Head Instructor: Grandmaster Will Maier
Will Maier's Modern Ninjutsu”™ (WMMN) is a evolutionary form of martial arts that focuses solely on self-protection with no sports application. It is an eclectic, innovative, efficient system of personal and family self-defense that is easy to learn and allows you to escape or defeat an assailant, in many cases, in as little as three moves.
Grandmaster Maier, 10th Degree Black Belt, developed his unique system based on his more than 40 years experience in the martial arts. He has been featured nationally on CBS, ABC, and NBC (“The Today Show”), internationally on CNN, and in Black Belt Magazine. His biography appears in various editions of “Who's Who”, and he was inducted into the International Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2002.
Maier also has a Masters Degree in Teaching and is a former educator. He brings all his experience to his teaching of his practical, enhanced form of martial arts. His students have ranged from ages 8-88.
Training in Will Maier's Modern Ninjutsu™ is conducted in a friendly, non-competitive atmosphere encouraging students to assist each other in learning. The small, intimate class structure promotes attention to each student's individual needs in a confidence-building environment. While training is realistic, it is safe and stimulating both physically and mentally. All students are taught to use the least amount of force necessary in any situation and to always try to avoid any violent altercation.
