The Monterey Self-Defense Meetup

Monterey, CA

The Monterey Self-Defense Meetup

This class is for anyone wishing to learn or master self-defense skills. Raw beginners and instructors in other systems encouraged to attend. The focus will be on building a working self defense skill-set:  This  includes the optimal use of bio-mechanics and physics for self-defense.  Instructor has been teaching the combat arts for around 17 years.

This class teaches stand-up fighting skills; i.e. striking (fists, palms, elbows, etc), striking interceptions / blocking, joint manipulation / breaking, and throwing techniques found in Judo / Shuai jiao.  We do not cover ground fighting--for that range, it is recommended you also attend Gracie Jiu-jitsu monterey.

There is a numbered list curriculum/class-schedule, students can work their way from White Sash to Black Sash if they wish. (New students may join at any time.)

The groups organizer is the founding instructor of "Flowing Combat" (流动战斗), a System developed for modern self-defense from the internal Kung-Fu arts of BaguaZhang (eight Triagram palms), Xingyquan (heart, mind fist) and Taijiquan.  

Mixed in with Kung-Fu is Military unarmed/armed combat, as taught to Military personnel and Special Operators across various services.  The teacher was formerly contracted by the Air Force to teach the foregoing, including sexual assault prevention, weapons disarming, use, and retention. 

Classes are Fees, but students may be asked to cover location/equipment costs as applicable per class/seminar;  Class will be hosted at Wave Street Studios, by the beach, or in a private back yard area (cement/ w/ martial arts pads). Each class may be filmed and put online and/or broadcast on local TV stations.
