At ACS we offer training in three different martial arts:

  • Chinese Kenpo Jiu-Jitsu
  • Tai Qi / Qi Gong (Tai Chi / Chi Gong)
  • Goju-Shorei Weapons System

ACS Kenpo Jiu-Jitsu

Kenpo Jiu-Jitsu
Kenpo Jiu-Jitsu is a street practical style of self-defense that is continuously evolving. By focusing on using your body type to your advantage, Kenpo is one of the few art forms that can be truly tailored to the student. Kenpo incorporates elements of boxing, judo, jiu-jitsu, kung-fu, karate and weaponry in an eclectic style that allows you to focus on the areas that your body feels most comfortable.
Elements of Kenpo include techniques that are:
  • 50% hand and elbow strikes
  • 30% joint locks, flips, throws and submissions.
  • 20% kicks (emphasizing practical kicks to lower targets)
If you are looking for an art that incorporates many elements of the martial arts (stand-up and ground) then Kenpo is definitely the art for you!

Tai Qi Ch'uan / Qi Gong

Internal Arts
The internal arts program consists of Tai Chi Ch'uan, Hsing-I Ch'uan and various Qi Gong sets. We teach the Yang family style of Tai Qi Ch'uan and our classes include Chi Sao drills as well as the self-defense applications of the art. We also work with the Eagle Style of Hsing-I Ch'uan to assist people in creating a bridge between external movements and internal movements.

Many people primarily focus only on the relaxation and healing aspects of these martial arts. At ACS, we empower our students by helping them to understand the applications and self-defense aspects of these arts. Designed to improve strength, flexibility and overall health, the internal arts program is great for students of all ages. Reducing stress in their lives, boosting their autoimmune system and increasing their feeling of wellness are a few of the benefits that our students receive.

Weapons – Goju Shorei Systems

Our weapons programs include the Goju Shorei Weapons System, stick fighting as well as knife/counter knife classes. The Goju Shorei Weapons System is a practical martial arts system that utilizes the knife, cane and war fan to build the fundamentals needed to use any tool as a weapon. In addition; the cane, knife and war fan are weapons that one could carry with them almost anywhere.
