Samurai Sensei

Martial Arts Credentials

Sensei Ken Hayashi, has over 25 years of martial art experience. He currently holds 4 separate black belts including 2nd Degree Wado Ryu Karate, 1st Degree Hapkido, 1st Degree WTF Tae Kwon Do and 1st Degree Ho Shin Moo Do.


He had instructed up to 150 students every week at the World renowned International Institute of Martial Arts (aka IIMA) located in San Diego, CA.


His classes included teaching the 5-8 year old Beginner Sparring classes (Class size 40-50 students). The emphasis on this class was honing ‘Listening Skills’ and ‘Safety’. Since all students are beginners, this is where students are taught to be able to follow specific instructions accurately, so that the students do not end up injuring each other and learn to become comfortable with sparring.


Hayashi also instructed the 9-13 year old Medium-Advanced Sparring classes (Class size 20-30 students). The emphasis on this class was ‘Discipline’ and learning ‘Control’. Although the sparring contact became much harder and eventually increases to medium to full contact, students are still instructed to ‘Respect’ each other as a fellow martial artist and learned how to control their fighting contact. This class is where students are introduced to competition point fighting, full contact practical self-defense, dealing with bullies and the real application of the martial arts in at school and life.


All of his classes were conducted where each parent was encouraged to observe the classes from the enclosed Parent Observation Seating Area.

Child Development Credentials

Hayashi has 20+ years training in Child, Personal Development and Neuro Linguistic Programming by the world renowned Tony Robbins and Robbins Foundation. He has worked with thousands of parents in assisting children, teens and young adults in the areas of focus, health, confidence and developing into maturity. His work includes adjusting to school environment, communicating with other students, becoming a leader at school, responsibilities in the home, respecting their parents and excelling in school. He takes a “No Excuse” approach to helping parents direct their own children on succeeding in school and life.

Takeshi Academy

Ages 5 to 12



Often parents complain that their child does not respect them, they do not do what they’re told, they are disinterested in school and/or other activities, they don’t help around the house, they are constantly fighting with their siblings and not listening whenever they ask them the simplest of tasks. However, oftentimes this all has to do with the foundation of respect, honor, and discipline.



If that is not being taught at home, which oftentimes it never is with today’s hectic schedules, any martial art program is where a Sensei/Master is necessary to be able to assist the parents in instilling these qualities to the child itself. A very ‘Asian’ philosophy that is recognized on the surface as something admired, yet politically incorrect to point out that this is something that parents welcome as an accepted practice from the East.



In the public school system, this is often frowned upon. However today, more and more American parents are more helpless from having children with the ‘Entitlement’ mentality. That the child needs to be served by the teachers, government and their parents; and tiptoeing around them constantly to entertain them around the broken school system that allows children to fail, then the child quickly blames everyone else for failures.



This program will show your child to respect you, for all the hard work that you have done up until now to give your child the best possibility for future success. And for them to finally recognize your efforts and to appreciate everything that you have done up to this point.

When it comes to discipline, there are many factors wherein people have a description of what they believe is discipline. Oftentimes, when it comes to understanding and becoming a master of advanced techniques is just where discipline becomes an important factor. This is where the student learns to be disciplined enough to master the basics.



This training and working with the Sensei, the student soon becomes a Senpai where they have mastered the basic techniques so much that they have acquired the ability to teach and instruct other new students to the basics themselves.


In this stage of their life, the student has not only know the basics, they are able to teach the basics and have moved on to the stage where they are now learning advanced techniques and are able to apply advanced techniques in various circumstances and situations. They are now an advanced student because they have become proficient at the basics and the master can actively observe them actively applying the basics in their everyday life as well as their martial arts.




Students are taught in how to effectively communicate with academic instructors, parents, fellow students, friends, different social groups, bullies and females. This is where the student is introduced to the concept of the understanding importance of social interactions, status and ability to influence others is equal to or often times more important than intelligent, book smart, talent and skill. Students are taught step by step communication methods along with reading materials and homework to apply these techniques to their regular environment outside the dojo.
