We are Woman Owned!

360 Defense Middletown is owned and operated by Kayla Stomberg.


I have been training in Martial Arts since I was 4 years old, teaching since 2007 and began full time in 2011 at 360 Defense Norwich under Charlie McShane. In 2013 I graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Sport and Leisure Management and a minor in Business Administration. 

360 Defense is a woman-instructed self-defense  school with women friendly classes! It can be intimidating walking into a typically "male-dominated activity" But you won't find any egos here. We are a friendly, welcoming, inclusive environment. Every student that walks through the door is doing so for personal growth and improvement! Personally, Krav Maga and Kickboxing has really empowered me and I hope it can do the same for you. 

To the parents out there - I have a 5 year old and a newborn! I know how hard it can be to try and find time to exercise and do something for yourself! There is plenty of space here for your children to sit and watch while you are training.
