What is HARRISON MARTIAL ARTS?
To understand what HMA is, you first have to understand what we are not.
Up to 90% of all martial arts schools in the entire United States are what is known as a child-based after school business, an MMA gym, Brazilian JiuJitsu school, or some other over popularized name or term that has been widely used and marketed in order to attract those particular clients. Each one having their own pros and cons.
Since the wide popularization of these new (volume based) business models, most adult programs have been re-outfitted through the image of After School Care (day care), MMA, or Competitive Martial Arts to help appease the general populations uneducated interest. This is done by using mass social media marketing and popularity to help maintain these new businesses continue to thrive, but unfortunately, the education and training for adult programs has not been taken as seriously as it should be, and many adults are becoming more and more disillusioned, fooled and uninspired by martial arts all together.
Less than 7% of the entire population of the U.S. participates in martial arts on ANY LEVEL, that’s youth and adults combined. That’s less than 17 million people total. We currently populate 321 million people in the United States.
To give you an idea of how few Americans train, Florida alone currently populates aprox 20 million people.
What does this mean? 93% of all Americans are completely DEFENSELESS against an average street attack.
We believe that in order to properly protect ourselves, our children and each other in this ever changing and unpredictable world, adult combat intelligence through physical training is critical and cannot be overlooked. The intelligence and training of adults is equally, if not more important as the education and training of children; it is OUR JOB TO PROTECT THEM.
Our business focuses ONLY on the continuing tactical development of adults, their safety, their physical and mental skills, and the understanding of everyday violence prevention and preparation, physically, emotionally and mentally.
What we are.
HMA is a state of the art cognitive developmental and physical training program which utilizes the 4 ranges of combat and other various forms of martial arts to increase physical health and wellness, mental aptitude, attention span, brain efficiency (executive function), emotional health and stability, mental health and stability, everyday awareness, peace of mind and personal safety–as well as increased physical, perceptual and visual speed for athletes of all types. This is done by training the mind and the body in various systems of martial arts which train and enable higher brain function and aptitude to occur more regularly at a higher level.
One of the many systems we utilize to achieve this process is an art called KALI, a system of Filipino martial arts which is widely known for its use of weapons, tools and progressive flow drills, and has been made widely popular in many blockbuster hollywood films and TV series such as; Netflix’s Daredevil, The Bourne Identity trilogy, Jack Reacher, The Arrow TV series, and many more.
According to a movement research study done by Dr. Adele Diomand, a Professor of Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, found that bimanual coordination, rhythmic motion and frequently crossing the midline of the body, and hand eye coordination are particularly valuable when researching executive function in the brain. KALI is one of the most well-known systems in the world to effectively encompass all of these physical and mental aspects, thereby improving one’s executive cognitive function and physical prowess.Adele Diamond Bio and Research
