CCK Martial Arts

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.

Welcome to CCK Martial Arts where it is our mission to educate our students with a practical self defense system through quality instruction at a reasonable cost. 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. If you are interested in gaining true confidence without being locked into a long term, expensive contract, please check us out.

🇺🇸 #MemorialDay

Facebook memories shared that 7 years ago today, Mike promoted to 6th degree black belt under his current instructor, Mr. Paul Mills (pictured right), triggering the realization that this coming October will mark 30 years since testing for his 1st degree black in front of Mr. Ed Parker (pictured left)...a privilege and treasured memory as it was only two months before he passed away. Although the journey has slowed at times, it has never stopped. The span of years is a testament to his own words - This is not an activity...It is a way of life.

Good morning and happy throwback Thurs...just an 80s kid going to prom. Guess who 🕺🏾😎

Missing all of our special moms and grandmoms this year!! Enjoy your day!!

Shoutout to all of our instructors and class helpers!! Although we cannot be together and are missing our regular routines, we appreciate the time you have given to help our programs run!! THANK YOU!!

This is long, but we cannot close out the month of April without taking the time to thank everyone who has helped us reach another school anniversary. As I peruse through countless photos, many triggering a collection of memories, it feels great to see Mike still teaching what he so whole heartedly believes in. With a martial arts history that began at the age of 9, the idea of his own school only became concrete when our own two kids were old enough to get involved. They were the driving force when he approached the local family center to start up a few classes for kids, and within a few years we found ourselves needing more time and space. 17 years ago, we were fortunate enough to move on and officially open the door to our first location.
In the years since, we have met some wonderful families, made some great friends, created lasting memories, and have had the pleasure of seeing our young students go on to do remarkable things in various walks of life. I recently received a random text from the parent of two of those former students from our early years. In it, she thanked our family for the positive impact we had on them and for the gentleness and kindness that was shown to her kids during their time with us. With his focus constantly on helping his students, very rarely, if ever, will you hear Mike talk about himself or his accomplishments, but sometimes there are things that don’t have to go unsaid, and I believe this is one of those times. To receive such a heartfelt message after so many years had passed was touching to say the least and extremely uplifting at such an uncertain time for all of us.
So as we begin year 18 in the midst of a crisis, we want to express our gratitude to everyone (students, non-students, other school owners…) who continue to show support for CCK in whatever way that they can. We are thankful that technology has allowed us to stay connected to our students and families through virtual instruction, but admit that we are eager for the day that we can begin to gradually resume classes in person. From the moment we hear the back door close behind the first student to arrive, to the sound of little feet jumping down the front stairs, to the laughter that trails through the hall, to every voice we hear as the evenings progress, what we gain from the energy that fills the walls of that old brown building goes beyond description.
Thank you for another year! We look forward to the coming days with hopeful hearts!

Great seminar today at American Muay Thai in Towson with UFC’s #1 ranked bantamweight fighter, Marlon Moraes.

Happiest of birthdays going out to our good friend and senior instructor, Steve Hoff, who has been with us for the long haul (with the exception of that bottom right photo which was before our time 😁). Though reserved in his ways, and not one for this kind of attention, it can’t go unmentioned that this true “jack of all trades” is a loyal friend who has been there for us time and time again, on and off the mat. On behalf of all of us, HBD Steve! We hope you have a great day!!

[02/15/20]   We are taking orders for sweatshirts. Order forms are on the front showcase. We would like to have them turned in by the 25th.

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.

[01/29/20]   Parents of our Junior Class Students
Please check your email regarding future belt tests
