Grandmaster Dennis Tosten founded the first Amerikick in 1967 and has since taught several champion fighters, police officers, and everyday students karate and self-defense. Today, the lauded chain teaches fitness classes inspired by martial arts, including cardio kickboxing in six states. Each location upholds a curriculum that blends Chinese and Japanese martial-arts styles—including kenpo and tae kwon do—with modern self-defense strategies, further updating traditional practices by eschewing uniforms and belts for casual workout gear. Having attained certification in teaching kickboxing from the National Association of Professional Martial Artists, Amerikick's seasoned instructors also each possess black belts in karate, a rank as difficult to attain as the snake charmer's belt of live cobras.

Q&A with the External Affairs Coordinator

What special training do you or your staff have?
BLDG 92 staff know the ins and outs of our exhibits as well as local area highlights. For groups of eight or more with advanced reservation, staff can lead visitors on a 45-minute private guided exhibit tour where they'll reveal all of the center's highlights [for a] suggested donation of $5 per person.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?
The Today's Yard gallery is an enjoyable demonstration of the astonishing array of products and services offered by the businesses who took up the massive buildings and infrastructure passed on by the Navy. Video accounts by a few of these entrepreneurs demonstrate the Yard's trajectory: a journey reinforced by our latest rotating exhibit Making it in NYC: The Era of New Manufacturing.
