Martial Arts

Jeet Kune Do-Thai Boxing Crosstraining (JTX) is an extremely effective and complete self-defense system developed by Pat Tray. This method of self protection is based on his personal experiences throughout his travels around the world, his martial arts experience, and his time with the U.S. Navy's SEA, AIR, LAND (SEAL) special operations units. JTX is designed to be easy to learn, and easy to teach. It is an aggressive and practical self-defense system designed to give you the ability to survive dangerous and/or potentially life threatening situations. JTX focuses on both the self-defense techniques and the physical attributes necessary to enable you to successfully defend yourself in a threatening situation.

The most practical and effective self-defense program in the entire DC metro area is taught at Trident Academy.

For a complete, progressive, aggressive, practical and effective self-defense curriculum, JTX is exactly what you are looking for.
