Action Kenpo Karate was established by Steve Sharpe in 1993. At Action Kenpo we teach the Tracy System of Kenpo, founded in 1961 by Al Tracy.

Tracy System schools specialize in teaching practical street self-defense. Our program will equip you with the skills to protect yourself and free yourself from almost any kind of street altercation imaginable.

At Action Kenpo you’ll learn how to deal with real-world situations: single and multiple opponents; grabs such as headlocks, chokes, and hammerlocks; and weapon-wielding opponents. In addition, you’ll build your fitness, strength, and self confidence.


Our Karate studio provides Adult Group Classes, Junior Group Classes, and Private Lessons every day of the week.

Great teacher! Been in martial arts most of my life from jiu-jitsu to Karate. And when it comes to Karate, Steve knows his stuff and knows how to teach it. Highly recommended!

Very experienced instructor. My son went and loved it on his very first day. I would recommend this to everyone who’s looking for a very experienced and disciplined instructor.

I highly recommend Action Kenpo Karate. I was a member for several years. I thought when I joined that if I ever earned a Purple or Blue Belt I would be satisfied. I ended up with a Green one. Unfortunately, I’m not able to participate due to unrelated physical issues. Steve is a very patient instructor and knows his stuff. Even after failing to perform a move correctly 10 times, Steve never made you feel like you failed. The group classes were fun and you will learn lots from them. It’s a casual atmosphere and everyone is made to feel comfortable and welcome. If you, your kids or your whole family want to learn self defense and get some great exercise Action Kenpo is a great place.

I have been a student of Steve’s Action Kenpo Karate since 2007. I definitely recommend this school to everybody, from youth to adult. Action Kenpo specializes in private instruction so you can benefit from the 1 on 1 training, as well as group classes, which focuses on enhancing your skills and fitness. This system of Karate is very practical; there is a wide plethora of self defense techniques, some of which contain multiple variations. Steve definitely knows how to run a Karate school! A no doubt, 5 stars !!!
