My children ( ages 7 and 10) started with the Empower family 2 years ago, and it has been such a joy to watch them grow and gain confidence in everything they do. I can't say enough about how much thet adore all the instructors and peers alike. More...
My son has been practicing karate here for 6-7 years now. Sensei Dean has become a positive and valuable role model and figure in his life. He has had made some great friends, had lots of fun and is accomplishing goals every year! If you are interested in martial arts for yourself or your child you should definitely check them out.

Empower has been amazing for our son and our whole family! Sensei Dean and Miss Sarah-Beth are AMAZING people and full of knowledge about life and martial arts. The family atmosphere and kids activities beyond karate are so great! More...
My son has been going to empower martial arts since he was five years old. He is now 11, and we couldn't be happier with them. Sensei Dean Mace and Miss Sarah-Beth are both compassionate and tough at the same time. They are both excellent teachers, and my boy has learned a lot, not just about martial arts, but about respect, focus, self confidence and the right way to live life. They are excellent role models, and no one can have too many good role models. I thank them both for being such a wonderful part of our lives for all these years and many to come. More...
I started studying at Empower when I was 23 years old. I can’t say enough kind things about the school and the instructors. Finding an art that teaches respect, discipline, hard work, success and failure is so hard nowadays in a world of instant gratification. I’ve since stopped studying karate because I’ve gotten married and had a baby and life got in the way. I think about Empower all the time and how much I miss the sport but most of all the people and community. I can’t wait until my son is old enough to start on his karate journey. There is no other school I’d want him to go to. More...
An amazing place for children to adults. The instructors are very approachable, friendly, caring, and respectful making for a fun educational class.
Our three girls went to Empower Martial Arts for 10 years. It is a big part of who they are today and even though they don’t go anymore they can still walk in and it feels like family. Empower will always be a part of our family. Much appreciation to Sensei Dean and staff. More...
EMA is one of the very best places to train. Its not just about kicking and punching, its about teaching respect by being respectful. Building character through time and patience. Attaining goals and knowing that not everything is instantaneous. And learning and goals are based on the individual. I am an instructor at Empower but I am also still a black belt student in the evening class. Learning continues even for the instructors!!! More...
Empower Martial Arts is absolutely amazing!! My son started here about 3 weeks ago and immediately loved it! The Sensei and the instructors are so respectful and very patient! Best place ever!
Wonderful place for people of all ages. My kids (ages 4 &6) LOVE it! So good with kids!
It's an amazing place to watch you or kid grow up, Sensei Dean is an amazing teacher.

The awesome teamwork from the instructors made me so proud when my wife and I flew from Washington state to witness the black belt initiation of my nephew Gabe Northrop. And to see my other nephew Jacob Northrop get a "belt-up". Good job! More...
This program is great for girls and boys of all ages. Sensei Dean has a great teaching style that motivates and keeps kids very focused. He has built a wonderful program!! PS: Miss Sarah Beth is great too!! More...
Empower is an amazing community of instructors and members. I'm happy that I picked this school for my son to study at 5 years ago. The journey has been amazing . H
Absolutely love everything about this school! My son is so comfortable and looks forward to class every week. Everyone is so patient and kind! I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else! More...
We tried karate at another location with my 1st son a few years ago, and assumed karate wasn't a good fit for him. But now both our sons are at Empower Martial Arts. Not only do they love it, we KNOW it's a great fit. They have learned so much is a short time. Thank you so much, Sensei Dean! More...
Would never go anywhere else....amazing school

Sensei Dean is an excellent teacher and a caring person who respects all of his students. The beautiful dojo is in Newton, NH.
When you choose to practice at Empower, you become part of the family. Learn together, grow together.
Great sensei, plenty of friendly black belts, I love it.
