Some of the martial arts styles included in the training are Shaolin Kempo Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Chin Na, Wrestling, Cheng Man Ching Style Tai Chi Chuan, Muay Thai Kickboxing, softJUDO, Aikido, and Meditation. Students come from all over San Diego to learn these traditional forms of self-defense.
The teachers are dedicated to preserving, and passing on to students, the quality and integrity of the martial arts.
The facility is located in North County San Diego in the City of Poway. The student body is varied; with the majority of students being adults. This is in part because many adults have seen the efficacy of training in several different martial arts. Many black belts and advanced students have joined ISDC over the years because of the teaching and training methods. The center maintains a high standard for rank promotion.
The school has attracted many students with advanced ranking in arts such as Tae Kwon Do, Ju Jitsu, Kempo, Karate, Chinese Arts, Tang Soo Do, Shotokan and numerous others. Each student is graded according to his/her own abilities and skills.
We use many special training aids such as punching bags, hand held bags, jump ropes, foam pads, and sparring gear. The training aids provide safety as well as the opportunity to experience the pleasure of developing new skills. The floor is completely matted with an Olympic caliber two-inch mat.
Training takes place two times per day for beginning level students. The atmosphere of the classes is relaxed and friendly with a premium placed on self-discipline, control and technique.
