Tsun Jo® Wing Chun Self Defense
Tsun Jo® is a strategy based martial art that helps the practitioner develop the most of what he or she has to maximize self defense. The style largely descended from Bruce Lee's adapted Wing Chun Kung Fu. The goal of Tsun Jo® is for survival fighting & is intended for ending an altercation as quickly as possible without taking damage. It focuses on what is absolutely essential. It does not contain forms of any kind. The training methods used such as a partner work, multiple striking and kicking surfaces and equipment, as well as other unique training methods have proven to provide the best results for time invested.
Tsun Jo classes are offered at the following times:
Monday 7:30p (all levels)
Tuesday 10:30a & 7:15p /Thursday 10:30a & 6:00p (Fundamentals)
Tuesday 6 p / Wednesday 6:15p (advanced students)
Saturday 11:00a (all levels)
Tsun Jo® Ground Defense Grappling
Students have the option of learning Tsun Jo® Ground Defense Grappling. This is largely based on No-Gi Jiu Jitsu, a form of submission grappling. A t-shirt or rash guard and pants or shorts are worn instead of a gi or jacket.
If an altercation moves to the ground, do you know what to do? Ground defense is an essential tool for a well rounded self defense practitioner. Learn to escape locks, chokes, holds, and grabs as well as counterattacks while on the ground. In this class we emphasize strong camaraderie and no ego with our training partners in order to develop the skills intended.
