Hapkido was designed as a way to defend against and overcome an attacker in many forms of martial combat. Hapkido believes in training all the ranges and practices kicking, striking, punching, joint-locks, throws, and grappling, making it one of the original mixed martial arts. Hapkido gives the student a solid base in different forms of defense, and roots the strategy of that defense in the principles of water, circle, and economy of motion. This gives the student a solid framework on which to develop their skill. It is designed to allow a martial artist to quickly subdue an attacker. Hapkido emphasizes precision, timing, and proper technique over brute strength. The art’s primary emphasis is on practical self-defense.

Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do
Jeet Kune Do is a concept/philosophy of martial arts heavily influenced by the personal philosophy and experiences of martial artist Bruce Lee. Lee, who founded the JKD, referred to it as "non-classical", suggesting that it is a formless form of Chinese Kung Fu. Unlike more traditional martial arts, Jeet Kune Do is not fixed or patterned and is a philosophy with guiding ideas that create better martial artists. Jeet Kune Do believes in minimal effort and maximum effect. Jun Fan Gung Fu was Bruce Lee’s (Jun Fan Lee) personal system of Gung Fu. This was the system Bruce taught at his school in Seattle, Washington and the basis of the Jeet Kune Do Concepts.

Filipino Martial Arts
Filipino martial arts class is a collection of different Filipino systems including Kali, Escrima and Arnis. The need for self-preservation was the beginning of these systems. Throughout the ages, invaders and local conflict imposed a need for combat in the islands making up the Philippines. The Filipino people developed battle skills as a direct result of their ever-changing circumstances. They learned often out of the necessity in combative situations. Combining empty hand, bladed and impact weaponry, we will explore the systems and learn to preserve life.

Small Circle Japanese Jujitsu
Small Circle Jujitsu™ is based on classical jujitsu and was founded by Professor Wally Jay. The small circle theory is a proven scientific method and has been accepted by the martial arts world as an acclaimed and accredited system. Professor Wally Jay took traditional jujitsu techniques and refined them to be more efficient and effective. The system he developed focuses on techniques to control an attacker by taking advantage of their weaknesses and mistakes - not fighting their strengths. Small Circle Jujitsu™ uses traditional jujitsu techniques along with pressure points to effectively control an attacker. The result is maximum results through minimum effort. Small Circle Jujitsu™ is constantly evolving under the leadership of Professor Jay's son, Leon Jay, with new and innovative techniques.

Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu
The Bujinkan is an organization that brings together nine traditional Japanese schools, called Ryu. Collectively these styles brought together by the organization are called Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu. The nine traditional schools that the Bujinkan is made of of are nine Ryu that Masaaki Hatsumi is individually the Soke, grandmaster, of and that he inherited from our previous Soke, Toshitsugu Takamatsu. Most of these Ryu are historically related and are not just random pickings of arts from around Japan. Many of these schools are very old, some, like the Gyokko Ryu, go back over 800 years to the Heian period of Japan as martial arts were moving from the continent into Japan. These schools all go back to legitimate traditions of the samurai and the ninja, and for some are the last living traditions of their kind. At Shoshin Bujinkan, train in old traditions that are incredibly applicable today. They teach us sound means of training and real, tested defense techniques, about philosophy and systems of thought that can lead us to be better people, and foremost about ourselves, our potential, and who we can become.
We also have good time with a great group of people while doing it all. We seek to create a community of people focussed on learning and training in traditional Japanese martial arts together. We believe that training in the martial arts is about more than just learning to defend oneself. It is about deep human concerns of existential importance. We seek to create a program that helps people address these concerns while at the same helping people gain confidence and safety by learning self-defense techniques. Through this program, we hope group participants will learn about traditional arts and techniques, be able to defend themselves in real situations, engage in personal development, whatever that means to them, and create meaningful community while giving back to the greater community we are a part of.

Modern Arnis is the system of Filipino martial arts founded by Remy Presas as a self-defense system. His goal was to have an injury-free training method as well as an effective self-defense system in order to preserve the older Arnis systems of Filipino martial arts. Arnis deals with long to close quarter fighting with stick, blade and empty hand.
