a program based on intelligent, scientific responses to high-probability
attacks (the curriculum is rooted in classical Japanese martial
arts though the training is progressive, modern, focused on safety,
• Increased awareness and avoidance of
high risk situations
• Using martial arts strategies to engage
and win the non-physical “battles” we face in the everyday
world of work, home, and school. We don't give you the "answers"
as to how you should live your life, but we provide you with tools
of strategy and tactics so that you can more fully realize the life
you imagine leading.
we offer is intelligent and effective self-protection and personal
life-enhancement through progressive martial arts training. We study
modern living strategies based on cross-cultural principles of warriorship.
Our training is serious, but our classes are both friendly and fun.
While we have had training in
the Wausau area since 1992, our practice has, to this point in time,
been relatively low-key with little to no advertisement. You will
not find a Yellow Pages ad for our school, and the only way to find
the training has been through an internet search or word of mouth.
There are no high-pressure sales
tactics; we're interested only in providing quality martial arts
instruction to people who are a good fit for our program.
