I've been going to Kensho for 4 years and I still love it. It still kicks my butt every time I go. It's great for learning the many different styles of martial arts and getting fit. I'm still learning new stuff every week along with trying to perfect my older skills.

There’s a great focus on technique and fundamentals at Kensho. Roger Luri’s extensive experience really shows up in the training—not only instructing how to perform movements but also when and why. Very good stuff!!

Kensho is a Zen term for an initial enlightenment or awakening or more literally a glimpse of our true nature. At Kensho Martial Arts in Chicago, we believe that our true nature is health and happiness. Day to day stresses can easily cause us to feel distracted and to lose our confidence. Our training helps us keep our minds and bodies connected and in harmony to maintain confidence, inner calm and mental clarity.
