Group classes are dynamic, challenging, interesting, and most of all...FUN! Classes normally begin with some type of functional warm-up. During this time, students engage in aerobically based movement that features the same body mechanics required in martial arts training. Once students are adequately “loosened up,” group class will focus on one or two specific aspects of the PMA curriculum. These include:
Speed & Agility
Speed and agility training may include kickboxing drills, work with weapons from the Filipino martial arts, or specific evasive movement.
Striking and Kicking
Striking and kicking practice and drills are essential elements of all martial arts. Specific drills using the focus pads, kicking shields, or other pieces of equipment will help coordination, build upper and lower body strength and greatly increase stamina. Students may work on previously learned skills, or be introduced to a new method of kicking or striking based on our wide range of inclusive styles.
Self-Defense & Counter Aggression
Students learn the essential skills necessary to deal with both physical and verbal aggression. The PMA focus is real world self-defense training. You will learn proven techniques that include defenses against punches, kicks, grabs, chokes, and weapons. Self-defense is an integral part of group class, and teaches students the movements and reactions necessary to overcome any aggressive situation.
Cerebral Self Defense
A martial art consists of more than physical movement, it is also a mental mindset. Students are taught how to evaluate aggressive behavior. They also learn to deal with overpowering personalities, and to become empowered by their knowledge of self-defense. This aspect of training directly transfers to daily life when dealing with any stressful situation or overpowering circumstances.
All of the Martial Arts taught in our dynamic group classes are also available on a private or semi-private basis. Whether your interest is in private one-on-one instruction, training with a friend, family training, or a group of friends who want to learn specific skills - we can create a training program for you!
