Martial arts Training

Martial arts teaches confidence and discipline. It helps individuals of all ages learn to improve their mind, body, and character.

Through practice improvements are observed in motor skills, balance, coordination, and awareness of what's happening around you.  

Through training the body is conditioned for improvements in strength, endurance, power, and speed.  

At all levels students learn hand-t0-hand fighting and weapons-based fighting. As students progress they learn to integrate skills in dynamic environments and against multiple opponents.

Self-Defense

Self-Defense

Learning to protect yourself with physical contact is a last resort that most do not truly want to do. I teach the ABCs of self-defense, which help individuals use their greatest weapon first. Their mind. Students learn mental strategies as well as physical strategies and techniques to protect themselves, and those around them. Techniques include hand-to-hand, and defense and disarming of weapons.

Training can be conducted one-on-one or in group settings. 

Self-Defense sessions are by appointment only.

Wing Chun for Seniors

Wing Chun for Seniors

Wing Chun is a southern Chinese Kung Fu that emphasizes relaxation and flexibility while maintaining strength for self-defense, much like the flexibility of bamboo.  The soft wholesome force of Wing Chun utilizes techniques in a relaxed manner, by training physical, mental, breathing, energy and force. 

During class we practice the slow controlled forms of Wing Chun; Siu Nim Tau (Little Idea), Cham Kiu (Seeking Bridge), and Biu Ji (Thrusting Fingers). The empty hand forms are foundational to techniques, movement, balance, and defense.

Chi Sau (Sticky Hands) is a bridge between practice and application, it is in a sense, physical chess. Chi Sau helps develop technique and respond instantly to changing or unknown circumstances by feeling the intention of your partner (opponent). It is also an excellent way to develop balance, flexibility, coordinator, and strength in a fun and relaxed environment.

During our Wing Chun for Seniors class we will spend each class working through the Forms of Wing Chun, steps for balance and coordination, and then practice Chi Sao with each other. 

Classes are on Tuesday and Thursday’s mornings at 9am.
