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? Our program is based on decades of research and development in the ‘real world’.
The discipline, focused around the use of the blade, originated in the provinces of Panay and Negros Occidental in the Philippines in 1897, was mastered by the Tortal family and handed down through generations. 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.

It truly is a ‘total’ body workout!
There is no other workout that is so complete and engagin!
One of the best parts of our program is that every student is treated as an individual, and will progress at their ow 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 quaterback on the football team, can have a wonderful experience in our program, and become stronger, fitter and more flexible.
The great thing about our program is, 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 the high energy nature of our instruction that always keeps the class 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/or your family is to try it for yourself!
We have some GREAT WEB SPECIALS, so you can try the program with no strings attached, and see with your own 2 eyes 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.
