M.A.X. Dojo American Kenpo Karate Instructors

Our Instructors have spent many years devoted to training in the art of American Kenpo karate and other martial arts. They have attained a certain level of expertise to qualify them as teachers and also mentors.

Through extensive testing, certification and tournament level competition, our instructors have attained advanced levels in this martial art and now enjoy sharing their skill and passing it on to their students.


Mr. William Kongaika
Chief Instructor/Owner

Mr. Kongaika was the former Manager and Chief Head Instructor at Ed Parker’s original Pasadena Studio and was personally instructing many Kenpo black belts as well as Black Belts from other martial arts backgrounds. His goal is to perpetuate the art of Kenpo by not compromising the quality and substance of the system. The art of Kenpo evolves by applying the universal principles and concepts of motion and adding upon the base of the system -- not by deleting. He hopes to play a significant role in helping to unite our Kenpo family together again—believing that we can continue to grow by unifying our talents for the benefit of our own students.

Today...and as a respected 6th Degree Black belt, he continues his quest to keep Kenpo alive and keep the flame burning by opening up his own studio called "M.A.X. Dojo"

Mr. Chris Müeller
Head Instructor

Born in Germany in 1972 Mr. Chris Mueller began his Martial Arts training at the age of seven with the art of Judo. After trying several other sports, such as soccer and table tennis, Mr. Mueller returned to the Martial Arts in 1985, and began studying Ed Parker's Kenpo Karate under Christian Springer at the age of 13. It didn't take long that he realized that Kenpo would become his livelong passion. In 1986 Mr. Mueller began successfully competing in tournaments around Europe: West-German Champion (freestyle), 2nd place at the German Master Series (freestyle), 2nd place at the Pon Do Kwan Championships (forms and freestyle) just to name a few. Mr. Mueller is one of the few German Kenpoists that have met, and trained with Mr. Ed Parker personally during his visit in 1989.

Mr. Chris Moreno

Head Instructor
Santa Clarita

Chris Moreno started studying Kenpo Karate at Mr. Parker's original Pasadena studio at age 18.  Little did he know then, that this hobby would turn into a life long passion.  Mr. Moreno studied under Grand Master, Frank Trejo, Mr. Tommy Chavies and Mr. Girard at the Pasadena studio for 3 years.  He continued to study under Mr. Chavies exclusively for several years and currently studies, proudly, under the direction of Mr. William Kongaika.  Mr. Moreno opened his "private" studio in Santa Clarita in May 2006 teaching children and adults. Mr. Moreno also offers a family class, which allows parents and their children to study together in a private lesson.  When asked what he likes about Kenpo, Mr. Moreno stated, "Everything! Kenpo is practical and timeless, it can be used by people of all sizes, and is effective against any style of martial art".  Please contact Mr. Moreno for class schedules and pricing.
