Suggested Readings

Personal Protection goes beyond the physical skills.

Ending Domestic Violence Against Women begins with Awareness.  Join Bo Tanaka, in collaboration with Immortal Spirit Martial Arts Academy & Hawaii Krav Maga, in her very personal fight to end Domestic Violence Against the Women of Hawaii. Bo works with The Domestic Violence Action Center to spread Awareness on this very REAL issue.  Part of the proceeds for this event will be donated to The Domestic Violence Action Center so they continue their needed services to those who fall Victim to Domestic Violence.  This event has limited space and is expected to fill up quickly.  Show your support and join us in one of 3 sessions on Saturday, May 12th.  Register now with Bo @ 722-8922, or Jeff @ 561-2153.

The Seminar will be instructed by myself, Mr. Jeff Pelletier, I am a certified KRAV MAGA Instructor based in Honolulu, HI. With a wife and daughter of my own, I am very Aware of the necessity of Personal Protection Skills. I have over 26 years of Martial Arts experience, with a background in Shotokan Karate, TaeKwonDo, Muay Thai and Krav Maga.  Instructing out of Immortal Spirit Martial Arts Academy in Honolulu, I believe that the only way to truly be able to successfully protect yourself in the street is to train in a way that marries the Physical, Mental and the Emotional (stress) Components of the student. This is done through Adrenal Stress Response Conditioning which teaches students to deal with the inevitable Adrenal Rush (fear) that happens in any Attack. Without training under stress, the student becomes very proficient at defending an attack that is non-stressful.  Here in lies the dilemma.  Training without stress for a stressful situation is like learning Martial Arts from a Book.  Without a basis from which to start, you will never become effective at either.
