Mo Duk Pai

The Mo Duk Pai program is a broad and practical martial arts program. We cover strikes, kicks, blocks, throws, locks, weapons, grappling, philosophy, teaching, self defense, sparring and fitness. Classes listed as “Mo Duk Pai” on the schedule are open to students of all levels and abilities, ages 13 and up.

Sparring class is a chance for students to put on gloves and boots and try to see if all the striking skills that they have learned in class work against a resisting opponent. Most of the time in this class, we play tournament sparring – a game in which the first person to strike gets a point and then the players are separated. Sometimes we will play other striking games like continuous sparring, boxing or kickboxing. All levels and abilities of students are welcome, ages 13 and up. All students who attend are encouraged to wear a mouthpiece and male students are encouraged to wear a groin protector.

The beginner Mo Duk Pai class is just that – a space for new students to learn the basic stances, strikes, kicks, blocks and moves that our program has to offer.  Class consists of a warm up, review of technique, drills that revolve around that technique and then a cool down.  Non beginner students are encouraged to attend to help work with the beginners (as well as get their own separate rank appropriate work out).

This class is about getting comfortable in the clinch. The term Chi-sao means sticky hands, and the idea is to always stay in contact with your partner. Students will be taught strikes, elbows, kicks, throws, sweeps and anything else you can think of when you’re in tight with your partner.
