What we're about

Hello, my name is Andrew Brown and I will be teaching this class!

I have survived my whole life noticing the everyday threats and avoiding them by miles and millimeters.

After 15 years of martial arts, 20 years of athletics and 30 years of life, I have a wealth of knowledge and am eager to share it with you!

During each and every class, I teach three aspects of personal self defense:

Awareness - Know yourself, know your surroundings and little can harm you.

Avoidance - A great master once said, "While I am at the top of the mountain, the brigand at the bottom is of no consequence."

Attack - Fighting is for fools and drunks! Escape at the first opportunity! But...when a threat goes unnoticed and you are in a corner, the awful decision to use force is the final option.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge and teaching you skill.

If you only had 3 Hours to teach something that has taken 15 years of consistent study, practice, and experience, how would you tell someone about it? My name is Andrew Brown and I have been studying, practicing and experiencing martial arts for 15 years. I am more than passionate about my practice and proud of my experience teaching others. I have many success stories, but this is not the place to discuss them, this little corner of the internet. In person is the best way to learn. Every teacher I have ever had is only made more serious and more effective by working together in person. Each Seminar will be a deep dive into the subject matter. Currently, we offer a Comprehensive Tai Chi Seminar and a Survival Self Defense Seminar. I will be teaching alternate Sundays and may have to cancel some, so please be sure to check www.Circulation.life for the latest schedule.

Martial Arts is for Everyone!

Andrew Brown will be teaching the greatest of arts, Martial Arts 武道. I welcome any and all people who want to partake in the cultivation of their qi pill. I welcome any and all people who want to know the feeling of walking without fear. I welcome any and all people who want to improve themselves regardless of the trials. I welcome any and all people who wish to change their life with Mind-Body practice. Martial Arts 武道 has done all of these things for me and I am happy to share this, greatest of all my skills, with you. I welcome any and all challengers who wish to compete for fun with agreed upon rules. I welcome any and all students with warmth and promise to never injure you. Fair warning, pain is in the mind. When doing horse stance, you feel extreme pain, but it is the mind that controls the situation until it doesn't. Let the body die and your mind will take over. I promise to never push you further than I think you can handle. As I am the teacher, it is my duty to be wary of your state of mind and body. I promise to be fair and approachable. You can ask me anything about anything and I will do my best to give you a true answer. I promise to not lie intentionally. I may get things wrong, but I want my beliefs criticized and questioned. I have no problem debating the facts of whatever matter I speak upon. I can only improve by learning of a false understanding.
