We are committed to establishing measurable results physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially. We are also dedicated to providing every student with the most positive training atmosphere possible.

The Training Structure is based dealing with street situations:

  • Free Fighting Self Defense: Teaches confrontations of street attacks.
  • Stand up Self Defense: Teaches confrontation and self-defense from grabs, weapons and law enforcement tactics.

Our Student Creed is to build our mind and body as one, to respect one another, to obtain total awareness, and to never fight for selfish ends but develop might for right.
