Adult Mixed Martial Arts, Jeet Kune Do concept of training in multiple disciplines: Muay Thai (Thai Kickboxing), Savate (French Kickboxing), Boxing, Jun Fan Gung Fu, Kali, Silat, Grappling, combined with functional fitness, conditioning and flexibility. Learn how to drive your body in a martial way. Learn to be efficient in all ranges of combat, from long-range, medium range, close range, trapping and grappling range, take-downs and off-balancing, ground fighting, submission locking and breaking. Be able to transition seamlessly between all ranges of combat, with weapons or without.
In order to be a complete martial artist, one must develop certain attributes. The Mixed Martial Arts Class is designed to teach you how to effectively drive the human body in a martial way. Although it is free of any one style, in order to learn one must have some point of reference. Hence goes the saying, “learn the principle, practice the principle, dissolve the principle.”
During your training, all three stages are necessary. But without having a solid piece to chip away at, you have nothing to sculpt. Empty your cup and trust your instructors.
First Line Of Defense—Footwork
Our footwork is derived from Savate, Muay Thai, Jun Fan, Kali, Silat, and Boxing, which comprises your mobility system. If you are not moving, you are a sitting duck.
Second Line Of Defense—Upper Body Evasion
Pulling from various arts, your bob and weave game has to be solid. Your upper body muscles have to become developed in order to move like a snake, spineless.
Third Line Of Defense—Active Blocking, Trapping & Destructing
In combat you will at times need to efficiently block, deflect, parry, or ride your opponent’s blows. Through extensive research, my teachers and I have borrowed from many different arts to give our students sets of tools to choose from. During your clash with an opponent, opportunities arise when an environment is provided to trap your opponent’s limbs, or to destruct them at will, or all by itself (reflex). Our trapping is from Kali, Silat, Jun Fan Gung Fu, which has its roots in Wing Chun. Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is a concept and not an art. Our whole program is Jeet Kune Do, hence the name, The Way of No Way—using no way as way and having no limitation as limitation.
Fourth Line Of Defense—Your Body
Conditioning and learning how to take hits.
In order to move your body effectively, a martial artist needs to develop flexibility, agility and conditioning. Our classes are longer than the average martial arts class because we place importance on teaching/educating and guiding our students through an eclectic way of properly stretching, cardiovascular and other forms of conditioning and rehabilitating our temple, the human body.
