  Sa-Gi-Do: Deadly Techniques of the Arts".  
Most Martial Arts have become so commercialized that many people view them as recreational exercises. This places the martial arts in the position described by the following Korean proverb: The monk was not interested in the (religious) Service but was only interested in taking the food after the Service.    The art of SA-GI-DO is a traditional American Martial Art developed by Grandmaster Alan K. Kates. The name of the art is communicated by the Korean Language because of the relative simplicity of the language in the expression of ideas related to the Martial Arts in comparison to English. Furthermore, it is an expression of respect and appreciation towards the Korean systems, from which SA GI DO takes many of it's basic techniques.   Literally translates, SA-GI-DO means "Deadly Techniques of the Arts".

Ki-inner power or life force Do-the way of life

This martial arts and self defense system consist of circular motions incorporating kicks, punches, throwing, joint-locks (breaks) and submission techniques (choke holds).  It is a versatile style of martial arts designed to teach you distance and close contact self defense.  The attacks focus on the weakest parts of the opponent’s body such as arteries, nerves, joints, and organs, known as pressure points.  The defensive movements are circular motions to diminish or neutralize the attacker’s power.

Tae Kwon Do  means “The art of kicking and punching”

What is Kodokan  Judo                                                               Judo is many things to different people. It is a fun sport, an art, a discipline, a recreational or social activity, a fitness program, a means of self-defense or combat, and a way of life.  Kodokan Judo comes to us from the fighting system of feudal Japan. Founded in 1882 by   Dr. Jigoro Kano, Judo is a refinement of the ancient martial art of Jujutsu. Dr. Kano, President of the University of Education, Tokyo, studied these ancient forms and integrated what he considered to be the best of their techniques into what is now the modern sport of Judo. 

Judo was introduced into the Olympic Games in 1964 and is practiced by millions of people throughout the world today. People practice Judo to excel in competition, to stay in shape, to develop self-confidence, and for many other reasons.

   History of Filipino Martial Arts                                     The history of the Philippines stretches all the way back as far as 900 AD. Examining the history of the Philippines as a nation, it is clear that martial arts have always been an essential part of the Filipino society. Many different cultures and migrants influenced the martial arts of the Philippines, like in many other places.

     Muay Thai                                                                   Muay Thai has a long history in Thailand and is the country's national sport. Traditional  Muay Thai practiced today varies significantly from the ancient art Muay Boran and uses kicks and punches in a ring with gloves similar to those used in Western boxing. Muay       Thai is referred to as "The Science of Eight Limbs", as the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art. A master practitioner of Muay Thai thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight "points of contact," as opposed to "two points" (fists) in Western boxing and "four points" (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts.
