MARTIAL ARTS ASSOCIATION
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 and training in the ancient ways of armed and unarmed close quarters hand to hand combat.
This website is this association's only presentation to the general public. As you may have already noticed, this website does not exhibit any cutting edge technology. We are not interested in attracting the average high-tech loving internet surfing consumer. We could care less how many 'hits' our website receives. We also do not waste our time, energy or money advertising or promoting our organization in any other way. You will not find us on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter or even the 'Yellow Pages'.
We do not even disclose the location of our training facility (dojo) or membership related costs here. If our facility's location or how much it will cost you is of primary concern to you, ...more important than what we have to offer you, ...what we have to offer is not for you!
We are interested in considering only serious individuals for acceptance into this association. By serious, we do not mean tough young men, we mean any individual who will take the training we offer seriously. This website was designed specifically to contain the basic information necessary for an individual to decide whether they desire to continue to apply for membership.
We are not trying to 'sell' our services here. Our philosophy is simple: If a person needs to be 'sold' our services, that person is not worth having as a member. This is not a 'Secret Society' but like most of those societies, we do not recruit, we only accept worthy applicants.
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. More information about this 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.”
