 Practical self defense that works...

Our self defense program is based on Paul Vunak's system called Rapid Assault Tactics(R.A.T.) This fighting system is a streamlined approach to JKD and was developed intitially for our Navy Seals. Students are taught how assess and intercept a threat regardless of the range of combat. The most effective striking tools are taught to be used in all ranges against common attacks, grabs, holds and weapons. 

Student learn to have a battle plan and understand how to adapt to different dynamics of being attacked. All ranges of combat are covered from using improv weapons, mass attack, standup , closequarter, and grappling range.


We teach students how to maintain a calm and cool head under pressure so they can make smart decisions. Learning to deal with combat stress improves a fighters endurance, conserves energy, fighting ability, situational assesement, and potentially deesculate a fight before it happens.  


the original mixed martial arts by bruce lee

Our Mixed Martial Arts training is a modern day approach to Jeet Kune Do as developed by Bruce Lee and Dan Inosanto. The art and science of JKD has progressed to the combination of the following martial arts: Kali , Savate, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Western Boxing, Jujitsu and other arts that blend in harmonously.


This ability to flow from one Art to the next is what makes JKD unique. One's abilities and personality help shape how the individual expresses the Art. One's flow would be different then the next person even under the same training methods. Like the general sports of MMA we cover kickboxing, clinche, and grappling range. Our focus is however more geared towards  street application then combat sports. 


Functional fitness for the modern day fighter

Real world strength and conditioning is based on what we do daily and enhancing our overall attributes as fighters. Developing real world strength that applies to fighting can be speed, power, running, jumping, pulling, pushing, twisting, striking, and cardio that never stops ticking. 


Our martial arts program works through so many martial arts discipline that we learn to be efficient with how to apply our energy. As oppose to just lifting weights or running on a treadmill. This is a middle path of learning to be more powerful in our ability to fight and daily activity.


training methods that reduce the learning curve.

It does not take years to develop solid self defense skills. Martial Arts is not more complicated then physics, mathematic or most 4 year degree programs. We aim to teach you martial arts as whole approach to fighting not just the parts. In our classes we do not separate martial arts by style but instead cover what makes them unique and how they work together. 

We take a closer look at each martial art and attempt to deliver the essence of that art in your training. By streamlining the most effective aspects of a particular art we are able to focus and get pass the fluff. We run our program in smaller group sizes to deliver a more personal experience. This allows us to address the different needs of the student.
