Get confident in your safety
Steiner Academy of Martial Arts is committed to the highest quality martial arts instruction for your entire family. Research shows that developing the physical skills of self-defense is beneficial to both you and your children by improving self-confidence, as well as self-control. These are incredibly valuable skills in school, at work and on the street, if necessary.
Our Academy teaches a system of Martial Arts known as Kempo in Japanese, or Chuan’Fa in Chinese. The Art of Kempo has a long and colorful history that originated in China and encompasses Hawaii, Japan and Okinawa. The word Kempo means “Fist Method”, or “The Way of the Fist”. The teachers of ancient China classified three categories of fighting: striking (chuan’fa), grappling (shuai jiao) and joint-locking (qin na). Although Kempo is named for one of these, we teach methods that deal with all three disciplines in order for students to be effective at defending themselves from many types of attack.
Classes are offered based upon the age of the student: Children 3-14, and Advanced Youth/Adults. We believe that students of all ranks and abilities should train together – beginners and advanced students train together. This provides an excellent example for the beginners, and an opportunity to learn leadership and humility for the advanced students. It also builds friendships and camaraderie unlike many other activities. Our mission is to help students become even better citizens of the world.
The Academy is the cleanest, safest, and most welcoming in the Omaha area. We encourage you to come in and participate in a class to determine if Kempo is right for you or your family. Please visit our New prospects for more info.
