Our Vancouver martial arts classes will help you build endurance, strength, flexibility, speed, coordination and balance, while reducing your overall stress levels. Vancouver Martial arts training also enables you to learn self defense and although the various styles have unique facets, a common characteristic of all martial arts is the system of fighting techniques. Martial arts styles may focus on a specific area or combination of areas, but the various martial arts techniques include strikes, grappling or weapons training. In some martial arts such as kickboxing, students train for sports competitions.
In our Vancouver martial arts training, testing is important to determine levels of skill in specific areas. Within the individual martial art systems, you will be periodically tested and graded by your own teacher in order to advance to a higher level of recognized achievement. These levels in martial arts are recognized by various belt colors or titles. Testing varies from system to system, but at our Vancouver martial arts training, we include sparring.
Sparring is commonly used in martial art exhibitions and tournaments. Rules for sparring vary between marital arts but can generally be classified into light-contact, medium-contact and full-contact. Although the precise form varies, sparring in martial arts is relatively free-form fighting, with enough rules, customs, or agreements to make injuries unlikely. Stand-up martial arts styles utilize punching, kicking and blocking as the main focus of their art. A student learns various moves, footwork and combinations, which vary in appearance and application depending on the martial arts style.
Few types of martial arts, such as kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and grappling are available at our Vancouver martial arts classes. If youre interested, contact us by filling out our form for martial arts classes in kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and grappling.
