This type of martial art builds harmony with others and shows how to control the attack. It focuses on the idea that balance is essential to all things. The technique of this class will teach students to defend themselves with little power. Aiki-Ju-Jitsu can be recognized by the subtle flowing throws, joint-locks, and extremely effective control of an opponent’s center of gravity. The class also teaches kata and weapons.
Youth welcome with instructor approval; must have adult supervision.
Instructor: Masayoshi UmedaAdults: $30
BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU**NOTE: THIS CLASS IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD DUE TO COVID RESTRICTIONS
Also known as "The Gentle Art", BJJ is a grappling martial art that allows an individual to successfully defend themselves and prevail against a bigger and stronger opponent through the use of leverage-based techniques. These techniques include take-downs, joint locks, and strangle holds. The general aim of a BJJ practitioner is to take an opponent to the ground, establish a dominant position of control, and then force the opponent to concede by applying a joint lock or strangle hold. BJJ is unique among martial arts in that it allows an opponent to be soundly defeated without causing injury.
Instructor: Ivan Sakamoto
Isshin-Ryu stresses close-in techniques necessary for self-protection. Unlike most Karate styles, the Isshin-Ryu punch has the fist in a vertical position, rather than palm-down. This type of martial art is similar to Shorin Ryu. You will learn a combination of Karate and Kobudu. The class incorporates eight different Empty Hand Kata (a choreographed series of movements) as well as weapons. As in most martial arts, mind and body play a major role in developing patience, self-control, and spiritual stability, especially when developing these skills to improve focus and concentration.Youth classes open to ages 7-15 years old & 5-7 years old with Sensei approval.
Instructor: Sensei Uechi-san
Adults: $50Youth: $50
