Why Ronin Kenpo?


Ronin Kenpo Karate has been serving Rhode Island Communities for more than 18 years.


The instructors at Ronin Kenpo are highly trained, highly skilled and totally committed to the development of quality students.


Kyoshi Dennis Gomes, in addition to the instruction he received from Professor Nick Cerio, has trained with Grand Master Mark Sheeley, the founder of Kensho-Ryu Kenpo for more than 20 years.  He is a member of the Kensho-Ryu Hall of Fame and was certified to teach Nick Cerio’s Kenpo by Grand Master Cerio before his untimely death in 1998.  Besides his Kenpo training he is ranked in Funakoshi Shotokan (Sensei Roger St. Pierre), and is currently studying Kenjutsu, Battojutsu and Tameshigiri (sword arts), under the guidance of Soke Wally M. Islam (Komushin Ryu JuJitsu).


A no-nonsense curriculum that has not only been tournament tested, but also street tested.  The chief characteristics of Ronin Kenpo Karate that distinguish it from other martial arts are its speed and power, economy of motion and intricate hand movement.
