Welcome to the Evolution of Martial Arts and the Modern Warrior.
Built on a foundation of self-protection and self-mastery, were tradition meets sport, meets reality.
In 2020, to be a complete martial artist/modern warrior, one must be able to survey the environment, lead and navigate internal and external conflict, flow through all ranges of combat, including weapons, multiple opponents, and master the moment by mastering the breath.
What is Aiki-Jitsu Fusion?
Aiki-Jitsu Fusion is an integration of traditional martial arts, combat sports, functional fitness, and modern psychology/sociology, that takes a progressive approach to self-preservation. Aiki-Jitsu Fusion works consistently because it is based on navigating internal, verbal and physical conflict, employing simple, applied psychology, and physics, using proper body-mechanics, bio-mechanics, timing, angles, interception of force, and redirection of energy. Aiki-Jitsu is one of the oldest Japanese martial arts, dating back more than five hundred years ago to the time of the Samurai warriors, were strategy and tactics were of utmost importance. In today’s reality, we deal with different adversaries, but can still utilize this ancient wisdom.
Translated from Japanese, Jitsu means “Art /Science/Technique”, and Aiki means “Intercepting Force/Blending Energy”, and is the style in which we practice. Aiki-Jitsu Fusion (aka AJF), is constantly being up-dated and refined, to keep relevant with modern times. AJF strives to navigate conflict peacefully, ethically, responsibly, and with minimal to zero chance of injury to every practitioner. AJF is a fun and versatile practice that teaches, centering, meditation, breath-work, threat detection/assessment, mindset, and conflict navigation. The physical techniques cover ranges of combat, tactical maneuvering, escapes, striking, throwing, take-downs, pins, chokes, joint locks and escorting techniques, in both standing and ground control. AJF utilizes single and multiple opponent control strategies, as well as armed and unarmed scenario-based training to educate, equip, and prepare each individual for real world theory and application. Private and group classes are for adults and teens.
How Does Aiki-Jitsu Fusion Work?
Aiki-Jitsu Fusion emphasizes “an early neutralization of an attack”. Of particular importance is the timing of an offensive and/or defensive technique, either to blend or to neutralize an attack’s effectiveness, and to use the force of the attacker’s movement against him/her. What sets AJF training apart from others, is the teaching methodology, which uses a building block approach to learning and understanding modern psychology and strategic mindset, with functional, tactical, and fluid movement. Students work with “partners” instead of “opponents” to minimize injury for both participants in each class. This creates an enjoyable experience and fosters an accelerated learning environment.
The physical techniques do not rely on strength, or size, but rather on the intelligent use of tactical strategy and technique to overcome such physical attributes. This type of intelligent and refined training will also lower the amount of energy the individual expends to accomplish his/her objectives. Our secret is in our training method.
Aiki-Jitsu Fusion Syllabus
AJF hosts an innovative, and carefully designed curriculum with a variety of basic techniques that can be learned with training and practice. Classes are small, challenging, and fun, yet respectful — with no hype or commercialization and with a focus on safety first. AJF can complement any martial art. In fact, many of our students and instructors are ranked in other styles as well. It is great for both beginners, intermediate, and advanced students alike. It is an effective self-protection and fitness system for teens, women, men, travelling executives, and worldly vacationers.
Each technique must meet the following requirements: easy to learn, be universal, easy to remember, AND easy to execute under pressure. The Bindner Academy believes that you can learn a highly effective movement and self-protection form of martial art in a traditional Japanese training atmosphere without having to engage in aggression, or external competitions.
Classes run every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 7:30-8:30 pm.
