Our coed workout program is designed to transform the body into an effective personal self-Allen Academy – Adult Program – Self-Defensedefense tool. Classes begin with a workout that includes aerobic conditioning, stretching, strengthening, yoga, and chi kung exercises. This is perfect for beginning students who need to get back into shape and is also an excellent way to maintain fitness levels for the more experienced students. This workout is designed to help students develop and enhance their speed, reflex, flexibility, agility, coordination, strength, grace, balance, and power. Awareness, confidence, and self-control are by-products of this type of training and are essential elements of the adult program. Bringing together the mind and the body forms a interdependent relationship, which proves exponentially more powerful than the sum of its components.
Students who study the Shinsho system are exposed to a conceptual system of effortless self-defense. Students learn how to defend against every conceivable danger including opponents with:
Allen Academy – Adult Program – Self-Defense
And opponents that use:
- Hair pulls
- Arm locks
- Bear hugs
- Even multiple attackers
If confronted, our students are trained to neutralize conflicts in two seconds. Our defense programs do not concentrate on a narrow field of strikes or techniques, but concepts that lead us to adapt, overcome, and even when possible, to harmonize with our adversaries. Our training curriculum is individualized and inexhaustible.
Our adult SELF-DEFENSE program is the cornerstone of our school. Classes are offered six days a week and include a variety of experience and mixed ranks. Adults share and learn from each other as they train with dignity and respect. It is a time for students and instructors to put aside their daily distractions and focus on their self-development. Our tranquil classes allow students to explore their training in safety and with self-respect. Class discussions are held nightly and questions are encouraged.
