Martial Arts

Karate Jujitsu

The foundation of the Karate Jitsu system emphasizes the Okinawan Kenpo and Ju Jitsu styles, incorporating traditional kata to enhance focus and balance. Techniques are derived from reality-based situations, making it a very practical defense system that is easy to learn and apply.

Shindo Jitsu

This is a solid Martial Arts Curriculum utilizing the arts of Kenpo, Ju Jitsu and Western Boxing. It is more of an offensive system incorporating sparring, fighting drills, boxing and kicking combinations. Kata is utilized to teach balance and movement.

Martial Arts

Kenpo

Kenpo

The Kenpo part tends to be "technique" based...rather than "kata" based like Japanese Karate. It has kata but is not emphasized as much. Kenpo is generally a hand technique system with few kicks, and when they do kick, it’s usually below the belt…70% hands 30% feet.

It’s quick... efficient and to the point.

Ju-Jitsu

Ju Jitsu

The Ju Jitsu system adds defensive techniques, which use an attacker's momentum against them utilizing locks, strikes and throws adapted for modern day contexts. Ju Jitsu works on the principle of redirecting an attacker's force and momentum against them, using the minimum necessary effort to produce the maximum effect.

This means you don't have to be particularly big or strong to do well.

Kata

Kata

The Japanese word “kata” means formal exercise and is performed in Japan outside of martial arts. Through kata we learn proper stance, focus, and transition between techniques.

Training Kata teaches us to strive for excellence, something that we can apply in almost every aspect of life.

Conceal and Carry Classes

Handgun Tactical Training

Handgun Tactical Training

As violent encounters have increased on our streets and in our homes, it is imperative that we train and prepare for unwilling involvement in such situations. At Shugosha Contemporary Martial Science we can provide a range of options from fundamentals, to advanced operational and logistical training, including low-light, multi-gun, reaction and stress drills. We are proud to offer training courses focused on enhancing your decision-making, shooting and physical skills required to increase survivability and mitigate violent situations. Our commitment is to offer you the best tools to increase your confidence and improve your ability to defend yourself, your home and your community through innovative and comprehensive training.

Women's Self Defense

Our approach to self defense is based on real-world tactics that work, such as awareness strategies that take into account the behavioral patterns of criminals. We teach avoidance as well as how NOT to be targeted in the first place. We apply the knowledge of predator typologies and incorporate it into fighting strategies and tactics to include vocalization, assertiveness, and boundary setting. With years of martial arts training and fighting, it becomes apparent that some techniques work while others do not. We will teach you the techniques that work. These are simple and effective techniques that are taught to protect you in real-world situations.

Women's Self Defense

Corporate Seminars

Proactive, forward thinking companies do what is necessary to ensure that their executives are mentally, emotionally and physically healthy. These companies understand that by providing their executives with benefits like wellness programs, insurance, training/education, and more they are investing in their own future as a company. We recommend a self-defense, safety/awareness program that would add value to the employee which in turn adds valuable resources to your company. Other than the primary benefit of teaching executives how to avoid, deal with and/or physically defend themselves against a physical attack-there are very significant reasons why a company might want to offer such a program. Here are some great reasons to include personal protection training.

  • Employees who are capable of protecting themselves are more confident.
  • People who feel safer, learn to recognize, handle and manage fear in all aspects of life and are less prone to the debilitating effects of stress.
  • Martial Arts develops assertiveness while reducing aggressiveness.
  • Self-defense training improves creative problem solving skills.
  • Martial Arts-based self-defense training has been shown to improve employee discipline, morale and enhance teamwork.
