Self-Defense & Martial Arts Classes

Capoeira

This class teaches the fundamentals of capoeira, with a focus on the movement side. You will learn how to do basic kicks, acrobatic tricks such as cartwheels, handstands, macacos, etc.) and floor movements. Each class will start with a simple warm up before going into some capoeira techniques, then finish with a “roda” (meaning circle), where we learn how to play capoeira with one another.

Krav Maga

As a reality-oriented self-defense system, the Israeli Krav Maga (“contact combat” in Hebrew) offers pragmatic solutions for all conceivable attack and threat situations by one or more unarmed or armed perpetrators, not only to defend oneself but also third parties. The system is reflex-based, with adaptable and effective techniques. Through continuous repetition of techniques, practical exercises, sparring and situational training in realistic environments, the skills learned are deepened and automated so that they can be called up quickly, even in stressful situations. Regardless of age, gender or physical ability, Krav Maga can be learned very quickly compared to other systems and does not require any special previous knowledge.

Please book classes directly with the instructor!

Kung Fu

Traditional kung fu is a self-defense practice that develops physical conditioning, discipline, and balance. Jorge comes from a traditional Chinese martial arts school of the Tan Lang Quan (Mantis fist) kung fu lineage that follows the teachings of the Chinese master Sun Deyao. We demonstrate to students that martial arts serve as a way to achieve a better quality of life. Our mission is the improvement of lifestyle, health, wellness, and balance within an inclusive environment that respects the developmental stages of each individual. During training, we will work on individual exercises and structures of combat in partnering formats, working on punches, kicks, falls, and martial sequences.

Saturdays | 10:00-11:00 | Neukölln with Jorge B. Auch auf Deutsch.

Self-Defense | Ground Techniques

The majority of street altercations involves fighting on the ground. Get an edge on the attacker by learning the intricate art of ground fighting. In this class, we exercise sweeps and submissions off the back while somebody is trying to punch us, as well as controlling a person so nobody gets hurt. Techniques from Brazilian jiu-jitsu build the core of this course. It is especially interesting if you want to learn to defend yourself against bigger stronger opponents.

Mittwochs | 18:00-19:15 | Neukölln mit Flowzone Fight Fitness (Samuel). Also in English.

Self-Defense | Standing Techniques

This course is dedicated to the standing portion of self-defense. You will learn to strike, kick, block, close the range, get out of chokes, and a lot more! But at the same time you will get your sweat going and get a great cardio and strength workout in. Expect a well-thought out combination of muay Thai, wrestling, boxing, Jeet Kune Do, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.

Montags | 19:15-20:15 | Neukölln mit Flowzone Fight Fitness (Samuel). Also in English.

Self-Defense | Takedowns

Nothing increases your chances of surviving a street attack like the ability to execute a takedown. But even though they are invaluable, takedowns are rarely included in self-defense programs. We are changing this dangerous tradition and offering you classes where you learn everything you need to know: from the proper stance to combining upper and lower body throws and sweeps. Boost your chances of winning by attending our takedowns course!

Thursdays | 20:00-21:00 | Neukölln mit Flowzone Fight Fitness (Samuel). Also in English.

Self-Defense | Yin & Yang

This course is about balance and combining opposite but interconnected forces when it comes to training. Learn how to protect yourself in a peaceful setup, through sharp self-defense techniques, strength and mindfulness. Each training closes with a meditation that varies among breathwork, affirmation, and gong practices. With the physical part of the session, you will feel strong, while the technical part will leave you feeling confident and the closing meditation will make you feel safe and happy.

Fridays | 19:45-21:00 | Wedding with Mert. Auch auf Deutsch.
