Each class consists of warm-ups and training. We begin by warming and strengthening our bodies. Next we begin training. Our training consists of learning new techniques, practicing known techniques and applying both. To aid in learning we use a 6-step process. The 6-step process takes students from seeing a new technique to being confident in it's application. Creating good habits are the foundation for most learning. Our 6-step process leads to correct practicing and good habits leading to more efficient learning. Our process also helps those that are uncomfortable with physical contact.
