Learn how to move from boxing to baton to knife to the ground as the situation dictates. All part of my “fight skills”…

Marty Martin Karate Fight Skills builds your confidence, character and ability using the fundamentals of boxing, stick fighting, knife training, and jiu jitsu combined with the extensive practical use of the rules and principles listed below.  Your goal is to integrate this training into your routines until your responses are spontaneous and you cannot get them wrong. The ever-continuing refinement of your fight skills will develop your awareness, arousal control and mental toughness honed and at the ready.

The mental aspects are just as if not more important than the physical. Continued fight skills training prepares your mind to control your emotions in combat – a perishable skill that needs consistent refinement.
