Training is for ages 12 to 17. This training is intense, challenging, disciplined and fun. Teens are encouraged to have a joke when they come here, or the class will be harder. What I mean by this is that you must have your mind in the right place when here. That focus will lead to a better realization of what they think they can do, and what they are really capable of. Most of the students at this age have been here for 1 to 4 years.
It is very uncommon age brackets for students in Martial Arts, particularly those that can drive. Before you graduate high school which you could say is the first big accomplishment of their life. Becoming a Black Belt in KenSho-Ryu before you graduate, would certainly be enlightening for them. Proving that if you make it here you will realize you can handle better anything that life throws at you. Does not mean it will be easy, but you will have greater self pride in your ability to handle difficulties as you did training. Perhaps training here is something you will do your entire life, as I will. Compared to age 4 to 11, in your teens is the age you are able to handle the understanding of self defense training.
We will go into more depth of street scenarios, club and knife defenses, multiple attackers, ground defenses, and proper mind set. This will help prepare you for Adult training. This school provides an excellent and comfortable Family atmosphere. We encourage interaction from everyone for the benefit of everyone. In other words you are not here for just you, for those you train with also.
Welcome to KenSho-Ryu.
