What we offer
Martial Arts Classes
We are Red Deer and Central Alberta’s longest running and best equipped Martial Arts school. We have been teaching students since 1983 and continue to be the Martial Arts leader in Central Alberta. Whether you are looking to study Karate, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, or Self Defense, we have the perfect class for you.
Children’s Karate Classes
If you are looking to put your child in to Martial Arts, our Kids Karate classes are the perfect first step. We offer a 3-month introductory program for new beginners, and start taking children around 5 years old. Our Kids Karate classes teach the basic skills of karate (techniques and training advance as they do) and the classes instill a sense of respect, self worth, and discipline.
Adult Karate Programs
Our Adult Karate classes are aimed at developing a persons fitness and self defense. Our Adult Karate classes are great for both recreational and competitive Martial Arts students.
Our Adult Karate classes are excellent for improving cardio, flexibility, fitness, and coordination, but also help reduce anxiety, stress, and increase confidence and self-worth. Our Adult Karate class provides one of the most comprehensive and physical workouts possible, while providing knowledge of self defense; knowledge which could prove to be life saving
Kickboxing & Muay Thai classes
Combining traditional Muay Thai, Martial Arts, and Boxing techniques, along with an intense cardiovascular workout make this class the ULTIMATE in conditioning and challenge. In this class you will learn from real Kickboxers, not fitness instructors or Martial Artists who put on boxing gloves and call themselves kickboxers.
Self Defense classes & personal protection
At Cheney’s Zen Karate & Kickboxing, you do not need to train in a regular Martial Arts program to learn critical self defense skills. We operate our Self Defense classes on a private and semi-private basis. We have Self Defense classes for individuals, Self Defense classes for groups, and self defense classes for companies.
Master instructor Lyle Cheney teaches all Self Defense and Personal Protection classes. Mr. Cheney has over 47 years experience as a Martial Artist, 39 years instructing Martial Arts, and is a retired, 20 year veteran RCMP Auxiliary Police Constable. Mr. Cheney is knowledgeable in a wide variety of assault and crime prevention techniques.
“RED DEER’S HOUSE OF CHAMPIONS”
