Welcome to Gulf Coast Kenpo Karate
Florida’s Premier Martial Arts School

We are SW Florida’s premier Kenpo studio located in Cape Coral, Florida specializing in the art of Ed Parker’s American Kenpo.  Proudly a member of 10th Degree, Mr. Joe Palanzo’s organization the WKKA – Worldwide Kenpo Karate Association.

Unfamiliar with Kenpo? The benefits it provides are internal, as well as external. Self-defense combined with self-confidence & esteem, physical fitness, focus & concentration, respect and discipline to name a few. Children through adults acquire the “can do” attitude.

Knowing the importance of quality instruction our classes are structured to allow an excellent student to instructor ratio.  Emphasizing tradition, yet realizing that learning is enhanced when done so in a comfortable and fun environment.

Husband and wife team Mike Squatrito & Renée Squatrito, 5th and 3rd degree respectively, own and operate Gulf Coast Kenpo Karate.
