About Universal Kenpo Karate Dojos

Universal Kenpo Karate Dojos is a family of American Kenpo studios that fall under the Parker/Planas/Hughes lineage. All schools are currently ran and taught by Mr. Hughes or students of Mr. Hughes and his lineage. Currently there are UKK schools across the Midwest and as far west as Idaho. All schools use the same curriculum, though some teach children as well as adults. In addition, we gather for events like the twice yearly Step-Exam, for Mr. Hughes' seminar tours, and for special seminars with Mr. Richard "Huk" Planas, Mr. Zach Whitson, and other Kenpo seniors. UKK's origin came about in the mid-90's when Mr. Hughes was teaching in Storm Lake, Iowa and has since grown into multiple schools and clubs.
