In the video above, my student, PJ, feeds Guro Bryan straight punches from Guro Bryan's open guard. Guro Bryan is splitting the punches, simulating the eye jab, and capturing the arm. On both sides, after Guro Bryan splits and captures, he follows up on each side with three of the following strikes:

1. Punches
2. Slaps
3. Elbows
4. Ridge-hands

After Guro Bryan demonstrates all four follow-up strikes on both sides, he will demo the split-entry-to-capture slowly on both sides, and then quickly on both sides. Keep in mind that this is a series for self-defense. If you eye jab in submission grappling, or even MMA, you will be disqualified.

Enjoy the video.

WHO ELSE WANTS AFFORDABLE MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES FROM AN EXPERT WHO IS CERTIFIED BY THE WORLD’S BEST INSTRUCTORS, WHO IS ALSO A PROFESSIONAL EDUCATOR WITH A DOCTORATE?

Dear Reader,

I have been blessed in my 15 year martial arts journey to obtain certification as an instructor (equivalent to first degree black belt) from some of the world’s top martial arts teachers.

In September of 2011, I achieved a lifelong goal and opened a commercial martial arts school located on the border of Walnut and Pomona.

I currently teach 48 hours a month of group classes for both children and adults.I teach 8 systems of martial arts at my school.

Some of the highlights of my curriculum:

  • THAI BOXING (Muay Thai): national sport of Thailand
  • Ground Fighting: a system of grappling integrating the best of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Jeet Kune Do Grappling, Japanese Shooto, and Greco Roman Wrestling.
  • WING CHUN KUNG FU: The Chinese martial art featured in the Ip Man films.
  • DOG BROTHERS MARTIAL ARTS: (As seen on Spike and CNN) Martial arts researchers who fight with heavy sticks with a minimum of protective equipment. My students are not required to fight in such extreme circumstances, but from whom would you rather learn self-defense against weapons: someone who has been in 50 Dog Brothers stick fights, or someone who imagines what it’s like to be in 50 Dog Bros stick fights?
  • THE INOSANTO/LACOSTE SYSTEM OF KALI (Filipino Martial Arts): An integrated weapons system, as seen in The Bourne Identity movies with Matt Damon

The Phase classes will introduce students to the arts in which students must learn material in order to test for rank under Guro Bryan. The remaining classes each night are devoted to going into more detail in the particular arts.

Dr. Bryan Stoops currently divides his curriculum into two main areas of testing and instructor certification: the empty-handed martial arts (Jeet Kune Do, Grappling, Thai Boxing, Savate, Silat, and Wing Chun), which are tested on a Phase/sash program, and the weapons-based arts (Inosanto/LaCoste and Dog Brothers), which are tested on a Phase/belt program. Some of the students at the Stoops Martial Arts Academy study both systems, while others specialize in one area.

Dr. Bryan Stoops also will test students for their Level I and Level II certification in Thai Boxing, according to the standards established by the Thai Boxing Association of America (T.B.A.). However, students working towards Muay Thai certification may only test after joining the T.B.A.

PLEASE ENJOY THIS FREE EXCERPT FROM MY SELF-DEFENSE GUIDE:

Guro/Dr. Bryan Stoops

The hard part with all martial arts/self-defense training: the hope is that you never have to use it.

Just like having a burglar alarm, it’s there for peace of mind. Most houses/apartments have a sliding glass door in the back, and/or a big window in the front.  

If someone really wanted to break in, they would just throw something through the window and climb in. It’s the fear of what’s inside that stops most criminals.

They don’t know if there is an alarm, or sometimes they do if there is a big sign. They also don’t know if you have a gun, or a dog, or self-defense training.

I hope no one reading this EVER has to test their martial arts material, but if you do, you must go into your training with the knowledge that while there is no unbeatable system, but you have taken the time to gain knowledge, tactics, techniques, and ideas that give you a greater percentage of making it through than someone lacking that information.

A big part of martial arts is coming to terms with what you will do if someone steps over that line. A home invasion is very much stepping over the line.

Sometimes scenarios offer limited danger, and your response should reflect that. If “drunken Uncle Johnny” decides to “test your kung-fu” at a family party, eye jabbing him, or cutting his femoral artery is not necessary.

Sometimes, you get into a fight where there is the potential to be hurt, but you know you’re not going to die, not even close.

Sometimes, someone walks into a business with a gun and demands money, and even after it is surrendered to them, they shoot anyway.

Another part of martial arts is coming to terms with the fact that sometimes bad things happen.

Sometimes they happen to strangers.

Sometimes they happen to friends.

Sometimes they happen to family.

Sometimes they happen to you.

Martial arts training is all about finding your authentic self in order to live a happy life, while being prepared in case something bad does happen. I DO NOT want to turn you into a person who cannot enjoy life, but I don’t want to fail to instill a new awareness in you.

Just by reading this article, and recognizing that there is NO unbeatable system, you have begun the journey to greater personal awareness, and the development of your personal self-defense plan is under way.
