Self Defense and More:

Mr. Williams  teaches a complete system of Chinese Martial Arts based in strong traditions, but analyzed and modernized for contemporary practical solutions.  The art is taught as a self-improvement program, not  tournament-oriented sport.  There is equal emphasis on self-defense and self-control. The chin na (literally “to seize and control”) techniques are perfect for law enforcement, military and security applications. 

Relieve stress, gain more energy, and become more confident.  The elements of Northern Shao Lin, Hung Gar and Five Animal are represented. So, too, are the internal elements of Tai Chi, Hsing-I and Ba Gua. Each class starts with Chi Kung (literally: work of the "Chi" or "internal energy") exercises dating back 1,500 years for your fitness, longevity, and healing.  

 Additionally, history, philosophy and cultural aspects of the martial arts are also explored in this multi-faceted program. Study the most formidable defensive tactics ever devised born of necessity, nurtured by monks, and proven by warriors and the oppressed alike.

Mr. Williams, Founder and President of ASI, has over 50 years experience in the martial arts.  As well as the above listed arts, he has studied Japanese Goju Ryu Karate, American Kenpo, Fu Jow Pai, Escrima and other arts.  He has trained elite military forces, as well as  children in daycare centers.  Executive Protection Details include celebrities, politicians and other government entities, corporate leaders, and witnesses. 

Recently, Mr. Williams has created a simple-but-effective program of “personal safety” for Medical professionals as required by law. Also, his experience in Hospital Security has made him popular training hospital security personnel. He continues to research and teach and is often sought for his knowledge of history, philosophy and technical expertise.
