Adults Martial Arts Training

Our Self-Defense Goal at GET REAL is to become Functional in all Ranges, With or Without Weapons, Against One or More, Unarmed or Armed Resisting Opponents, in a Variety of Environments.

Our goal at GET REAL is not to take exceptional athletes and turn them into to champions, but to help "normal" people who want to develop functional street self-defense skills. To accomplish this you have to train in a realistic manner.

You must practice the concept of ALIVENESS TRAINING or training against a Fully Resisting Opponent. Knowing the technique is not enough. The true art of self-defense lies in your ability to overcome a fully resisting attacker, not just memorizing a list of deadly techniques. Students will actually practice fighting in every training session. The student may hit pads, hit a heavy bag or work on technique, but the majority of training time is spent in sparring. This gives you the timing and sensitivity necessary to apply fight ending techniques against a resisting opponent.

We have always cross trained with MMA style training methods, but with the street environment as our first priority. This can be done by anyone of any level of physicality. We adjust the intensity of our training to suit the individual's current physical condition and goals.

P.S. We do not Punch and Kick Air. We Do Not Do Forms. If you have Aspirations to Compete in Sport MMA, Tournament Submission Wrestling or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu we stand with you and encourage you all the way. You will be responsible for making the transition from our "No Rules" Training to Sport & Tournament Rules.


JEET KUNE DO - AMERICAN SELF-DEFENSE CREATED BY BRUCE LEE

Jeet Kune Do "the way of the intercepting fist" is not a system or style as defined in the traditional sense, but rather a process which can help you, the individual, to the most perfect form of expression that is suited to a particular moment. The essence of JKD is the ability to "fit in" with all types of opponents and express oneself without any restrictions in combat. JKD is based on a Philosophy of Simplicity, Directness, Effectiveness and Freedom. Bruce searched for the universal truths in every martial art style. Lee's creation relies on strong side offensive action and extreme speed to succeed, it does not emphasize defense. Some of the arts we will explore include Western Boxing, Bruce Lee's Kickboxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing, French Savate', Wing Chun, Filipino Kali/Escrima, Submission Wrestling and Jeet Kune Do. Come in today for your Free Trial Lesson and explore the genius of Bruce Lee. For men & women ages 15 & up.

BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU - CREATED BY HELIO GRACIE

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu know as "the gentle art" was created by Helio Gracie. BJJ focuses on the use of leverage in the most efficient way possible to control and overcome opponents of greater size, strength and aggression. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is largely a grappling and groundfighting art used for self-defense, sport grappling (gi & no gi) and mixed martial arts competition. The art is different than most in that, it can be trained against a fully resisting opponent, allowing for an undisputed conclusion by submission. A simple tap by the losing party ends the match without injury. Come in today and explore the genius of Helio Gracie. For men and women ages 15 & up, A uniform is required.

Testimonials

Tom, I just want to thank you again for the outstanding training and hospitality you and all your coaches and students showed us at Get Real. From the moment I walked through the door I felt like I had walked into the home of a friend. Your wonderful spirit showed from the first time you greeted us, thanking us for coming. However, it is us, the students who should be forever grateful to you for sharing your extensive knowledge and working so hard to put it into a format that can be easily understood.
