Classes

Jido Kwan Taekwondo

Taekwondo is a Korean martial art. Taekwondo was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by various Korean martial artists combining and incorporating the elements of Karate and Chinese Martial Arts along with the indigenous Korean martial arts traditions of Taekkyeon, Subak, and Gwonbeop. Taekwondo is characterized by its emphasis on head-height kicks, jumping and spinning kicks, and fast kicking techniques. In fact, World Taekwondo Federation sparring competitions award additional points for strikes that incorporate spinning kicks.

YawYan Philippine Kickboxing

Yaw-Yan,called Sayaw ng Kamatayan or “Dance of Death” is a Filipino style of Kickboxing developed by Napoleon A. Fernandez and based on older Filipino martial arts. Since its inception in the 1970s, it has dominated the kickboxing scene in the Philippines and has proven very effective against other stand-up fighting arts. Yaw-Yan closely resembles Muay Thai, but differs in the hip-torquing motion as well as the downward-cutting nature of its kicks, and the emphasis on delivering attacks from long range (while Muay Thai focuses more on clinching).

Zohar Krav Maga

This is a self-defense system developed for the Israel Defense Forces that consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from aikido, judo, boxing and wrestling, along with realistic fight training.Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and its extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks.It was derived from street-fighting skills developed by Hungarian-Israeli martial artist Imi Lichtenfeld, who made use of his training as a boxer and wrestler as a means of defending the Jewish quarter against fascist groups in Bratislava, Czechoslovakia in the mid-to-late 1930s. In the late 1940s, following his migration to Israel, he began to provide lessons on combat training to what was to become the IDF, who went on to develop the system that became known as Krav Maga. It has since been refined for civilian, police and military applications.

DTS Dikiti Tirsia Sirada

Dekiti Tirsia Siradas is Filipino fighting system indigenous to the southern Philippines, specifically Negros Island in the Visayas region. The system is combative in nature, not sporty, and gives much emphasis to the use of the knife. The name originates from Hiligaynon, loosely meaning close quarter combat and trapping. It is closely related to Pekiti-Tirsia Kali, as both founders are from the Tortal family. Some suggest Dekiti Tirsia Siradas was organized by Grandmaster Jerson Tortal, Sr. in protest to Leo Gaje, Jr. (founder of Pekiti-Tirsia Kali) being instated as the head of the Tortal family martial art, but no proof is given.
