This system teaches a non-forceful self-defense suitable for both men and women equally. The stronger and forceful opponent is subdued predominantly with higher levels of combative skills that are receptive with a determined quality of dexterity and strength. The integration of health and self-defense are inseparable.
The AIMA's head instructor Sifu Aldo Gentile is one of only a few Kung-fu teachers who teach the way of the old school of kung-fu as it was originally intended to be taught (A Non Style Specific System that develops your Own Kung-Fu from the special methods, principles and philosophical concepts of the Old School Kung Fu system).
Similar to most of the popular Internal Martial Art Styles of Kung-Fu like Tai Chi Chuan, Hsing-I Chuan and Pa-Kua Chang, this No Name, No Style Specific, Old School Internal Kung-Fu system incorporates all of Natures Universal Philosophical Concepts discovered over 5000 years ago by the Mountain Men of China such as: Wu Chi (Nothingness), Yin & Yang, Wu Hsing (5 Element Theory) and Pa Kua (8 Changes).
Learn how to integrate each concept to understand the variations and options available in developing your own Kung-Fu and how all of the Offensive (Strikes, Locks and Throws) and Defensive (Neutralise, Receiving and Evasion and more), combative categories relate with each of the concepts as the underlying training methods and principles.
When Kung-fu came into existence over 5000 years ago in the Tien Sarn Mountains NW China, its original intention was to develop the individual, which meant that each individual, only after learning all the fundamentals and foundations of the "Old School KUNG-FU System", as a dedicated practitioner, would be able to develop their "Own Kung-Fu Style".
This is a rare commodity in the Martial Arts circle or industry, nearly all the martial art systems are specific styles or systems teaching specific techniques or set patterns based on previous systems and lineage from certain masters who are passing on their styles or ancestry system.
The master's program is an advanced curriculum for students that have completed their black sash program. It is an extensive program which explores the subtleties and deeper aspects of the "8 Ultimate Fist Methods". The Concepts, philosophy and Science all come together as one complete system with an invaluable source of knowledge and skill that can assist you in many ways having a lifelong lasting effect. The ultimate goal is to complete the curriculum become a Sifu that is capable of understanding and continuing to refine their own Kung Fu as a true Martial/Life Art.
Each student may complete each Module of the 8 Ultimates within 1 to 3 years but this is just a guide and each student within the Masters Program will have different time frames and outcomes. The Master's curriculum is extremely flexible so as to accommodate the individual's development into a Master's degree, to become a Master, each student must thoroughly understand the principles and concepts of our system, which could vary from student to student. In the old school of "Internal" systems, internalising the system to your own self-understanding is to develop your own Kung Fu, being a Master. Hence the Kung-fu saying "One must master themselves before mastering others"!
