AniNIX Martial Arts is a small martial arts collective focusing on research-driven martial arts. Our core style is USHF HapKiDo, but we are influenced by HEMA, Razmafzar, Kali, Shaolin, Silat, JKD, BJJ, and many other systems. We are a research-driven group -- we encourage cross-training with other systems and will bring in new concepts regularly. The class is open to all experience levels, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religious or cultural identity, socioecomic status, or age (above 14), in Southcentral Wisconsin -- we will fit your training to your needs and goals.
Drop-ins are welcome, but registration is by far the cheapest route.
We want your training with our system to become a part of your life. This means that we provide access to a revision-controlled copy of our notes that all our students can download, keep, and contribute to. We're tired of the old era where how the system works is kept hidden from students and piecemealed out as a marketing ploy -- we want to be as trasparent as possible in how our program and our martial art function. Transparency keeps our instructors honest and our students engaged -- this means a better martial arts experience for everyone.
Our system is always growing. We are a United States HapKiDo Federation (USHF) school, and that gives us access to high-quality instructors and seminar material each year from across the US. We also maintain good relationships with other schools in our area -- we want our students to examine what they're learing and make sure that it works, and that means looking at different perspectives.
Everyone is welcome! Class attendance is not mandated and belt-testing is not required to train. As a courtesy, please inform the class of your absence or intended late arrival -- real-life comes first, and we're happy to work with your needs. We need to keep 10 people on the registered list for each session to reserve our space.
Our focus is also on what you will actually use. While we appreciate traditional and esoteric training for self-development, our weekly classes are focused on modern techniques and training methods so that you get the most out of your time. Our goal is to help create a community of prepared and healthy citizens, and we believe martial arts helps build that in a way no other activity can.
