“Ki Martial Arts is a wonderful dojo and an extension of what we try to teach our children at home, namely confidence, team building, respect, discipline, and in general how to be good, peaceful citizens. Sensei Vladimir has a special way with children, exercising the right amount of joviality, coaching, and firmness. Anastasia has been training with him since she is 3 and is very proud of her brown belt. She enjoys earning stripes to show her accomplishments towards new belt levels and also looks forward to earning star cards for good behaviors, which culminate in trophies! We love when Sensei lets us work out with our children, as an extension of our familial bonding while learning the lifelong skill of how to be healthy. Both he and his lovely wife Rachel create a communal atmosphere by also offering holiday celebrations, which are a delight for the kids and parents alike. All of the Sempais also take great care to instruct the children appropriately. I couldn’t think of a better place for my daughter to train. If you are considering martial arts for your child, look no further than Ki Martial Arts USA – Krav Maga Westchester.”

“Sensei Vladimir at Ki Martial Arts knows every child’s name and conducts every class with the perfect balance of discipline and fun. My 7 year old son loves going to class. I asked him what he liked most and he said he liked learning how to defend himself. He knows that Sensei really cares about him and wants him to do better. He is very proud of his belt and likes all the kids in his class. He has learned how to count to ten in Japanese and how to focus. The program rewards consistent attendance and builds confidence. I hope to see my son become a Black Belt at Ki!”

I am currently training under him in the Krav Maga discipline at Ki Martial Arts. Sensei Zolottev has a deep understanding of the physical, mental, and spiritual forms of martial arts. He provides his students with his keen and insightful philosophy as a key component of his training method. Sensei Zolottev’s mastery of several martial arts, his training ethic, and constructive attitude make him an extremely effective instructor.”

Sensei Vladimir is a great teacher in every sense of the word. Even in a group lesson he gets to the ” core” of each individual student. He is exceptionally good with kids of all ages as well as with older student( like me). I am an avid tennis player and I tried everything in cross training including running, Pilates and yoga. Krav Maga with Sensei Vladimir is by far the best ” core” workout with the added advantage of possibly saving your life or that of a loved one some day. It’s also a lot of fun.
