We are headed by Master Dan Lowman who has recently moved to the Fort Myers area.
We teach several Filipino and Indonesian martial arts in a small group or private setting.
The native arts of the Philippines go by many names including Arnis, Kali, Escrima/eskrima, and the generic term of FMA. (Filipino martial arts)
We teach multiple FMA arts. The main art we teach is Modern Arnis-Kombatan founded by Ernesto A Presas. It is primarily a Stick and knife art with aspects of the sword and empty hand applications.
We also teach the art of Kalis Ilustrisimo founded by Antonio "Tatang" Ilustrisimo, under the direction of Coach Arnold Narzo from the Philippines. This is mainly a bladed art that helps to emphasis range as well as attack and defense from various bladed weapons.
Both these arts will teach you the various aspects of defending against all kinds of various attacks from empty hand to blunt and bladed weapons.
Silat is a Generic term for the native arts of Indonesia and the surrounding areas. The Styles we focus on are mainly the flavors of Pencak and Kuntao Silat which focuses on the application of concepts and principles of the knife and empty hand. The best way to describe silat is the art of problem solving.
We teach real and effective self-defense. We believe that any self defense situation is very dynamic. It will never happen the way you planned. Because of this we teach based on a small number of concepts that when applied will allow you to be as dynamic and free flowing as the situation you find yourself in. Memorization of techniques are useless. It is the understanding of the concept behind the technique and the proper application that is important.
