VIRTUAL KARATE CLUB

Hello, my name is Adam Rylski and I’m the owner and chief instructor of the Assembly of the Martial Arts Academy. We’ve been established since 1991, and have 30+ programs throughout New Haven and Fairfield County. I’ve been contacted by a number of towns and recreation organizations over the last few weeks asking if I could provide them with a means for children and families to get up and moving during this time, free of charge. 

I began recording instructional videos and created the YouTube channel, Dragonpower91. It has a wealth of opportunities for children and families to get active while home, and also experience Martial Arts. I’m happy to share this information with you, and please feel free to share this through your town or organization’s websites and/or social media. Here is the information I’ve provided about the YouTube channel…

 

Dragonpower91: You can jump right into Martial Arts training just by tuning into our YouTube channel, Dragonpower91. While at home, we’ve been creating videos to demonstrate a variety of martial arts routines, techniques, activities, and more! In addition, we’ve gathered videos from some of our previous classes, belt exams, tournaments, and women’s self-defense workshops. Join us from our home to yours- it’s free and it’s fun!

 

Be sure to check out the channel! There’s something on there for everyone, from ages 3 to adult. What an active and creative outlet! Subscribe to Dragonpower91 and share the channel with your family and friends! We are continuously adding videos, so check back often. Stay strong, be positive, and keep moving!
