Here at the MA Academy, we combine many arts togrther to produce a REALISTIC way of fighting in a safe enviroment. He teaches many different law enforcment agencies so the format is geared towards street survival & REALISTC combat.
We at the MA Academy strive to find out what works & what doesn't work mon the street constantly adapting & learning more about our selves & the peop;e around us being humble and non violent.
We believe on training hard in constant repitition to accomplish a conditioned response, or what's known as "The Spirit of the Warrior" or "Mushin"
The physical aspect of the martial arts is only 10% of the training as vigorous as it may be. The mental & spiritual part of the arts makes up the rest of the 90%
Without the "Spirit of the Warrior" you have a pretty package with nothing in it.
These traits are found in the code of Bushido, in which we live by & are practiced in a family atmosphere.
