Who We Are?

Lance Clayton is a 8th degree black belt and he has been teaching American Kenpo Karate for over 40 years! He founded his original school, Clayton’s Kenpo Karate, in 1997 before transitioning to Vernon to open Lance Clayton's Kenpo Karate in 2022. Lance has completed extensive training with some of the top instructors in American Kenpo Karate. We use Zig Ziglar’s “I Can” program to help students develop the discipline necessary to power a champion-in-life mindset. In this program, our students learn the ABCs of a martial arts black belt: Attitude, Behavior and Character. To ensure that students receive the highest possible level of mentoring, our professional instructors go through a mandatory year-round training program. This allows them to give students a positive and uplifting experience each time they set foot on the mat. We believe that clarity is power. This is why we encourage every student to have a clear goal. In relation to this, we keep our lines open so students and their parents know where they stand in terms of progress. Level up your skills. Learn advanced sparring techniques along with weapons training.
