MARTIAL ARTS ASSOCIATION

        31 YEARS OF MARTIAL ARTS INSTRUCTION

The Northern Crane Martial Arts Association has been specializing since 1986 in teaching non-competitive survival fighting skills that have been handed down for centuries from teacher to student and that can be utilized by anyone in any self-defense situation. We teach these skills in an intellectually stimulating, pleasant and friendly environment.

The Northern Crane Martial Arts Association was established for the purpose of exploring, researching, training in and passing down the ancient ways of armed and unarmed close quarters hand to hand combat. 

If you have arrived at this website you have already achieved something quite unique, it took effort.  It isn't  frequently visited and it is this association's only presentation to the general public. We do not advertise or promote our organization in any other way. This website does not use any spectacular photos or graphics or videos.  It doesn't employ any cutting edge technology to attract web traffic.  We could care less how many 'hits' our website receives.  If however,  you are interested in a no nonsense approach to self-defense and an in-depth education in time proven close quarters survival techniques you have come to the right place. 

The curriculum of this association includes training in weapons (ancient and modern), striking, kicking, grappling, pressure point manipulation, ground-fighting and all other survival techniques battlefield proven to be effective.

The core of the association's curriculum is primarily based on Okinawan Matsumura Seito Shorinryu Hakutsuru Karatejutsu & Kobujutsu. However, aspects of Kodenkan Danzanryu Kenpojujitsu,  Yamaneryu Kenjutsu, Tantojutsu, Sojutsu, Taijutsu & Kobujutsu, Modern Arnis & Escrima, Yang Style Taijiquan (Tai Chi) & Jian,  firearms, western boxing and MOAB (Management Of Aggressive Behavior) training have also been incorporated into the curriculum of the association. In other words, everything necessary for surviving any dangerous criminal assault.

 PLEASE NOTE:  The Northern Crane Martial Arts Association does not, under any circumstances, accept applicants under the age of twelve because the curriculum of this association is not suitable for participants younger than adolescence. We also do not disclose the location of our training facility (dojo) or any training costs at this website. More information about these topics is included in the Frequently Asked Questions tab.

"To be a pacifist is to be a man of peace. To truly be one you must first be able to defend yourself. Then you have a choice you can make: To fight or not to fight. If you cannot defend yourself, you do not have that choice to make. You are merely helpless.
