Classes that fit your schedule

At Varasconi School of Self Defense, we want you to learn at your own pace. We offer several convenient class times for you. You can learn at your leisure and there is no pressure. Our goal is to teach you self-defense and impart knowledge of martial arts. Check our schedule to find a time that fits right for you.

Absolutely no testing fees

Too many dojos try to promote you quickly so they can cash their checks, regardless if you've even made progress. Here in Varasconi School of Self Defense, belt tests are a regular part of our scheduled classes. So you'll never be charged a separate fee.

Track your progress and growth

We have established a belt system that will reflect your growth within Hamzy's Ketsu-Ka Karate. Every new student starts off as a white belt. Once you pass your test, you can progress to yellow, green, and purple belt. You can then continue to advance from brown to black belts if you choose.


Each student's progress is unique and is a reflection of the time and interest of the art. Getting a black belt may not be right for everybody. Here you will set and achieve your own goals.

We are Bristol, CT's longest running dojo. We have the knowledge and the skills to teach you self-defense.
