What Merrick Locals Are Saying...

Feels good when achieving the impossible things that are put in front of me. Who would've thought I was be an orange belt in Jiu-jitsu let alone be 53 and still being able to do things with my body weight. But here I am almost 4 years and doing it. I owe alot of that to the best Shihan around Jeff Lovering whose kind, understanding and always good at making you feel comfortable and laughing when you mix up your right and lefts. Lol. Thank you Shihan for being amazing person and friend.

Goshinkan dojo, a place where martial arts are taught by strengthening mind and body and never forgetting the importance of the heart! I can't stress enough how important it is to find a dojo with instructors who are balanced in their teaching style, and intuitive to their students learning ability. If you're looking for a great school that will help you grow in the art, build confidence and cultivate Camaraderie, Goshinkan is a place you should be.

One of the best dojo's on Long Island! The sensei's are friendly and enjoy teaching martial arts. I wouldnt go anywhere else for my daughter. We even booked a birthday party here for her. She cant wait to show off her skills to her friends!

Got Questions? We Got Answers

My child isn't athletic. Can he/she still participate in martial arts?

Absolutely. Martial Arts teaches kids to be coordinated, flexible and strong. Kids who don't naturally have these qualities develop them. Kids who do have these qualities develop them even more.

Are these Martial Arts classes fun?

Yes! After all, these are children we're dealing with here. And kids love their fun. We do a variety of games and activities that have kids laughing and smiling. We work hard here - but we play just as hard.

Can Martial Arts cause injury?

Because we place such a huge focus on safety and injury prevention, we're proud to say that injuries are very few and far between with our program. In fact, because Martial Arts gets you in great shape, and makes you strong and flexible, people often see LESS injuries in their lives.

Do you have to be in good shape to take Martial Arts?

Not at all! In fact, many people use martial arts as a way to get in good shape. They come to us out of shape, and quickly become athletic and limber.

Is Martial Arts violent?

No! Because self-defense technique is taught in Martial Arts, it's often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind Martial Arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you'll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

What's a good age for a child to start Martial Arts?

Honestly, practically every age is a good age to start! We have young children, as well as teenagers. We also have specific programs for adults. So no matter what age - we've got you covered.
