Hillsborough Family Martial Arts

Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai International

For over 30 years, HRC Fitness has been supplying family activities to our members in the heart of Hillsborough, New Jersey.  Serving the citizens of Somerset County, our local fitness and recreation center is host to Hillsborough Family Martial Arts. Perfect for all ages, the martial arts programs offered at our facility will not only advance your understanding of self-defense techniques, but also provide a fun and engaging workout in the process. With classes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido and Shito-Ryu Karate, Hillsborough Family Martial Arts provides a welcome environment to anyone interested in pursuing martial arts training.

Lessons In Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai

As a system of attack and defense, Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai employs all parts of the body to kick, punch, chop or perform other movements to defend oneself. In addition, Karate-Do helps students build character, cultivating them to become valued members of the community. Utilizing modern teaching methods, personalized instruction and a structured format, our instructors let students progress at their own pace, regardless of age or physical condition, in a small class environment. Plus, our lead karate instructors are certified students of Shihan Fumio Demura, an internationally recognized master of karate and head of Shito-Ryu Karate-Do Genbu-Kai International. Our classes for children introduce kids, ages 4 to 6 years, to the exciting world of martial arts and help them improve focus and concentration. Juniors, ages 7 to 12 years, experience age-appropriate, stimulating classes with quarterly belt testing, while our adult/teen lessons work with students of all skill levels.

Study Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

A martial art and combat sport, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu draws on body mechanics, including leverage and proper technique, to teach students how to defend themselves against larger opponents. This type of martial art focuses largely on ground-fighting maneuvers in addition to grappling techniques. Students will learn how to gain superior positioning over their adversary by applying chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations. Offering Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes for both children and adults, Hillsborough Family Martial Arts invites students of all ages to partake in this rewarding sport.

Training In Traditional Aikido

Open to students ages 5 years and older, the traditional Aikido program follows the same guidelines as the United States Aikido Federation (USAF). Encompassing smooth, balanced and coordinated movements, traditional Aikido takes place in a non-competitive atmosphere, fostering the training of mind, body and spirit and teaching students how to resolve conflicts in a nondisruptive manner. Over the course of this program, students will learn how to defend themselves against various attacks, such as kicks, punches, strikes, single- or two-hand grabs, chokes and multiple-person attacks, through blending, turning, pivoting, circling and spiraling techniques, redirecting an attacker’s energy in the reverse direction.
