Practical Self Defense and Kung Fu Fighting classes

We are very pleased to announce new Practical Self Defense and Kung Fu Fighting classes with the City of San Rafael at the main community center.self-defense-sifu-scott-jensen-san-rafael-10000-victories-Rachel Jensen

This class is open to complete beginners, all Tai Chi students, and people from other styles of martial arts. If you are looking for beginning Practical Self Defense lessons you have found them.  The Practical Self Defense and Kung Fu Fighting classes are oriented towards new students and will include detailed and careful instruction with plenty individual coaching and attention.

 

Learn Good Defensive Skills First

Erik_4288 x 2848_20111222__DSC4477_RJThe first thing everyone learns are the basic skills of good guard position, covering up and dodging.  We have a detailed set of dodging drills that will help you learn how to dodge attacks from any angle or direction.

As you learn dodging slowly, carefully and safely, you’ll also be learning basic punching and footwork skills.  Good footwork is key for both good offense and defense.

Safety equipment

You will need safety equipment, this includes proper boxing gloves, mouth piece, and groin protector for men, and chest protector for women.  Headgear is optional, but encouraged.  You can obtain gear self-defenseform us (thank you for your support) or on your own.  Please check to make sure you get the right gear before you buy it.  Bag gloves and foam gloves will not work.  They do not have enough padding.  This is a light contact class, and big padded boxing training gloves make it comfortable and safe for everyone.  You want your partner to have the softest gloves with plenty padding too, don’t you?

After students develop good motor skills and self control they will begin supervised free sparring with partners.  This allows you to develop real confidence in your abilities and to acquire real self defense skill you can count on.

Advanced Students

northern-shaolin-erik-palmer-sifu-scott-jensen-san-rafael-10000-victories-Advanced students receive individual coaching and learn more advanced tactics and learn to include kicking.  This is not a class where we will teach you kicking.  To learn kicking skills please take the Northern Shaolin class immediately before this class.  Or one of our other Northern Shaolin classes.

Advanced students with falling and rolling skills will learn to include tripping, sweeping and later throwing techniques.  If you do not have rolling and falling skills please take the Northern Shaolin class immediately before this class.  Or one of our other Northern Shaolin classes..

If you have the fire, you can join our fighting team and compete in tournaments and matches!  Our students are champions and compete successfully.

Please note this class does not include warm up exercises.  Please warm up prior to class and get your gear on so we can get right down to training and playing.

Practical Self Defense and Kung Fu Fighting classes with the City of San Rafael are held in the main community center on B street between Safeway and the Bocce ball courts.  San Rafael is centrally located in Marin and the community center is less than five minutes from the freeway.  There is plenty of free parking.  The main hall of the community center is a beautiful room.  One of the nicest in Marin!

These new Monday night Practical Self Defense and Kung Fu Fighting classes start slightly later than my other classes at 6:30 PM so it should be easier for people to make class after work.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me, either by email at info@10000victories.com, or by phone 415-455-9467.
