Martial Art Forms


Judo, which means “The Gentle Way”, is a Japanese martial art based upon the ancient techniques of jujutsu. Judo is known for its spectacular throwing techniques but also includes numerous techniques for controlling an opponent while on the ground. Judo is often compared to freestyle wrestling and while the two share many techniques, Judo retains many dangerous self-defense maneuvers. A good judoka, one who practices Judo, will first use timing and leverage to bring his opponent off balance and execute a throw. Once the judoka has thrown his opponent to the ground, he will use painful hold-down techniques, chokes, strangleholds, and armlocks to control and subdue the opponent. A judoka first learns “ukemi”, the art of falling properly to avoid injury. All Judo practitioners wear a judogi and a belt. Judo is practiced on mats for safety.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a self-defense martial art and combat sport based on grappling, ground fighting, and submission holds. BJJ approaches self-defense by emphasizing taking an opponent to the ground, gaining a dominant position, and using a number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or chokeholds. Sparring, commonly referred to as “rolling” within the BJJ community, and live drilling plays a major role in training and the practitioner’s development. BJJ can also be used as a method of promoting physical fitness, building character, and as a way of life.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai is sometimes referred to as Thai boxing, and is a combat sport that uses stand-up striking along with various clinching techniques. This discipline is known as the “art of eight limbs”, as it is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees and shins. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the late 20th to 21st century, when Westernized practitioners from Thailand began competing in kickboxing and mixed-rules matches as well as matches under Muay Thai rules around the world.

Wing Chun

A Chinese martial art that was said to be invented by a woman. Using close range striking techniques to quickly disable your opponent, this martial art was based off the snake and crane styles of kung fu. The fundamental principles of Wing Chun are:

  • Always protect your center, whether in attack or defense.
  • Use the opponent’s strength to turn it against him.
  • Use the principles of deflection of force for defense and the straight line for attack.
  • When the bridge has been established, stay glued to the opponent’s forearms (the “sticky hands” principle, Chi Sao) because information passes more quickly through physical contact than through the eye.
  • If the opposing force is too great, give in and use your movement system to restructure.
  • If the opponent retreats, follow him and keep up the pressure, do not let him make new strategies.
  • Do not use your punching force but the speed and mass of your body.

Tae Kwon Do

A Korean form of martial arts involving punching and kicking techniques, with emphasis on head-height kicks, spinning jump kicks, and fast kicking techniques. The literal translation for tae kwon do is “kicking”, “punching”, and “the art or way of”. They are a kind of martial arts in which one attacks or defends with hands and feet anytime or anywhere, with occasional use of weapons. The physical training undertaken in Taekwondo is purposeful and fosters strength of mind through mental armament.

Taekwondo practitioners wear a uniform, known as a dobok. It is a combat sport and was developed during the 1940s and 1950s by Korean martial artists with experience in martial arts such as karate, Chinese martial arts, and indigenous Korean martial arts traditions such as Taekkyon, Subak, and Gwonbeop.
