Shaolin Kempo


Warrior skills know no age and neither do our programs. We've specifically designed Greenwich Kempo's Adult program to demonstrate how martial arts is not just a functional form of training -- it can be a way of life.

At this level, it's all about praxis -- a blend of theory and practice, allowing students to acquire both knowledge and skill through consistent individual practice and partner work. Students will also explore and hone their practice in sparring, freestyle, and traditional kata form.


Options for one, or more days per week.

Starting at $225 per month.

tai chi


There is the yang -- the external force and energy we put out into the world — and there is the yin — the meditative and reflective building up and transversing of this energy. Come learn how to balance the two sides of your life force, what is known as "chi" energy.

Practicing Tai Chi is the perfect complement to a discipline of martial arts, bringing the body into balance and greater, more subtle awareness of the spatial and vibrational forces all around us. It's also a great way to infuse functionality and flexibility, lengthening and strengthening your muscles with simple but powerful movements in a graceful yet powerful "flow".

Kung Fu


Are you ready to move beyond the ordinary, and step into a higher level—a more complete and more spiritual form of martial arts?

We are honored to offer Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu classes with Sifu Marlon Pilossoph—a rare, true master of this art form.

It is described as explosive and demanding, but Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu is also one of the most rewarding martial arts... because its practice alone reconnects you with who you really are.

Seven Star Praying Mantis Kung Fu was developed in the 17th century and was based on the attack and self-defense techniques of the praying mantis, modeling the principles behind the insect’s movements. It emphasizes the mutuality of "hard" and "soft" techniques, so the practitioner is not limited to sheer power alone.

The system uses long-range kicking strategies, close-range trapping in-fighting techniques, attacks to vital points, joint locks, and throws. You’ll also learn traditional Chinese weapons such as the staff, sabre, spear and sword.

Here's what our adult students have to say

Happy Parent & Student


"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!"
