Welcome to the American Defensive Arts


Academy:

Dear Parents,
This letter is to congratulate your family for investing in your childs health and future success. When you
chose American Defensive Arts Academy as your martial arts school, you chose the finest combination of
fitness and personal development programs available today.
We want to help your child develop the skills and confidence to develop TRUE STRENGTH, not over others,
but over their own body and mind. Our curriculum was created to offer a challenging and rewarding
program that will help maximize physical and mental development.
As you may know, the martial arts have always taught values such as goal setting, self-esteem, persistence,
creating a positive attitude, self-confidence, self-discipline, as well as many others. In the past, these
principles have been taught haphazardly, and represented a small part of the curriculum. The difference
between this "traditional" type of teaching and the curriculum provided here is that we teach these values
with purpose. In other words, we teach the principles as an integral part of our program.
Your childs success is our primary goal. This is the reason we chose this style of mental curriculum. We
want them to be successful in every aspect of life.
There are many places that can teach one to score a point in a tournament. That is not the purpose of the
instructors of the American Defensive Arts Academy. We are here to help find what types of techniques will
help them avoid conflict all together. That means training in maintaining situational awareness as well
ways to negate an attack.
The closing part of our motto is Begin with the end in mind, or another way to put it, know where you
want to go. When your child starts something, make them visualize themselves successfully completing
the task. That is an essential part of martial arts training. They must believe that they can learn these
techniques, because they can! All it takes is confidence and willingness to stick with their commitment to
train sincerely.
We look forward to having a long-term relationship you. Please, if you ever have a question remember, our
door is always open. We are here to serve you.
Sincerely,
Master Christopher Folmar
Head Instructor

Senior Instructor Bios:

Master Christopher Folmar, Head Instructor, has his Sixth degree Black-Belt in American Karate (under Grandmaster J.
Pat Burleson Ft. Worth, Texas), Second-Degree Black-Belt in Tae Kwon Do (Grandmaster Seung Dong Richmond,
Virginia), First-Degree Black-Belt in Aikido (Sensei Bill Sosa Dallas, Texas.), and his Black-Belt in the art of Hapkido
(Grandmaster S. Yang Hurst, Texas). Master Folmar began practicing martial arts when he was seven years old
training in Ju-Jitsu with his father.
Master Folmar: I was not what you would call a naturally athletic child. Uncoordinated and out-of-shape, Martial Arts
training was very difficult for me. My asthma made it even more challenging. I am thankful to have had great
support and encouragement from my family, instructors, and fellow students as I continued my studies. I can
honestly say that every success I have had in my life comes from being able to apply what I have learned on the mat
in the outside world.
After receiving his MBA, Master Folmar worked for the American Heart Association developing fun ways to promote
heart-healthy programs for kids. Since then he has worked professionally on marketing programs for mobile
technology.
Robyn Folmar, instructor, is a Black Belt in American Karate with cross training in Kenpo karate. She has been
involved in the martial arts for over 15 years. After earning her degree in Journalism and Political Science she worked
for The Science Place in Dallas and then Kick-Start Chuck Norris's Foundation for establishing karate programs in
Texas schools for at-risk children.
Robyn Folmar: I have seen Karate absolutely change peoples lives. At Kick-Start, I saw disadvantaged kids learn
focus, discipline and personal integrity through Karate which they applied in and out of school with dramatic results.
The Karate classes also supplied a positive support network for these kids that encouraged their success. As adults,
we can find hundreds of excuses not to do something that we have always wanted to do. I strongly believe karate is
for everyone who has an interest; whatever your shape, size or age.
The Folmars founded the American Defensive Arts Academy in 2002 through the Keller Recreation Department.
Teaching the class at The Keller Pointe allows the instructors to devote 100% of their attention to the instruction of
the student rather than the constant maintenance and upkeep required with a stand-alone school. Without the
pressure of having to maintain certain numbers in order to stay in business, Master Folmar takes pride in
advancing students when they have proven that they are ready.
In short, the Folmars teach because educating others in the Martial Arts is their passion. Their main goal is not to
make a living, but rather to make good Martial Artists.
Mr. Oliver Martinez, Instructor and Impact weapon specialist, teaches the schools Black-Belt Club focusing on
weapon training with Kali sticks, bladed weapons, and Jo staves. Mr. Martinez holds 3rd-Degree Black Belts in both
American Karate and Aikido.
Mr. Clayton Johns, with over 40 years experience in the martial arts, brings a depth and breadth of experiences to the
school. Mr. Johns introduced Master Folmar to American Karate and tested Mrs. Folmar to Black Belt. Mr. Johns holds
a 4th-Degree Black Belt in American Karate and a Black Belt in Kenpo Karate.

