PERFECTION OF THE ART OF SPEED, TIMING, AND REFLEXES
Balintawak offers a great compliment to other martial arts and is a great stand alone martial art that focuses heavily on control, speed, reflexes, and hand-eye coordination. All in a proven way that is learned in stages to acquire a great foundation in the art form of Balintawak Eskrima with Guro George. Balintawak Eskrima or Arnis is a combat system developed by Anciong Bacon in the 1950's. It's primarily a single stick system however, it is not just a stick or blade fighting art. Balintawak is equally adept at both weapons and empty-hand fighting. In Balintawak, the stick is only used to enhance and train the individual for bare hands fighting, and to achieve perfection in the art of speed, timing and reflexes necessary to acquire defensive posture and fluidity in movement.

THE ART OF KICKING AND PUNCHING
THE BALANCE OF BEAUTY AND POWER!
Although Taekwondo’s roots were first developed over 20 centuries ago in Korea, it was not officially recognized as a system of self-defense until the 1950′s when a group of leading Korean martial artists came together and unified their various art forms under a single style of hand and feet fighting. They named this martial art Taekwondo. The most important fact about Taekwondo is that it is both a superior art of self-defense and a technique of mental discipline. It gives its practitioners self-confidence, self-respect, self-discipline, and coordination. These mental characteristics along with the physical ability are beneficial to the mental life of individuals as well as to their families and friends.
Today, Taekwondo is the most recognized martial art in the world, and a popular Olympic and international sport. Grandmaster Bell is a former U.S. Olympic Training Center resident athlete, Olympic qualifier participant, professional athlete as seen on ESPN2 and Pay-Per-View, an 8th degree black belt in Taekwondo with 48 years experience, Arizona's highest ranking active Kukkiwon black belt and Arizona's most diverse Taekwondo master instructor with black belts in 6 different martial arts.
