  Kenpo Karate is an Art created by ancient Samurai Warriors of Japan to deal with the most severe       self defense situations.  "Kenpo (Ken means fist, Po means Law).  "Karate" (Kara means empty, and     Te means Hand).  Fist Law or Law of the Fist, no weapons.  Kenpo is the first Americanized Martial     Art.  Historically, Kenpo was introduced into the Hawaiian Islands by James Mitose.  Mitose was         sent to Japan when he was three years old to receive a formal education, including Martial Arts.         He returned to the U.S. in the late 1930's and opened a Kenpo school in 1942.  One of his                 students in Hawaii was William Chow.  Chow was twenty-six years old when he started training         with Mitose.  Many years later he received his Black Belt from another instructor named Thomas         Young.  Grand Master Ed Parker (the Father of American Kenpo) was another student of Mitose's.       Grand Master Ray Arquilla started training in 1965 under the Tracy Kenpo System.  He was
  awarded Judan, 10th Degree Master status in 1992.  He holds the rank of #3 Master in the Art of       Kosho-Shorei Kenpo from Great Grand Master James Mitose.  The Iron Dragon Kenpo is the only       self defense Art taught today that is designed to protect the individual by any, and all, means           necessary.  Kenpo, by its powerful philosophy and devastating hand techniques, enables the             individual to use enough force necessary to dissuade, disable, injure, or neutralize the assailant.       The Iron Dragon Martial Arts Institute is the Head Quarters School located in Roseville, California.     It is founded and operated by Grand Master Ray Arquilla with over forty-five years of continual         training in Martial Arts. The Iron Dragon Tactical School of Self Defense is a proud member of the     IDMAI.  The lineage and Kenpo history that we have through Grand Master Arquilla are an integral     part of our future.  With the addition of Master Toscano's knowledge, over thirty years of Law             Enforcement experience, and over 27 years of Martial Arts training with the Grand Master, few can     compare to the realism our training can prepare you for.  It gives students a good, solid foundation   for any situation that may arise.

The style of Martial Arts for all students primarily will be Kenpo.  As a student continues to progress in their Base Art, other Arts will be introduced as part of their curriculum to enhance their Base Art and increase their learning curve.  We develop students minds and bodies by            promoting essential motor skills.  Some skills are;  strengthening your coordination, balance, strength and          flexability through Martial Arts movements.  Other skills learned are discipline, respect, self esteem,                  confidence, and focusing through positive social interaction.  Weapons of variety will be introduced in                different phases of training.
