As was pointed out in the movie “Rocky”, there is a difference between “a great fighter” and “one who fights great”… The “great fighter” is highly trained, skilled and conditioned and possesses the poise and polish of an experienced professional whereas “One who fights great” has a few raw tools and a tenacious will to win that carries them to victory. Our AFFKbJ Martial Arts program is where we build “Great Fighters” with hundreds of hours of dedicated training. Our RIPSTRAKE Program however, is designed to VERY QUICKLY give our students the physical tools they can use to ensure their safety. These methods are easy to remember, simple, direct and very effective. Very importantly, however, the RIPSTRAKE Programs are simply unsurpassed at first teaching, emphasizing and showing you how to develop the mental, emotional and psychological skills and appropriate mindset to avoid, defuse and/or survive and escape any number of self-protection/self-defense situations.
