Adult Martial Arts Classes

 We at the GiYu Dojo Are Here to Help You Achieve

Adult classes are conducted in a classical Japanese format, in which we focus on developing and increasing martial skills in Kobudo.  Each class is taught in a non-competitive, relaxed, and friendly manner.  However, classes tend to be physical and emotionally demanding. 

We begin class with a review of the basics, such as Punching, Kicking, Grappling, Receiving, and Basic Techniques; all of which build a solid foundation on which you can grow your skill level.  We firmly believe that repeated practice of the basic techniques is the best path to mastery.

After review of the basics, students receive personal instruction in kata (fight sequence simulation), kaeshi waza (counter techniques), henka (variations), weapons practice and randori (sparring), all of which increases a students skill level dramatically.
