Our Academy is the oldest Martial Arts Academy in Johnson County and has been serving Olathe and Kansas City area "since 1971".

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.

Combining the better techniques of Judo, Karate, Ju-Jitsu, & Kickboxing, from several styles of Okinawan, Japanese, Chinese, and Korean systems, we have been able to develop one of the strongest and more versatile academies in the country . . . Kenukan . . . Today, recognized in over 160 countries!

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 Bushidokan & Ronin 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 and Jim Harrison, & 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 40 years ago is in good hands!

I encourage you to take the big step and become a Kenukan 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 at Kenukan 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's Eaglestar Martial Arts curriculum encourages and inspires everyone to reach their potential and helps us all adjust for life's challenges. As a member of Kenukan, 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.

Call today and set up an appointment for a private consultation to discuss enrollment into one of our four programs. And, ask about our FREE TRIAL NO OBLIGATION LESSON.  "Investigate, Before You Invest . . . Your Life May Depend On It!"
