Love the teacher, the disciple and the philosophy. It is way above other places I have seen. Good job Sensei Kyoshi.
I have met Kyoshi back in 2006. His teachings helped me develop mental and physical agility. Techniques I have learned in his dojo improved my motor skills, eye hand coordination, asymmetrical hand to hand combat in narrow spaces and were vital in my years in military. Polander Academy is a place where you are always welcome, place of knowledge and respect, place where people share their skills with passion and attention to details.
Before I was at Polander Academy, I was part of a karate program that was good at first, but after two years I felt like the classes were getting worse and worse. Using yelp, I looked around for programs in my area and found three or four. After looking at all of them, I chose Polander Academy. They have classes for everyone over the age of three, Little Dragons for kids 3 who are years old to kids who are 4 years old, Dragons at 5 - 7, Tigers at 8 - 12 or so, and the adult class for everyone 13 years old and up. At Polander academy, the style of Ryu-Te Kempo Karate is taught, meaning "empty hand." This means that you will learn how to defend yourself without the use of weapons such as the Bow Staff and the Jo Staff, although you can learn both of these weapons. The first thing you will typically learn here is the defense against the right hand punch, with more and more advanced techniques taught to you the further you progress in the belt system. Sparring class is also offered and you are encouraged to join, with it helping with your self defence. The teachers know the best way to help you when you are stuck on a form and are very helpful.
