SJD Class Structure
San Jieh Dao is structured in such a way so that each student
traveling through its educational path can gain the maximum benefit and be
fully equipped in the art of combat.
San Jieh Dao is therefore set with 3 main phases with
each phase comprising of 3 levels. Each of the levels are invisible to
the students, and there are no signs or insignia indicating who is at which
level. These levels are meant more for the instructors than the
students, so that the San Jieh Dao instructors can properly identify and
appropriately categorize their students. Level one represents Beginner
and Level two represents Intermediate and Level three represents Advance for each Phase.
Phase I = “Exposure”
Phase II = “Application”
Phase III = “Fusion”
means, being exposed to the elements and
concepts that is embedded in SJD. Exposure also means that Phase 1
students learn to be exposed to their own biological formation and their
strengths and weaknesses. They go through this self-discovery process,
beginning with Phase 1 and continuing to the upper classes.
means that students’ focal point is now to apply what they have been exposed
to in Phase 1 in a viable sense in Phase 2. Application brings about
more cluster dynamic training. Because students’ ability to intake the
material has increased, they therefore can learn to be exposed to more
material and continually learning new elements and concepts and philosophies
in Phase 2.
means that elements and concepts students have learned can now be fully
fused in and integrated together. Their ranges, their biological
tools, and all the concepts will now be fused in with each other as a means
of developing their combative skills in SJD in a much deeper and
comprehensive level. I like to emphasize that students learning process does
not end here; it only continues.
SJD Phase I
SJD Phase II
SJD Phase III
Above and Beyond the regular Phase classes, which encompass the entire
spectrum of the art, periodically we will offer Micro or Supplemental classes which would enhance and accelerate the learning ability and speed of
the individual students. These classes are meant to focus on
sprecific aspects of the art. They could range from
either Stick (weapon) classes, or Boxing, or Grappling/Wrestling,
or Trapping or other needed focused areas, such as basic or
advanced Self Defense or even general SJD Kickboxing... etc.
General SJD Classes
Woman classes are a very unique blend of SJD curriculum, that are
specifically designed for females of all ages (ages 14-17 need to have their
parents co-sign the application). They get right to the point of SJD
combative self defense martial arts. They comprise of both high and low
impact training and elements, which include a well balanced set of the
entire spectrum of San Jieh Dao martial arts, enhanced by the unique SJD
Cardio Kickboxing, SJD Cardio Boxing, SJD Stick weaponry and a whole host of
Combative Defensive elements against various types of attacks. The
curriculum and the material in this class assures to deliver and develop the
Practical Combative-Self-Defense skills and Confidence along with the a
healthy training routine that the students need in order to overcome any
aggressive situation. All the zones and ranges are covered including:
Kicking, Boxing, Trapping, Standing Grappling, Ground Grappling, Rolls,
Falls, Choke Holds, Locks and Submissions... etc.
