What we teach
Knife and Edge Weapons
This is a practical application of self defense based on real life scenario and is derived by Master Cosmo Zimik along with other masters from different martial arts backgrounds of Thang- Ta, Burmese Thaing, Aikido, and Shaolin KungFu.
Thaing is a Burmese term used to classify the traditional martial systems of Myanmar.
Practical Self Defense (Qin Na)
Quin Na is the set of joint lock techniques used in martial arts to control or lock an opponent's joints or muscles/tendons so he cannot move, thus neutralizing the opponent's fighting ability. Our Qinna is derived from Burmese Thaing, Kung Fu, and different other Martial arts to make it more simple, direct and practical use for our daily applications including self defense and combat situations.

We have been with EHC for 6 years. When we started my grandson was shy and not tapping his full potential. Training here has increased his concentration, respect, confidence, and improved his performance in school. This training has helped him so much! - Dee A.
