Mixed martial arts, Reality Self defense, Krav Maga
In the distant past there did not exist the various divisions of styles that exist today: Judo, karate, jujitsu, boxing...there was just fighting. Fighting was total and complete and was designed for survival, not for sport. There were no rules. On the streets today that situation still exists, there are no rules except those you bring with you. Over the years various masters categorized the techniques they knew best and classified them, giving them names. Followers became devoted to these styles and followed them religiously, soon forgetting that each style only contained a partial truth, an incomplete fighting style.
Reality fighting on the street did not recognize these divisions and still included kicking and punching, takedowns and throws, eye gouges and pressure points, weapons of every sort.
In our time enlightened teachers have broken free of stylistic divisions and returned to complete fighting, total self defense. As such we are not a "style" but an approach; seeking the truth in fighting, using any technique that works without regard for its country of origin or the history of its masters.
We incorporate techniques and strategies from the following disciplines;
Karate, Kickboxing, Thai Boxing, Boxing - These techniques include the most powerful striking techniques. They include powerful hand strikes using both a closed fist and open hand. Every angle of the hand can be used for striking. Kicks include every possible type of strike using the feet, knees and shins. Judo, Wrestling, Brazilian Jujitsu - These techniques include takedowns and defense vs. takedowns, fighting on the ground, submission, joint control. This also includes escapes from holds on the ground including anti-rape techniques.
Jujitsu - The traditional Japanese art includes joint manipulation and escape from impossible holds. Defense from chokes, grabs and bear hugs of every type.
Control Points - The art of striking or pressing on vulnerable points throughout the body to control an opponent with minimal violence.
Kung Fu - We use concepts from the art of Wing Chun gung fu, a 300 year old art from China.
