Our mission is to reach, inspire, and influence 500,000 citizens, training them to be a positive supreme force for good in the community. We are conveniently located in the greater Charlotte Metro Area of North Carolina.

 

 

WE HELP CITIZENS BECOME HIGH-SPEED CIVILIANS

S Fighting Arts turn everyday citizens into high-speed civilians by specializing in continuous firearm training, defense, and dangerous skills improvement. Our vision is to safeguard humanity by fostering a safer, more alert society and protect what matters most.

 

 

WE CONTINUOUSLY TRAIN IN ORDER TO PROTECT AND LIVE THE GOOD LIFE 

 

We believe in living the good life (aka "a meaningful life") which demands that we all look beyond ourselves and importantly, hold ourselves both individually and collectively - responsible for a greater good. In doing so we protect each other in life, liberty while ensuring happiness.

 

The Method

We will teach you our four (4) pillars which is applicable to every realistic scenario and aspect of your life while preparing you for the most unpredictable and plausible situations. 

The Approach

You will learn how to be effective and efficient in escaping imminent threat of death, great bodily harm, or sexual assault, defending yourself, and loved ones 

WE EQUIP YOU TO BE POWERFUL 

Just as every day unfolds differently in life, no class in S Fighting Arts is ever the same as the last one.  We are one of the few realistic fighting arts that explores overcoming uncertainty, unpredictability and fear.  Many times, training will include weapons such as knives, firearms, sticks, etc. and include striking, kicking, wrestling, and grappling as well as multiple attackers with different weapons.  The reality is you'll never know what you may experience in a class with us which will make you a better protector, defender and civilian should stuff hit the fan.  In all things be empowered, grounded, clear and coherent.

The Process

Explore combative arts using realistic scenarios, ideas and concepts to defensive situations. Unlearn personal bad habits. Use only what is functional and practical.

SYSTEMA
"The System"

Test, experiment, train and implement Systema​ into your fitness, fighting arts, and firearm training. Systema is life. 

WE REPRESENT PEACE OF MIND 
 

In America, the Bald Eagle is bold, majestic, and faithful. The Bald Eagle can be found on government buildings, official documents, currency, and flags unique to North America, they are our symbol for strength, survival, freedom, independence, and determination. What does the "S" in S Fighting Arts stand for? The "S" is short for Seiryu (Japanese for Azure Dragon or the "spirit of Seiryuu") which is essentially equivalent to the American word"Supreme" which symbolizes the American Bald Eagle. 

 

 

Without S Fighting Arts and organizations like us, there's no telling how the community would get the necessary training to handle unexpected threats, strife, and calamity. Likewise, there's no telling what uncertainty could do to our respective communities. That is why S Fighting Arts trains citizens to be ready and respond to scenarios regardless. Always be a supreme positive force for good and live a good life.  

 

 

Therefore, our Dragon logo represents:

  • Supreme strength.

  • Supreme survival.

  • Supreme independence.

  • Supreme determination.
