Kohler Elite Karate Owner

Hi, I’m Rich Kohler.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 1995, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Glastonbury by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

WHAT IS KARATE

Karate is the style of martial arts practiced by Kohler Elite Karate students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: STUDENTS & PARENTS LOVE MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!

From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!
