We know cycling studio and gym memberships are popular, but we’d like to ask you something: how much are you actually learning from those programs?
We think you’re ready for a new workout challenge—and martial arts is exactly the challenge you’ve been looking for.
You’ll learn entirely new disciplines, build muscles you never knew you had, and boost your self confidence in ways you never thought possible.
We offer two distinct martial arts disciplines for adults: Kali and Aikido. Regardless of which one you choose, the results will be the same: improved physical wellness, greater mental wellness, and increased self confidence.
Kali is the national martial art of the Philippines. Sometimes referred to as arnis or eskrima, Kali has it’s roots in Indonesian Martial Arts and fencing! It is a complete martial art system that encompasses weapons training, grappling, empty handed-close quarter combat.
Though it is not the most recognizable name in martial arts, you have seen examples of Kali in movies such as all the Jason Bourne series, The 300, The Equalizer, and The Book of Eli.You’ll practice to become faster and stronger. You’ll focus on your hand-eye coordination. And your instructors will be with you every step of the way to ensure you’re learning the discipline properly and safely.
When you enter other martial arts training systems, you start with punching, kicking, and learning forms and someday when you’re good enough, they put a weapon in your hand. Filipinos take a different approach to martial arts. You start with the weapons training, AND THAT is what teaches you how to fight with your empty hands. Filipino martial arts culture is a blade culture, so a lot of what you learn is rooted in knives and short swords. We use sticks in class and learn particular patterns which later translates into how to use your empty hands. Learning Kali is so much fun, so you learn at a faster rate than you would in traditional martial arts. What you learn in one month in Kali will better prepare you for a dangerous self defense encounter than six months in a traditional martial art.
