THE BOURDON FAMILY IS MOVING!

Sign up for your last chance to train with Master Beau

This summer is Master Beau’s last summer running Ninja Camps and teaching Kung Fu classes. 

Summer classes will be run in sessions and will offer a different theme for each session. 

Students can sign up for a session at a time to save money or can pay-as-you-go and drop in when available. 

Kung Fu Class Summer Sessions:

KUNG FU TECHNIQUES AND APPLICATIONS  

Pulled from more complex Old Temple Forms, these short series of movements are usually defensive in nature and form the core of our Kung Fu training. 

When applied correctly these short series of movements are remarkably effective in Self-Defense and define the Way of the Peaceful Mind as a ‘Trapping Style’.  
We will study several techniques in detailed practice during each class and learn how to apply them with  partners.  Students will also be encouraged during this time to discover their favorite or Pocket Techniques, and to practice them to the point that they become automatic.  
Experienced students can get all their moves dusted off, and deepen their understanding of them by sharing their knowledge with our beginners.

GRAPPLING, ESCAPES & DISARMS

In this week students will get up close and personal with the wide variety of close combat techniques that our style teaches.  This will include escapes, reversals, throws, takedowns, ground fighting and gun/knife defense and disarms.  Of course we will also be working a lot on how to fall without injury and getting back up efficiently. 

TAI CHI WEEK #1
It’s time to dig deeper into the art that is called the Grand Ultimate Fist (Tai Chi Chuan).  Students will practice many exercises together but will also receive lots of personal attention, because we all progress through at our own pace.  Students will also get the opportunity to sharpen their swordsmanship skills through study of the Tai Chi Longsword Form, and even a bit of light fencing.   We will learn to apply the movements of the Yang Style Long Form and practice plenty of them during Push Hands with our partners.
TAI CHI WEEK 2 

Because there’s just too much Tai Chi to cram it all into one week.  Students will have the opportunity to “wrap up” forms that they’ve been studying, as well as studying applications of the movements in the forms.   We will also spend more time on Chi Gung and meditation exercises, because we should focus as much on internal training as we do on external. 

SELF DEFENSE WEEK

In this week we will focus on real world self defense.  When faced with a dangerous situation our Kung Fu should be swift, precise and almost automatic.  We will learn simple self defense principles, rather than long chains of movements that can be hard to remember.   We’ll study what to do if we’re on the ground, and how to get back up safely.  Students will learn about simple yet effective self defense tools, and how to use them correctly.  We will also study a variety of weapon defenses and disarming maneuvers.  

KUNG FU FORMS AND EXPRESSION 

This is it folks, our final week will be devoted to the classical forms of our Kung Fu system.  Students will receive a lot of personal coaching to either learn new forms, or to put a nice polish on their old ones.  We’ll dig deep into the application of the movements of the forms and work on them with partners.   Students will learn how to express themselves through their Kung Fu and make it their own.  This is where we find the true heart of the art. 

Kung Fu Classes are offered Outdoors in our Training Yard during pleasant weather!

Kung Fu Classes

At RMKF we teach both youth and adults, and we strive to create a school where everyone can reach their fullest potential through personal growth in a safe and fun environment.

Our students train both traditional techniques and forms alongside practical and powerful self-defense through our Way of the Peaceful Mind style. 

Classes at RMKF are designed to be fun and immersive. We give particular emphasis to promoting an environment where every student, both young and old, can learn and grow at their own pace. We use our training as a means to bring out the best in ourselves and each other.

Students advance in belt rank as they are ready, and we train in practical self-defense through HapKiDo, instead of sparring and point-based competing. 

Hap Ki Do is the Korean art of joint manipulation, used in all of RMKF’s throws and takedowns. It is designed to use your opponent’s own energy against them, by using the other person’s body for leverage on holds, locks, takedowns, and throws.

The Way of the Peaceful Mind system teaches these techniques for self-defense situations, eliminating the need for bulky muscle mass and strength to defend yourself.

The smallest child can take down the largest man when properly using his own body against himself.
