Did you know that the self-defense techniques found in many of today’s most popular martial arts such as Krav Maga and Jiu-Jitsu were derived from traditional Kung Fu systems like Choy Li Fut, the specific type of kung fu taught at White Dragon Schools? Modern systems of Martial Arts’ aim to distill the self-defense knowledge of traditional Chinese systems in order to adapt them to the needs of today.
However, systems like Krav Maga, Kenpo, and even Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu often leave out important techniques and practices found in traditional kung fu that are essential in producing a well rounded and fully capable martial artist. For example, how would a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or submission grappling student handle multiple person attacks or an armed assailant? Would the Muay Thai Kickboxing, Karate, or Boxing student be comfortable fighting on the ground, or would he or she be helpless to stop a submission grappler?
At White Dragon, you’ll learn how to defend yourself in any situation and at any range. From the most effective stand-up techniques like kicking and striking, to close-in fighting using elbows and knees, or even if you find yourself on the ground, you’ll develop the self-defense ability to stop an assailant. You’ll also study how to use common objects as weapons for self-defense and even how to stop armed attackers. Learn how to restrain someone using submission holds and Choy Li Fut joint-locking techniques as well as how to quickly disable multiple attackers if the situation requires.
