Basic Self Defense

Spinning-Kicks don't work for Everyone

Earn a Black Belt in Goshin-Jutsu.

Round-Kicks, Spinning-Techniques, and Jumping Chicken Kicks in a skirt, dress slacks with coat & tie, high heels, or for a disabled person just isn’t practical. Also, many folks just want to get to the basics of self-protection.

The techniques in this program are taken from the martial arts of T'ai Chi, Wing Chun, Philippine Stick Fighting and Taijutsu. You will learn:

• Elbow and knee strikes
• Eye gouges, groin strikes and hair-pulling takedowns
• Fundamentals of stick-fighting (translates to a walking cane)
• Learn to apply leverage instead of strength
• Use ink pens and other small articles as weapons

Do you have a question about an assault that you or someone you know has experienced? Perhaps you have a “What if” type question. Bring it to class and let’s explore the solutions together.

Goshin-Jutsu is ideal for:

• Single women
• Mothers with small children
• Men and Women with various disabilities
• Couples who wish to train in Self Defense together
• Elderly Folks
• Anyone who simply want to know self defense without flash or flare
