About Us

Established 1988

 The Andover branch of Yang's Martial Arts Association (Yang's Andover) was formed in 1988 and has been offering quality instruction in traditional Chinese martial arts.

Yang's Andover was established by Alex Kiesel, one of Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming's first disciples. Mr. Kiesel begin his Martial Arts training 1978 in Kenpo Karate then in 1982 begin studying under Dr. Yang Jwing-Ming. After achieving Instructor level in 1986 under Dr. Yang, Mr. Kiesel open his first location on Haverhill Street (Rte. 133) in Andover, MA.

Over the years, Yang's Andover expanded its programing and locations. On September 30, 2020, Yang's Andover closed due to the insurmountable challenges created by COVID.

We are pleased to announce our programs will be offered in temporary location at 34 Park Street, Andover inside Andover Fitbody Bootcamp.

Our goal is to eventually find a 1,500 to 3,000 SF home to call our own again soon!
