Of course, women and men can train in any martial arts style we offer. Each has its own advantages. For example, Filipino Kali-Arnis-Eskrima is excellent for defending yourself from someone with a knife. Wrestling, on the other hand, is good for close hand-to-hand combat.

Japnese Ju-Jitsu:

Ju-Jitsu is the father of modern Judo. Working with joint manipulations, some say that the system is similar to folding laundry while your opponent is still in them. Working with body angles for throws and take downs, for submissions on the ground, or standing positions using traps or come-along holds, Ju Jitsu is the perfect system for control of a much larger opponent.

Chinese Martial Arts:

The 5 Animal Styles of Kung Fu: Tiger, Leopard, Crane, Snake and Dragon
These 5 systems together, give a martial artist, a strong, well rounded personal system of kung fu.

The Tiger Style:

known for it's strong and agile attacks, spherical hand and arm motions, and direct line, forward aggression thought process.  Tiger claw techniques are similar to the way a cat plays with a ball.  Batting and then extending the claws to grab, rip and tear.

The Leopard Style:

Fast and technical, this system uses forward and backward lunging motions for "sneak attacks" similar to the way a cat would lean back and forth without losing it's ground while fighting. Leopard paw target areas such as arm pits and inner thighs, are then followed up for the final blows to vital areas of the body.

The Crane Style

Being very still as it hunts through shallow water, the graceful crane system is more defensive than the tiger or leopard.  At longer ranges, reaching to make contact, the eyes, throat, groin and heart are targets of this system of combat.  Evasive movement to attacks with the cranes beak, to surgical areas of the body to impact nerves and energy lines.

The Snake Style

Targeting the eyes, throat, and groin, the 1, 2 or 5 fingers snake hand and the toes of the foot to pressure points, high and low.  Multiple attacks, hands and feet in unison, make this system of kung fu difficult to deal with.  Dealing with an attack either high or low is one thing, both at the same time is something else entirely.

The Dragon Style

The dragon claw, similar to a palm strike but with the fingers slightly bent, the dragon tail kick, used to sweep, using very relaxed muscles to go from soft spherical sweeps to hard linear strikes, uses the attributes of the other animals to blend it's spirit into a total fighting concept.

Wing Chun Kung Fu:

There are several variations of how this close quarter battle system came into being, some with a snake and a crane, some with a crane and a personal favorite...and a few other ideas, but the ideas are the same.  The best way to defeat a larger opponent.  Sometimes called elevator boxing, Wing Chun is perfect for defense in a small, confined area.  Between cars, in a doorway, in a crowded room, or between tables in a bar.  Generating power in close range punches and kicks, while standing your ground is the base for this system of in-fighting.  If Indonesian Silat is the spherical Kung Fu system of CQB, then Wing Chun is the linear Karate system.  Trapping an opponents hands, arms and legs, with one hand, while delivering short range vertical strikes with the other, all of your bodies energy and force is directed only at your attacker.

Korean Martial Arts

Tae Kwon Do:

Each system of martial art is designed for it's own range of combat.  Wrestling is perfect for the ground, but horrible against someone using a knife.  Boxing is great for being arms length but doesn't work well against an opponent with a 10 foot staff.  So each system has it's "holes" for a true martial artist, but none would be complete without the long range kicks from Tae Kwon Do.  Reaching, jumping, spinning, or just kicking straight ahead, TKD employees kicks to the body and head with accuracy few other systems can manage.  Developed in Korea, and today an Olympic sport, TKD is one of the most popular systems of martial art taught to children.

  • *Classes in TKD taught every evening at the Cypress location from 4-8pm
