Welcome to American Shaolin Kempo Concepts School of Martial Arts, also known as American Concepts Martial Arts, your neighborhood martial arts school and home of “Common Sense Self Defense.” American Concepts was founded in 1990 in Shrewsbury, MA by Phillip H. Pritchard, Jr. For over 20 years, it has been our goal to share the venerable art of American Shaolin Kempo style martial arts, and through this training, to improve the emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical condition of our students.

We offer a very unique martial arts training experience, striving to offer our students a balance of the best training in their martial art 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 extremely comfortable and welcoming environment.

With over 30 years of martial arts experience and many satisfied students, we have something to offer everyone, from in-depth training to one-time self defense workshops, we want to share with you the knowledge and wisdom of the martial arts that we have to offer. We thank you for your interest in our school and invite you to continue your tour through our website and come into the school for a visit.

“Learn the ways to preserve rather than destroy.
Avoid rather than check; check rather than hurt;
hurt rather than maim; maim rather than kill;
for all life is precious, nor can any be replaced."
