Self Defense/martial arts

The Zanshin Martial Arts Program aims to provide students with a comprehensive self-defense curriculum. With strong roots in the traditional martial arts of Japan, the Zanshin Dojo curriculum features striking, joint locks, takedowns, ground scenarios, and weapons defense. All instructors have extensively cross-trained in the four martial arts of Japan: Ju Jitsu, Judo, Aikido, and Karate with additional self-defense study incorporating techniques from boxing, kickboxing, and wrestling. Students will have the opportunity to practice and drill techniques cooperatively with coaching and feedback from instructors. They will also experience the application of these techniques in a more “live” or application format with active resistance from their peers. As students learn, develop, and refine their technical abilities over time, their confidence will grow alongside their fitness and skill set.
