We teach practical applications for self-defense that enables our students to be more aware of their surroundings, develop reflexes, and confidence that will improve their chances of escaping from a hostile situation.

SELF CONTROL

Often times, those who learn martial arts realize they actually have less conflict in life. Physical training should always be included with mental strength. Self Control can be taught is many ways.

For young children, we focus on clear structured learning, balance, attention, and discipline, combined with hand-eye coordination and exercises to improve their flexibility and agility. We have seen that young children gain a development edge in their early childhood both physically and in maturity. For teenagers and adult, we focus on self confidence, concentration and discipline.

COMPETITION

A safe, effective way for our students to measure and improve their skills and mental toughness in a live and full speed environment. Whether this is in our regular class, traveling within the U.S. or even to an international location, it is a value experience that we recommend all our students to try. The whole process of training, mental readiness, pre-competition jitters, in-match challenges, and finally the result of winning or losing is not only a valuable development for a martial artist but also a great character builder. Competition is also a great team builder as the Club has produced numerous National Champions in Shuai-chiao, San-shou, and Tai-chi.
