Adult martial arts program
Adult instruction in the martial arts is available to students of (approximately) 13 years of age and upward.
The Adult instructional program is divided into two courses, with the most urgently necessary and effective techniques arranged so that they are taught earliest in order to equip an adult person with the ability to defend against physical aggression.
Fundamentals: The cycle that takes a committed student from the first rank to the second is entitled "The Fundamentals of Defense." This class emphasizes engaging an aggressor and taking the fight to the ground, where the goal will be to exhaust and then disable that person. There will be a great deal of close-body contact in all of our classes, and especially so during this course; students must be prepared for this kind of interaction with their partners. Using leverage and sound strategy, students will be equipped with the skills to overcome an unskilled, unarmed attacker.
Advanced: The "advanced" class, is open to all students who want to expand their training beyond what is offered in the Fundamentals course cycle. With an emphasis on effective striking, sourced from Karate, Muy-Thai and Boxing, along with throwing and takedowns sourced from Judo and Western Freestyle Wrestling, the advanced class pursues training under the assumption that a student is confronting a trained opponent.
