Thirteen years ago, on this very day, my student, Zachary Kauffman, achieved his black belt, facing a testing board comprising esteemed professors from the American Judo and Jujitsu Federation. Today, he stands as a three-degree black belt, a devoted husband, and a father of two, while also embracing his role as a high school health teacher.

The journey to success is rarely a straightforward one; it's filled with twists and turns, setbacks, and triumphs. Yet, through unwavering determination and the resilience forged over years of dedicated training at Kenshokan, Sensei Zack has become an integral and thriving member of our community.

Zach, we wholeheartedly salute your relentless efforts, applaud your remarkable achievements, and eagerly anticipate the greater heights you will undoubtedly reach in the years ahead.

Our Story

*Top 5 Reasons Why People Choose KSK Martial Arts Academy*

A warm family friendly environment.
Authentic Martial Arts Instruction
Learning that’s fun
Convenient location
New and lifelong friendships

Since 2001 Kenshokan Martial Arts has existed to promote positive growth in its members and its community.
We remain firmly anchored in tradition while embracing and exploring the future of Danzan Ryu Jujitsu.
We have helped to empower hundreds of our members through a sincere training experience in a supportive environment.

Whether you are the parent of a child who would benefit from an increase in confidence, self control, alertness, and determination, or an adult looking for a life enhancing activity with benefits of fitness, stress reduction, improved mental clarity, and self defense, KSK Martial Arts has a program to fit your needs. We do not have black belt clubs, students progress at their own pace and are promoted on merit. We focus on sincere training and get real results All the while maintaining a disciplined but not rigid environment.

One of the unique facets of "Danzan Ryu Jujitsu" is that it has been taught to young children since its inception. We are not teaching a watered down version of a military art rather we are continuing a tradition of instructing age appropriate self defense and character development. Our school has hosted students of all ages and abilities, from Girl Scouts to members of military and law enforcement.

Using a disciplined, but not rigid or militaristic dojo culture we at KSK help prepare children for the changes from home to preschool, grade school to middle school and on to high school and college. Our family friendly atmosphere reinforces values taught in the home.

Our physical curriculum uses exercises designed to challenge young students. We divide between strength training with a focus on core conditioning, and agility exercises to help a child’s neuro-muscular development.

Our fun, nurturing and age appropriate classes, which include a holistic martial arts and life education system provide the perfect environment for your child to develop "Focus & Discipline, Courtesy & Confidence, Problem Solving Skills, and Social Intelligence". These skills serve as a blue print for success.
We partner with families to build strong confident children for a better world.

We also offer an After School Martial Arts Program at KSK Martial Arts. Our program provides a safe and warm atmosphere where students can decompress from the school day and complete their homework supervised by our Homework Club Director, Tamara Poretz and her staff. Tamara holds a BA in Liberal Arts and a California Teaching Credential.
Students also get a one hour jujitsu workout. Our hope is that by the time the student is picked up, he/she will have had a great workout, finished their homework, and enables you to take your children home to have some quality family time!

We offer classes seven days a week. Be our guest for a free trial membership. I recommend a minimum of two classes. New students should wear comfortable clothing suitable for exercise and should be well hydrated. We have water available.
My staff and I are happy to answer any questions you might have. Please contact me at 818-347-3656 or via email.
