REALITY ARTS CLASS- KIDS 6-14
Honoring tradition, but not bound to it.. Often times people don’t realize that the word "martial" in "martial arts" means military, combative or warlike. there is a fine balance that must be struck between ensuring that children receive the fantastic character development benefits of a well executed martial arts program without sacrificing the idea that they can have fun AND learn a viable, realistic system of self defense that takes into consideration their strengths and limitations. Martial Arts is a great vehicle to teach your child respect, focus, self discipline, perseverance, and confidence (no trophies for just being there, true self esteem come from true achievement!). Those things happen in conjunction with a real world ability to recognize danger and for them to avoid it, or deal with it as needed. The children's class will give a basic understanding of the 5 ranges of conflict (weapons, kicking, punching, trapping and grappling) and given stratagies to deal with problems that could arise. Leadership and citizenship are central to the full development of our young warriors!
REALITY ARTS CLASS- ADULTS 15 UP (OR BY INSTRUCTOR PERMISSION)
Bruce Lee stated "To be bound by traditional martial art style or styles is the way of the mindless, enslaved martial artist. But to be inspired by the traditional martial art and to achieve further heights is the way of genius." With this concept foremost in our minds the focus for the adult reality arts class is to find the solution to combative situations in a way that addresses the personal strengths of each student, while trying to attack the opponent's weaknesses. Instead of going strength against strength, we focus on utilizing the five ranges of combat to our adantage. Our goal is to understand the pychology and physcialogy of the encounter with the end result being victory or at least survivability! We will achieve this by analyzing traditional techniques and adapting them as needed to the modern environment of aggression. This self exploration is presented in an engaging and fun class sprinkled with humor and real world application helping improve mental and physcial flexibility and strength.
REALITY WEAPONS CLASS - ALL AGES
(WITH PARENTAL AND INSTRUCTOR PERMISSION)
To best be able to defend yourself against a weapon attack, you first need to understand the way the weapons system will be used against you! This class will explore the escalation of force continuium, and how to quickly handle the situation and stop the progression. We will delve into the traditional weapons to better understand the range and attack zones that various weapons offer, but the primary focus will be on the more common knife, stick and improvised weapons such as baseball bats, tire irons, and disarms of gun and knife. The primary focus will be on filipino weapons training of Balintawak and Doce Pares and how they augment the Tri-Tactical system utilized by the Warrior Arts Reality System. The adults that are firearm owners will also be trained on proper deployment and retention of their weapon platform. The dual focus on traditional weapons (primarily Japanese) as well as the filipino knife, single and double stick work will augment coordination, timing, hand and mental processing speed to an amazing level! Whether armed or unarmed, the skills aquired from this type of training cross over to any other sport or activity that the practicioner participates in! Coordination, balance and a general understanding and respect for any weapon and how it extends the range of conflict is essential to the well rounded martial artist!
MMA AND SPORT ARTS CLASS-ALL AGES
(WITH PARENTAL AND INSTRUCTOR PERMISSION)
It was written in Proverbs "As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." The idea of competition is as true of a litmus test as we can get without having a real self defense situation develop and testing your reactions in that environment (one of our self defense goals is to head off any of those conflicts before they happen!) The MMA and Sport Arts class is more focused on preparation for competition, in a cage, ring, or on the mats. As is the case in all of my classes the reward is often in the journey, and is in direct proportion to the amount of work that is put in... you will work in this class! The secret to split second reactions during a fight is training- reps upon reps, until your body just "knows" what to do. Let's hone that edge to a razor's sharpneSS.
