Martial arts are great for children! A psychological study found that children in martial arts have an increased sense of responsibility, a decrease in the willingness to take foolish risks, and a higher sense of self-esteem. This is why millions of parents are using martial arts to supplement their children’s education.
Martial arts are a fun, fulfilling workout for adults too! Our adult students really appreciate the differences between martial arts training and standard exercise programs. We’re proud to offer classes that help you get in shape, relieve stress, build confidence, learn lifesaving skills, and have fun with your family!
Since 2001, Jerry Hansman has been providing quality instruction in Karate and the martial arts in the Indianapolis/Carmel/Zionsville area.
We believe in great instruction to foster our student’s self-esteem by providing a challenging Martial Arts Program. We believe that in providing a safe environment in which to learn we will develop a sense of “family” within our school in which the development of the student is shared among the parents and instructors. We believe in teaching high standards of behavior, responsibility, ethics and citizenship.
Sensei Hansman has been training in Martial Arts for 44 years. He served honorably for eight years in the United States Marine Corps as a Military Policeman and also instructed U.S. Marines and foreign Army units Ma
rtial Arts. He was assigned to the Diplomatic Security Bureau of the United States Department of State and served at overseas post in Africa, South America, Europe and Asia. He served his community as a Police Officer for seven years and taught Close Quarters Combat for Law Enforcement agencies including the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
Sensei Hansman trains on the island of Okinawa, the birthplace of Karate and teaches his students true Okinawan Karate. They are an authentic Okinawan Karate Dojo teaching authentic Okinawan Karate. They are not a McDojo; selling belts and awarding Black Belts to children simply for showing up to class. Sensei Hansman knows that Karate is an Art and teaches it as such. He knows that an art of self-defense takes years of training to master and each movement requires thousands of repetitions to make a muscle memory. He also knows that in a Karate dojo, no one sits on the bench; everyone is a starter and participates. This is why he ensures that his students learn the true Art of Karate not the watered down “sport” that most schools pass off as Karate today.
So, if you are ready to learn the ancient art of Okinawan Karate, taught by someone who has trained with the Masters on Okinawa, don’t put it off, start today!
