Nubian-Te Kempo = One system of self-defenes.
The M.A.S.E. objective is to provide an umbrella for those youth that desire membership and support from the B.E.S.T. Karate Club for peace. Our approach to training will provide discipline, physical and mental health and wellness benefits for the youth in the inner-city.
We will measure our accomplishment by membership, community acceptance/support, newsletters, and participation. Every member will receive a B.E.S.T. membership identification card and pray-fully a patch and label pin that will identify them as a B.E.S.T. Karate Peace warrior.
We offer the following types of martial arts:
- Chinese Kempo - Taekwondo - San Shou - GungFu - Boxing.
