My daughter has been taking lessons here for almost 3 years & loves it. The instructors are all fantastic & it's a great atmosphere. So glad we found this place!

My son Matthew has been training at RI Self Defense for 5 years. If you want REAL WORLD self defense for yourself or your child, this is the school for you. Dedicated, highly trained instructors at EVERY class. Very reasonable tuition, no contracts EVER. The owner, Mike, is a great guy and always has his students' best interest at heart. He loves what he does and it shows.

I can't brag enough about RI Self Defense Center! I began taking self defense classes a few months ago and absolutely love it! The classes are direct and focused on learning the strategies/moves needed to defend myself in various situations. With the growing number of violent crimes, these skills are essential to ensure a feeling of empowerment, confidence and safety. The classes are at a convenient time that can easily be attended after work. The gym itself is clean, organized and full of friendly people who are happy to help you learn and grow! I plan to continue to learn and develop my skills at RI Self Defense!

Excellent instructors. They take their time and make sure your child is ready to move on. No hyper focus on "next belt" but rather a focus on mastery of the skill. They work in groups and one on one as each child needs. Mike always makes it fun for the kids in varying ways and has a fantastic animated personality. Also, has top level staff/helpers as well. I feel fortunate it was nearby and we found this perfect dojo.

I love this place! I came here for their adult self-defense classes, and I am so happy I didi! Michael is an awesome instructor, and the group is very welcoming. I am not the most athletic or coordinated person, and i'm also very shy, but everyone quickly made me feel welcome and comfortable. If you want affordable self-defense classes that will walk you through real-life scenarios, this is the place for you!

Love Sensei Mike!!! Awesome mentor for children and young adults. He truly cares about all of his students. From karate kicks to confidence, he will help your child become a better person. RI Self-Defense Center also provides high level martial arts for adult men and women in a great environment.

I honestly can’t say enough about this gym. Amazing for our 5 year old. Excited to see all he will learn here!
