Daniel Ancheta put together a really great self defense seminar for myself and a group of seven other ladies ranging in age from middle school through senior adult. In a two hour time period, he and another professional trainer led us through simple, effective jiujitsu based evasive movements to get out of bad situations such as potential sexual assaults. I would absolutely recommend EDGE Performance Training for anyone considering this type of training for yourself or group of friends.

The absolute best martial arts academy in Charlotte. The schedule was created for the average person (single mom, dad, working parents, singles etc.) with a limited availability and the location is ideal. The curriculum was created to build confidence, leadership and self-defense. They are heavily involved in giving back to the community. Looking forward to being apart of more great things in 2016 with Lotus Martial Arts Academy

For all that have interest in learning from a true martial arts master, Eric Jacobs is the real deal!!! I have made a commitment to this type of training many years ago and it has changed my life. The discipline that I have received allows me to adopt to any situation. Currently, I am a martial arts instructor and a former international champion. I have had the pleasure of knowing Eric for over twenty years, both on an educational and professional levels. Out of the many martial arts instructors and masters that I meet, few are as dedicated and focused as Master Eric Jacobs.

In my field of Martial Arts, I have acquired 35 yrs. extensive training and studying in several styles of Mixed Martial Arts. I understand that it requires a lot of discipline and patience too train any student. The passion of teaching more than one particular style of Mixed Martial Arts gives me a thrill of accomplishment as the student excels to the Black Belt level.

Teaching is a blessing. God gives us gifts and teaching is a gift to my husband and I. Showing students how to discover and apply their gifts is an exceptional opportunity. Empowering students to learn, lead and delegate is a great opportunity in an ever challenging world. Teaching personal protection and how to get motivated is exciting.

About

Martial arts have experienced an explosion of popularity since the 70s, and with that has come a flood of dojos, doctrines, and schools of thought on the subject. There is also a wide spectrum concerning the application of martial arts, ranging from visual art to sports to practical self-defense and combat. It is hard to sift through all of the information sometimes, and easy to confuse one application to another. I seek to provide a clear and concise pathway to practical self-defense, relying on the philosophy and traditions that have made martial arts so successful for thousands of years.

About

I am Jody Jay Watson. I offer fantasy artwork on t-shirts, ball caps, etc. I am the author of a poetry book, "Black Dragon Rapid Fire Warrior Secret Magical Book of Poetry". I also developed a new self-defense system, which I teach out of my home, and personally train people in self-defense. It is a great defense system for men and women. It is a new way to train with new forms, weight training, and new techniques I developed, such as the "hurricane strike", and the "rapid fire method", wherein you can throw 6 punches in one second. This system also teaches some pressure point striking, how to develop the killer instinct, and how to use it against bigger attackers and fear no one! It is a great new way for women to defend themselves along with men. The system is fast paced and explosive.

About

We have a Christ-centered martial arts program, and we begin classes with a prayer. On Tuesday evenings, we have a short time of devotions prior to beginning the class. We have classes on Monday and Tuesday evenings, from 6-7:30 on Mondays and 6:15 to 8:00 on Tuesdays. Our Saturday morning class meets from 10 to 11:30. We have some of the best Tang Soo Do training within 50 miles. Our school focuses on real-life self-defense training. We do not do the usual old, stale techniques that the instructor has no idea if they would ever work. The senior instructor has a background in law enforcement in PA and NC and private security as well. During the school year, we have a Grasshopper program; this is for kids ages age 4-7. The class meets every Tuesday, from 5:30 to 6:15. It has been one of our most popular classes. In our regular classes, the primary art is Tang Soo Do. We add some Kenpo, F.E.A.R.'s close -quarter combat, Sungja-do, and our unique brand of Sho Moo Do, which is a combination of Shotokan and Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do. Come by and observe a class, or take a free lesson.

Our students come to The Martial Arts Training Institute to study martial arts for different reasons, and each comes to us with varying degrees of ability. While our Style is known around the world as one of the most powerful forms of martial arts with its dynamic kicking and hand techniques, students easily learn at their own pace and ability level so they reach their own personal goals.
