Chief Instructor - Shihan Chris Montella


“I love Montella's Karate Academy! Shihan Chris provides a welcoming and supportive environment in which to learn the art of Kenpo. I started karate in my 50's. Shihan Chris is patient and not only explains techniques but the theory behind them. It is a great place to learn."

"My son is always excited for karate lessons.  He loves going and enjoys being in the dojo. Shihan Chris and Shihan Wendy are awesome with children."
