Life skills such as manners, sharing, being patient, respecting others, and learning to control our bodies are discussed. All instruction at this level centers around the FIMA theme of “Listen and Learn” which develops and enhances your child’s ability to listen to and follow directions.

Students in this program have achieved the rank of yellow belt and above. Throughout this program, students learn basic and advanced forms, kicking and punching combinations, and self defense. At the blue belt level judo and grappling is introduced. Once the student has reached the proper maturity level, usually green belt, Jui-Jitsu is introduced. Emphasis at this program level is on the FIMA theme “Triad of Learning.” This focuses on the mental, life, and physical skills that help our young students succeed as they mature.

The FIMA Young Adult Program is built upon our Future Black Belt Program. Students are introduced and taught the fundamentals of our tactical mixed martial arts system “Heiho Shin Do.” Because of their age and maturity level, our young adults are able to learn faster and proceed quicker. Once basic skills are mastered, young adults are taught kickboxing techniques, grappling, Judo, Jui-Jitsu, and weapon defenses. Emphasis at this level is placed on the FIMA “Performance Formula” and how the daily choices we make dictate the direction of our life. Classes for this program are held on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm, and Tuesday thru Thursday from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Through skills developed from the tactical system of HeihoShinDo Jiu-Jitsu & Kali/Silat, the FIMA Adult Program focuses on teaching realistic self defense, focusing on personal and family protection. Nothing taught within this program is geared towards competition.
Once techniques and movement are developed, this combined tactical system provides you with a highly dynamic and extremely effective method of personal protection and self defense.
A direct result of this program is self-improvement by enhancing one's overall physical conditioning, self-empowerment, and survival mind set. Students will experience a dramatic difference in how they look and feel through their training at FIMA. Adult classes are offered 2X per week.
