Ultimate Body

Martial arts training helps develop the "Ultimate" body - the perfect balance of size, strength, speed, power, balance, coordination, flexibility and endurance, regardless of age.

Ultimate Mind

Self defense training is physically demanding. Our programs pushes people past what they think is possible. As the body grows stronger, so does the mind.

Ultimate Spirit

With a strong mind and strong body comes an indomitable spirit. When you know who you are and what you are capable of doing - there is nothing you can't do when you put your mind to it.

What do you do on a beautiful day? Practice your Two Man Bo Kata in the park, of course!

Saturday was a remarkable day and a fitting conclusion to the “Weapons of Budo” Seminar Series. Students and University Cadets alike kicked their shoes off at Marina Park in preparation for “some serious weapons training” with Grandmaster Taylor and Shihan Ley.

Students of all rank levels enjoyed learning the basics of blocking and striking with a Bo staff and then used their new skill to work through the Two Man Bo Form. At the end of the event they left confident in their newly acquired skill and were excited to take it back to the dojo.

Watch for future posts announcing Shihan Frank Ley performing the Chinese Seven Star Bo at the next KLA event!
