OVERVIEW

Earn Your Black Belt In The Most Well-Rounded

Training Program in Pike Creek Delaware.

Fusion Freestyle Mixed Martial Arts Studio of American Karate provides an age-appropriate self-defense program that teaches conflict resolution in Pike Creek Wilmington Delaware for children and adults. Our American Karate programs teach students to respond and deal with realistic situations using tactical Mixed Martial Arts self-defense training complimented with Zen Yoga and Tai Chi traditions. Our self-defense classes improve health and fitness while teaching valuable real-world skills. While students earn their Black Belt, our diverse teaching methods use an integration of both classical "old school" and contemporary "new school" methodologies.

As an American Karate based Mixed Martial Arts school, we offer an approach to self-defense that adapts to any and all situations in all ranges of hand-to-hand combat not bound by any style limitations. Concepts include an arsenal of stand up, throws, striking, joint locks, grappling, kicking, and chokes while fitness focuses on physical improvements. Our training offers a truly hybrid approach to karate that maximizes one’s effectiveness as a well-rounded martial artist by using a wide range of principles that have been carefully selected to create our curriculum. Because of this, we produce students with the most competent abilities in proficient self-defense skills as they progress to Black Belt.

Korea, Japan, China, Brazil, and Okinawa each have martial arts systems unique to their native lands. The beauty of American Karate is that it represents the United States and the American way of life that has become a version of Karate that is a staple in our communities dating back to the 1940s. It is an American type of karate that offers a system of techniques and strategies which are geared to provide a person with a means to effectively defend themselves in the event of a personal attack. It's a system by which a person can condition their body physically and mentally arriving at a state of well-being, self-confidence and control while teaching practitioners how to neutralize an attacker in the blink of an eye.

Who are our American Karate self-defense classes for? The answer to the question is simple: ‘everyone’! Yes, every single person, regardless of age, can benefit from self-defense classes. If you want to feel safer on the streets at night and live life confident that you can handle a difficult situation brought about by a thug, self-defense classes are for you. Or if you want your child to be able to handle themselves and how to take action when walking away is not an option. Learning self-defense techniques is one of the most important aspects of just about every martial art. Yes, martial arts are commonly perceived as a fighting system, but a major part of fighting is being able to defend yourself.

FFMMA CURRICULUM

ZEN YOGA techniques make our curriculum different from all martial arts schools. Each class we warm up with health and fitness traditions rooted in Buddhist psychology. The basic principle of Zen Yoga is that simple breathing, movement and stretching exercises. Soft meditation music is played for the duration of our classes to support Zen Yoga techniques.

Tai Chi is a form of exercise workout training to build natural muscle with an emphasis on body-weight, breathing, and using gravity with basic martial arts techniques. Each and every class we warm up by focusing on both aerobic and strength training with minimal equipment to increase flexibility and balance. 

Kenpo Techniques are modern concepts of fierce vital point striking methods derived from Chinese Kung Fu and  Wing Chun. It is known for striking with lightning speed using quick moves in rapid-fire succession. Students are taught to emphasize pinpoint and highly accurate strikes as part of our curriculum. 

Jujitsu techniques are modern concepts derived from Tegumi, Chin Na, and Wrestling as a mix of grappling methods designed for stand-up and ground fighting that blend joint locks, chokehold, and pinning techniques. Students are taught these submissions and compliance-based techniques in each and every class. 

Judo techniques are modern concepts of break-falls, rolling, throwing, sweeping, and takedown techniques. Balance, timing, strategy, and tactics to get into positioning are all part of these techniques. Students learn body-slamming techniques to meet attacker force with the ground and also dealing with being taken to the ground.

Goju techniques are modern concepts of Naha-te hard striking and Aiki soft grappling techniques blended with iron body conditioning drills for fitness to withstand the rigors of self-defense. Students learn breathing drills and matching attackers' force with force using the oldest of martial arts training traditions.

Tanbojutsu techniques are modern concepts of weapon-based stick fighting with a short staff. Students learn slender, blunt, hand-held sticks. In our curriculum, we believe the stick is something common that a student may actually come up against such as a cane, club, baseball bat, broom, or crowbar.

Kickboxing techniques are modern concepts of Western Boxing, Muay Thai, and Karate drills, exercises, and training methods. Our classes offer an 8-point striking system useing long-range kicks, knees, elbow strikes, and evasive footwork maneuvers.
