these fears, to fight them when it's hard for your child to even tell you about them?

The answer is, a program, time tested over years, that has worked for thousands of children. It's a series of lessons your child can learn more easily than you think. It's a program that will build discipline, confidence, and self-esteem.  Click here for SPECIAL Easy Trial Lessons.

When your child uses the discipline of karate to overcome his or her fears, confidence is built to transfer that discipline to other areas of life.

Another Little Story

One day the mother of one of my 7-year-old students told me her son, Johnny, had gotten up in front of his 2nd grade class and done a small karate demonstration with the help of one of his fellow students. She seemed elated at the event, and although I thought it was wonderful he had done the demo, it did not seem so unusual to me. She must have read this on my face, and said, "You don't understand, Johnny has never said one word in class since the beginning of the year, not one word. And, I know his karate training gave him the confidence to stand in front of the other children and talk and demonstrate." Although we didn't say it aloud, both Johnny's mother and I knew that this was a major advancement for Johnny, and would have a positive effect on him for the rest of his life.

To repeat, karate is less about your child learning to fight others and more about learning to fight the things that block his or her ability to succeed. Conquer those barriers and, with a new sense of pride, your child will be unstoppable.

So , I know this seems too good to be true, but your child will be physically stronger, more coordinated, and possess effective self-defense and safety skills, all while developing a new sense of discipline, confidence, and self esteem. 


Still, I know you're thinking, "How can I know for sure that the Nackord Karate program will work for my child? Will learning to kick, block, and punch really be the answer?" Well, I've made it easy for you to find out--for your child….
