 The Northern Crane Martial Arts Association has been specializing since 1986 in teaching non-competitive survival fighting skills that have been handed down for centuries from teacher to student and that can be utilized by anyone in any self-defense situation. We teach these skills in an intellectually stimulating, pleasant and friendly environment.

The Northern Crane Martial Arts Association was established for the purpose of exploring, researching and training in the ancient ways of armed and unarmed close quarters hand to hand combat. This website is this association's only presentation to the general public. We do not advertise or promote our organization in any other way. This is preferable to us since we are only interested in considering serious candidates for acceptance into this association. The curriculum of this association includes training in weapons (ancient and modern), striking, kicking, grappling, pressure point manipulation, ground-fighting and all other survival techniques proven to be effective.

The core of the curriculum is primarily based on: Matsumura Seito Shorinryu Hakutsuru Karatejutsu & Kobujutsu. However, aspects of Kodenkan Danzanryu Kenpojujitsu,  Yamane Ryu Kenjutsu , Modern Arnis, Yang Taijiquan and western boxing are also part of the curriculum.

The curriculum of this association is not suitable for participants younger than adolescence. Northern Crane does not accept applicants under the age of twelve. 

"To be a pacifist is to be a man of peace. To truly be one you must first be able to defend yourself. Then you have a choice you can make: To fight or not to fight. If you cannot defend yourself, you do not have that choice to make. You are merely helpless.
