Our Programs

With recent and justified concerns with Self Defense training that actually works, “reality based” attitude and action is nothing new for our staff. Consider our instructor’s background, education and EXPERIENCE, along with the success and satisfaction of our clients. Our programs are designed to offer real world knowledge, not just marketability.

From our Lil’ Dragons program for students ages 5-7 to our Adult Martial Arts programs, we have a class to fit your need.

With international affiliations and years of experience in personal development, Four Winds Martial Arts offers students in the Milwaukee area a rare and challenging environment.

Our Students

Four Winds students develop an honest respect for people as people, not just the pretense of respect and discipline. Four Winds students learn that all people deserve respect not just because of some belt they wear, meaning parents and elders. Students develop a healthy respect for each other because they are all there working as hard in every class.

Four Winds students learn to have an honest appreciation for their skills and abilities, avoiding a false sense of confidence in their abilities.

The curriculum at Four Winds presents a blend of many different skills. These are skills that we feel are important to a well-rounded Martial Artist, including boxing grappling, kicking, striking, practical and efficient movement.

Students will also learn about health and physical fitness through the Martial Arts. We teach students to train with methods that have been shown to have the best overall effect strength, flexibility, conditioning, with insights from sports medicine, injury rehabilitation and injury prevention.
