Pendo Karate Fights For

Our Mission


“Fight not, but for.” Our motto states what we do and, that Pendo Karate is more than punching, and kicking. Pendo is applying Martial Art to overcoming problems, and life challenges. Pendo applies strategies, and resources to do what is right and good. We act, and we affect in positive ways. Also, as in all art, Pendo raises our consciousness and purpose in life.

Pendo Karate is also a community of thousands of teachers, students, parents, and friends, existing as a result of 24 years of service. We are a tremendous resource and organization. Through our efforts together we can fight for worthy causes, and help to solve great problems. Pendo Karate Fights For is our effort to help others who are confronted with life or health challenges like Autism, Cancer, or Family Loss. It is also a way for former members to rekindle friendships and reunite with our present community for good causes.

2nd Annual Pendo Gala

Pendo Karate Fights For

Pendo Karate is excited to announce that we will be hosting the 2nd Gala benefiting Luke’s Helping Hand to fight against Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. This serious disease has hit very close to our hearts. Our student Luke and his family have been affected by DMD. Pendo Fights For is committed to help in any way we can.

The Luke’s Helping Hand Foundation has been created by Luke’s family to raise money and awareness to help fund research toward this disease. DMD Research and treatment is very expensive, limited and exhausting. Currently, there are no FDA approved treatments for DMD. As a community, we are helping Luke, his family, and others.
