Sensei Deb Cupples, Owner 

Community Karate and Fitness was founded in 2006, by Sensei Deb Cupples, mom of 4 happy, successful adult kids and happy wife to an amazing husband who has always supported her dream to open her own dojo back in 2006.

Originally from Massachusetts, Deb has been a Colorado Springs resident for over 20 years.

High-energy, enthusiasm and a positive attitude is what sets Sensei Cupples' teaching style apart from the rest.

Sensei is active in the Colorado Springs community in local school districts #11 and #20.  Our dojo adopted Homestead Park from 2008-2017, where we picked up trash and kept the park and trails clean.

Community Karate and Fitness is proud to be an Underwriter for 91.5 KRCC , our local NPR station, since 2016.

We have supported InterFaith Hospitality, Silver Key, Care & Share, The Springs Rescue Mission, Inside/Out Youth Services, The American Heart Association and more.

Miss Jordan joined Community Karate and Fitness in 2014 and immediately fit right in. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet; our students feel right at home with Miss Jordan.

Miss Jordan enjoys competing in local and regional tournaments and has earned medals in both karate and kobudo (weapons training).

In addition to being our main instructor for our Kids Classes, Miss Jordan loves painting and is an accomplished artist.
