In this class, students will learn how to be their own best friend and how to be a good friend to others.

Systema / Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu / Wrestling
Ground training is a crucial component in a comprehensive martial arts program. Our students learn and practice how to fall and roll safely, effective takedowns, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and wrestling techniques, as well as Systema strikes and breaks from the ground. Aside from the practical self-defense benefits, ground skills can also greatly enhance a student’s self-confidence and ability “to go with the flow.”
Systema / Sparring
We incorporate moves, drills, and freestyle sparring from a variety of martial arts styles so that students may develop stand-up blocking, punching, and kicking skills. However, our emphasis in stand-up training is on the Systema principles of fluidity and partnering that involves mutual care and respect.
Tai Chi / Qigong / Traditional Karate
Students first learn to connect a series of individual movements using their breath then they progress to a pre-choreographed set of moves from Tai Chi and traditional karate katas. This individual practice not only builds tremendous body awareness, coordination, strength, and stamina but also develops focus, confidence, and determination.
