At Kent Institute of Martial Art what truly matters is the experience of the individual
At the Kent Institute of Martial Art we view each student as an individual with their own talents, abilities, goals, and desires.
The Kent Institute of Martial Art serves as an oasis of self-discovery, an environment where the students become motivated to actively and enthusiastically participate in their own development and do so to the best of their ability.
Our goal isn't merely to instruct -- we work to inspire students to think for themselves and cultivate the tools and skills they need to become
well-rounded, liberated, creative martial artists.
Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and work in all sorts of professions, and each has their own reason for training. But they all have one thing in common; they're interested in exploring the potential of both their body and mind, developing greater self-knowledge, and enriching their life. We are here to serve those people.
We believe the goal of a true martial artist should be to fully actualize his or her potential as a human being – not simply physical potential, but intellectual and spiritual development as well.
We offer group classes, private one-on-one training, weaponry training, professional consultation, personal safety education programs and more.
"When a person comes to my class they may feel like a student, but when they leave I want them to feel like a martial artist, feeling glad to be a martial artist.
I believe there's a martial artist in each of us."
Chris Kent (Founder/Director)
If you would like to experience Jeet Kune Do and Filipino Kali/Escrima, we would be happy to arrange a time to meet with you to discuss training, and invite you to contact us by phone or email.
