We are Vancouver and Portland's best school for traditional Internal Martial Arts. We teach ancient styles that are excellent for self defense and health building in a family style atmosphere which means each student gets more 1 on 1 time with our internationally trained teachers!
I love sharing the arts I am passionate about and seeing how fast people grow and develop when they really apply what we teach!
Jesse is a vert dedicated instructor with skills to match. Anyone lucky enough to learn from him will be better for it!
Jesse Conley is a phenomenal teacher and martial artist. Patient, good natured, unyielding and quite formidable; Jesse provides an excellent class atmosphere that while fun is quite challenging and yields remarkable results. One of the few teachers of internal martial arts that really gets results, and even fewer who are qualified to teach this particularly rare art.
I first sit down with them and find out their past experience and their goals, also finding out about any injuries I need to be aware of. Then we train together during class, each new student getting a ton a private attention during the class to help them get their feet under them and keep up with the class.
I've trained all over the world doing these arts and have learned many different aspects of it, each one being helpful to some people, no matter their goals.
We charge $80 per month for all the lessons you can attend and open mat access as well! We don't believe in contracts or forcing people to attend only certain classes so the whole school is open to help each student reach their goal!
I started teaching after I moved back from the Wudang Temple in 2005. I realized how special the arts I learned are and how much they could help the people in my community!
All different backgrounds and ages.
We held a women's self defense class that was really successful and we had a great time!
ALWAYS check the teacher's background and story. Research their art online and find out if the teacher is truly certified and finished his training.
I would suggest not thinking about the style itself but finding out what specific goals you have and asking the teacher how their art can help you achieve them!
