Alchemy school of Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) of Smithtown's Head Instructor Steven Kasten)

I began my training at the very young age of 4 and was able to get a jump start on the discipline and other characteristics I would need to carry myself through life.

I first started in the style of shaolin kempo, where the mysticism of tradition martial arts sparked an interest in the spirtual side of the art. This soon led to his passionate discipline for yoga where soon after I became a certified instructor under sri yogi hari. I would take those teachings to a whole new level where not only could I teach my students to properly defend themselves, but also provide the proper education on how to keep a strong mind and body.

While on my long path of passing knowledge from student to student, my craving to keep pushing my own martial arts training and fitness level grew stronger. This thirst for knowledge was satisfied through my current passion of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

I'm now an active Brazilian jiu jitsu competitor and fitness enthusiast with multiple certifications and achievements. I try and take my knowledge from inside and outside the classroom to teach my students how to live a healthy life style, and provide them with a competitive environment where everyone can learn through hard work.
