Miss Judy was an instructor at Action Karate. From the beginning we liked her demeanor and how much she knew about karate and form and just work out in general. She was very good in helping my kids learn martial arts and also discipline and respect and focus. We enjoyed having her as an instructor and our kids placed in the top spots at the karate tournaments thanks to her! She sure knows her martial arts!
Welcome to Fusion Freestyle Martial Arts, Pike Creek Delaware's Premier American Karate Self-Defense & Combat-Fitness Academy. Our classes are dedicated to training families and individuals of all ages karate based self-defense & combat-fitness. Each class is taught by utilizing combat-fitness cardio exercise while enhancing self-defense hand-to-hand combat skills. Combat-fitness conditioning is a a traditional militant boot-camp exercise form that uses minimum equipment, targets and floor mats to maximize real world self-defense techniques. In each class our goal is to build strength, confidence, focus, self-discipline, respect & leadership while making our students capable of protecting themselves. The power of our combat-fitness kicks, punches, knees, elbows and grappling techniques are designed for effective exercises focused on developing upper body, lower body and core strength. Our combat-fitness workout improves muscle tone, increases cardiovascular fitness, lower stress levels, increases energy, and greater flexibility. Our training is based on modern American Karate concepts that build a broader awareness of self-defense towards violence while staying physically fit and would not be considered as a sport. American Karate uses freestyle training to stay dynamic with no rules, boundaries or limits while using the process of fusion to build techniques sourced from many martial arts forms. American Karate is designed using extremely efficient hand-to-hand combat self-defense maneuvers to help bully proof children and prevent adults from becoming victims of physical assaults. American Karate encourages students to avoid confrontation, attempt to retreat, or escape from trouble, lose their ego and defend themselves only as a last resort. If circumstances become impossible or unsafe, we train to finish a violent struggle as quickly as possible using the minimal force required to repel the attack. Our philosophy is focused on making a difference in the Delaware community by teaching families, adults, teens and children invaluable life skills through development of the body, mind and spirit using our martial arts system. Our Fusion Freestyle Martial Art System is a revolutionary American Karate program that specializes in the study of general combat-fitness training to use quick counter attacks that form self-defense techniques for dangerous and unexpected situations. We believe that one should train in the physical, mental and spiritual ways of our martial art system while learning highly skilled hand-to-hand combative techniques solely for physical fitness, self-discipline and self-protection. We are located behind the Pike Creek Shopping Center inside of The Delaware Swim and Fitness Center. We are quickly accessible from Wilmington, Pike Creek, Hockessin, Newark and Bear just off route 7, in the beautiful community hills of Pike Creek.

I met TJ as he was growing his New Jersey based training program. Prior to this, I had practiced Aikido (Kokikai) for several years and Kung Fu (North Dragon - Lung Jop Pai) for a couple of years. I had also been a fan of Bruce Lee since the 1970's, and the opportunity to talk to somebody about Jeet Kune Do instantly caught my attention. So many martial arts instructors are, to put it politely, hacks. The average store front "martial arts" studio seems to specialize in mediocre training geared primarily towards kids who will only be there a couple of years, and those who expect to be guaranteed a black belt in exchange for 3 years of lessons and a few thousand dollars;we refer to these as "McMartial Arts" studios. I had seen way too many of these, with "sensei's" claiming to be Grand Masters from distant exotic lands, so I have a tendency to view any self-proclaimed martial arts instructor with "open minded skepticism". While I've never been good enough to indulge in "dojo storming", I will politely wait to be impressed before assuming an instructor is good. TJ Miller blew that skepticism out of the water quickly -- and consistently. He's the real deal, in a very big way. Working out with TJ, I finally learned what Jeet Kune Do is really all about. You can start to glean it from Bruce Lee's writings if you're patient and persistent. But to really "get it", you have to "do it" with someone who's already there. My initial training with TJ was in small adult groups of 3 to 5 initially. His approach was excellent. We focused on basics to start, beginning simply with learning how to fall. As Alfred says to Bruce Wayne in Batman, "Why do we fall, sir? So we can learn to get up." We learned basic punches and kicks, as most people have no clue that a good punch is 80% body and 20% arm. We started stationary with heavy bags until we could actually fall, punch and kick effectively, though still very much beginners. Then we starting moving around, working with TJ and also pairing up with others, alternately holding practice mitts and pads for each other. Trying to throw a punch or kick at a moving target is a somewhat shocking revelation if you've never done it before, and a bit embarrassing when you first try. Now that we were moving, TJ started to really emphasize this, the various ranges that Jeet Kune Do focuses on - weapons, kicking, punching, close-in (knees, elbows, head), grappling and the idea of controlling distance, and controlling the encounter. This evolved into developing an understanding of keeping a distance until you're ready to engage, and knowing when to close and escalate. We worked with a single "attacker", and then with two and three attacker, learning once again how to control our position relative to them so we could selectively encounter one at a time, and use them against each other. As quickly as we digested his lessons, he started including more styles that are traditonally taught with JKD, such as Wing Chun, Kali/Escrima, Silat, Muai Thai, Savate, Dumog and Jujitsu. We spent quite a bit of time on trapping, and blending and transitioning from technique to technique, across styles. The emphasis was always on establishing our "tools" to the point where we could apply whatever was most effective in any given situation - much more important than rote forms. Of course, the ideal would be to practice enough so that the reaction and application of techniques would be instant, requiring no thought and conscious selection -- but that takes years to develop. At one point, I was training twice a week with TJ in the dojo, and had the luxury and privilege of having him come to my home once a week for private training. During these sessions, we focused primarily on the heavy bag - my form, speed, endurance, combinations - with TJ emphasizing the need for repetition and consistent effort. When the weather permitted, we'd work out on my driveway or in the backyard with the Kali sticks -- one of my favorite parts of practice. TJ's skills are, in a word, superb, both as a practitioner and a trainer. I've been incredibly impressed with his mastery of each of the styles from which he demonstrated and trained us in technique, and even more so in his ability to truly keep them as part of his "toolkit" from which to draw, instantly and seamlessly, as needed in a combat situation. I practiced with TJ for several years, as did my teenage son and daughter, and only stopped when he relocated out of state. I would start up again in a heartbeat if logistics permitted. Beyond being a world class Jeet Kune Do trainer, in both group and private settings, TJ is a philosopher perhaps in the tradition of the best practitioners like Bruce Lee and Morihei Ueshiba, something you learn gradually over years of practice with him. All in all, TJ is a unique and superb martial arts practitioner and trainer, and it's a rare privilege to learn from, practice with - and be able to call someone this special your friend.
I have been training with the school for 10 years now. The training I received proved practical and devastatingly effective when I deployed to Iraq in 2003 and 2009. I devote time and effort to learn techniques of the art, make adjustments from feedback from my instructors and further refine my form. In real world situation where there are no rules, no referee, no weight classes,and no protective gear, the training I received prepared me with a set of skills to defend myself effectively. Sifu McCoy displays his kung fu skills, both physically and mentally, to the highest degree of refinement, a reflection of his over 4 decades of training under (grand)masters. He passes on his knowledge through a well-trained staff with lots of personal attention, and a fully equipped training hall. Highly recommended!!!
