To establish a real, Practical & powerful karate school in Billerica based not only on the best traditions of the Martial arts and true spirit of karate, but also on its genuine understanding and practical, ultra efficient, self defense application for the modern world..


Zanshin Kenjutsu Kenpo Karate is a Koryu (traditional) martial art system. It combines the traditional and modern disciplines of Kenpo, Kenjutsu, Shotokan and San Soo Kung Fu Karate. Zanshin Kenjutsu Kenpo Karate seeks to blend these disciplines and maintain the integrity of Nick Cerio’s Kenpo Karate and to pass the teachings of Professor Cerio on to new generations of martial arts students. Professor Cerio was an admirer of Shotokan Karate and in the development of his own uniquely powerful system of Kenpo drew upon many of the strengths of Shotokan while maintaining the fluidity, speed and devastating effectiveness of the art of Kenpo. Zanshin Kenjutsu Kenpo Karate maintains the blend of Shotokan’s linear power along with the speed and ferocity of Kenpo that Professor Cerio developed.

  • People who continue to practice the martial arts for prolonged periods are different from the general populace in these ways: they have a lower level of anxiety; an increased sense of responsibility; they are less likely to be radical; they have an increased level of self-esteem; and they are more socially intelligent.
