Karate

Location: Chamber Room at Fruita Civic Center

Black belt Pat Ament has practiced and taught karate for 35 years. He is an outstanding, sensitive,

safe, and insightful instructor who received his black belt directly from America’s premier

martial artist, the legendary Tsutomu Ohshima, headquartered in Santa Barbara, California. For

information about Shotokan Karate, the original Japanese karate and first karate to be taught

in America go online to SKA.org. This class is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to learn

about and practice true karate. Students will gain skills during every class, and will learn to build

off of those skills while continuing to practice every month. Karate is difficult to learn in the beginning,

but continued practice over several months will result in a fun and enjoyable experience.

Pat Ament and the City of Fruita have created a cost efficient Karate course to help encourage

anyone with a strong interest and desire in Karate to come learn from a great instructor. This is

an adult karate class, although children are allowed. Class meets from 10:00-11:30am Saturdays.

Real World Self Defense

Location: Fruita Community Center

Real World Self Defense (RWSD) is a commonsense

fusion of martial survival tactics. Based on

military doctrine, this is a System that functions

through natural body dynamics, making it a viable

defense option for ordinary citizens of every size

and gender as well as seasoned combat troops

in the field. Free of mysticism and unnecessary

rituals found in so many other inflexible styles and

gyms, this System is a fluid combination of Muay

Thai (contact), Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (grappling),

and military-grade Krav Maga (survival-byaggression)

that can be learned by anyone with a

will to Live.

Real World Self Defense was invented by Aleksandr

Kolpakov in conjunction with military and

martial specialists for education of domestic

violence survivors, law enforcement personnel,

as well the general public. RWSD is geared

towards assimilation of common-sense principles

into individual, every-day Life. www.realworldselfdefense.wordpress.com.
