Training at Our Wallingford CT Martial Arts School
At Fighting Edge Martial Arts Academy in Wallingford, CT we help people just like you get started in the martial arts.
We specialize in teaching self-defense to adults and children the practical martial art of Filipino Kun Tao in a friendly family-centered environment.
Whether you are looking for practical self-defense training, a new hobby, want to meet new people, or just want to get more fit, we can help.
But, are we the best martial arts school for you? Here are the top 8 characteristics that define the Fighting Edge Martial Arts Academy in Wallingford, Connecticut:
1. Age-Specific Training
While learning a martial art is great for kids, you should never have to train along side them or ever be taught by them. Kids train in their own specific classes with the curriculum tailored to their age and ability level. Adult students train together with a more comprehensive self-defense centered focus.
2. Personal Attention
We are a martial arts studio that limits how many students we teach. Why do we do this? Because we know you will learn faster and more thoroughly with smaller class sizes and we do not want you to ever feel like just another number in our classes. Our focus remains on teaching the art of self-defense through Filipino Kun Tao; not on focusing on recruiting new students. We focus on our students first, and only!
3. Practical and Efficient Curriculum
You’ll learn the martial arts system of Filipino Kun Tao. Our martial arts system emphasizes simple and direct movements making it a highly practical self defense system for any adult to learn. We work exclusive training drills so you can master the art and make it instinctive.
Learn simple defenses against:
■Punches, pushes and kicks
■Grabs and holds
■Joint locks and chokes
■Knives, guns, and sticks
■Being taken to the ground
4. Authentic Reputable Instructors
At Fighting Edge Martial Arts, you will never have to worry you’re learning from an unqualified black belt. Our chief instructors, Mr. Ron Sullivan, a 7th degree black belt and Mr. Alan Stekloff, a 6th degree black belt, have been training in martial arts for more than a combined 60 years.
Unfortunately, many martial arts schools do not regulate quality standards or testing requirements. In fact, many martial arts school owners pay to get their black belt quickly and open up a martial arts school without much training at all. Our instructors regularly train with other Filipino Kun Tao / Rossi Self-Defense System Instructors. Our instructors are always learning, growing, and teaching. Our Students can feel confident that our training history is legitimate and that our instructors have the credentials and experience to teach you correctly.
5. Self-Defense for Everyone
Are you wondering if this is something you can do? If you can throw a frisbee, hammer a nail, or saw a piece of wood, you can do this practical martial arts system! Unlike other martial arts that are very acrobatic, Filipino Kun Tao is designed around simple every day moves.
We will also teach you how to effectively defend yourself against much larger and stronger attacker so you can feel confident in any situation you might face.
6. No Long-Term Contracts
We do not require that you sign a long term contract at our martial arts school and offer month to month programs. We want our students to be comfortable with us, we do not want to lock you into a contract if we are not the right school for you.
7. No Hidden Costs
We don’t like hidden fees so we don't surprise you with them. All our costs are provided up front when we meet so you know about everything in advance.
Our goal is to make quality martial arts affordable for the entire family!
