Everything you see in the movies… the Jackie Chans, the Batmans, the Daredevils… this is what Guardian Art teaches you to be like. Guardian Art may be entertaining to watch, but it’s not a performing art. It is a specialty fighting art for a world beyond the ring- a world where things like trees, cars, and buildings exist. Real fighting requires moving within this world and so in Guardian Art, you will learn stand up and ground fighting as well as moving through obstacles like in parkour. And for us, it’s not even about being fancy or looking cool. We just take fighting more seriously than most martial art schools.
Life is funny. While toddlers are learning to move, most adults are forgetting how to. And then there are those adults who want to move, but are insecure about being out of place or feeling incapable. The types of movements most adults do is purely from a viewpoint of exercise and fitness, and that may tone your muscles, but do not really make them more functional beyond improving strength. When practicing Guardian Art, our adult members have fun learning skills and improving their coordination with fitness being a byproduct, and because of this, they actually become more fit physically and functionally when compared to their experiences going to the gym and other fitness programs. Staffed by professionals, we comprehend the proper way to handle each age group as well as consider an individual’s capability. Although we train parkour type movement, it is just a subset of Guardian Art. Guardian Art is a self-defense art, and so it embodies a self-defense culture instead of a youth culture. But indeed, when you start this training, your childhood inner ninja wakes up.
Guardian Art masters have been involved with creating certifications for other programs such as parkour, but those certifications do not meet Guardian Art standards. While one can become a certified parkour instructor with a 3-day workshop, acquiring NXGA certification requires nomination based on skill and maturity, as well as 3 months of hands on safety, positive energy, and specialized teaching training. But it doesn’t stop there. Since Guardian Art is an evolving art, certifications become outdated. All our instructors, even our most experienced, are continually being trained to improve their ability to teach. This attitude for always seeking improvement trickles from our instructors down to their students.
We take striking and grappling to a different dimension from MMA by fusing it with acrobatics and obstacle courses so you can fight in environments more complexed than a ring.
Learn to flip, spin, and move creatively. You'll be amazed at what you will learn about yourself.
Calling all aspiring Jedi or Ninjas, we wield the sword in a very sacred way…fighting and moving with it through obstacles.
Start by trying out to see if Guardian Art is the right fit. You’ll get to tour our facility and break a sweat learning to move like a Jedi. Proceeds from your registration will go towards protecting the environment. We want to begin your hero training by helping the world.
