The Kempo First Foundation promotes values that we feel are the foundation of a healthy, happy, and productive life. These tenets have been passed down through generations of instructors and are the focus of our program.

Attitude: Our attitudes when we face situations in our lives reflect back on us through others. How we choose to view situations, and how to react to them, has a profound impact on the quality of life.

Strong character: The Martial Way requires that one live their life in a responsible, meaningful way. Our individual natures can be formed by our actions to create a better, more meaningful life.

Respect: Treating others the way you wish to be treated is a foundation of civilization that has been weakened over the years. It is vital that we base our personal interactions in mutual respect.

Sincerity: Behaving with honesty and truthfulness in our everyday activities.

Effort: Always do ones best and be willing to push beyond your percieved limitations.

Self-discipline: The ability to control yourself, mentally and physically, in any situation.

Compassion: The ability to see the world through other people’s eyes, and having the desire to alleviate the distress of others.

Understanding: To know others through an understanding of oneself.
