Kensho Kickboxing – The Real Deal!

Unique Hybrid of Styles – Solid Skills – High Intensity Training

Seasoned Martial Artists or Beginner – LEVEL UP!



These days it seems that the term Kickboxing is often used synonymously with cardio or fitness kickboxing. But if you think you may really like it, the only way to get the benefits of kickboxing is if you keep it up and get really good at it.

You may work up a great sweat, but you’ll never get good at kickboxing by flailing your arms and legs in a fitness class! Throwing a lot of punches & kicks incorrectly, only builds bad habits and insures that you won’t stay with it in the long term.

No of us is born knowing how to punch and kick. We all start as beginners. The difference is that at Kensho we have the experience and time tested step by step curriculum to get you started on the right foot and bring you step-by-step all the way to black belt level.


At Kensho, we’ll have you putting your punches & kicks together the right way (& getting an awesome workout) from day 1. You’ll be developing the solid technique and skills to train safely and take your fitness to the next level, but don’t worry, you don’t have to fight anyone!

Wikipedia says: Kickboxing is a group of combat sports based on kicking and punching, historically developed in Japan beginning in the late 1950’s from Karate and  Muay Thai.  Kickboxing is practiced for self-defense, general fitness, or as a contact sport.
The first cross style tournaments in the U.S. were held in Chicago in 1962 by Count Dante and Dr. Muang Gyi. (Grand Master Gyi was an instructor of Sensei Luri’s  for many years in Bando – Burmese Kickboxing and other other martial arts.)
Kickboxing has always been a hybrid of different combat sports. Our Kensho Kickboxing system was born from Boxing and Karate (which were the origins of Kickboxing in America in the 1970’s and 1980’s) combined with Muay Thai, Savate (French Kickboxing), Bando and Shooto.

We’ll show you the way to start building the your moves & having big fun from your first class. At Kensho you’ll learn the sweet science of boxing & kickboxing step by step. We break it down, motivate you & teach it like no where else.
