Roshankish Martial Arts opened in Medford, Massachusetts as a Tae Kwon Do school, and soon expanded to adopt a variety of styles to provide students with well rounded martial arts backgrounds.

Roshankish Adults classes focus on building skills, instincts and muscle memory, as well as fitness. Roshankish Kids programs focus on teaching discipline, respect, hard work and the ability to make good decisions on their own.

“A lot of people think when you take martial arts, it’s going to be all about fighting, but we’re not promoting fighting, we’re promoting situational awareness, how to defend yourself and avoid fighting — if anything — but it’s mostly for health, getting in shape and making the right decisions.”

Roshankish Martial Arts is located 10 minutes outside of Boston, Massachusetts. The Medford location is a spacious 8,000 square foot facility that includes a mixed martial arts gym complete with a boxing ring.
