mixed martial artsAs you progress through the three levels of Phase One, you will begin to work on your body mechanics, endurance, sensitivity, coordination and technical base.  

You will improve your fitness and self-discipline, while developing your coordination and basic self-defense capabilities in these fun high-energy classes.

muay thai kickboxingOur curriculum covers 5 primary arts or methods that are absolutely essential; Muay Thai Kickboxing, Kali Panantukan, Kali Weaponry, Mixed Grappling, and Jun Fan Martial Arts.  

We have found that studying different arts simultaneously is a great way to develop overall martial arts skills. Each art seems to help the assimilation of the others.  As these different arts mix an explosion of technique and training method develops.  

In time and after a student develops competency in each area they will naturally gravitate towards a specialty that fits their body type, training time, personality, life experience, etc.  We emphasize that all the methods will be valid for some students at some time.

In the Mixed Arts program development is measured by progression through 6 phases and various sub-levels.  The first 4 phases are curriculum and knowledge based while the last 2 phases are personal development phases.

Only your level of interest, training time, personality, and ability will determine your progress through Phases 1-6. You will be encouraged to advance but testing remains optional.  

We have created a non-traditional testing process where students are evaluated simultaneously in a multi-level, group where no student is ever singled out or embarrassed and test results are confidential.

This provides all the positive benefits of goal setting, benchmarking and personal development while eliminating the anxiety and embarrassment of similar testing formats.

Phase I: Base Curriculum Concepts (Beginner)


We will begin to work on your body mechanics, endurance, sensitivity, coordination and technical base. An emphasis on the high percentage, highly functional basic areas of each art is emphasized. In this way a strong foundation for advanced growth is established.

Phase One Level 1 / Phase One Level 2 / Phase One Level 3


Phase II: Sensitivity Training (Intermediate)


The more esoteric, coordination intensive areas of each art are developed at this phase. The goal is to learn to feel pressure and respond to your opponent’s mistakes without thinking. Hand and foot trapping, limb destructions and wrenches will all be taught using drills from Kali, Wing Chun and Silat. These are the drills and training methods that will take a life- time to refine and development but can be practiced at any age.

Phase Two Level 1 / Phase Two Level 2 / Phase Two Level 3


Phase III: Integrate the Arts (Advanced)


You will begin to integrate the arts, ranges and techniques you were taught.  As your skills come together to represent the complete martial spectrum you will improve your sense of distance, timing, rhythm and flow.  A student at these levels will be learning to adapt to situations instantly and truly realize Bruce Lees axiom to “use no way as way and have no limitation as limitation.”

Phase Three Level 1 / Phase Three Level 2 / Phase Three Level 3


Phase IV: Mental & Physical Changes (Physical)


In this phase your body will be adapting to the changes required by these arts.  Your musculature, body motion and general abilities will be visibly improved.

Phase Four Level 1 / Phase Four Level 2 / Phase Four Level 3


Phase V: Finding your own Direction (Mental)


In this phase you will be encouraged to follow your personal interests and specialize in a specific area of the art while striving to maintain a well rounded base ability.


Phase VI: Positive use of the Art (Spiritual)


This is the most rewarding phase of our system. You will be encouraged to find an outlet where you can use this art to help people in some way.

“The passion people often have for the martial arts is not about what’s practical or normal. It’s about expanding a special skill and point of view so far beyond what’s normal that it makes us extraordinary. All that time, money and effort put into mastering a martial art are about wringing as much magic and meaning out of human potential as we can.” – Keith Vargo
