Upcoming Cincinnati Quest Center Martial Arts Events

 

Workshop: Pre-Attack Indicators

Saturday, January 18th  (1 PM – 2:30 PM)

In this extremely important workshop, we’ll go over some of the most common indicators that someone is targeting you or that violence is about to happen.

Awareness gives us more time and options, but we also need to know what exactly we should be aware of.

We will discuss several common indicators, watch several videos of these indicators in actual security and video footage, and above all make sure we gain an appreciation of looking out at the world with curiosity and a dose of caution, rather than paranoia and fear.

This is a workshop not to be missed!

Cost is $45 for non-CQC students
$30 for Cincinnati Quest Center students
CQC Black Belt Club Members can attend for free!

Graduation!

Thursday, January 23rd  (6 PM – 7:30 PM)  

Join us for Cincinnati Quest Martial Arts’ first group graduation!. Graduating students will be guided through a short demonstration of their skills, students may be given a ‘decision-making’ challenge, then will be awarded their belts. There will be black belt demonstrations as well! It is not often students get to see black belts perform at their level, so don’t miss this opportunity to join in the celebrations!

Our regular Level 1 and Level 2 classes will be cancelled this evening. We expect graduation to last 1 to 1.5 hours and intend for black belt class and historical class to begin at their regular times this evening, but as this is our first graduation at this location please bear with us if things don’t start exactly on time!

Upcoming Tools & Tactics Class Themes

Monday, January 6th (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Striking Skills

This evening’s class will cover a variety of different striking skills, how we can use them in multiple situations, as well as how to develop more speed and power for each strike we use.

 

Monday, January 13th (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Developing Fighting Spirit

Fighting spirit or winning spirit is just as important as technique. Perhaps even more important. But it is also a skill that can be developed. We’ll go over several exercises to help build up that spirit and give several homework assignments to keep the growth going all year.

 

Monday, January 20th (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Ground Pins

In most cases, as a civilian, we want to escape at the end of a fight. In the unusual event that we need to hold an attacker in place to keep them from harming others, we need a special set of skills. We’ll go through several techniques and strategies for pinning an attacker down.

Monday, February 10th (7:30 to 8:15 pm)

Flexible Tools

Any flexible item can be used to deflect or control in self-defense. Some items, such as a belt with a buckle, could also be used to strike as a way to distract and escape. While some self-defense tools are more effective than others, knowing how to use anything in our environment is an important part of self-protection.

Multiple Attackers

Dealing with one attacker can be difficult enough. Dealing with more than one is exponentially more challenging. In this class, we’ll look at some beginning concepts to deal with multiple threats.

Upcoming Historical Class Themes

 

Thursday, January 2nd (8:15 to 9:00 pm)

Takagi Yoshin Ryu Shoden

One of our themes for 2020 will be the historical lineage of Takagi Yoshin Ryu. In this series of classes we’ll introduce this school of history and begin the exploration of concepts. We will start from our fundamental historical movement, and look at how that becomes more advanced Takagi Yoshin Ryu material. (Each technique will be taught step-by-step and built upon so all experience levels will get something out of these classes.)