Philosophy and Style:

The curriculum is a unique blend of both 'hard' and 'soft' martial arts styles, drawing from American Karate (kicks and
Punches) as well as Aikido and Ju-Jitsu. Focus is weighted heavily toward self-defense for real-life situations, rather
than tournament techniques. Forms (a set of prescribed moves simulating combat) and sparring are also a large part
of the system. Application of the curriculum emphasizes the five tenets of the martial arts: Integrity, Concentration,
Respect, Humility and Indomitable Spirit.
The American Defensive Arts Academy also stresses community spirit. After all we all need some place to go to
decompress from everyday life. The ADAA is a family-run business and we believe it shows. Many of us practice
together outside of class during the week to reinforce what we've learned in class.

What is American Karate?


American Karate is a way of life and a dynamic philosophy. That means that the Tenets and Principles learned in class
must be practiced in all areas of the students lives. The term Karate comes from the Japanese term Kara-te: Empty
Hand. There are many arts that fall under the Karate-family description, but American Karate is different in several
critical ways.
E Pluribus Unum: Out of many, One
The United States of America adopts the best elements from the heritage of the various peoples who have settled
here to make our country better. The same holds true for American Karate. The American in our name reflects that
spirit of openness and adaptation to any situation.
American Karate is the result of blending traditions and philosophies from several martial arts systems to provide a
systematic approach to self-defense conditioning for various ranges and circumstances. Tae Kwon Do provides a basis
for strong stances, blocks and kicks, as illustrated in our long-range techniques. Western Boxing (or Pugilism) is also
incorporated with hand, footwork, and body movement techniques for medium range situations. Judo and Aikido
throws and locks compliment the system by providing the short-range options and applications for multiple-opponent
scenarios.
When you choose to practice American Karate, you benefit in three ways:
Physically - You will improve your total body condition with increased aerobic capacity, improved flexibility and gains
in upper and lower body strength.
Mentally - You will improve your ability to focus on-task, gain self-confidence and develop self-control.
Philosophically - You will begin to bring your stronger body and mind together toward a state of Balance.

8)

Our School Values:

To be great in American Karate the student must also adhere to the Five Tenets of Martial Arts. These are not just
words we use in class. Without a strong value system as our foundation, martial artists would be no different than
thugs or bullies with fighting skills.

Integrity: Doing what is right, even if no one is looking.


Concentration: Keep your mind on what you are doing at that moment.
Respect: Treat everyone else like you want to be treated.
Humility: Remember there is always something else to learn.
Indomitable Spirit: Never give up!

Overview of the training techniques:

Basics (Ki-bon):
These are the fundamentals: Stances, Blocks, Punches, Strikes and Kicks. Strong development of these skills early in
your training is essential in order to progress to the more advance levels.
Yelling (Ki-Yah):
This develops your internal power, called Ki, to increase your energy and Warrior Spirit. It also can be used to
startle and frighten opponents.
Self-Defense (Ho-Shin-Sool)
This is the core of the training in American Karate. Students will learn to escape various attacks, such as grabs and
holds, by using an attackers force against them and targeting vulnerable areas of the body. Multiple responses to the
same attack are required for higher ranks, since no one technique will work for all martial artists in all situations.
Falling (Nac-Bup or U-keme)
Self-defense often starts after you have been attacked, so learning to fall reflexively when caught off guard is part of
our training. Proper use of falls and rolls also reduces the chance of injury during rigorous training.
Vital Points (Kup-So)
These are the points of the body that are most susceptible to pain, break or injury. Students learn where these points
on the body are, how to best exploit them on an opponent and protect their own.
Forms (Hyung or Kata)
These are the oldest ways in which martial arts were passed from Master to student. Forms are pre-arranged series
of attacks, blocks, counter-attacks and Strikes. They simulate combat from multiple directions and teach different
ways techniques can be linked together. It takes thousands of repetitions of a form for it truly to be learned and
understood by the student.
Sparring (Ja-Yoo-Dae-Ryon or Kumite)
While definitely not combat or self-defense, sparring plays an important role in American Karate training because it:

