General warm-up and cool-down: Traditional warm-up and cool-down exercises prepare students for the training ahead and assists the body returning to a normal relaxed state respectively.
Foundation training: Without a solid foundation it would not be possible to develop an all round martial artist. Such training typically involves a repetitive series of individual techniques (punching, kicking, ect..) It is through repetition that correct technique, power and speed be developed.
Pad Work: Frequent use of kick shields and focus mitts serve to further develop the techniques, power and speed. In addition they provide a sense of realism when impacting an opponent.
Solo Drills: Specific drill sets built around responses to "Habitual Acts of Physical Violence" (HAPV) to train the body to automatically remember a sequenced combination of effective techniques.
Two Person Drills: Pre-arranged two person drills supporting the solo practices develop movement, timing and distance skills. These drill sets incorporate the various techniques of punching and kicking, joint locks, strangulations, throws and techniques of restraint, both standing and on the ground.
Self Defense: Only constant drilling of the responses associated with habitual acts of physical violence will a student of the martial arts develop to a point of proficiency where they are able to confidently negotiate an appropriate resolve to situations where they may have no choise but to defend themselves.
Kata: Kata are a series of choreographed moves in a fixed pattern originally intended to aid students in remembering techniques when training by themselves. This practice is the very reason karate, as an art, has been preserved and passed down to this day.
