In addition to our weekly Self Defense classes, we have exclusive "Women's Only" Self Defense workshops throughout the year. Here we teach the straight forward self defense techniques that can save your life, or even the life of a loved one! Each workshop consists of a warm-up stretch then effective balance drills, striking, grappling, escapes, weapon basics and ground defense all used to empower the individual. Self Defense is like insurance: It's better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it!

Weapons class promotes physical and mental development through the process of mastering single, double, long/ short range, edged and blunt weapons. We practice control and accuracy and use foam padded weapons when necessary for extra safety. Weapons class can be an excellent extension of techniques from any martial art style.

BULLY PrOOF

 Shotokan is the style of Karate at YMATC. Developed from various martial arts by Gichin Funakoshi (1868–1957) and his son Gigo (Yoshitaka) Funakoshi (1906–1945). There is no single "Shotokan school", although they all bear Funakoshi's influence.

As the most widely practiced style, Shotokan is considered a traditional and influential form of karate do.

Shotokan training is usually divided into three parts: kihon (basics), kata (forms or patterns of moves), and kumite (sparring). Techniques in kihon and kata are characterised by deep, long stances that provide stability, enable powerful movements, and strengthen the legs. Shotokan is regarded as a dynamic martial art as it develops anaerobic, powerful techniques as well as developing speed. Initially strength and power are demonstrated instead of slower, more flowing motions. Those who progress to brown and black belt level develop a much more fluid style that incorporates grappling, throwing and some standing joint locking techniques, which can be found even in basic kata. Kumite (fighting) techniques are practiced in the kihon and kata and developed from basic to advanced levels with an opponent.
