MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES: Conditioned combat response

Our martial arts program is unique because it provides a well-rounded approach to personal protection and self-defense that we call our Conditioned Combat Response (CCR) System. Conditioned Combat Response is designed to condition your mind and body to respond to the potential ominous threats that plague our communities. By combining elements of Kickboxing, Shoot Wrestling, Basic Brazilian Jiujitsu, Krav Maga, and Arnis, our students are capable of defending themselves striking, grappling, against multiple assailants, attackers with various weapons, and how to utilize sticks and knives (for adults) as defensive weapons. In addition, our students are taught situational awareness and threat assessment in an effort to avoid confrontational or dangerous situations.

Not only do we provide practical and effective self-defense training, but we also focus on character enrichment for our youth through our Character Counts - 4 Step Approach to Development and Growth program. We believe each student is different with unique concerns that need to be addressed, so we provide a personal touch that you will not find at other martial arts academies. We also spend a great deal of time focusing on dealing with bullies and integrating stranger awareness training for our children.

Furthermore, we offer a life-skills program for our teens that goes beyond anything others are offering. Our Keepin' It REAL Life-Skills program provides our teenagers with college-level leadership skills, basic business principles to awaken the entrepreneurial spirit within them, and financial principles everyone should know to live a debt-free and comfortable lifestyle.

For adults, we also include fitness, firearms, and first aid training. Our fitness regimen focuses more on cardio and conditioning. For the firearms portion, we utilize SIRT Pistols, laser fired training guns to go over gun safety, as well as basic and tactical shooting skills applicable for civilian use. For the first aid portion, members of our adult program are taught how to provide CPR and deal with life-threatening bleeding. Our aim is to ensure you are fully prepared to protect yourself and your family from the various menacing dangers that loom in our society. Remember, you are your first line of defense, and when dangers come, you only have a split-second to respond.
