WHAT IS "WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS?"
WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS is a fitness and self-defense program developed by former U.S. Special Operations soldiers. It's derived from ancient martial arts training practices, but it has been adapted to fit the needs of modern warriors. It's a workout program that's perfect for anyone who wants to SAVE TIME, BURN MORE CALORIES, and LEARN A BONAFIDE SELF-DEFENSE ART that's practiced by our nations most elite warriors. No gym equipment is required and it can be done anywhere--such as in a park, on the beach, in a parking garage, or on a beautiful scenic mountaintop.
Our unique training is designed to CHALLENGE YOUR WILL, but more importantly it's designed to BUILD YOU UP WITHOUT INJURY! This training is the foundation of success in everything we do. It's the kind of fitness we're doing AFTER we've been selected to become a Special Operations soldier, made it all the way through our initial training (such as the Army Special forces "Q" course or Navy SEAL BUDs), served on a team, then been selected for an even more elite unit! It's designed to take the toughest, strongest, fastest, and smartest soldiers in the world and make them TOUGHER, STRONGER, FASTER, SMARTER, MORE HIGHLY SKILLED, and MORE ADAPTABLE.
The tools used to do this are the WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS stick fighting drills. They are derived from our own martial arts training--and they are the "preparation course" that prepares the mind, body, and spirit for our complete self-defense training program that turns an already elite warrior into the finest fighting machine in the modern world. The WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS drills combine the wisdom of trainers and athletes from the Olympic, professional sports, and martial arts communities with methods developed by the world’s most elite special operations units including U.S. Navy SEALs, U.S. Army Rangers, Special Forces Green Berets, and Tier-1 counter-terrorism units. But now ANYONE CAN DO LEARN IT.
WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS is unlike any other training system in the world. Not only will it allow you to achieve unprecedented results in strength, speed and cardiovascular endurance, it will actually RE-WIRE SYNAPTIC CONNECTIONS IN YOUR BRAIN--creating synergy between your mind and your body. This means that it will enhance your athleticism, coordination, balance, dexterity and reaction-time more than any other fitness program. Many people still hold the false belief that we are born with a certain level of coordination and athletic ability that cannot be changed. This myth is entirely untrue. WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS uses a progression of total-body movements that have been perfected in warrior cultures across the globe since the dawn of civilization. They strengthen the neural pathways that are encoded into our evolutionary biology--unlocking our ultimate human potential.
Beyond mere athletic ability, WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS movements provide the same holistic, emotional or spiritual benefits achieved through meditative practices like Yoga and Tai-Chi. However, unlike meditative practices, WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS is the gateway to our real-world combative arts that are designed for survival and self-defense. Therefore, even if you pursue WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS only for fitness purposes, you will dramatically increase your ability to defend yourself without even realizing it. In just one year, Warrior Spirit Fitness (Fairfax) has become the largest self-defense Meetup group in the Washington, DC area and has won "Best Fitness Program in Fairfax, VA for 2016."

Please watch a few brief previews of our training on our YouTube Channel:
--Below is U.S. Army Veteran and Instructor Nick demonstrating some of our stickfighting art. It's a unique fighting art that's designed to take down multiple attackers very quickly using only improvised weapons that can be found or carried in any environment--but in addition to enabling students to protect themselves with an improvised weapon, it also builds superior levels of fitness and physical ability--this is the beginning of our training. We call it "WARRIOR SPIRIT FITNESS":
--Below is U.S. Marine Veteran and Instructor Damean demonstrating our "empty hand" fighting art. This course is designed for anyone who wants to be able to effectively defend themselves if they find themselves unarmed and unable to escape. The key is that our ways are not only the most EFFICIENT and EFFECTIVE ways, but they are also simple and easy to master in a relatively short amount of time--this is "WARRIOR SPIRIT SELF-DEFENSE":
--Below is U.S. Army Veteran and Instructor Justin demonstrating some of our marksmanship training. This training teaches the essential safety, weapons handling, and marksmanship that every responsible citizen gun handler needs for self-defense or home defense--this is "WARRIOR SPIRIT GUNFIGHTING":
--Finally, here's a video that has some footage of our students who started their training this past year:
