Filipino Dirty Boxing -
Panantukan, Silat, & Boxing

Wednesday
(Routes & Motions)
7:30pm - 9:00pm

Filipino Dirty Boxing goes by many names: Panantukan, Suntukan, Pangamut, Mano Mano, and more. Commonly trained as a subset of the Filipino weapon arts, Dirty Boxing is as fascinating, fun, and functional as an empty-hand martial art can get. For this reason, MKG Dirty Boxing is taught as a stand-alone class, ensuring you get as much training time with this art as possible. You will develop the ability to deploy creative striking, joint manipulations, limb destructions, and off-balancing techniques for self defense, with the occasional cross-over into potential competitive fight application. Always a group favorite, MKG Dirty Boxing is one of the most unique martial art training experiences in the Detroit area.

Widely considered the progenitor of modern Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Jeet Kune Do (JKD) is a fascinating approach to self defense and applied martial art training.  This class combines elements of Boxing, Chinese Wing Chun, French Savate Kickboxing, and grappling.  JKD was developed by the late martial art luminary and film superstar Bruce Lee, along with his friend and training partner Dan Inosanto. MKG Detroit is proud to officially represent both JKD Expert/MKG Method founder Sifu Rick Faye, as well as Guro Dan Inosanto. Level testing and certification available.

Filipino Martial Arts -
Kali/Eskrima/Arnis

Wednesday
6:00 - 7:30pm

This class utilizes weaponry (sticks, short and long blades, impact weapons) and mobility training to improve your reflexes, cognitive function, and ability to defend yourself and your loved ones. Exciting drills and patterns safely teach you the various speeds, distances, and tools of simulated combat, while dramatically improving your familiarization with targets and weapons of opportunity. Taught to everyone from elite military units to the average enthusiast, Filipino Kali is one of the most effective and fascinating martial arts you will find. Level testing and certification is available.

Thai Kickboxing

Benefits include self defense development and a fantastic full-body workout. While fitness benefits will be easily found in every MKG class, Muay Thai serves as our highest cardio and combat conditioning platform. Open to all fitness levels.
