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
