The Las Vegas Martial Arts Academy is proud to announce the addition of our NEW IRT™ COURSE … IRT™ is a combat oriented martial system that has its origins from various martial arts from around the world with heavy influence from Korea, America, Philippines, Brazil, Indonesia, Japan, China, Europe, and Vietnam. This system has further developed by incorporating what is useful from other martial arts and self defense systems. This system has been heavily influence by martial arts from Korea, America, Philippines, Brazil, Indonesia, Japan, China, Europe, and Vietnam.
IRT™ AT IT’S VERY ESSENCE IS THE STUDY OF MARTIAL SCIENCE.
IRT™ is a system that teaches martial science. Martial science includes the entire group of martial techniques designed for self defense.
Martial science continues to develop and mature with each day, month, and year, it is flexible developing naturally as new innovations and ideas surface.
What is INSTINCTIVE RESPONSE TRAINING™?
Very few things are more instinctive than hand to hand combat between humans. Even though we have come into the space age, conflict among humans continues to happen on a daily basis around our world. During the course of everyday living, each and every one of us is a potential victim of violence.
How do we ensure the safety of our loved ones as well as ourselves?
While there are no absolutes or guarantees if we practice true martial ways, then at least we have a chance to survive a violent encounter. Preparation and Planning are always the keys in every facet of our life, it should be no different then when we contemplate how to protect our loved ones and ourselves.
Over the years as I designed a system that was always open ended and provided growth for every practitioner and at every level of their training.
The principles and concepts taught for protecting oneself grow according to each practitioners ability and skill level and they are always taught with a clear moral guidance.
The instinctive response is what every system around the world strives for in their martial science training. It is the process of bringing the body, mind, and spirit together during the moment of a violent encounter so that a practitioners actions occur without thought.
Through IRT ™ I teach martial science, the art of using one’s body, mind and spirit for self protection and self realization.
It is important to note that INSTINCTIVE RESPONSE TRAINING™ is a name and what is really important is learning martial science to grow as a more complete human.
Learn Instinctive Response Training … Truly one of the worlds most effective Martial Sciences!

Upcoming Black Belt Testing | November 1, 2014
Our training combines self-defense and combat techniques with sport and exercise. We cover kicks, a system of blocks, punches, open-handed strikes, various takedowns, throws, and joint locks. In Korean, tae (태, 跆) means “to strike or break with foot”; kwon (권, 拳) means “to strike or break with fist”; and do (도, 道) means “way”, “method”, or “path”. Thus, taekwondo may be loosely
translated as “the way of the foot and the hand.”
The teaching of the basic skills in FMA (Filipino Martial Arts) are traditionally simplified. With limited time to teach flashy and intricate techniques, only skills that were proven effective in battle and could easily be taught en masse were used. This philosophy of simplicity is still used today and is the underlying base of the FMA. Because of this approach, the FMA are often mistakenly considered to be “simple” fighting arts. However, this refers only to its systematization, not effectiveness. To the contrary, beyond the basic skills lies a very complex structure and a refined skill set that takes years to master.
Our training involves weapon-based fighting techniques of the late Grandmaster Lindsey Largusa.
• Various improvised weapons
• Weapon disarming
The philosophy and subsequent pedagogy developed for judo became the model for other modern Japanese martial arts. Judo led to the development of other martial arts such as a Sambo and Brazilian jiu-jitsu
