Get to know us

   West County Martial Arts & Fitness is a family owned and operated school. Our goal is to provide quality instruction with a positive and comfortable environment. We are part of an American Martial Arts legacy that has spread Kenpo Karate to nearly every country across the globe, and our internationally renowned martial art is considered to be among the most effective self defense systems in the world today.  
   Our own 5th Degree Black Belt Associate Professor, Mr. Tobin Beach has been teaching the Art of American Kenpo Karate, and providing the people of Sonoma County with the highest quality of self-defense instruction available for over 21 years. As a former tactical defense instructor for the Army Corps of Engineers, Mr. Beach is one of the most highly qualified self-defense artists in Northern California, and his expertise in working with behaviorally challenged at-risk youths makes him an amazingly patient and skilled educator. School owner and 2nd Degree Black Belt Instructor Sheila Beach, is not only an excellent Kenpo Instructor, but a college educated medical professional. Her combined martial arts education of over 14 years, her background in Japanese Jui Jitsu and extensive Kenpo training have made her an indispensable part of our teaching team.  Also joining our teaching team is the Goddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Beach, Kianna Sweet, Junior Black Belt, and talented martial artist with nearly 9 years of training. Joining us seasonally in between his courses at UC Merced, is Kalib Caples, the second oldest member of the Beach clan, a Junior Black Belt, International Level competitor, and a skilled and dedicated instructor. Together, the Beach’s and their group provide a family friendly atmosphere that parents and students alike will find both inviting and inspirational.
