CURRICULUM


Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do (Fundamentals) - Bruce Lee’s personal system, the Jun Fan Martial Arts / Jeet Kune Do, is known for its economy of motion and integration of arts and ranges. Natural attributes such as coordination, timing, speed, endurance, strength, and agility are improved by the innovative teaching and training methods developed by Bruce Lee, and preserved and taught today by his protege, student and training partner, Dan Inosanto.


Filipino Martial Art (Weapons) - The Filipino martial arts are known by many names but most commonly Kali, Arnis or Escrima.  Kali is an ancient word that serves as an umbrella term for all the Filipino martial arts. The word itself translates as the study of “Body Motion”.  Although the base of the system is in weaponry, its empty hand systems feature some of the most sophisticated techniques and training methods in existence.  The weaponry training covers a wide spectrum featuring stick, blade and knife as well as flexible weapons and weapons of opportunity. 

Muay Thai/Kickboxing - Muay Thai, translated into English as Thai Boxing, is the national sport of Thailand and is a martial art with origins in the ancient battlefield tactics of the Siamese (or Thai) army. It evolved from Krabi Krabong, literally long and short weapons, the weapons tactics of the Thai army. Muay Thai is known as “King of the Ring” in kickboxing circles. These fights feature punches, kicks, elbows, knees, standing grappling and head-butts to wear down and knock out their opponent. Muay Thai has also proven very effective outside the ring and has been embraced enthusiastically by practitioners of a variety of self-defense, sporting, military and law enforcement activities.

​​Grappling Tactics - Our training is a blend of different arts like Brazilain Jiu-jitsu, Judo, Filipino Dumog and wrestling that covers basic takedowns, submissions, lock flows and positioning to and from the ground. Our goal is not to fight on the ground but to feel comfortable enough to control your opponent in order to get back to your feet. We also incorporate the Filipino art of Kino Mutay, also known as the art of “biting and piching”.


OFFERED PRIVATELY OR GROUP TRAINING(inluded in our general curriculum) 


Rapid Assault Tactics or R.A.T - is a fighting system developed by Paul Vunak founder of Progressive Fighting Systems (PFS). Rapid Assault Tactics is the core of his approach to the martial arts. It was developed for the U.S. Navy Seals as a primary combative program based in Jeet Kune Do concepts. Rapid Assault Tactics focuses on identifying phase (or range) in which an attack situation is occurring and responding to it with appropriate tools.  The R.A.T. has been taught to Special Forces, Military, Marines, Rangers, F.B.I, D.E.A, C.I.A, and over 50 police Departments in the U.S. 


Force Continuum - this course provides training using the minimum amount of force necessary to control a subject. The student will learn to protect themselves from physical threats, as well as the legal responsibilities of their actions. This is perfect for law enforcement, security officers and first responders.


Escape To Gain Safety or E.T.G.S. - Escape to Gain Safety is a special program designed to meet the self-protection needs of American women, teenagers, and girls.  Adapted and developed from the Navy SEAL system of Rapid Assault Tactics, E.T.G.S. will provide you, your sisters, your girlfriends, and your daughters with the skills and training to be aware, make intelligent decisions, and learn how to disengage from violent encounters in order to escape. The curriculum was designed specifically to be learned in a short amount of time by emphasizing and attacking vulnerable points on the assailant such as the Eyes, Throat, Groin and Shins.
