Martial arts training is one of the most efficient, fun and rewarding ways to get into top shape and stay fit for life, but it is so much more than that. Martial arts practice becomes a way of life and provides an avenue for continuing self improvement and empowerment.  At Kensho Martial Arts Center, every class is fun and challenging.  You’ll leave class feeling great & be anxious to come back for more.

You don’t need to be in shape to start your training.

That’s what we’re here for. You don’t need any prior experience. We’ll be helping  you to develop smooth moves from day one. With a focus on conditioning, in Level 1 we start  with our unique blend of kickboxing styles and self defense basics to get you moving and learning to put your combinations together properly. From this foundation, you’ll be prepared to kick it up a notch. Try Chicago’s best Martial Arts experience serving Lincoln Park, Bucktown, Wicker Park, Old Town, River North, Lakeview, and nearby neighborhoods.

Roger takes a genuine interest in everyone in the class.  He really takes the time to watch each person and make corrections as needed.  Not only is he interested in teaching good form, he also puts an emphasis on camaraderie.
