We hope to see you all there!!



Chinese Ground Fighting Clinic

Ground Fighting has many different methods, styles, and uses.  The most common are various forms of Judo, Jujitsu, MMA, and the occasionaly over zealous professional athlete who just wants his ball back.   

My Ball gimme gimme

At the Monk Wise Ground Fighting Clinic we will focus on the old ways of ground fighting.  Chinese martial arts is not worldly popular and/or known for it's ground fighting.  So it's easy to assume there is no ground fighting in the Chinese martial Arts.  This is very far from the truth.  

Throughout history the fighting arts that become mainstream are the ones that can be done safely; Wrestling, Boxing, Judo, Tae Kwon Do, Sanda, and MMA, to name a few, have all received spectator status with many global practitioners participating in organized events.  These spectator sports have rules, weight classes, etc. to keep the competition fair and as safe as possible.    Self-Defense is never fair, follows rules, or requires attackers to evenly match the  physical size of their vicitims.  The fighting arts therefor must cheat.  Cheat by using strategy, techniques that are not forgiving, weapons, environment, etc.  These situations are not favorable for spectator sports, the Romans may argue that point, as the participants would be greatly injured, maimed, or killed.  

At the Ground Fighting Clinic offered by Monk Wise we will cover the "cheat techniques" mentioned above.  Give someone smaller the information needed to thwart a larger attacker.  We will do it step by step in the appropriate atmosphere so those attending can learn the essence of Chinese ground fighting, in a controlled environment so the that real understanding and skill can take place.  We hope to see you there.

Cost is $50 for students and $75 for non students (family of students are $50).  

Hope you can join us!
