Integrated Fighting Arts
Our Integrated Fighting Arts system and sessions are our own interpretation and expression of Jeet Kune Do (JKD) concepts. Training includes both stand-up and fighting on the ground. You will learn to strike effectively with your hands, feet, knees, elbows (and more), to apply close-quarter trapping, throws and take-downs, joint locks, submission holds, immobilisation's, chokes and strangulation's, escapes and reversals from holds - either for competition or for effective self-defence.There are many hundreds, if not thousands, of individual martial art systems in existence around the world. Our training methods and techniques have been drawn from a wide range of complimentary martial art systems from around the world, not just from one individual country or region. These arts include: Filipino Eskrima, Kali, Arnis and Silat; Russian Sombo (Cambo); Chinese Jun Fan; Thai Boxing; Western Boxing; Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu; Japanese Ju-Jitsu; French Savate, Korean Kuk Sool/Hapkido, and many more.
Our Integrated Fighting Arts programme runs on tuesdays and thursdays, see Class Times & Venues in the Information menu for further details. You are welcome to join us whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced martial artist. If you are new to martial arts, you may find it helpful to join one of our four week introductory courses, but this isn't essential.
