Ridgefield Kempo will be opening Monday, Aug. 14, at 105 Danbury Road.

“Kempo is a striking art, a method of practical self defense,” owner and instructor George Woolf told The Press.

Classes for all ages will be offered Monday through Saturday.  The studio will be open 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday.

Editor's note: A previous edition of this story incorrectly stated that Kempo was moving into the Kennedy's Barber Club location. The business will be sharing space in the same building as Kennedy's, which remains open.
