Why Our Martial Arts Works


We Keep it Simple

Martial arts punches are more like thrusts than strikes. Kickboxing teaches you to throw punches in bunches. It’s like a machine gun vs a single-shot pistol.

Your Title Goes Here

Most schools have an overly complex curriculum that forces students to learn long, drawn-out forms (kata) and traditional basics. We only teach the most effective and easy strikes without the kata.



These Skills Work

Under the stress of a violent attack, you must have skills that are easy to use when needed. That’s why we teach skills that don’t require years to learn.


We’ve Narrowed It Down

Out of the hundreds of martial arts skills and techniques, we narrowed it down to a dozen simple strikes. That’s it.
