Mix Martial Arts
Taekwondo, a Korean martial art, combines combat and self-defense techniques with sports and exercise. Since it emphasizes high kicking and fast hand techniques—both of which are popular with people of all ages—the sport develops strength, speed, balance, flexibility, and stamina. Taekwondo teaches its students the importance of uniting the body, mind, life, pose, confrontation, and cracking down.
Ninjitsu is an ancient art form that originated in Japan. Although it was often referred to as “the art of winning,” the sport is now known as a powerful and positive way to live life in harmony with nature. The very word Ninjitsu is derived from several important Japanese concepts: endurance, perseverance, forbearance in the physical and mental realms, and character.
As they study this art, pupils learn how to control their mind, body, heart, life tasks, and perception of right and wrong. Ninjutsu encompasses kicking, grappling and taijustsu (linear and circular empty-hand skills). It also emphasizes the use of traditional weapons such as the sword, dagger, dart, weighted chain and shurikens (ninja stars).
Japanese Jujitsu, first practiced during the Muromachi period (1333-1573), once taught lightly armed warriors to fight heavily armed warriors. As a result, this sport involves a significant amount of grappling, throwing, restraining, and weaponry skills. As jujitsu evolved, the movements began to use an attacker’s momentum against them by guiding it in a way that the attacker would prefer. Today’s jiujitsu students learn how to strike, throw, restrain, joint lock, and grapple. They are also taught how to use weapons. Practitioners learn how to disable and disarm their opponents by using their aggressiveness against them.
Boxing, also known as “the noble art of self defense,” is a sport in which two competitors try to hit each other while simultaneously avoiding blows. Boxing originated in Greece—it was a well-known Olympic game—and is now popular all around the world. As they study the art form, boxers learn strength, power, agility, and how to become great fighters. Boxing classes teach students how to master the sport’s many techniques, ensuring that each student learns how to apply the skills properly.
Muay Thai, a Thai hand martial art and combat sport, is known as “The Art of the Eight Limbs.” This sport uses the hands, shins, elbows, and knees to execute strikes using the eight points of contact. Muay Thai teaches students how to use important techniques—such as elbow slashes, thrusts, and strikes; kicking; knee strikes; and foot thrusts—to gain an advantage against their opponents. Students also learn how to defend themselves through blocking, redirection, avoidance, evasion, disruption, and anticipation. In addition to adapting mental and physical strength, students learn how to be humble and disciplined and inspire others. Muay Thai brings tremendous self-confidence and humility into the lives of its students.
