Wondering how to choose?
Interested in learning more?
We have credentials.
Black Bear Traditional Martial Arts Center is the ONLY dojo in the Southeastern CT/RI area with certification by the Japanese government and direct lineage to Okinawa and Japan.
We are authentic.
We only teach traditional, legitimate Okinawan and Japanese martial arts. No gymnastics.
Our students stay with us because they value our instructors and their fellow students. Not because of a signature on a paper.
Our instructors rock.
All of our instructors are internationally recognized and ranked, not only by Ahagon Hanshi, but through the Dai Nippon Butoku Kai as well.
We are a destination.
We are the Shibu (Head) dojo on the East Coast for Reihokan Shorin-Ryu and we report directly to Naonobu Ahagon, Hanshi in Naha, Okinawa, Japan.
You are our family.
We are a family-run business, from the front desk to the mat. We offer family discounts and classes for all ages with convenient scheduling 6 days per week. We care about each student and their families because everyone is important to our community.
We have a great facility.
With 2 fully-functioning dojo, 3 seating areas, an indoor archery facility, and a large parking lot, we have more than enough room.
We teach the good stuff.
Our programs focus on building confidence, fitness and self-discipline, but that is just the beginning!
