Pandemic schedule: Karate classes are temporarily suspended. Free outdoor Tai Chi and Short Stick Art are held at 9 am Saturday mornings, weather permitting.
Silver Spring Martial Arts now offers a mixed self-defense training class that draws on principles from a variety of martial arts such as Systema, Aikido, and Escrima. In particular, we emphasize the ideas of breathing, structure, movement, and relaxation.
Through application of these principles, the students learn to improvise actions which are appropriate for their immediate situation, rather than memorizing and performing set techniques.
Our training will cover a variety of situations: single opponent, multiple attackers, weapons, grappling, fighting from the ground. The ideas may be applied to sport (competition) or combat (self-defense).
