JKD/MMA

JKD (JEET KUNE DO)

JKD is the martial arts philosophy brought forth by Bruce Lee.  We use JKD to encourage traditional martial arts with creativity and innovative thinking.  JKD encompasses techniques from karate, tae kwon do, wing tzun kumg fu, and blocking system from kali. 

MMA (MIXED MARTIAL ARTS)

MMA uses modern martial art training methods which includes techniques from boxing, muay thai, savate, jiu jitsu, judo, and wrestling. 

Our unique ranking system is designed to keep integrity above all. 

 

The academy does not rank the student by periodic tests but by their day to day merits at home, in school, at the dojo, and finally skill acquisition.  The parents of each child are included into the ranking process. The first two ranking stripes needed for advancement are controlled by the parents.  It takes a village to raise a child and we hold true to this philosophy.

Our youth program is rich with history, science, and technique however we enforce discipline, develop respect for self and others, strengthen the mind, the body, the spirit and learn real Martial Science skills but have fun doing it.

P.E (PHYSICAL EDUCATION)

We established a program that works complimentary to the JKD / MMA that will strengthen the movement patterns cardio, and muscular strength.  

FIGHT CONDITIONING

This is where we drill the techniques learned on the JKD / MMA days.  The objective is to develop skill through repetition.

BATTLE GAMES
