A new way to teach classic styles of forms and self defense is now in Bakersfield!

Basic Principles of the Month:

Aim for an imaginary opponent – You cannot always spar or work with a live target. In fact, if you always struck other students in order to improve your own skills, eventually we would have no more students. They would quit from repeated injury. So, in order to develop your skills, you have to perform your techniques with full intent, focus, power and precision. AND, without a real, live target you will have to imagine one. Your opponent is you. When you strike the solar plexus, you need to imagine striking the solar plexus of a person your size and shape. This gives the mind and body something to focus on.

Stay wary of opponent after battle – Never turn your back to an opponent. Always be respectful of your opponent but not at the expense of your protection or guard. Always keep an eye on your opponent, enemy and environment.


Class Schedule:

Classes are held every Wednesday and Thursday evening. Saturday classes run from 10:30 to noon.  And while it is not on an official schedule, we frequently hold class on Sunday mornings as well. Come check out a class and see if our family is right for you and yours!
