X-TREME MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES
Ms. Laurie Longfellow -Program Director
XMA (Xtreme Martial Arts) is the transition of martial arts from the traditional towards the contemporary. Having evolved from an ancient form of self-defense, the modern martial arts movement is now more sport and entertainment, while still remaining true to the time-honored principles of Honor, Discipline, Integrity and Respect. XMA is a fusion of all martial arts styles melded together with performance arts, high-flying acrobatic maneuvers and the hottest Hong Kong, chop-saki style action! However, XMA cannot exist without, and is only an extension of traditional martial arts. It is designed to enhance the traditional with more speed, power, presentation and performance value. At the basic levels, Xtreme Martial Arts is used as a tool to develop Life and Leadership Skills. At the high end, students can reach elite levels and compete on the international stage and go head to head with Hollywood’s best!
Classes are held twice a month on Saturday mornings. Skills taught and mastered include increased speed, sharpening of techniques, fancy kicks, learn how to create and perform fast paced, musical forms, XMA weapons include nunchucks, bo, kamas, sword, devil sticks, and diablos.
