"Master Joseph Martarano is one of our most intuitive instructors.

He is able to feel what a student needs in many cases and does it with little commentary.

His ability to grasp some of the more difficult movements and pass them on is excellent. I taught him for well over a decade and he was always willing and able to learn and teach..."

If you are looking for a self defense school with a caring and skilled instructor, the Self Defense Club in Kingston NY is one you will definitely want to visit.​"

Dr. David L. Rosenblum

Chiropractor, GC student

"I have attended 3 Guided Chaos Martial Arts Seminars with Master Joe Martarano and can not say enough good things about the opportunity to work with him and the quality of the facility. Master Joe is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to making his classes the best they can be rather than a profit-making opportunity. Guided Chaos training is different from many other systems - it is both very effective in real-life situations yet safe to learn and doable by those who are older or not physically gifted as you learn to fight "within your own body".

➤ John Smith

 

"If you want to learn a truly unique style of self defense unlike any you have known about or studied before that has been proven, then join us. If you are practiced in another style, this art will enhance and make whatever you are skilled in even more powerful. For those with no or little martial arts training, you will learn how what you already know and do everyday can become instrumental in your self defense and increase your confidence. Find out for yourself..."

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN:

 

1. How to flow and adapt with your attacker, blending your defense and offense simultaneously, spontaneously, and without pre-planned moves. Essentially you will learn to create your defense moment-by-moment, giving you what you need, when you need it, to survive and escape. And we start teaching you this from Day One--not after 20 years.



 

2. We teach the mastery of 5 principles of dynamic motion using unique drills--and not rigid techniques. These are Balance, Body Unity, Looseness and Sensitivity, culminating in the 5th principle: Total Freedom of Action and Adaptivity. No one else does this, or does it the way we do.

 

3. For beginners and those short on time, we teach simple, brutal, easy to learn methods based on proven World War II Close Quarters Combat taught to our soldiers in 8 hours to fight the Japanese in the jungles of the Pacific (who were all thought to be karate and judo masters). Unfortunately this is not what is being taught to cops and soldiers today. These methods have been enhanced with select Guided Chaos principles (hitting power and balance) and are effective against most attacks you're likely to encounter. You can then go on to learn the entire art of Guided Chaos which is much more advanced--yet make quicker progress than with most systems.



 

4. Groundfighting and Weapons defenses based on the forensic reality of true violence, not sportive grappling or delusional disarms that can make things far worse. These martial myths are hard to believe when shown for what they are, yet they comprise the majority of what is being taught in the biggest schools today.
