AMAC’s Youth Self Defense program is designed to give your child a well rounded self defense plan and gives the kids an introduction to all of our adult programs that we offer here.
The program is composed of 3 foundational areas of study
Youth Self Defense 10-15 years old
Striking program incorporates principles from the following 2 programs.
Jeet kune do Bruce Lee’s “Jun-Fan” Jeet Kune Do “Way of the Intercepting Fist” (JKD) takes the best the martial arts world has to offer in the area of self-defense and personal protection and combines it all into one simple, easy‐to‐learn, highly‐effective system. Every range of self defense is covered ‐ kicking, kneeing, striking, trapping, joint locks, grappling, blunt (stick) and edged (knife) weapons, and much more.
Warriors Self Defense The Warriors Legacy Self Defense program at AMAC is designed to teach effective self defense in multiple environments. Based on the background and experience of Sifu Alan Baker the program combines elements from multiple martial arts, defensive tactics and self defense systems.
Grappling program incorporates principles from the following 2 programs
Gracie Jiu jitsu Gracie jiu jitsu is a highly effective self‐defense system of ground fighting. It is designed to allow a smaller, weaker person to defend his or her self in a real world situation that goes to the ground.
Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) the AMAC Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) program is the primary no GI grappling program at the school. What makes it unique is it is specifically formulated for grappling without a uniform or a “GI”. It also heavily focuses on the possibility of your opponent striking you while grappling.
Filipino Kali Kali offers outstanding self‐defense training. This class will teach you to use and defend yourself against a large variety of common weapons, regardless of whether or not you have a weapon yourself.
We take the foundational principles from all three of these program areas and incorporate it in our Youth Self Defense program so our kids have the basic foundational principles needed to defend themselves.
