At Cerezo's Martial Arts, the focus is on gaining self-discipline and building confidence, as well as learning self-defense. Self-discipline and confidence are the inner strengths which are nurtured and then mobilized to create a more healthy person in mind, body and in spirit and in turn enable them to defend themselves better.

  • blocks

  • hand strikes

  • kicks (consistent with Japanese and Okinawan open-hand systems)

Classes consist of jiu jitsu basics:

  • locks

Basic forms (katas) are taught as exercises used to practice fighting techniques. And basic one-step techniques (combination of blocks and strikes for self-defense.) are also taught to give the student a working knowledge of each technique taught in the class. Through martial arts training, sensei Abe strives to teach kids a better way to communicate, have respect, acceptance of people for who they are and willingness to learn new things while keeping an open mind.
