The MKG Phase Program is our signature curriculum. It is a blend of the arts we teach. We have found this to be the most successful program for developing students. Students will train in multiple arts and fighting ranges.
Jun Fan trapping and boxing
Muay Thai kickboxing
Phase classes will cover these great arts within a safe and fun environment.
Kali is the term we use to refer to all the Filipino Martial Arts (FMA). The word itself translates as the study of body motion. Other terms used to describe the FMA are Escrima or Arnis. This art is a weapon based system where you will train double stick, single stick, dagger, double dagger, stick & dagger, bandana and staff. MKG's Kali program is also integral to our Panantukan and Phase Program. Through this art the student will learn: coordination, balance, self defense, fighting range, footwork, and rhythm.
MKG's kickboxing program is Thai Boxing: The Art of 8 Limbs. Thai boxers learn to strike their opponent with kicks, knees, punches and elbows. Known for its powerful offense and tight defense, Thai Boxers are know as “Kings of the Ring.” Students of this art can expect to increase their striking ability, endurance & conditioning!
Muay Thai is also found within our Phase Program classes.
Panantukan or Filipino Boxing, aka 'Dirty Boxing', is the empty hand section of our Kali program. Panantukan uses all possible portions of the hand and fist as well as the elbows, shoulders, hips, knees and feet for striking. This method is traditionally used as a back up system for the weaponry. The movement and coordination of this empty hand system is developed in the weaponry section. "Weaponry trains the empty hands." Skills developed in this class can be applied in the ring or for self defense.
Bruce Lee and Dan Inosanto researched 26 arts to create the curriculum for Jun Fan. The main tenets of this art are: economy of motion and the integration of arts specializing in the ranges of fighting. Kickboxing, boxing, trapping (sensitivity and energy drills), locks, throws, sweeps, and grappling (standing and ground), make up the fighting range categories for this curriculum.
Our classes (Jun Fan/JKD and Phases 1, 2, and 3) set out to expose the student to the training exercises and drills that will enable them to understand an opponent’s energy. Joint manipulations, traps, sweeps, strikes and an awareness of each range are the elements that favor the trained JKD practitioner. The progression of skills in a fun and safe environment are hallmarks of the Minnesota Kali Group’s Jun Fan / Jeet Kune Do program.
Combat Submission Wrestling is a mixture of multiple arts covering stand up, take down, and grappling. We get this art from World Light-Heavyweight Shootwrestling champion, Erik Paulson. Coach Erik has blended Shooto (Shoot Wrestling), Muay Thai, Boxing, Savate, Sambo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Freestyle and Catch as Catch Can Wrestling. This curriculum can be trained by any level of student.
