What is Sanshinkai?

Translated as three power society, Sanshinkai is made up out of 5 martial art styles; Isshinryu, Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, and Jujitsu. Sanshinkai is an American style of karate with the purpose of creating a well rounded martial artist. Mind, body and spirit are the three powers of Sanshinkai. With roots from around the world, students will learn everything from kicks and punches to grappling techniques and groundfighting.

American Karate is a hybrid system of martial arts that employs techniques and systems from many of the
traditional Asian styles. American Karate incorporates the most useful elements of Japanese, Okinawan and Korean styles. Karate focuses on sparring and kata, but also includes a practical self defense regimen.

Jujitsu, or “art of gentleness” was developed among the samurai of feudal Japan. Jujitsu manipulates an opponent’s force against him, rather than trying to out muscle or overpower the attack. In contrast to many other martial arts that center around striking, Jujitsu focuses heavily on joint locks, throws and submission techniques.

Judo, or the “gentle way” is a modern martial art and Olympic sport that developed out of Jujitsu, where the object is to either throw or takedown an opponent to the ground. Judo develops physical coordination, balance and fast reflexive action. Instead of brute strength, Judo uses leverage, balance and momentum to counter an attack from an opponent.

Isshinryu, or “one heart way” stresses close in techniques that are more practical, and normally done from a natural stance. Isshinryu places importance on maintaining stability while eliminating wasted motion.

Tae Kwon Do, or the “foot fist way” emphasizes kicks thrown from a mobile stance, employing the leg’s greater reach and power compared to the arm. Tae Kwon Do includes a system of blocks, kicks, punches and open-hand strikes.

Real Life Self Defense®

This idea was birthed from the streets of this world and the environments within. This program has been developed through much research, experience and perseverance. The value of it represents the value of your life.

The Real Life Self Defense course is a high energy, hands on course that covers many practical techniques against common attacks. The core of the training is based in Krav Maga. These techniques are taught to the Israeli military and implemented in some of the most dangerous places on Earth. Everything from grabs and chokes, to knife and gun defenses are covered in detail and practiced in a fun and safe environment.

It is a system that is always evolving and adapting to meet the needs of innocent people and enables them to combat the violent attacks being thrown at them, especially women and teenage girls. Crime statistics state that every 22.4 seconds a violent crime occurs. Our goal is to offset this alarming statistic by training people in self defense and make them more confident and self assured.

Our slogan is, "Be a Survivor, not a Statistic!"
