Rogue is a complete martial art program.
Our instructors have trained intensively and passed curriculum tests (including coaching exams through the Olympic Center) in order to earn their instructorships. We have been professionals in both clinical psychology and primary through university level education. To add to your peace of mind, our instructors have all passed yearly FBI background screenings because we are also parents and know that you need to be sure that your child is in safe hands.
Our students learn all 4 empty hand ranges (Kicking, punching, trapping-clinch and grappling) and all 5 ranges of weapons. We make sure to cover all 5 areas of functional martial arts (technical, athletic, tactical, emotional, and environmental/scenario).
Rogue JKD’s primary objective is to help students increase the attributes they need for protecting themselves and their loved ones. Since the 1990’s, our instructors have been at the helm of this independent martial arts organization and specializing in the arts that comprise Jeet Kune Do, Jeet Kune Do Concepts and Filipino Martial Arts. This includes Boxing, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiujitsu.
What makes us different? Many martial arts schools can teach you MMA and Filipino arts progressions, but at Rogue you will have the benefit of learning under an instructor who worked as a professional in preventing and neutralizing actual violence and crisis.. Because professionals (navy seals, police and even FBI swat team members) have relied on us for their training, we need to make sure that YOU can make your skills work when you need them. Here, you will not be given only information and some moves, but you will learn an actual skillset and to manage your fear and anger so your emotions do not undermine your decisions judgments, and actions. (A.K.A. emotional content—the single most undertrained area of martial arts).
Rogue’s vision endeavors to honor the principles and attitudes that Bruce Lee (and those gifted instructors who have taught us) held (still hold) dear. These are: functionality, competence, independence, authenticity, awareness, freedom, creativity, self-expression.
