Cervizzi's Martial Arts Academy®
At Cervizzi’s, we have martial arts programs for all ages and fitness levels in the cities of North Reading, Andover, North Andover, Lynnfield, and Winthrop.
Our mission statement is to "provide personalized martial arts instruction to all students, regardless of ability, in an effort to increase self esteem and foster a positive belief system, allowing students not only to defend and protect themselves, but to achieve their goals and dreams."
Since 1995, the team at Cervizzi's Martial Arts Academy continues to take a personal interest in each and every student and family. It is our goal not to have a student simply attend a martial arts class, but to allow everyone to have a thought-provoking and enlightening experience each and every training session. While learning how to defend oneself is at the core of our mission, it is our responsibility to ensure that each student develops essential life skills in the areas of leadership, self empowerment, and public speaking, and also build self esteem and character. We focus on the big picture, and we know that our students will be equipped to achieve all of their goals and aspirations in the real world. We incorporate anti-bullying programs in our classes to help children deal with all types of situations. Important life lessons are discussed, such as how to be a good person. Martial arts is not just about punching and kicking — it encompasses so much more, and our program can make a difference for you and your child.

Karate classes and the amazing people at Cervizzi’s Martial Arts have been a constant in my son’s life, especially during this pandemic. He has been able to count on them every week, with the option to attend classes virtually from home or safely at the dojo. He is staying active, having fun, learning so much, and making connections - all so important, at every age! There aren’t proper words to express how grateful we feel to have Soke Paul, Shihan Kris, Sensei Jake, and Sensei Janice in our lives. From day one, they were so welcoming and made us feel right at home, like family. THANK YOU Cervizzi’s! - Joyce W.

“I would like to thank Soke Paul for introducing Martial Arts to a foster child that I have had in my custody for over five years. I started with Cervizzi’s Martial Arts introductory 6-week trial membership in February of 2021, during the pandemic to see if my child would enjoy it.
From the very first class he attended, he loved it! Even though Cervizzi’s offered virtual or in-person classes, my child chose to always attend in-person. I have noticed a significant change in him. He has made gains in so many areas, such as being more mature, respectful, attentive, having self-control of his emotions, and more confident with himself. He is always looking forward to attending his next class and learning something new.
I am very grateful that Soke Paul gave him this opportunity and can’t express how grateful I am for such a GREAT team!
I want to shout out a BIG thank you to Soke Paul, Shihan Kris, Sensei Jake and Sensei Janice for always being compassionate, patient and welcoming!
I highly recommend any parent/guardian to enroll their child at Cervizzi’s Martial Arts! Thank you!

Ever since I was a young boy, I wanted to train in the martial arts to gain confidence and not be afraid of others who were intimidating to me. I'm so grateful to have landed at Cervizzi's Martial Arts Academy. The instructors are knowledgeable, passionate and show that they care deeply for their students. Having this outlet, whether it's in person or via zoom sessions, keeps me active and healthy. In mind, body and spirit. It's a journey and one that you wont regret starting once you've done so. The workouts will challenge you physically in a good way. The material is not meant to just be memorized, but understood. They take the time to explain the application of the techniques and how to apply them in different situations against different sized opponents. I could write a book on all that you'd learn. Don't take my word for it. Come check it out for yourself.
