Serving our community since 1977
At Flores Bros. Kenpo Karate Studios, our aim is to provide you with the finest martial arts education in Ventura County, equipping you with the skills to protect yourself, promote good health, and empower you to achieve personal excellence in all aspects of life.
Our school is viewed by our members as a center for self-enhancement, both physically and mentally, rather than simply being a dojo for fitness activity. It fosters a sense of community and family. We prioritize the overall development of the individual, encompassing physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social growth.
I take great pride in providing a safe and enjoyable environment for our adult members, where they can develop lean muscle, effectively lose weight, increase flexibility, and relieve stress and learning one of the finest self-defense systems created by the father of American Karate, Master Edmond Parker.
Furthermore, parents in the Ventura County area have credited our martial arts classes with improving their children's focus, both in school and at home, boosting their self-esteem, and sparking a passion for self-improvement that they never thought possible.
Our coaches have years of experience have all been certified by Jesus Flores, one of the word's foremost authority in Kenpo Karate and one of the first certified by Master Edmond Parker himself in 1978.
Every student of our dojo has the option to add at a very reasonable fee one-on-one instruction and training to help them meet their goals within our system.
Smart Low Impact Fitness
At the Flores Bros. Kenpo Karate Studio, our system by design also incorporates low impact aerobic fitness that allows anyone from 6 years of age to 80 to benefit from our training classes.
I can’t believe that I have two doctors for my “kids” now! As I said, I am so
grateful and firmly believe that the concentration and ethics they are taught
at Flores Bros. Kenpo Karate helps to shape them into the humble and
well-achieving individuals they are today!Best wishes, as always.

I've been a student since 1979 and it seizes to amaze me how much you can keep learning throughout the years, primarily because you always have the ability to train with people of all shapes and sizes which in turn helps you adapt to real world situations.
Also being able to learn right here in our back yard from Sifu Jesus Flores, one of the most respected instructors in the world is worth every penny.

The Flores Bros. have trained such fine students over the years. Sifu Jesus is such a
legend it’s hard to find quality self-defense instruction. The students and parents
at the studio are so close they are considered family. Flores Bros. Kenpo Karate Studio
is the oldest studio in the county, in that alone says it all. Thank you Sifu Jesus and Lori
for your dedication to Ventura County for the quality of instruction of such an incredible art. -- The Mixons --
I was a student of the Flores Bros Studio back in the 80s. It’s more than just a Karate studio. They raised me like I was one of their own. They taught me discipline, respect, mental toughness and what family was all about. The list goes on and on…

Grand Master Sifu Jesus is a 10th degree black belt, who has a vast amount of knowledge in the art, he still has the commitment and passion for the art, and a pretty cool smile. Who else would you want your child to learn from, or yourself?

Great place to sign up your kids for karate because the instructors are really knowledgeable. Not only is my daughter learning karate but she is also learning self control, discipline, and respect to name a few things.

On the advice of my son’s counselor to get him involved in martial arts as a way
for him to learn focus and self control and with strong recommendations from
several family friends to choose Flores Bros Kenpo Karate Studio in Oxnard, my
husband and I enrolled him in the fall of 2011. He immediately enjoyed the structure and routine of the Flores Bros classes and discovered how well he could balance and kick.
During his time under Sifu Jesus as well as the many other wonderful, patient and caring instructors, my son’s confidence and focus has improved as well as his cooperation. He has learned that his hard work and effort will be recognized and rewarded through positive feedback as well as advancement. I truly appreciate the instructors at Flores Bros for helping my son change his behavior and for creating such a positive environment for him to grow and
discover about himself.

Walking into the Flores Bros. Studio you automatically feel a sense of community of respect, family oriented, and the feeling of I belong here. My children once said, ” Sifu Jesus is like an uncle to me and the
Karate Studio is like our second home”. Our children have been attending
for more then 5 years and Sifu Jesus has not only taught the children the importance
of self defense but also the ability to learn some long life skills such as;
having the positive attitude in gaining self confidence, using self control,
the importance of working in a cohesive team environment, setting short and
long term goals, teaching the children that practice will help you achieve your
goals and most of all having respect. We want to thank Sifu Jesus Flores and Lori
for all the time and dedication you have given the children, adults and families. And for the quality of instruction you have given many children and adults throughout the years. We are looking forward in enrolling our 2 year old
daughter when she turns 5.
The Izaguirre Family
Excellent, Grade-A, Traditional studio. I’m a 6 year martial artist in another style, and I’ve been to many different studios and practiced a little in many other styles besides my primary style, and because of that I’m particular about studios and instructors. This place is top notch, one of the best places I’ve had the pleasure of walking into. Having just moved to the Oxnard area, I had hope…d to find a studio of a different style that I could begin learning, and I was lucky enough to check this place out. I was welcome to try out as many classes as I could for a week to see if I liked it, so I did. Though, it only took the first class, along with assessing the place and people upon entering, and I was hooked. Kenpo, which I have previously had trained in a little bit, is already a great style, especially to be training under someone as knowledgeable, respectful, and respectable as Sifu Jesus Flores. I gladly signed up for 2 years with this place, only because that’s the max i could have done (6 months was an option too, but I know this place is for me). I’m 24 years old, in case that helps anyone, so I’m mostly speaking from an adult standpoint. Though, as a previous instructor for a number of years, I can tell that his Jr. Adult/Childrens’ classes are excellent as well. I get nothing out of writing this review, but if it helps even one person realize a great school (who might not know what to look for), then it’s worth stating my opinion. Clean, well maintained, traditional, respectful, and all that other good stuff. There’s no harm in stopping by and checking it out. Do yourself the favor… and good luck.
