ABOUT US

WHAT WE TEACH

We pride ourselves in offering traditional forms of everything we teach. We are an ITF TaeKwon-Do school, teaching patterns the way they were originally created by General Choi Hong Hi. Our emphasis is always on the technique in its purest form. We maintain very high standards for promotion and consider our Black Belts among the best. With an emphasis on Self Defense, we feel it is important that our students have the ability to defend themselves in any situation by the time they reach the Black Belt level. For this reason, we have incorporated many styles of martial arts into our Self Defense training. Character building is the foundation of our TaeKwon-Do program. We believe the tenets of TaeKwon-Do -courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit are the foundation of strong character. The journey to Black Belt builds character. As our students grow in character and confidence they become less likely to be a target

Krav Maga is the most widely recognized and most comprehensive reality based Self Defense system in the world today. Through our affiliation with KMG- Krav Maga Global, and Eyol Yanilov we maintain the integrity of what is being taught throughout the world as the most cutting-edge tactical Self Defense techniques. Our curriculum centers around Awareness, Avoidance, Action, and Aggression. We offer children’s and youth classes that deal with real-life situations on the playground or at school and frequently discuss how to stand up to bullies since this is so much of what they encounter.  Our adult classes focus on all Self Defense situations someone might encounter including weapons defense and defenses against various strikes, chokes and holds. We provide realistic training drills to recreate stress environments to not only help our students become more prepared but also to provide a great physical workout.

Our KickBoxing classes offer a unique combination of cardio, strength training, and core work. Different than other KickBoxing gyms, we focus on technique and functional striking techniques that could be used if someone ever needed to protect themselves. Unlike trending Kickboxing gyms or big gym cardio classes, we incorporate strength training into all of our workouts through body weight exercises, free weights, and kettlebells. Our clients experience success in weight loss, muscle building, and toning as well as increased cardio ability with ongoing training.

Silverback Self Defense is a division of Cypress Martial Arts and Fitness. We specialize in corporate, group and individual self-defense training through seminars, lunch & learns and private lessons. What makes us unique is that each seminar is custom designed to fit the client’s needs. We are continually training to offer the most up to date and best solutions for any type of self-defense situations.

Whether it’s TaeKwon-Do, Krav Maga, KickBoxing or Self Defense training our focus is on building confidence in our children and our adults. Confidence in who they are and confidence in how to defend themselves. Empowering them with skills that will help them hold their head up high and succeed in all areas of life.
