Filipino Martial Arts
Filipino Martial Arts are called by a few different names such as Arnis, Modern Arnis, Kali, or Escrima and the art is dynamic and diverse. Each Filipino Martial Art (FMA) system may vary in the techniques it teaches. Rising Phoenix teaches a complete martial art that contains weapon training (stick applications), empty hand techniques such as strikes and blocks, pressure point applications, and joint locks, as well as kicks, and take downs. Edged weapon defense is also taught at higher rank levels.
About Our Martial Arts Classes
Our classes are unique. People of all fitness levels can take our kali/arnis class. No one has to “get in shape” before starting our class. Our instructors are highly trained and experienced and will work with you to guide you through learning techniques and ensure that you progress at your own pace. Classes help you to improve coordination, agility, mental focus, and fitness while learning skills to help you overcome potential threats. We teach the application behind every move, so there is no wondering what form movements do.
Beginning classes teach stick, empty-hand strikes, blocks, and self-defense techniques. The techniques taught help with everyday self defense starting on day 1. Leave the first class knowing how to escape from a wrist grab.
