Inner Warrior Martial Arts is a school dedicated to the study of principle based martial arts systems. We hope to instill internal understanding of movement, not just external mimicry. Using a free-flow self-defense method we teach techniques only as a starting point from which to branch out into the more organic process of creating and expressing your own movement based upon sound principles.
Training will help you develop self-confidence, awareness, fitness, flexibility, reduced levels of stress, and real tangible skills needed to defend yourself in a dangerous situation.
Our methods build fast and precise striking abilities, balance stealing/control, effortless power, blending single and multiple attacks, familiarity with traditional and modern weapons including: knife/counter knife, counter gun, stick work, and broadsword.
We draw upon many different arts to form our curriculum including: Fook Yueng Chuan, Tien Shan Chi Kung, Shoshin Ryu Karate Aiki Jitsu, Infinity Knife Concepts, Ba Gua, Kung Fu, Eskrima, Non-classical Gung Fu, Kenpo, Tae Kwon Do, Tang Soo Do, and Tai Chi. The main area of study is the Fook Yueng Chuan system under the guidance of Master Steve Smith the inheritor of the art.
