Over two decades of teaching, travel, training, and research has guided the Academy of Martial Arts to the forefront of self-defense education. Our system of “Kosen Bujutsu” is the result of an amalgamation of traditional disciplines, classical systems, and the contemporary sciences of kinesiology. It is the cumulative result of these independent parts working in harmony that enables us to offer you a program of exceptional merit. The name “Kosen Bujutsu” is in itself a union of two classical Japanese expressions. The first part “Kosen” represents the time-honored traditions of the classical Martial Arts schools. Commonly translated as old school education, “Kosen” promotes an understanding of the correct application of Martial Arts to everyday life. This is a skill that we take great pride in at the Academy of Martial Arts, as the majority of life’s conflicts are not of a physical nature.
The second part of this classical expression is “Bujutsu”. This is the physical application of technically proficient skills that allows one to focus their abilities to successfully defend what is truly important, those we love. The Academy of Martial Arts has taught over 20,000 students the difference between fighting and stopping an attacker through a balance of Karate, defensive tactics, Ju Jutsu, and Kobudo. The Academy of Martial Arts teaches traditional values with a modern understanding of technique working together to create a balanced system. “Kosen Bujutsu” is a system developed to maximize results, minimize waste, and get you in the best shape of your life. Truly this is a system that will equip you for life.
