Randall K. Flaherty - our Grandmaster and the Founder and President of the FKKA (Flaherty’s Kenpo Karate Association) - has over 39 years of experience in the field. A 10th degree Black Belt of Southern and Northern Kenpo Karate, Flaherty opened his first studio in 1989 as Seneca Martial Arts. Since opening FKKA in 1991, he has taught thousands of people from all walks of life. 
Flaherty’s Kenpo Karate is a system of martial arts characterized by the use of very quick hand and foot movements in ways designed to overwhelm an opponent. It is a self-defense system derived from the input of many different sources - Kenpo Karate, traditional Chinese Kung-fu, boxing, Aikido, Arnis, and other martial arts forms/styles found both in the United States and in other countries. 
Flaherty has introduced significant modifications to his art, including principles, theories, and concepts of motion and human speed development. The Grandmaster’s dedication to his community at large and to the people affiliated with his school is evident in his work. Just watch how involved he is teaching, be it with a group or a private class!
