Bruce Lee and his partner Dan Inosanto electrified the martial arts world in the late 1960s and early 1970s. Comprised of 26 elemental arts, Bruce's system, the Jun Fan Martial Arts, is known for its economy of motion and integration of arts. The guiding principle of this revolutionary art is personal growth and continued research and development. Our classes are a mix of high energy kickboxing drills, intricate trapping, infighting, some locking and occasional ground tactics.
Our Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) class is a blend of the weaponry (Kali) and empty hand (Panantukan) systems. You will learn how the stick, knife and palmstick informs the empty handed style of dirty boxing. So why learn a weapon art? Through the guidance of our school's founder Guro Rick Faye we believe the use of the Escrima stick, training knife and other tools offer a great way to fine tune motor skills, increase peripheral vision, and generally provide you with more options to defend against an attack with a weapon. Moreover, training with weapons can support your development in other martial arts, as you identify range, acquire better limb coordination, and enhance sensitivity.
Sometimes called Dirty Boxing, Panantukan (Filipino Boxing) (pannan-too-can) is the Filipino Boxing system. This method is ideal for self defense and the skills are obvious from the first day. The health benefits are felt over time as you train both sides of the body and progressively get in better shape. Stress relief, weight loss and true martial art skill are benefits of these classes.
Through our parent school in the US, we have taken this highly effective ring art and devised drills that are fun, yet challenging you will be confidently hitting pads and developing good reactions from the very first class. Unlike some kickboxing styles, we will help you utilise all 8 weapons of the body fists (punches), elbows, feet (kicks), and knees all performed through various drills, combinations and fitness workouts on handheld pads. This will get you in great shape, yet teach you how to defend against many types of attack.
