A combat system from the Philippines, PTK can teach you to impair an attacker on the street in 3 seconds. “This is the only system in the world which has been tried and tested in actual war
How do you get out of an unsafe situation on the street in 3 seconds, using nothing but a mobile phone, a ball pen or a credit card? What prepares you for a fight where you aren’t physically stronger than your attacker? Don’t fumble about trying to throw a watery punch that will never really land, or unsuccessfully resist a formidable pull. The street has no rules, referees or medals. It’s not about pinning someone down and waiting for them to tap out before a crowd raises you up with thunderous applause. It’s about survival. (PTK) is a Filipino combat system that trains you for actual self defense scenarios.
Pekiti Tirsia can turn ordinary citizens into warriors very quickly.
It is not a traditional martial art like Karate, Jujitsu, Taekwondo, or Kung-Fu.
Real-World Self-Defense teaches average people like you the skills to use your body as a weapon of destruction very quickly. It was designed from the beginning to teach the most effective techniques to some of the least dangerous people, in the shortest amount of time.
In our Real-World Self-Defense program you practice simple, straightforward techniques that you can execute immediately.
You will learn to disarm, disable, and defeat your attacker in a matter of seconds.
You’ll still get a good workout as you gain strength and lose some weight, but our focus is helping you learn to defend yourself so you can be a victor, not a victim.
For thousands of years, people have turned to the martial arts to learn to defend themselves. Traditional martial arts have a time-proven system for teaching self-defense, as well as self-discipline, self-confidence, and perseverance.
Unfortunately, many busy adults just don’t have the time it takes to study a full traditional martial art. They need a program with proven combat success that can be taught as quickly as possible.
They need a program that is easy to learn, easy to do, and devastatingly effective.
According to the US Bureau of Justice Statistics, the likelihood of being the victim of a violent crime is over 80% for the average person over their lifetime. Those are pretty high odds.
When will it happen to YOU and what will you be able to do about it?
Hi, my name is Shihan Durand Howard, and I’m sorry to be the one to tell you that personal self-defense skills are no longer an elective–they are a requirement for living in our modern society.
I’m also very proud to tell you that HUNDREDS of men and women in the Maplewood area are safer, stronger, and have better peace of mind because they have practiced Real-World Self-Defense at Blue Life Karate & Xtreme Kickboxing.

Our Self-Defense program is based on decades of research and development in the real world.
Our students learn simple but practical skills to first avoid, but then to quickly eliminate any threat you might encounter on the street.
You’ll feel more confident armed with the knowledge that you can handle any situation you might be confronted with.
Our Self-Defense program covers every component of self-defense and fitness. You will improve cardio, strength, agility, flexibility, and endurance through our classes. There is no other workout that is so complete and engaging!
It truly is a total body workout.
One of the best parts of our program is that every student is treated as an individual, and will progress at their own rate.
Each student’s progress isn’t measured against other students, but rather against their own previous performance.
So, even students that aren’t as physically fit as the star quarterback of a football team can have a wonderful experience in our program and become stronger, fitter, and more flexible.
The great thing about our program is that everyone is treated as an individual.
We have students as young as 3 or 4, and as old as 94!
Since every person is different, the best (and really, ONLY) way to see if our program is a good fit for you is to take advantage of one of our WEB SPECIALS and try it for yourself!
I’m 100% confident you’ll have a great time!
Our program is FUNDAMENTALLY different!
In a typical exercise program, you may be getting a good workout, but you’re really not learning much of anything.
Our programs will not only keep you excited and motivated because of our high-energy instruction that always keeps classes fresh and interesting, but you’ll also be learning real practical skills that could one day save your life.
Our students find this learning process incredibly engaging and challenges them to truly master their technique. I guess this is the reason our students stick with our program while previous workouts have failed them.
We know how busy your life is, so our program is designed for the busy person. Students can make exciting progress by attending classes an average of twice a week.
Some students will want to attend more classes and that’s great–we have options for that!
Really, the only way to know if our program is a good fit for you and your family is to try it out!
We have some GREAT WEB SPECIALS, so you can try the program with no strings attached and for yourself how the program will benefit you or your whole family.

People believe that martial arts training is just another extra curricular activity, that is a misconception. There is not any program that is going to give you the benefits that you receive from martial arts training. Many people think the martial arts are just about fighting, the truth is that the physical “kicking and punching” are really just the tools that I use to teach the more important, and MUCH more valuable lessons about yourself.
