FIST OF FURY of Sifu Mike F. Kinsey

Sifu Mike is friendly but a serious instructor and practitioner of his martial art named ESAELD. His hand speed is amazingly quick and to the anatomy of the target he chooses to strike with deadly precision. His movements flow like water but his physical strikes whether it be his hands, elbows, feet, knees or or head; to name a few is more deadlier than the Black Mamba snake venom. He is proficient in his instruction to his students no matter if it's the senior or yellow belt like me. He has the patience and a cornucopia of marital arts knowledge and legal self defense knowledge to make sure we all get the Technics correct at all times. I regard Sifu Mike as my only marital arts instructor for life God willing and a real friend who cares about me and his students.

If your advance student i. e. Black Belt, MMA or whatever martial arts you've practice; Sifu Mike instruction will show you something you didn't know for self defense the streets. ...the "real" world. This ESALED self defense system is NOT for show or for tournaments. This marital arts is for street survival that well save your life when practice by the student or a daily basis. Siful Mike makes learning his ESALED martial arts fun and we all have BLAST!

Practical, reality based self-defense with expert instruction

Joining the ESAELD martial arts club is one of the best things I've ever done. Having researched and participated in various martial arts over the years (BJJ, Boxing, and Wing Chun Kung Fu), I've encountered good gyms as well as gyms that existed for the wrong reasons. Well, I can honestly say that Sifu Mike's ESAELD martial arts club is at the top of the food chain. This place is the antithesis of a McDojo with over-inflated monthly dues and expensive mandatory monthly belt testing or a cardio-kickboxing class that deceives its members into thinking they can really fight.

On the contrary, Sifu Mike teaches reality-based, practical self-defense for the street in a controlled and supportive environment with small class sizes (usually around 4 to 7 students per class). With his vast martial arts experience, he could easily charge the same exorbitant rates of most gyms. However, Sifu Mike truly loves teaching, and as a result, only charges a nominal $30 per month. You can't even take three group lessons/classes at many gyms for that price!

In addition, there is a great group of students here with varying levels of martial arts experience and styles. Despite our differences, all students share the common desire to study practical "real world" self-defense, support the other club members, and to improve with each class.

So if you live anywhere near Gilbert, Arizona and are looking for the best martial arts value around, you owe it to yourself to contact Sifu Mike. You won't regret it!

This Reality based ESAELD- Panuntukan/Jeet Kune Do Concepts training will leave you secure in knowing true Fighting Skills. I Know I am now for the first time in all my years of training! I have been fortunate enough to have been trained by Sifu Mike since early 2013.

In this short time I have been able to utilize all the ranges of combat with complete flowing of techniques. Reacting to and controlling from an endless arsenal like Silat, Muay Thai, Panantukan, Wing Chun, Kali, Boxing and Jui Jutsu. Bring your great attitude to join with this great group of like minded people. Your past techniques or no techniques at all will be sharpened by Sifu Mike and you will the better person for it!

If you really want to learn how to fight. ..really fight. ...come join us and see what you can do. Can't say enough about this training group. ...its the best.

You have found and I cannot speak more highly of, the original dojo for E. S. A. E. L. D. Fighting Concepts in Az! The newest, powerful, practical plan is here in Sifu Mike Kensey's 'Realistic' Street fighting system. You will only learn it in Gilbert, AZ with Sifu Mike! We practice, plan and explore fighting concepts that are based and inspired by JKD/ Pilipino Eskrima and 'close range'-Panuntukin-Silat/ American Boxing/ Maui Tai fighting/ Chinese Wing Chun/ Brazilian Jujitsu and other mixed martial arts flowing forms that work for the street and if you chose. .. much more. Open to all levels of fighting experiences and training. So I say-contact Sifu Mike and begin your personal journey into the 'ESAELD' evolution of mixed martial arts for everyday living. Hope to see you in our next class. ..
