We're a super-talented team of Senseis and Sifus, and since 2013 we've been helping students of all ages really unlock the fun, growth, and achievement of the martial arts.
How are we different? What will your child get out of this?
Our #1 goal is fun. Because kids love having fun! And you want your kids to have fun.
But there’s another reason. If your kids have fun here, they’ll want to come back, and if they come back and stay long enough, they’ll get all the other benefits too... like courage, character and confidence, and lots more.
We want your kids to achieve things that are challenging.
When they do, they’ll feel the pride of having earned something meaningful, all on their own. And they’ll gain confidence when they see they can achieve things that may have seemed difficult, or even impossible at first.
Imagine your child as a bright, successful, independent, powerful individual who stands up for what he or she believes...
...and when necessary, can defend him or herself, mentally, emotionally and physically.
Our Senseis (instructors) are AMAZING with the kids. Our parents have used words and phrases like “firm, but gentle,” “hilarious,” “inspiring,” “incredibly patient,” “they really care,” “they teach our kids respect, discipline and a sense of community”... but words alone don’t do it justice - you really need to come see it for yourself!
Our job is to understand your child as an individual and provide the right balance of nurture and challenge for him or her. We do a thorough evaluation of your child when they start classes, and we customize our program to their personality and current level of skill.
We are a warm, familial community - our motto is “I Am Because We Are.” Your child will feel like they “belong” here, and are part of something exciting and bigger than themselves.
"The best place in Greenwich area where your child can learn to build character and self-confidence while having fun through the martial arts. The staff is highly professional and caring, you'll love the experience."
"The Senseis at Greenwich Kempo are not only skilled at their craft but they're also excellent educators. They understand the needs of children far beyond the concepts of Martial Arts."
"My son was very shy for the first two classes but Sensei Simon took time to talk with him and slowly ease him into the class. Today was our third class and he jumped right in. The smile on his face shows that he now has the confidence to do his best! Thank you!"
"Friendly, responsive, understanding! Great with kids of all abilities. You strive for discipline but with positive reinforcement and understanding. The kids are working but also having FUN! Great combo. I like that they really use their moves and do not just practice combinations in the air. It's very practical!"
"They go above and beyond to ensure that all students leave with their confidence raised and motivation amped up another notch. There's a formula of fun, learning, and exercise that they have perfected that leaves my kids always asking for when the next lesson is."
"The Senseis are fantastic! They plan fun, high energy classes while working with each student to maximize his/her potential."
We have a different approach. It's not easy to explain, but it's obvious when you see it and experience it. You just have to see it. . . which is another reason we give you 10 days with us, completely risk-free.
