KSK Martial Arts

    I began my experience training with Kent Nelson at his school, KSK Martial Arts, by participating in the school's 2 part Women's Self Defense classes. I was unsure what to expect, but found the experience to be empowering and fun. Kent Nelson and his staff were clearly very knowledgeable, great teachers, and made me feel comfortable. I enjoyed the self defense classes so much that I began taking MMA-JKD at KSK Martial Arts. It was an intimidating thing for me to do, as I was a woman who had never participated in any sort of martial arts training before. And as a newbie I found training at KSK to be something hugely enjoyable. I have now been a student at KSK for a year. I always look forward to class and find the methods used to train students to be inclusive, informative, practical, and done in a manner that is low-pressure, focused on detail, and so much fun that I always leave class exhilarated having learned new things while getting a pretty good workout as well! It’s a fantastic facility, led by a very knowledgeable and engaging teacher that is Guro Kent Nelson. I am so happy to be training at KSK and look forward to discovering where training at KSK Martial Arts will take me. I have learned so much and have so much more to learn from Guro Kent and the rest of the KSK folks! Go there! Try it out!

    Sensei Miles Bennett possesses a plethora of martial arts and self defense knowledge. His teaching never becomes stale. I highly recommend his instruction.

    Ryan is a wonderful Taichi instructor and person. I had him for Taichi class for almost two years now. He knows his stuff very well, he often tells us the interesting stories about Taichi and Chinese culture. From my experiences, he is really good at authentic Tai Chi--both advanced moves and philosophies. His personality is fun, extremely clear and caring. The handouts of Taichi theory are very interesting to read. He will help you with anything about Taichi and Qigong. His class starts with Qigong breath and stretch, which involve certain postures and gentle movements with mental focus, breathing, and relaxation. It really helps me to get ready for Taichi. I like that it's the complete 24 forms broken down into each part that I feel confident in learning Tai Chi properly. It is very helpful in co-ordination my hand and arm movements with my steps. He takes a lot of time explaining and demonstrating each part of forms. He gives a clear and detailed explanation of every movement, and the application of martial art. The movements can be adapted or practiced while walking, standing, or sitting. In contrast to qi gong, tai chi movements, if practiced quickly, can be a form of combat and self-defense. He is the greatest Taichi instructor; I will continue Taichi class with him to reduce my back pain, and also improve my balance and stability. For me, It is really improve the quality of my life and mood.

    Mr. Zorn is not only very knowledgeable about his subject matter, but also a great teacher. Very professional as well. I would reccomend his instruction to anyone desiring more insight into defensive stratagems, tactics, and combatives.
