We are NOT

We are not cardio kickboxing

Cardio Kickboxing

We don’t believe in watering down fighting skill with fatiguing fitness drills.
If you want fitness I have a separate class for that.

We are not sport MMA


Sport fighting has rules, the street doesn’t.
You have heard of dirty boxing…
Well we are filthy MMA.

We are not traditional martial arts

Traditional Martial Arts

We are modern, progressive, and we will prepare you for how real fights happen on the mean streets.
No forms, belts, or uniforms here; just solid functional fighting skills.

What we ARE

Realistic Gun Disarms

Martial Arts

We take the most practical of all martial arts so that you can learn to:

Fight on your feet
Fight on the ground
Fight multiple attackers
Win against guns, knives, etc.
Be prepared for real-world violence
Safe Environment to Learn Martial Arts

Safe Environment

We don’t glove up and spar, beat you up, or make you feel stupid if you learn slower than you think you should.
We encourage you, support you, and coach you so you can become the best warrior that you can be.

We are cool people

Cool People
Like You

We aren’t meat heads, nerds… (ok wait we are those things) but we just are regular folk like you who want to help each other be the best fighters that we can be.

Not training to defend yourself is foolish,
but going to the wrong school is just as bad.

Not Preparing for Violence

You continue to walk around insecure
You feel humiliated at getting beat up or bullied
You feel regret for not preparing to defend yourself or your family

The Wrong School

Teaches you ineffective techniques
You get used as a punching bag for senior students
You waste precious time that could have been spent learning realistic martial arts

We believe you deserve to be a warrior

Meet Your Coach, Brian

I have spent my entire life studying and training in martial arts and self-defense to figure out what works and what doesn’t.

I’ve trained in everything you can probably think of from traditional martial arts to western boxing, Muay Thai, MMA, Brazilian Jujitsu, combative handgun, modernized Filipino stick and knife fighting, and more.

I’ve sparred with professional boxers, Muay Thai champions, UFC competitors, and Olympians in Judo and Tae Kwon Do. And I have worked with law enforcement, special forces, and martial arts legends.

What I have created for you is the realistic martial arts school that I always wanted. It teaches you the best in techniques, tactics, and mindset so you can become the best warrior that you can be.

What Real Students Are Saying

Selene Lynch

Brian is an exceptional instructor!

He is very down to earth and addresses your questions with concise advisement. From the get go, you are in a very comfortable atmosphere.
Brian sets up an environment where you are welcomed by him and all students and you don’t need to feel intimidated by rank.
You learn very quickly right away very useful skills and tools to survive in a variety of every day life situations (guns, knives, domestic, animals, bullies, ect.) without having to go through the traditional steps most defense classes make you do.

I knew I had found what I was looking for!

I searched for a JKD class for years but never found schools that were close to me so I tried other forms of martial arts classes such as mma, boxing and krav. I never attended more than a few classes until PCS. After the first class I knew I had found what I was looking for. Brian’s instruction is slow & fast, practical and able to be applied immediately.

Brian is involved in every aspect of training. There’s open discussion on techniques as well as real world situations and how we would handle them. 

James Hill

This is THE place if you’re looking for real self defense techniques!

After trying out several martial arts looking for one that made the most sense for real world protection, I found PCS to be the perfect combination of usable techniques covering a variety of self defense situations. The instruction is delivered in a fun, casual environment that’s rounded out with knowledgeable students of varied experience. In other words, it’s perfect for newcomers and even fills in the gaps of previously learned martial arts techniques if you know them. Highly recommend this training “gem” in Aurora!

Jim Fox

You are Worth EVERY PENNY!

I am not influenced easily.   I am however very impressed with your approach to both self defense and also body health. For five years, my back always felt tight and sore. Doctors advised back surgery.  Brian took interest in my back pain and worked with me on mobility drills targeting my lower back. I AM PAIN FREE!  I did not expect my chronic pain to go away, but it did
Plus, my confidence is up for self defense.
Brian helps his students grow not just in martial arts, but also in having the ability to use critical thinking skills in any and I mean any situation.

Ways to Train

Private Training

Safe Environment to Learn Martial Arts

We have 2 types of private training to meet your specific goals.

Small Group Classes

We are cool people

Our small group Jeet Kune Do classes focus on turning you into a complete fighter.

Now is the time to get serious about living your ideals. How long can you afford to put off who you really want to be? Your nobler self cannot wait any longer.

Put your principles into practice – now. Stop the excuses and the procrastination. This is your life! You aren’t a child anymore. The sooner you set yourself to your spiritual program, the happier you will be. The longer you wait, the more you’ll be vulnerable to mediocrity and feel filled with shame and regret, because you know you are capable of better.

From this instant on, vow to stop disappointing yourself. Separate yourself from the mob. Decide to be extraordinary and do what you need to do – now.
