Background: Our program was originally created by Guro Rick Faye in the early 1980s. Over the last 20+ years Guro Diana has enhanced and customized the initial material. In addition to creating a great self defense product, she built an instructor development program for the curriculum.

It's sources are the Filipino Martial Arts, the Jun Fan Martials, the Jeet Kune Do Concepts, the anatomy, science and study of the human body's response to threat to life stress as taught by Marcus Wynne as well her own research and exploration of the subject.

Tailored to your needs, the private lessons, workshops and seminars range from 60 minutes to 8 hours.
