Welcome Letter From Kenukan Academy Founder
Kenukan Academy, the International Headquarters for the Kenukan Budokai, and the Midwest Office for the Bushidokan Yudanshakai, is the oldest Martial Arts Academy in Johnson County, and has been serving the Olathe and Kansas City area "SINCE 1968".
Although we have produced over 270 International, National, and State Champions in sport competition, we specialize in tactics which are practical and effective in REAL LIFE SITUATIONS.
In the mid-60's, I began my martial arts training under the instruction of Sensei Seiyu Oyata, Okinawan Kenpo, and later became a student under Sensei Jim Harrison, founder of the Bushidokan Martial Arts Style (Judo-Jujitsu, Karate-Kickboxing, & Ronin Goshin Jutsu). Under their instruction and influence, I surpassed any goals that I set for myself in my early years of training.
In 2006, I handed Kenukan Academy to my son, Travis Boggs, a 2-Time International Gold Medalist, Black Belt under both me (Kenukan-Ryu) and Jim Harrison (Bushidokan-Ryu), & one of the best instructors in the country. His patience, detailed explanations, & hands-on teaching style, are truly second to none. The Academy I founded over 50 years ago is in good hands!
I encourage you to take the big step and become a Kenukan Academy student. The "do" or the "path" will not always be easy. Although you will have many hard workouts, the system or style will not be your toughest road block. You will be your toughest roadblock to hurdle. That is why we combine the spirit of the native American Eagle and the innovation of our Forefathers with the knowledge of Eastern Traditions. We believe: "DISCIPLINE THE MIND, THE BODY WILL FOLLOW!"
Kenukan Academy's Martial Arts curriculum encourages and inspires everyone to reach their potential and helps us all adjust for life's challenges. As a practitioner in both Kenukan-Ryu & Bushidokan-Ryu, a student will learn to excel, and be all that he or she can be.
Over 140 years ago, a famous American, General Stonewall Jackson, a peace-time college professor, taught his students: "YOU MAY BE WHAT YOU RESOLVE TO BE." We can help that dream come true. By combining mental and physical achievement at each student's own level, we can dynamically instill the pride of individual responsibility and achievement. This discipline then becomes lifelong and spills over into all aspects of one's life, whether it's home, job, schoolwork, or extra curriculum activities.

People like Mr. Boggs have much more impact upon the lives of
ordinary citizens than do the major sports. I truly believe that every
person fortunate enough to be influenced by Bob is one less person
with whom I will have contact.
Hon. Thomas H. Bornholdt
Johnson County District Court Judge
I need not go into all the awards and kudos heaped on Mr. Boggs,
his reputation as a skilled teacher and as a community leader need no amplification. The Boggs family is not just members of the community;
they are among the very few citizens who lead by example.
Former Law Enforcement Officer
Educator & Community Leader
We needed personnel with positive attitudes and outstanding leadership abilities...that is where Boggs stood out. More important to the organizers than Boggs' karate skills, were his contributions as a leader...This exemplary administrator is a credit to his entire community.

I'm proud to call Travis Boggs one of my Black Belts. He is one of the few individuals to earn advance instructor rank in my Karate, Judo, & Ronin Jutsu Systems. I’m always impressed by his student’s skill levels, their spirit, & open-mindedness . . . that which can only come from one source, their teacher.

A Jim Harrison / Bob Boggs Black Belt is as good as it gets in the Martial Arts! My deepest respect to Jim Harrison, Bob Boggs, & our next generation, Travis Boggs, a first rate Black Belt.
Bob "O'Hara" Wall

Karate Champion / Movie Star / Bruce Lee’s Sparring Partner
Black Belts such as Jim Harrison, Roger Carpenter, or Bob Boggs are butt kickers. If I’m in a bad situation, I don’t want the national kata champion standing next to me. I want the guy who knows about kicking butt & taking names.
