At CCK, we teach practical self defense skills proven to be effective. Challenge yourself to come see the difference between us and the commercial schools.

At CCK we teach the art of American Kenpo for children and adults. We also offer classes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as well as MMA. Here at CCK, we are passionate about providing our students with the tools required to effectively defend themselves if ever needed.

Why kids who do combat sports at a young age are better prepared for life

Good article outlining the benefits gained from combat sports, stressing the importance of consistency in training and how it develops muscle memory which is needed to effectively defend oneself in a real life situation. Necessary life skills such as self-reliance, discipline, and perseverance are all acquired over time and will carryover into adult lives. The lessons children learn in combat sports will stay with them for a lifetime.

We would like to wish all of our students, families and friends a Happy New Year!! We are grateful for the loyalty and support that everyone continues to show, as well as the new faces that the past year has given to us. And with the good times throughout the last 12 months that have brought a lot of laughter and many reasons to celebrate, 2019 also delivered a huge loss with the passing of our good friend and long time student Steve Hoff, whose spirit remains, attached to the echo of his belly laugh and the countless memories he created for which we hold onto.
Looking ahead, 2020 will take us to year 17 of officially opening our own doors in Carroll County. May the new year bring good health and happiness to each of you and your family members. Cheers to another successful year!! 🎉 See everyone tomorrow!!

Dayhoff: Remembering Westminster grad Steve Hoff, a successful farmer and 3-time state wrestling champion

Truly remarkable. His presence is missed. On Nov. 12, the Maryland sports scene, Carroll County and the greater Westminster community suffered a great loss with the death of my childhood friend and neighbor, Steve Hoff, 62, of Westminster and Patapsco. He passed away at the University of Maryland Medical Center after an extended illness.

Evidence Suggests Martial Arts, Wrestling, Grappling Best For ADHD Children   Attention deficit disorder is a very common occurrence among children. For those who are hyperactive it’s always best to get involved with sports, as they offer many benefits including physical exercise, development of social skills and development of self worth. However not all sports are equa...

A Celebration of Life Service for Steve Hoff will be held this morning at Fletcher Funeral Home; 11:00 am. We are closed today.

Obituary for Steve Hoff | Fletcher Funeral & Cremation Services, P.A.

PLEASE REMEMBER, WE WILL BE CLOSED ON SATURDAY Obituary for Steve Hoff | Wilfred Stevenson “Steve” Hoff, Jr., 62, of Seven Valleys, PA, formerly of Finksburg, died Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Born November 7, 1957 in Gettysburg, PA, he was the son of Wilfred S. Hoff, Sr. and the late Annie Hughe....

Yesterday, we lost our very good friend and an active member of our school, Steve Hoff. Steve began taking classes with us after his son, the younger Steve, introduced him to Kenpo. He became very passionate about studying and practicing, earning his second degree brown belt in the years that he shared with us. This is only one of many, many accomplishments that he worked so hard for in his lifetime. Steve not only enjoyed working out with his fellow students and instructors, he also stepped in at times to help out with our kids’ program, sharing his vast wrestling knowledge and expertise. There was never a question as to whether Steve was in the building as you could always hear his boisterous laugh echoing down the hall. So as we prepare to say goodbye, our hearts are heavy. He will be missed without question and always remembered as a one of a kind individual. Rest easy, dear friend.

We will be sharing Steve’s obituary soon for those interested in attending the upcoming memorial services and learning a little more about his life.
