Seminars and Private Training
In addition to our regular Jujitsu training, we offer other specialized programs on an as-requested basis.
Women's Self Defense Programs
This multi-day program is a fun-filled and empowering journey through the many facets of women's self defense in the modern world. You will learn a far broader array of theory and self-defense techniques than would ever be possible in our one day seminars, and will come away a more confident, empowered, and savvy individual when it comes to the realities of protecting yourself, your property, and your loved ones. Please see the above brochure for a sample of the structure and content of our seminars.
We can also customize programs for one-off or short term women's self-defense seminars for you and/or your group. Let us know what you are looking for, and we can customize a program that's right for you!
Pressure-Point Control Tactics (PPCT)
Although the knowledge of the locations of pressure points as well as how to attack them has been around for hundreds of years, fairly recently research in police arrest and control tactics has greatly contributed to a much more scientific understanding of how they are affected by various methods of contact. The police PPCT system is made up of only the most practical, effective and easily accessible pressure points. The system is easy to learn, the techniques can be successfully applied by both males and females, and their use can easily be defended in court because of their low propensity to cause serious injury. From a martial artist's point of view this makes PPCT a must-know skill.
Persuader Keyholder (Yawara)
What makes the Keychain such an ideal tool of self-defense is that everyone needs to carry keys with us at all times; we all need keys for our house, apartment, car, office, mailbox, etc. That makes them readily available for use in a self-defense situation should you ever become the victim of an unprovoked and vicious physical assault. Apart from being very low-profile and non-threatening in appearance, the Keychain techniques themselves are very simple to learn and can be mastered in a few short hours. Due to the tremendous power that keychain blows can generate, persons of all ages and sizes can benefit from its use. Another great advantage is that you do not have to be an Olympic caliber athlete to apply the Keychain techniques forcefully and effectively. No special physical ability is required.
We also provide general self-defense workshops that can be tailored to your specific need. This general course covers introductory levels of:

Introduction to Jujitsu Program
We know trying new things can be scary. We know that walking into a martial arts club for the first time might feel intimidating.
We get it.
That’s why we’re offering you the opportunity to try Jujitsu on YOUR terms! Our Introduction to Jujitsu class is a fun, relaxed way for you and a friend to explore the art and our club to determine if it’s the right fit for you, without the pressures of anyone else being around.
Each class is 75 minutes long, and in it you will learn some fundamental concepts of Japanese Jujitsu such as balance breaking, how to strike properly, how to roll and fall, as well as one Jujitsu technique! You will sweat, you will laugh, you will hit stuff, and you will take the first steps of your martial arts journey with one-on-one instruction from an instructor with over 15 years experience.
It’s perfect for first timers who just want to get a feel for the art and our club without the pressures of a regular class environment.
Please see the Introduction to Jujitsu Program page for complete details.
IBK also offers private lessons for individuals and groups. Whether you are a current student looking for additional or specialized instruction, an individual or group that has participated in the Introduction to Jujitsu program and aren't quite ready to join a regular class, or just prefer the 1 on 1 training environment of a private lesson, we can accommodate your needs.
