Neil Stone's Karate Academy

Southern New Hampshire's Only Private Martial Arts Academy

About


Neil Stone's Karate Academy is the area's only private martial arts academy, and we have proudly served Hollis, New Hampshire, and the surrounding community for over a decade. Our dojo integrates the traditional Okinawan techniques of Uechi-Ryu karate with modern teaching styles and principles of study, not only to enhance students' practice of the martial arts, but to heighten the personal and overall lives of everybody who enters our school.

Sensei Neil Stone's twenty-five years of teaching experience have allowed us to make NSKA into a full character development center, while providing expert instruction in traditional Japanese martial arts. We also offer seminars, demonstrations, classroom presentations and special initiatives for our students, and we go above and beyond to help enhance every aspect of our students' lives.
