The disciplines taught: mainly Krav-Maga Self-Defense, Kick-Boxing, Muaythai (Thai Boxing), but also Kung Fu Wushu Sanda (Chinese Boxing), Pancrace, Complete Combat, etc.

A teaching, for everyone, adapted to the rhythm and specificities of each one, bringing multiple and fulfilling benefits

The practice of martial arts brings defense capabilities, specific technico-tactically, and, in fact, multiple benefits, from a psychical, physical and social point of view. Thus, these arts, beyond defense, are also arts of living promoting well-being.

The teaching within our Academy is provided within the framework of an educational approach and an environment adapted, for everybody, confirmed or beginners, at the rhythm and specificities of each.

- Babies (3 to 5 years old), practice these educational martial arts: Self-Defense Krav-Maga, Kickboxing, Muaythaï.

The courses are aimed for child's fulfillment while promoting general development before approaching the specific approach of martial arts. Psychomotor development (sensorimotor, emotional and relational skills) is the priority.

The playful teaching approach proposes motor experiences (promoting balance, coordination, laterality, flexibility) as well as the development of the body diagram (knowledge of the body) in an adapted environment. Ethical values are introduced like salvation, an expression of respect.

- Children (6 to 10 years old) or teenagers (11 to 14 years old), practice these educational martial arts: Self-Defense Krav-Maga, Kickboxing, Muaythaï.

The ethical values of "living together", an integral part of the martial arts, are a real fulfilling asset at these ages. The playful approach, integrating a motivating grade system, is oriented towards the acquisition of martial arts learning: young people and teenagers will acquire and control the implementation of motor and emotional commitments to succeed in simple actions. They will practice motor skills or simple cooperative exercises or games or controlled oppositions.

- Adults and adolescents (from 15 years old) practice martial arts, according to their choice: on the one hand, Self-Defense Krav-Maga in particular or on the other hand, Kickboxing / Muaythaï.

These defense arts, of international renown, are dispensed, with adapted protections, for everyone, by groups of levels and workshops, at the rhythm of each, allowing the individual development of a good number of benefits.

Psychically: they strengthen the mind, determination, improves the management of emotions, stress, self-confidence, concentration, relaxation skills, sense of decision-making, timing.

Physically: they strengthen health, being a complete physical activity promoting improvement in coordination and body control, tone and muscle building, flexibility, bone density and cardiovascular capacity.

Socially: they encourage respect for rules and ethical values. 

Objective: At the choice of "Leisure" or "Competition" practitioners

Recreational training, adapted to the rhythm of each person with multiple fulfilling benefits (see above), is prioritized within the Academy. However, practitioners who wish can be prepared and participate in competitions. Claude Pouget, a certified state pedagogue, also trained competitors (from the beginner level in the discipline) having won sports titles in:

- Krav-Maga: three world champions;
- Muaythaï: a vice world junior champion (I.F.M.A.);
- Kickboxing: champions and vice-champion of France
