Instruction at Logans Martial Arts
Logans Martial Arts offers classes in Kenpo, Kickboxing, Grappling and Escrima.
Below is a brief description of each area of instruction and our particular approach.
In Kenpo we focus on devastating hard core self defense skills but Kenpo has many other benefits as well far beyond just the physical. Kenpo is a unique art form of spiritual growth, health, and personal responsibility. Our Kenpo is a blend of Kosho-Ryu from Okinawa, Shaolin Kung Fu and many other arts as well. It has elements of Aikido, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Shaolin White Tiger Chin-na, Escrima, Kali and Shotokan Karate. Kenpo is a street effective martial art teaching both offensive and defensive methods. It encompasses armed and unarmed self defense techniques both standing and on the ground. We also teach some traditional weapons like the Bo (staff), Kama, Sai, Katana, Broadsword, Tonfa and Whip Chain. Sparring is also an integral part of Kenpo. It teaches timing, distance, and control of emotions.
Krav Maga (pronounced (kräv) (mägä) is Hebrew for "contact combat." It is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF), and is used by members of several US Law enforcement agencies including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the US Secret Service, and the US Armed Forces, as well as many other elite combat, defense, and law enforcement units around the world. It has become one of the premier civilian self defense systems.

In our kickboxing class we will teach you actual kickboxing techniques. You will get a great workout and have a blast doing it. Every class is different you won't get bored or feel like you are stuck in a rut doing the same old thing class after class. Our kickboxing blends techniques from American rules, International and Muay-Thai. Every class is taught at your level whether your in top shape or just starting out. Our instructors have years of experience teaching and they will insure you learn to do the techniques PROPERLY. On your first class you will work one on one with an instructor who will answer any questions you may have. A FULLY TRAINED INSTRUCTOR STAYS IN THE ROOM TEACHING THE ENTIRE CLASS SO YOU GET THE BEST POSSIBLE TRAINING.
We have students returning year after year to train with us because we have the best kickboxing program in the area.
Kickboxing students can spar on Fridays with Martial Arts students to test their abilities.
Our style of grappling we call street grappling because we don't focus just on tournament techniques. We also work all the stuff that's against the rules. In a self defense situation you need what works fast. A lot of these techniques come directly from my experience as a bouncer in Montana. After training in Judo and Jiu-Jitsu they were refined further plus many counter moves were found and added. Sometimes we even add a weapon (training of course) to the mix just to make it more realistic. You just never know what will happen on the street.
Escrima is a Filipino Martial Art that uses stick or knife or a combination of both for self defense. There are many styles of Filipino Martial Arts. Modern Arnis, Escrima, Kali are just a few and the list goes on and on. There are many family styles also taught from father to son. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the best in the world. One of which was the late Grand Master Remy Presas and the others are Tuhon Ray Dionaldo, Lakan Rico Cortes and Lakan Mike Jennings of Filipino Combat Systems (fcskali.com and tallahasseefcs.com) and Bruce Chiu of International Modern Arnis.
To them I owe much.
