Fascinating on Twitter

This record breaking wave caught my attention this morning.
A gigantic unstoppable wall of water moving forward with incredible force.
Makes one think about the choices we make in our lives every day.
We can easily duck under the wave and hope it passes us by, we can stand still and be crushed, or we can choose to ride the wave and be propelled forward.
Choose wisely.

Fascinating on Twitter “Sebastian Steudtner, a German pro surfer, rode a wave over 115 feet tall at Nazare, Portugal, a record breaking surf!”

Our Kata contest is in 32 days. Please make sure your competitor is registered and is prepared to train with their partners.

Aside from preparing them for wins and losses later in their adult life, competitive activities help kids develop important skills like resilience, perseverance, and tenacity. They also learn how to take turns, encourage others, and develop empathy.

Dojo Families,

We will be hosting our Winter Kata Contest on November 13th.

Kata is a cooperative effort between a team of two contestants or one contestant and a "uke" (Non-Competitive Partner who receives the techniques)

A Kata contest helps students hone their jujitsu techniques as they work to put together their presentation for 8 techniques and a choreographed combative sequence. ( These can be funny, serious, or a little of both.)

They will be placed in a division with other students of similar age and experience levels.

Children who are involved in healthy competition may:

ask to participate in the activity again
be able to win and lose gracefully
learn new skills and want to better themselves
enjoy improved self-esteem
"Competition helps kids learn that it is not always the best or the brightest who are successful, but rather those that work hard and stick with it,"(They) "earn critical social skills through interacting with other children, while also learning the value of hard work and developing self-esteem and self-efficacy."

Timothy Gunn, Psy.D


How do I participate?

1)Register On-Line

2)Save Nov 13 on your calendar.

3)Pick your kata partner.

4)Attend the special training times we will make available.


Questions, ask Sensei.

I'll See You On The Mat!

This year due to costs and other reasons we are limiting the camp to 50 people including instructors at the above mentioned rate. We can have more attendees but they will be charged a higher rate and we will need to know who they are two weeks before the

Happy Monday!


What looks like a fun children's game at the end of class time is really much more.
Our version of Red Light-Green Light is done in Japanese, so while honing our listening and focus skills, we are dabbling in a new language.

The game is led by one of our senior students, under the supervision of a Black Belt instructor he is learning leadership and how to responsibly work with younger children as a mentor.

If your child would benefit from an increase in confidence, focus, and physical agility come by for a visit.


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.
