The Modern Katana Academy curriculum is based on super-conditioning training to increase power, flexibility, endurance especially with your back, shoulders, arms, wrists, and hands.
This creates lightning fast, flexible, and powerful strikes, with advanced strike-counter-strike training.
MKA lessons includes in-depth demonstrations, explanations, and handouts to keep in a personal, training binder.
If you are expecting to wear a Gi, stand in line, jump up and down, punch in the air, pay for a new colored belt test…this is the wrong school.
This is an ultra-elite, reality-based school on entering into combat [Tatakau]. If you do not consistently train in counter-weapon striking, how will you ever be prepared?
Self-defense is not a fist fight, knife fight…or any other type of fight. It is combat but this reality is hard to face so it is easy to train at a safe school where the challenge of a weapon wielding attacker is left only to the imagination.
Counter-strike drill training is at the core of the Modern Katana Academy.
With this in mind, 100% mindfulness, maturity and attention are mandatory to train in the school.
Training from the very beginning with a weapon in hand will help the student to instinctively recognize that anything they can pick-up can effectively become a highly utilized tool in a self-defense situation. Utilizing a weapon in a life-or-death situation can give you an exponential advantage.
Six Week Curriculum – [$175.00 includes MKA Shinai & Bag]
The Student will be taught master level training concepts as a perfect foundational way to form the infrastructure before you may be invited to enter the even more complex future lessons.
Specific Wazas [concepts, ideas, techniques…] are directly applicable to real combat strategies and tactics if the correct instructor shows the way. Therefore, it is a part of the overall MKA curriculum.
The Student will be introduced to Sword Maneuvers utilizing the MKA Shinai [Bamboo Sword] and applicable to any weapon.
Learning timing, distance, angles, super conditioning, and a rapid neural response is the foundation of self-defense, combat skills which The MKA offers. Removing lag time, rigidity and telegraphing is at the core of the MKA. In this way, the odds can be diminished in a real-world situation.
You must be prepared to listen to explanations of weapon and combat knowledge as well as hands-on lessons.
