Yudansha (black belt ranks) invitations to test at Warrior Weekend 2020 were handed out at last night’s Instructors’ Meeting! We also worked teaching methods for full nelson, cobra lock, hammering vice, battering ram and more!

From Rio to Orlando, self-defense classes are catering to LGBTQ people

NBC National News ran a story including coverage of our recent LGBTQ+ self defense workshop with the Dallas Police Department! See Professor Chamberlain's picture and quote below.

nbcnews.com LGBTQ people face a heightened risk of hate violence, and this is part of the reason martial arts studios are tailoring classes to their specific needs.

Congratulations to our new class of Junior Black Belts, 2019! These young people have worked hard to make their mark and we look forward to what the future holds for all of them.
