Hello, I am Ben Menzinger, owner of New England Martial Arts (NEMA). I have practiced and taught martial arts for most of my life. When I opened my own school in 2002, I wanted to teach all the useful techniques I learned over the years from Tae Kwon Do, Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, and Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, low-key environment. Join us and let it have the life-changing effect it had on me and my students in terms of fitness, self-defense, confidence, and happiness!

Benefits Of Martial Arts Training
    1 / 3

    One of the most obvious benefits of Martial Arts is physical fitness. Martial arts training will improve a child's cardiovascular fitness, strength, balance, reflexes, agility, coordination, and flexibility. In addition, we incorporate basic strength & conditioning (Jumping Jacks, Wind Sprints, Push ups, pull ups, planks, back raises, wall sits, stretching, etc.) into every single class we teach.


    In our unique and innovative adults class, you will learn how to defend your self and your family in almost any situation. And unlike any other form of exercise, with martial arts you learn potentially life-saving self-defense skills at the same time you are getting in shape.


    Teenage years are some of the hardest times in one’s life in terms of socializing. Nowadays, one of the biggest problems in schools is bullying that happens between peers. During formative years, such as your teens, it is very important not to fall victim to bullying. The scars left by these horrific experiences can affect a person for many years to come.

    Through martial arts, teenagers learn how to defend themselves and build their self-confidence. Through the self-defense training that comes with martial arts, children can learn to stand up for themselves and deal with bullies in a non-violent way. This self-confidence allows children to take control of their lives and ensures that they won’t fall victim to this terrible epidemic.

"I highly recommend New England Martial Arts. As a former student I can say it’s a great school and a friendly environment the Owner/Instructor Ben is an amazing teacher as well as friend and a very down to earth and knowledgeable guy. I have nothing but great things to say about him and his school! I wish I wasn’t so busy and still had the spare time to attend classes." –Stephen C. Stenstrom

"This is an amazing School! I have learned so much and recommend it to everyone!!!!!" –Stefanos Kempouris
"Great school!. The instructor is great with kids and they learn a bunch of styles like boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Jiu Jitsu and Tae Kwon Do. The adults classes are also great. They break technique down very well and the atmosphere is very low key. So It's a very comfortable place to train." –Mat M.
"Best MMA training! I tried other martial arts, but I've learned more at NEMA in Stoughton than anywhere else. Working with Ben (teacher/instructor) has been a great experience filled with personal attention, patience, expertise, and laughter. Everyone in the school is friendly and helpful. Classes (which are never too large) are beginner-friendly for newcomers and challenging for more advanced students. There's also plenty of quality training equipment to use in class. I continue to enjoy practicing MMA, which includes many different styles of fighting (striking/blocking/groundwork/sparring and more) incorporated into one discipline, so there's always more to learn. Ben's approach to MMA includes mastering basic techniques in a low-stress environment, perfect for people who like to go at any pace, have support throughout, and enjoy a fun yet serious-about-learning setting. A very professional school... Highly recommended!" –Mike Piran
"I've studied a dozen martial arts on 3 continents and I can say with confidence they run a top notch program here. They're still one of my main reference points of my training. Good people, great atmosphere, professional instruction. Trust me, go, it's worth it." –Joe Gaylord
