Limited class size of 6 students
With smaller class sizes, you learn more effectively from focused teaching.
"Previously my sons were placed in another local Karate school but those classes often had more than 20 young children being taught by only one senior student. Those classes provided very poor guidance to the students and little discipline. At Kenshusei, the personal and individual attention devoted to my children's learning is reflected in their noticeable progress."
"In a short period of time at Kenshusei, it was apparent that they [our children] had learned more discipline, self control, new techniques, and have become much more dedicated about attending classes. The strong motivation in the classes has given them increased self confidence, allowing them to achieve their goals as students much more quickly than they would have."
Massimo Lanna & Paola Braybrook
"The awareness that I have acquired through my training is an invaluable tool. When asked by co-workers, "Have You ever had to use your martial arts?" -- (and I know that these people are thinking kicks and punches), I tell them that I use it every day, just as you once told me years ago. How unfortunate that more people don't understand the true essence of the Martial Arts!
