SELF DEFENSE, KALI,
JEET KUNE DO CONCEPTS/ JUN FAN GUNG FU
At Relentless MMA Self Defense is one of our TOP concerns. The gym was founded on the principal being able to protect oneself from a bigger, stronger, and even faster opponent/attacker. All of our techniques in ALL of our classes are aimed toward that end.
In our Muay Thai class we work being able to throw punches, kicks, knees and elbows, while at the same time being able to defend the same. In our Free Style Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Submission Wrestling classes we focus on how to perform throws, sweeps, takedowns, "GET HOME SAFELY." that's it, we believe once someone tries to stop you from going home to your family and loved ones then they are a threat. We teach everyone to first try to "Verbally Deescalate" or talk your way out, after that, walk away, if those two methods don't work then.... Well then they shouldn't have tried to stop you from going home. If you use a Muay Thai kick with a Judo foot sweep to get home then thats fine. If you just start screaming at a attacker and throw things at them till they leave you alone that's fine. If you have to poke someone in the eye and run a mile, climb a fence, and break a car window to set off a alarm to get home safely then that's fine too. We also understand things some martial arts or fighting systems don't is that "Situation Dictates Response", sometimes the situation is you might be carrying groceries so you can't do a series of punches and kicks, the situation might be, you're 40-60 years old and can't do a head kick, or as some styles suggest kick a weapon out of someones hand. We try to stick to simple principals, using our minds, abilities, and environment to give us the highest chance of success in everything we do. When it comes to self defense we want our students to be empowered with knowledge and skills that at some point may save their life if they do find themselves in a horrible situation but if they don't we want them to feel comfortable, and confident in a variety of situations, along with the knowledge to know when trouble is coming.
We accomplish this by training in blunt and edge weapons offensively and defensively along with working with Firearm defense and with regular field trips to the shooting range for those interested to learn more about firearms. We believe in order to stop a thing we must first understand it. Many styles have come up over the past few years boasting weapons defense but have not taken the time work with people who have worked in live fire situations. Because of this the instructors at Relentless MMA have spent time training with various military personal from the basic to the special forces level to bring the the BEST, most KNOWLEDGEABLE, and HIGHEST QUALITY instruction we possibly can. We are RELENTLESS in our pursuit of better training methods. Ways to improve ourselves, and our students. Our goal with our self defense class is not to just make you feel safe but to make sure if anything bad might happen you have the ABSOLUTE BEST information and training on how to "Get Home Safely".
