Front Sight FAQ > Front Sight, Nevada > Martial Arts
How did you decide on the techniques you teach, and why?
For eight months during 2002, Front Sight auditioned the best Martial Artists and fighters from around the world. Front Sight's Range Masters and Martial Arts consultants reviewed every imaginable fighting technique. Front Sight chose only the techniques which are effective, simple, and easy to use under stress.
What style of martial arts do you teach?
Front Sight uses a hybrid of many different martial arts styles. We took the best techniques from various styles and incorporated them into a simple, effective fighting system.
Am I too old to attend these classes?
Are you too old to be assaulted? You're never to old to learn how to defend yourself or your loved ones.
What if I'm out of shape?
The courses are designed for the students to train at their own pace and still learn and retain the fundamental skills of self defense.
