What We Teach

Filipino Martial Arts

Origin: Philippines

Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) is a broad term meant to unify the country's various styles under one identity. The three most commonly-used umbrella terms are Eskrima, Arnis and Kali.

Eskrima, Arnis and Kali are used interchangeably for weapon-based martial arts, particularly those which focus on bladed weapons or stick-fighting. Panantukan, pangamut and pamuok all refer to empty-handed striking methods, while pantadyakan and pananjakman are kick-based. Dumog or wrestling is considered one of the oldest unarmed Filipino fighting styles.

Filipino martial artists are noted for their ability to fight with weapons or empty hands interchangeably. Weapons-training takes precedence because it promotes proficiency in bare-handed techniques, so the empty hands are treated as another type of weapon.



Muay Thai - Thai Boxing

Origin: Thailand   

Muay Thai is Thailand's national sport. Muay Thai is referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" or the "Science Of Eight Limbs" because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact", as opposed to "two points" (fists) in Western boxing and "four points" (hands and feet) used in sport-oriented martial arts.



Jun Fan – Gung Fu

Origin: China / USA

Jun Fan Gung Fu was Bruce Lee’s innovative combination of different martial ideas that occurred between 1964-1967. “Jun Fan" was also Lee's Chinese given name.

In 1967 Jun Fan Gung Fu became known as Jeet Kune Do; abbreviated as JKD. Jeet Kune Do eventually became a concept known to a few top Jeet Kune Do instructors as Jeet Kune Do Concepts, a way of training, a way to adapt to any possible situation that could occur in a self defense situation and a way to evolve. Not as a set pattern in the training methods or the learning of organized techniques. Which can only be done by researching martial arts to learn more possible paths to take along with different lines of attack to defend. It was meant for his students and generations to come to understand Bruce Lee’s fighting methods with the way he would have wanted it to progress and not stay with a certain stagnant pattern that never grows.