Improves
Improves
Improves
Promotes

endurance (or at least provides the motivation to work on cardio outside class)
timing (bags dont move around much, opponents do)
reflexes (bags dont hit back, opponents do)
respect for each other (dont want to hurt your partners)

The Five Principles of Martial Arts:


Body-Relationships
Balance
Extension
Blending
Mind-Control

These Five principles are central to martial arts training. Students will learn how to apply these principles in both
defensive and offensive techniques through carefully selected criteria at each belt level.
Walk the Walk:
It is not enough to just notice that these concepts exist or to recite them when asked for a belt examination. To really
learn the lessons of Karate is to see beyond the technique being demonstrated. At each belt level the student is
exposed to multiple offensive and defensive applications of the Principles. This means that as a student progresses
through the rank system, they are being exposed to different ways that these concepts can be used in self-defense
situations. Working together, the Instructor and student will work together to find the applications that work best for
each student.
10th Gup (White-Belt): Defensive BODY-RELATIONSHIPS
Move yourself outside of an attackers range-of-effectiveness
9th Gup (Yellow-Belt): Offensive BODY-RELATIONSHIPS
Move your attacker into your range-of-effectiveness
8th Gup (Gold-Belt): Defensive BALANCE
One must keep their own Balance to perform any art
7th Gup (Orange-Belt): Offensive BALANCE
Take your opponents Balance and they will be less able to attack
6th Gup (Green-Belt): Defensive EXTENSION
Project Ki energy to control all actions inside your personal space
5th Gup (Blue-Belt): Offensive EXTENSION
Extend Ki energy with attack through target for greater power
4th Gup (Purple-Belt): Defensive BLENDING
Do not directly meet an attackers strength
3rd Gup (Brown-Belt): Offensive BLENDING
Use an attackers force against them
2nd Gup (Red Belt): Defensive MIND-CONTROL
A calm mind is your most powerful defense
1st Gup (Red/Black-Belt): Offensive MIND-CONTROL
Destroy an attackers form and technique and their desire will follow

Class Etiquette:
Arrive a few minutes early to begin warming up before the session starts.
Your uniform and belt should be clean for each class.
No horseplay before, during, or after classes.
If late to class, raise your hand and wait until the instructor recognizes you and invites you onto the mat.
Bring safety equipment to every class. Some activities may require protective gear to participate.
Always bow to Black Belts when they enter the room.
Show respect to all students, regardless of their rank. We all wore White-Belts at some time.
Pay attention when the instructor is talking. You cant learn if you are not listening.
Roughhousing or horseplay is never permitted. Learning Karate is fun, but it is not a game.
During classes always refer to instructors and other students with formal salutations, such as Mr., Mrs., or Ms
or Master (5th-Degree Black-Belts and above only).
When the instructors ask you a question or ask you to do something, say Yes Sir/Maam! in a loud voice.
If you need to leave the mat for any reason during class, ask the instructor for permission to be dismissed.
Before getting back on the mat, wait for the instructor to recognize you and invite you back.
Always bow to your training partner before and after each training segment.
Raise your hand to ask a question during class. The instructor will come to you.

Student Binder:

Students are responsible for getting a 3 ring binder for holding their American Karate training information. The Binder
should be divided into the following sections:

Student Information: A title page and intro into why you want to learn American Karate
Class Overview: This introduction to training in American Karate
Instructor/Student Contact List
Training Logs: Record of conditioning work done outside of class
Belt Curriculum: What you are expected to present for each test
Belt Test Evaluations: Forms that you will receive after each test with comments from the board. They
must be kept so that the board can better see your progress
Personal Journal: Write down thoughts and feelings about training. Photos and art are great additions to
this section
Appendix 1: Six-Counts for each belt level
Appendix 2: Korean Terminology
Appendix 3: Japanese Terminology
Appendix 4: 8-Direction-Movement Diagram
Appendix 5: 8-Direction-Movement series
Appendix 6: Pattern Diagrams

You must have the binder ready for each test. Since we do not meet every day, the only way for the board to know
what you have done to further your skills and abilities outside of class is to maintain an up-to-date log.

