360 Family Martial Arts is a school disciplined in the art of American Kenpo Karate. American Kenpo is a blended system of both traditional Japanese and Chinese karate as well as Kung Fu and Jiu-Jitsu. We do not teach performance or sport karate. We are dedicated to self-defense, self-discipline and self-development. The school is owned and operated by 3rd degree black belts Stacey and Scott Conder. The school has a rich family atmosphere with a strong emphasis on discipline. In addition to self-defense 360 FMA offers a compelling curriculum that includes stranger awareness, bully deterrence and abduction prevention for children. 360 FMA has a strong relationship with many of the local schools and has been invited to many of the Crown Point public and private schools over the last several years to discuss bully awareness and prevention with kids and faculty. Quite simply we don't teach kids how to fight, we teach them how not to fight. The best way to defeat a bully or stay out of danger with strangers lies in making good decisions. Self-defense is always the last resort and the least desireable solution to conflict. However when no other options are available our students are trained to know what to do. As with any martial arts program, interested students should look at a school carefully before making a decision and a commitment to training. For this reason we always offer free trial classes to help potential students decide if our school is a good fit for their family.
