5-Element Martial Arts

5-Element Martial Arts



I teach the real meaning of martial arts. I do not focus on sport, rather, I teach practical knowledge for street self protection or personal security.

I teach an extensive knowledge of Acupuncture principles or Pressure Points. I work with seasoned martial artists to take them to higher levels of skill, but I also work with beginners.

    Frequently asked questions

    I communicate with new students to find out previous training, of any, and work to find their strengths and weaknesses.  I start by teaching the basics of how to use pressure points.  Training progresses by learning methods of drilling on learned muscle memory.

    I have nearly 55 years of training under some of the most famous teachers in the world.

    I only advertise my private lessons.  One hour costs $100, 5 one hour lessons costs $75 per hour and 10 one hour lessons cost $50 per hour.

    I have group classes at my dojo that are comparable to other local schools in the greater Indianapolis area.

    I started running my own classes because other schools were too generic.  I started teaching at a student club at Indiana State University in 1973.

    I have taught students from 4 years old to mature government agents.

    I was awarded Coins of Excellence by the Joint Chiefs of Staff for teaching my student who trained their security team.

    Find out where they learned their art and ask technical questions about Acupuncture.

    They should find out if any of the training requires strength or athletic ability.  If it does, it is probably a "Sport" system.  Sport has rules, but real life doesn't.
