Jeff and I have trained together in traditional Goju Ryu karate since we were kids. His karate training along with military experience, make him a well rounded instructor offering traditional martial arts and practical applications.

I highly recommend this martial arts school. My son has only been a student here for a couple of months and his confidence is already improving. The instructors are great and very patient. This program is also much more affordable than others like it.

If you want to train like a super-saiyan, go here. I love the transformation of Improved self esteem, confidence and passion for life that I see in the students. Anshin Kai is meant to breathe life into your goals and help you excel in various ways. This dojo is like one big family and the camaraderie is warm and welcoming. Once you get started, you'll be hooked.

I LOVE the fitness and fighting class! It gets me going in the morning even before the kids wake up. I get a kick butt workout. I get some me time. And I have learned a lot about fitness and self defense. The class is appropriate for all ability levels. I've gotten much stronger since I started about 2 months ago. Best workout class ever!

My husband and I couldn't ask for a better place to take our son. He's a little shy when it comes to new things, but he warmed up really well to the experience and the staff. Sensei Jeff is very fun and patient with all the student, yet demands respect and attention when needed to get the job done. We are very excited to continue this journey with Anshin Kai Martial Arts for a very long time. Thanks!

The Shopper’s Self Defense Guide

The Shopper’s Self Defense Guide

Holiday shopping can be a thrill. In a good way and even in a bad way. Adding a little self defense mentality can go a long way.

Self Awareness
You have society on your side. Potential criminals (for the most part) won’t just obnoxiously run up to you in front of a crowd and take your things.
These criminals are looking for an opportune situation. As long as you are aware of your surroundings, you can prevent yourself from ever falling into one of these situations.
Your own body is a part of your surroundings. It would be a foolish decision to count cash in public. This is something you should be aware of, and instead count your cash privately.

The ultimate holiday shopping self defense tip is to simply be aware. Be aware of where a potential pick pocket is, and what a potential pick pocket is looking for.
The Pick Pocket
Pickpockets thrive on holiday shopping. There are crowds of people, loaded with cash and jewelry who know nothing about practical self defense.
Get inside the mind of the pick pocket. They are looking for crowds. Pay attention when in a crowd. Don’t forget where all your belongings are.
Avoid dark areas. Keep your wallet in your front pockets. Don’t let your bag or purse hang behind you. Everything valuable should be positioned up front where your eyes and hands can follow them at all time.
Wear simple, comfortable, and non-flowing clothing. The biggest aspect of holiday shopping self defense is being prepared. Pay attention and stay safe.

Dealing With Your Car
Another holiday shopping hotspot for thieves is your vehicle.
Pay attention to where you parked. Don’t park in a dark corner. Park where it’s bright. Even if this means you have to park further away, putting yourself in a favorable position is the centerpiece of holiday shopping self defense.

Pay attention when you finish shopping. The walk back to you car is the most dangerous. The criminals know that you are finished with all of your holiday gifts and exhausted. Have your keys ready in hand, and don’t waste any time.
Pay attention to your surroundings, get to your car, and get out. If you are worried about your situation, then don’t be scared to ask a security guard to escort you.
