Black Dragon Kenpo Karate is located in Centerport, New York. The school offers high quality martial arts instruction in a open and student-friendly way.



Kenpo is a combination of ancient fighting techniques and modern scientific principles. It is an unending flow of motion, a force which can overwhelm any attacker.

Every move creates a specific reaction in your opponent. Each reaction leads you to your next move. Every strike is a block, every block a strike. Each move flows into the next. This logical and sequential flow of motion is the essence of Kenpo.

Head Instuctor Sensei Steve Cordaro offers each student a training program which is both effective and flexible.