14.1 Karate Uniforms:


White is the color for beginners, since it represents purity. Therefore, all beginner and intermediate students
(Green Belts and Below) must wear white uniforms when training in class or attending an ADAA event. Exceptions will
be made for special events, like T-Shirt Days during the summer months.
There is a special-recognition uniform that can be worn if a student joins the American Defensive Arts Academy
Black-Belt Club. The red training uniform and the red-trimmed testing uniform are optional for BBC members.
Blue-Belts and higher may wear a colored or patterned uniform.
The Black-Belt uniform is a traditional white uniform, but with special Black or dark Blue trim on the jacket and
sleeves to represent the knowledge that they have acquired. Only 1st-Degree Black Belts and higher may wear
this uniform - no exceptions.

Belt Testing:

In the beginning, as legend goes, everyone wore a White-Belt that got progressively darker due to sweat and dirt
until it was finally black.
In order to more effectively evaluate where a student is in their training, a system of ordered ranks was conceived.
There are 10 ranks or Gups in Korean on the way to Black Belt. Each rank was also assigned a color, which
signified a particular value or importance.

15.1 Why a Belt Test?


This is a school and examinations are part of any quality school. In order to gain any real confidence in your
technique, the student must practice it and then demonstrate it under circumstances outside of the comfort zone of
the classroom. Nearly all of the confidence thresholds achieved by our upper ranks came as a result of test
preparation and performance. It is a challenge that has to be met head-on and one that must be taken seriously.

15.2 Belt Test Fees:


Test fees are set on a progressive structure to reflect the increasing depth and breadth of material on which the
candidate will be evaluated. Students will receive a Certificate of Rank and a new belt at the successful completion of
the exam. Boards will be provided for the student on any test that requires breaking demonstrations. Testing fees
allow the school to maintain a high-quality testing environment in order to give the student the attention that they
deserve.

15.3 Testing etiquette:

Wear a clean and pressed WHITE uniform. No colored uniforms may be worn by testing candidates.
Have your Student Binder with you and ready for inspection by the testing board.
When your name is called, stand up and shout Yes, Sir/Maam! loudly, bow, and run (dont walk) to the
location instructed by the testing board.
When the instructors ask you a question or to do something, say very loudly Yes Sir/Maam!
When the board dismisses you, say very loudly, Thank you Sir/Maam, bow, and run (dont walk) back.
Do not leave a test until dismissed by the board, except for medical emergencies.

16)

Test Criteria:

The following sections summarize the new skills that will be tested for each belt level. This information is a guide to
help the student track progress and what needs to be practiced.
The general format of each belt test is to review forms, Six-Counts, and self-defenses, with other material reviewed as
necessary. The student should be prepared to show new forms, Six-Counts, self-defenses and other material, as well
as material learned earlier. On each testing date, the testing board will determine how much of the earlier material
will be reviewed.
The head instructor may revise these specific skills periodically. These periodic revisions may reflect a reorganization
of information to create a more logical progression of skills. It may reflect the inclusion of new material to better
illustrate the principles of karate. Whatever the reason, the desire is to better prepare the student. Check with the
instructors if questions arise.
In order to be cleared for testing students must receive colored skill-stripes as follows:

Green
Yellow
Red
White
Blue
Black

Falls/Rolls
8 Direction Movements
Self-Defense
Forms/Kata
Six-Counts

16.9. Red-Belt
Meaning of Belt Color: As the seed grows closer to the sun, its red-hot heat scorches the plant. Here, the student
learns that with knowledge comes responsibility. Red signifies danger. So is the student with Black-Belt technique,
but without Black-Belt wisdom, maturity, or sensitivity. "The dawn of a new day. The sun breaks through the
darkness." The previous day has ended giving way to a new dawn. The student must begin a new phase of training;
that of being a Black Belt.
Martial Arts Principle:
Controlling the Mind (Defensive) A calm mind is your most powerful weapon

16.11. 1st-Degree Black-Belt


Meaning of Belt Color: The Black-Belt signifies the darkness beyond the sun. Black is the opposite of white,
therefore signifying maturity and proficiency; impervious to darkness and fear. As the darkness we come from at birth,
so is the Black Belt born into a new world of wisdom. As he/she starts teaching others, so they are planting new
seeds, which will take root deep into the Art and blossom and grow through the ranks in a never-ending process of
self-growth, knowledge, and enlightenment.
