What we're about

We are a self-defense event company and traveling martial arts school. We advocate for a world focused on respect, harmony, inspiration, and living in calmness of mind. We inspire people to go from being victims, to becoming the attacker. Our classes and workshops cover traditional martial arts techniques, and are taught by Grand Master Gene Perceval and his assistant Dan. The styles we teach are tae kwon do, jiu jitsu, aikido, judo, and Okinawan style karate. We travel to Long Island for our Self-Defense Workshops (https://www.martialartsmbs.com/workshops) and we serve Manhattan as well. We individualize our workshops for your social group (family and friends), business, or organization. Grand Master Gene Perceval, who has been teaching for over fifty seven years, is the first black belt in the world (https://www.martialartsmbs.com/history.php) to be tested under Tae Kwon Do when it first became an international organization.
