Get Fit, Feel Great, and Learn Self Defense Moves That Could Save Your Life.

...Plus Have a TON of Fun Doing It!

First, A Note From Our Instructor:

Dear Friend,

Hi, my name is Chris Lee, owner of YI'S Martial Arts Fitness Academy in Wood River, IL. We want a lot of things in life. Time with friends and loved ones. Successful careers that make us feel worth something. The chance to live a full life with memories that are truly cherished. But for many, all that is wiped away in the blink of an eye.

As much as we’d like to think the world is a safe and happy place… a quick removal of those rose colored glasses will give you the REALITY of the perilous times we live in today.

The SHOCKING Reality Of Today.

It’s just plain FACT that thirty percent of us will lose a loved one to homicide, suicide, or an accident. That is one in three. To make it worse… 69% of us will suffer some significant trauma in our lifetime – these are external accidents and hazards alone, NOT including heart disease, cancer and every other catastrophic illness.

Think I’m bluffing… Read below.

  • Drunk drivers shamelessly litter the roads and cause 40% of all traffic deaths. Last year alone, there were 1,626 deaths JUST in California due to drunk drivers. But hold on…

  • A recent Gallup poll reported that we’re more worried about Road Rage than drunk driving. And for reason, because according to a study published by the American Automobile Association (AAA), 37% of road rage drivers used firearms against another driver, 28% used other weapons, and 35% used their car as a weapon against another driver. And the numbers continue to increase.

  • Think help is around the corner? THINK AGAIN! A dreadful situation threatens you or your family’s lives… so you call 911… only to discover it’s busy and you have to deal with the situation ALL BY YOURSELF.

  • Lack of Perseverance

    We’re all guilty of quitting when things start to get challenging. But in our classes, you’ll be motivated by instructors who know exactly what you need. They’ll drive you to reach deep within yourself and help you create an unwavering perseverance that will benefit you for the rest of your life. 

  • Due to overcrowded prisons, many criminals who were supposed to serve 5-10 years are back out on the streets in only 6 months doing what they do best… victimizing innocent people. But even more notable is the shameful fact that 15 out of 16 rapists NEVER spend a day in jail.

  • The United States has one of the highest fire death rates of any major industrialized country. Fires kill on average 4,500 people a year, more than all natural disasters combined. Another 26,5000 are injured.

  • The United States has the world’s highest rape rate of countries that publish statistics. There are 78 rapes each hour, 1872 rapes each day, 56,160 rapes each month and 683,280 rapes each year. Sadly, one out of three American women will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime

  • Kids are maliciously stolen less than 5-feet from their parents. Don’t believe it… just watch the news for one week and you’ll stop, gasp, and say, “Oh, my God!”

  • Did you watch the civil unrest that occurred in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD, what would you do if a angry crowd suddenly turned on you. Would you be willing to and even able to defend yourself in that situation????

  • What if you were driving along and the road was blocked with protesters, do you have 911 on SPEED DIAL and a back up plan above your *VISOR and some handy * protester deterrent to spray on some punks!!!

  • Is it really safe to walk around in your own neighborhood? Let’s take a look. Stray and/or untrained dogs aggressively maul or take the lives of children and adults every day.


But There's Hope!

We've specifically designed our college session to help you break through to new levels of health and happiness. You'll be able to work through your daily challenges with strength, focus, and poise (even if you're never "attacked").

A Sprinkle Of Hope

  • Here’s the problem in life. There’s no warning music like in the movies. In real life things fast that you don’t realize it until it’s too late. But it can be different for you because I have a talent that I am going to share with you.

  • A talent that’ll allow you to be safe in the midst of all the chaos. A talent that I turned into what I call

    my “Courageous Combat Street Self Defense System.” Listen, most people have the misconception that

    martial arts is just for fending off a rapist or “kicking butt.” But… My “Courageous Martial Arts System” is

    different. It’s a proven system that externally looks like martial arts BUT internally empowers you when facing ANY of life’s fearful situations like those listed above. My system is so successful that students tell me they feel like they’re living life to the fullest, ready to handle even the scariest of

  • Listen, it’s really complicated to explain in just a few paragraphs here. You’ll have to experience it yourself to really know, but let me attempt to summarize how my “Reality Based Scenario Self Defense System” works.

  • You see, many people sign up at what I call “fast food” karate schools thinking it’s the answer to safety. But just learning to kick and punch is NOT the

  • You don’t get confidence from just kicking and punching… you get confidence and become starting from the inside. And trust me, you don’t have 8 years to train to become a black belt, guessing the whole time if what you’re learning what will REALLY keep you or your family safe.

  • Most schools don’t even teach the LIFE SAVING SKILLS you need like RIGHT NOW, not 3-4yrs or even 8yrs if your talking BJJ/Submission Grappling from now!!! We teach you REAL WORLD SELF DEFENSE in a 10 WEEK POLICE ACADEMY SETTING so you have the tools and mindset to prepare yourself for TODAY HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT!!!

Sounds Great...But How?

Class Reviews from Real Students

We Think It's Great, But What About Our Regular Members?

I was attacked a few years ago and told myself NEVER AGAIN.  Chris’s class gave me the confidence to stop being afraid and start living.  I love the structure of the classes and his patience.

Our Classes Blend Fitness with Self Defense

And That's Important

The reality is that you can't really separate the two. If you want to be able to defend yourself (and you do!), then you need to be in good shape. Now, you do NOT have to be in good shape to start! That's what we do - help normal people like you improve themselves everyday.

A "Group Sport"

With An Individual Focus

You'll get to interact and work with other people who share your same goals and challenges, but you won't be compared to them. This isn't high school gym class - there's no "pecking order". It's just a group of people working hard to achieve the things they never thought they were capable of. And you belong with them. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Will I get hit/get hurt?
Show +

You all wear regular street clothes in the training, and you have to have a signed doctor/physician release if you have any injuries like back, knee, etc... it is pretty demanding and intense, like a Krav Maga workout since we use a lot of Krav Maga drills.

How often do I need to come to class and when are your classes?
Show +

Our Self Defense Program is not really a set schedule of classes, it is more like a College Session.  Please go to the next page to find out more about it.

I haven't been active in years. Do I need to do anything before enrolling?
Show +

No. Although we definitely suggest maintaining an active lifestyle, if you haven't exercised in years, our beginner classes are perfect for you. We specifically focus that class on helping students not only learn the basic foundations of martial arts, but on building basic physical endurance, strength and flexibility. Before you know it, you'll be looking and feeling fantastic.

Can I try it before I sign up?
Show +

We do a 10 Week Police Academy Style of training. We do Pre-Registration before the November 10th deadline, you can take the Free Orientation.

Once that is over we will do another 10 week session sometime in Feb of next year, so you can be put on the mailing list for the next session to start.
