    I have been a student at Legacy Martial Arts for almost a year, having moved to Florida from South Carolina, and I soon hope to test for my 3rd degree Black Belt. Under the instruction of Master Greg, I have developed my strength, increased my knowledge of Taekwondo forms, kicking, blocks, punches, strikes, all important self-defense techniques. If you are looking for a Taekwondo school in the Port Orange/Daytona Beach/Ormond Beach area, I strongly recommend trying Legacy Martial Arts. It's a great school!

      Been coming for nearly 2 years with my Wife to this tradition style Japanese DZR Jujitsu, which was the first Jujitsu taught to Americans in America, regardless of gender or nationality and started originally in Hawaii in the 40s. This is an adult class held every Monday from 7:30 to 9:30pm. Exercise intensity is light to medium. Everyone is very nice, kind and cautious. This is not geared for sport competition. It is designed heavily for a smaller our weaker person to use against a bigger or stronger attacker. We train in many self defense techniques involving standing, kneeling and grappling, although we try to avoid heavy grappling because in real life bad guys or bullies often have other bad friends (and weapons) and by remaining on our feet or knees, we can transition to the next assailant with more options, escape all together or restrain until the threat is removed or authorities arrive. We're not trying to score points, we're trying to diffuse and protect... disable and disarm if at all possible... go home alive as safely as possible. As such, training ultimately entails not only stopping an aggressor with appropriate measures, it also eventually includes incapacitating, disabling and disarming attackers using moves that are illegal in sports due to high risk of injury. Those are our choice to use to protect ourselves if the threat warrants it. We're also taught how to communicate with authorities from a safe distance away from the threat, after the fact.

      We are so happy to have found Mr. Wendell Diamai. We were looking for a self-defense instructor for our daughter. She wasn’t interested in having to wear uniforms or having to compete. After our first meeting with Mr. Diamai she was hooked. He is focused on training and teaching. He is very patient and articulate and flexible with our schedule. We have high regards and we respect his teaching abilities. His students are very diverse and in different age brackets. He has students that have been with him for years. That alone tells you something. We plan on having him as her instructor for a very long time.

      About

      I have more than 40 years of experience in martial arts and self-defense. I have taught self-defense privately and at the college/university level. My specialty is teaching people with no experience. My training objectives are as follows: 1) introduce the fundamentals of self-defense without weapons 2) teach a series of martial arts techniques that can be used for self-defense 3) demonstrate and teach methods of integrating self-defense techniques that minimize the risk to the defender 4) introduce self-defense based strategy for executing self-defense techniques that will give the defender the best chance of overpowering and/or escaping an attacker After my training, the students: (1) have a repertoire of self-defense techniques that they can execute effectively, (2) have an increased level of confidence regarding self-defense, and (3) realize that they have the option of confronting and defending against an attack instead of complying with an attacker.
