Adult Martial Art Class

Cornerstone Martial Arts Reno Adult Class

Our adult martial arts/self-defense program combines the best in mixed martial arts training and uses Bruce Lee’s Jun Fan Gung Fu/Jeet Kune Do as its base. This class lays a strong foundation and includes the complete JKD Kickboxing program, as well as a strong foundation of Krav Maga for combative self-defense. This class is focused primarily on street-self defense rather than sports competition. As the student progresses we explore all aspects of self-defense, as well as deeper aspects of Bruce Lee’s martial art, including: intercepting, trapping, joint locks, chokes, takedowns, and sensitivity/energy drills.


Students will also be introduced to empty hand and weapons training from Filipino Martial Arts, as well as arts such as Muay Thai, Silat, and many other martial arts. This is not a random selection of material, the curriculum has been carefully selected and tested to enhance the student’s growth and progress physically, mentally, and spiritually. Bruce Lee is considered by many to be the “father of mixed martial arts”, and the idea of combining kickboxing with groundfighting, Filipino Martial Arts, Muay Thai, and even Krav Maga, is something Jeet Kune Do practitioners have been doing for many years.


This is a well-developed concept and program that has been decades in the making.

Imagine a place where people are smiling, having fun, and building friendships while sweating and learning the most effective kickboxing and self-defense techniques available in Reno. A place with a family-friendly mixed martial arts program that allows “normal people” to have fun and learn highly effective martial arts like Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, Kickboxing, Filipino Martial Arts, and Krav Maga in a safe, positive environment. Imagine a place with classes that are so fun that you can’t wait to come back and train again, and so effective that you know that you are getting instant value from your training.


 Welcome to Cornerstone Martial Arts Reno.

 Faith-based. Values-driven.


Our unique Martial Arts/Self Defense Program draws from self-defense fighting systems such as the legendary Bruce Lee's “Jeet Kune Do” street-fighting Art (not the movie stuff), Filipino Martial Arts (stick, blade, and empty hand techniques handed down from WWII guerrilla fighters), Krav Maga, (the battle-tested combative system taught to the Israeli military), Silat, and more!


This is not a random selection of material; the curriculum has been carefully selected and pressure tested to enhance the student’s growth and progress physically, mentally, and spiritually.

 Each martial arts/self-defense system that is introduced builds upon and works synergistically with each of the other’s qualities.


While the training is reality-based and highly functional, it is taught in a manner that is safe, professional, and family-friendly.


There is literally nothing else like this available in Reno, or anywhere else.
