Welcome to American Concepts, your neighborhood martial arts school and home of “Common Sense Self-Defense.” American Concepts was founded in 1990 in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts by Phillip H. Pritchard, Jr. We offer a very unique martial arts training experience, striving to offer our students a balance of the best training in their martial arts studies while maintaining a fun, accepting, and positive experience to enrich their lives and embrace their individual strengths. We believe that our teaching style, the atmosphere of our school, and our family friendly pay-as-you-go system set us apart from other martial arts schools and result in an exceptionally comfortable and welcoming environment. With more than 40 years of martial arts experience and many satisfied students, we have something to offer everyone. From in-depth training in the art of American Shaolin Kempo Martial Arts, to one-time self-defense workshops, we want to share the knowledge and wisdom of the martial arts. In addition to learning to protect oneself, students experience improved emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical condition. We thank you for your interest in our dojo and invite you to continue your tour through our website and we welcome you to come in to the dojo to observe and/or try a class.
