Paul Forth.
I have trained with Paul for a while now and can't recommend training here enough. An emphasis is placed on learning practical defence that can apply in a variety of fight scenarios which I have found lacking at other places trained at.

The best martial arts class I have been to, building confidence, fitness and skill. Got a great personal feel unlike most schools where you get lost in a crowd. Highly recommend. Not having hidden costs is perfect as you know where you stand.

FAQ's at Interception Martial Arts.

What if I have never trained Martial Arts before? 

Everyone was a beginner once. We all took that first step and walked into a gym alone, I did it and so did every person training at Interception Martial Arts. In each class we drill the basics all the time, because after all, you have to walk before you run. No one here will judge you and you are only in competition with yourself. That is the best thing about Jeet Kune Do and the Rapid Assault Tactics, become the best you can be not the best there is, after all, “Showing off is a fool’s idea of glory” – Bruce Lee. 

Not sure I am fit enough. 

Then turn up and train. The only secret to any form of martial arts, sports & any skill is to be consistent. We will develop your skill if you bring the will. Fitness will build with each class as well as flexibility and your confidence. As always confidence is key, no point looking like a Greek god if you feel scared on the inside. I am not promising you will be in the next Olympics, Our promise is to change  your outlook on life bringing any change you want.

I can only come once a week/ can’t come on training nights. 

we all have busy lives and fitting in a Self defence or martial arts class can be hard work. However, if you really want and need it you will find away. There is a once a week training package in the Rapid Assault Tactics as well of private 1-2-1 training for you. These can be booked almost anytime and we have a great monthly payment discount. 

What martial arts & self defence classes do you run?

At Interception Martial Arts Hull we teach two “systems” although they are related. 

The Rapid Assault Tactics  were developed by Paul Vunak for the US Navy SEALS. Navy SEALS are elite soldiers that needed a system that worked in real life against the worse people. Rapid Assault Tactics has been used in war zones all over the world. 

Bruce Lee’s Original Jeet Kune Do Concepts

“Using no way as way. Having no limitation as your only limitation.”

― Bruce Lee, Tao of Jeet Kune Do

In laymen’s terms, JKD is about doing what works and making it personal while using the fighting concepts of Bruce Lee. JKD is not about learning masses of skills but making what you have work in many situations and keeping it simple. Jeet Kune Do was never developed for sport only self defence. 

How much will it cost?

First of all, the cost is relative. Everyone has different priorities and income. A 20 year old living at home may earn half as much as 40 year old with a family but have far more spare income to enjoy life with. 

We all know of gyms and Martial Arts academies charging a small fortune to train. Hopefully, I have kept the pricing simple – Once a week is £20 a month, twice a week is £30 a month. 1-2-1 training is £25 per hour for one-offs or £80 a month for an hour a week and the group classes are free. 

Why don’t you do gradings? 

Earning a Karate black belt is an achievement because it shows you have loyalty, determination and ability. It does not show you can protect yourself. Self defence is the only reason Interception Martial Arts exists, not grades or competitions. Training really hard to win a competition can lessen your ability to fight for your life. To be a champion requires dedication most people can not give, so if you don’t want to be the next international superstar why waste your time trying to be? you will not find a better system than the Rapid Assault Tactics for self defence classes if time is short. Remember  it works for the special forces it will work for you!
