Karate, Kung Fu and Jiujitsu
From Karate – a term that groups together most of the Japanese-based “hard” striking styles – we get the linear, power-based stances, footwork and techniques. These styles are known for their simplicity of movement and emphasis on physical strength.
From Kung Fu – a term that literally means, “to be proficient in” and groups together many of the Chinese-based “soft” styles – we get the circular movement, footwork and techniques that avoiding matching power with an opponent. These styles are known for the circular, deflecting movements and techniques and are designed for a smaller person to use against a larger opponent.
From Jiujitsu – a term that groups in the Japanese-based grappling or ground fighting arts – we get the trips, tackles and take downs as well as standing defenses against grabs, chokes and weapon attacks. These styles are also known for joint manipulation – like wrist locks and arm bars – as well as various chokes, strangles, breaks and controlling techniques.
By taking the best from each style and blending them together, you get a system that prepares you to defend yourself in almost any situation, matching the power of an opponent, regardless of your size or the size of your opponent. It also allows us to train you in techniques that are the best fit for your body style.
