Martial Arts at MUV Integrated Physical Culture
About this class
Student Level: 6 We have organized martial arts training based on mechanical and reaction time progressions. This is designed to serve as a foundation for students to safely and efficiently explore and adapt to any martial arts training style; traditional, eclectic, competitive (MMA, BJJ, HEMA, Point Sparring, etc.), defensive tactics. Martial Arts Levels 1-2 Weapons based systems are first introduced to teach basic angles of attack and footwork. Students will learn how to create precise angles offensively and defensively. They will progressively improve reaction time and distance management. Initially, Kali (FMA) based sword, knife and improvised weapon techniques are taught. Fencing inspired drills will then be introduced. Martial Arts Levels 3-4 Empty hand systems are translated from the weapon systems. Upper body strikes are initially taught using parts of the limbs that don't include the knuckles as a striking surface. Joint locks, take downs and immobilization (traps) are taught to complete a defensive process that can be translated into defensive tactics. Thereafter, western boxing style movement and punches will be introduced using the knuckles as the striking surface
