Aikido: The way of harmonizing with the spirit of the universe. Those who practice aikido move with – rather than against – the attacker by drawing on our internal energy, or “ki.” Learn to redirect an opponent’s energy and neutralize an attack without bringing harm to the attacker or yourself.
Capoeira: A Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music, and is sometimes referred to as a game. It was developed in Brazil mainly by African descendants with native Brazilian influences, possibly dating back to the 16th century. It is known for its quick and complex moves, using mainly power, speed, and leverage for a wide variety of kicks, spins, and highly mobile techniques. At heart is the ginga, the back-and-forth, foot-to-foot movement that serves as the starting point for such leverage.
Krav Maga: Krav Maga is the official hand-to-hand combat system of the Israeli defense forces. It’s also the preferred system for U.S. military and law enforcement personnel. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self-defense in the shortest possible time. Learn to defend against common chokes, grabs, and bear hugs, as well as weapons such as guns, knives, and sticks. Just as important, people are taught to function during the stress and shock of a sudden violent encounter. Tested on the battlefield and on the streets, Krav Maga’s practical approach to self-defense will make you safer and more secure.
Self-Defense (Aikido): The class will focus on a limited number of Aikido based techniques so that students have a strong grasp of a handful of techniques to deal with larger, stronger, and multiple opponents at the end of the semester. **You are highly encouraged to attend both Aikido classes.
Tai Chi: Tai Chi means “grand ultimate fists” It is an ancient form of martial art that uses slow controlled movements which are designed to promote relaxation and mental clarity, while increasing ones strength, balance, flexibility and agility. The forms and movements that will be taught in this class have been simplified to make it fun and easy for everyone learn!
