There's a reason why Nackord Karate has maintained a large adult student population for the past 55 years: our students get results. As karate for children grows in popularity most schools have became 90% to 100% kids, making it ever harder for an adult to find a place to learn martial arts.
Decades have passed and NKS continues to attract adult students with a fulltime adult program. Our adult classes are staffed by certified Black Belt instructors, most with thirty or more years teaching experience. Our classes are beginner friendly, safe, results-oriented, and challenging. We emphasize physical fitness and skill development, with realistic self-defense and cutting edge performance principles.
Studying at the Nackord Karate System is to study multiple martial arts at the same time. The Nackord Karate System is a performance oriented martial art based [but not limited to] Three Primary Systems and their Grandmasters of whom Dennis Nackord was a direct student and directly promoted.

OUR ADULT CLASSES IN WAYNE INCLUDE:
KENPO KARATE: Kenpo is a traditional martial arts discipline going back thousands of years. Kenpo has passed through several cultures and nations before emerging as a way of self-defense, self-discipline, and self-knowledge in the United States. Kenpo is a self-defense oriented martial art that anyone can do because it is based on sound principles that transcend physical size or strength.
JOE LEWIS FIGHTING SYSTEMS [JLFS]: An eclectic art founded by the legendary, eight time world champion, GM. Joe Lewis. JLFS is the best of traditional martial arts and modern combat sports and self-defense. JLFS teaches you how to defend yourself against a trained opponent by use of strategy and dynamic movement.
BANDO: Bando is an art of many systems. Under ABA President GM Dr. Maung Gyi, BANDO it is the source of Nackord Karate weapons systems, systems of empty hand self-defense, grappling, combat sports competition, meditation and health.
JUJUTSU: Jujutsu dates back to the time of the Samurai. Referred to as the gentle art, teaches how to restrain and control an opponent without striking.

"What sets Nackord Karate apart is an infectious quality - a quality which is present in Mr. Nackord and in all of his instructors. Every individual associated with the studio has the ability to impart kindness, understanding, and empathy to their students, while never compromising an ability to deliver an unparalleled level of karate knowledge and skill instruction. In my mind, that is true Motivation."
