As true Martial Arts encompass more than simply "boxing forms" and pounding an individual (or group)
into the ground, it is our contention that art and
culture are a main point of the Martial Arts and not just physical combat. Therefore, we have
included a pure Arts department. Our first offereing involves the art of the
Japanese Netsuke. Please
enjoy as this area grows.
Classical Martial Arts
Allow us to also suggest a visit to
The Classical Martial Arts Resource. From their site: "Just what are the
koryu bujutsu? Authentic classical Japanese martial traditions are quite rare in the West,
and there's not a whole lot of reliable information in English. If you're curious, this
introduction will help you get started with articles and resources on the martial arts
of the Japanese samurai."
