  • What is Self-Defense?
    • While there is potential for both of the following scenarios to happen, which is more likely?
      • Over work yourself, over stress yourself, not get adequate sleep, become seriously ill, limit your potential by negative thinking, lose your temper, over react…
      • Be attacked by one or more criminals.
    • At some time in your life, you may have to defend yourself from a physical attack by others.
    • However, it is a guarantee that you will need to defend yourself from your own abuses, limiting thoughts, and poor choices.
    • KSSR can help you prepare for both scenarios

    • In this sub-art students will study and gain an understanding of movement and posturing.
    • One way in which this is accomplished is through the study of the octagon drill.

      • Efficiency of movement

    • Folding Arts are symbolized by empty hands. The intent here is to control the opponent through joint locks and off-balancing. These arts also represent internal striking.
    • War Arts are symbolized by a covered fist reminding the practitioner to regulate their martial ability with propriety. These arts also represent muscular striking.
  • The Martial Arts of KSSR
    • Empty handed kata (pre-arranged pattern of movements) include authentic KSSR forms and forms sourced from other arts.
    • After the basic pattern is learned, the student is taught various kata methodologies to expand his/her knowledge of the form.
