WHAT WE TEACH
For each grade you will learn a series of movements, blocks,
strikes, locks, throws, weapons defence, chokes and self defense techniques which will be a natural progression from those taught in the earlier grades.
The techniques taught will consist of a combination of body movement, evasion, blocking, striking, joint locking, throwing, vital area attacks, pressure point application, disabling and restraining components. Techniques are designed to allow you to defend yourself in the most effective manner appropriate to the situation. Progression through the grades requires that the student demonstrate an understanding of those principles before moving on to the next grade.
