EDGE Philosophy

Martial Arts is a never ending road, a source of continuous growth and awareness. From white belt to black belt, student to master, regardless of what an extraordinary fighter or instructor you may develop into, you must never cease to be a student if you hope to inherit all that martial arts has to offer. Do not allow yourself to stop learning. Never believe that you have acquired so much knowledge as to be closed minded to new ideas. As a wise man once said, “martial artist’s should be constantly involved in a process of research that never crystallizes its findings into a finished product”. The definitive reward of martial arts training is immensely greater than an attractive black belt, a thriving academy, a great reputation or any competition victory. It is the fulfillment of knowing that the search for perfection is never ending and that the lessons learned will transform you into a much stronger person. At The EDGE, as well as in life, the path to greatness is long and arduous and full of obstacles. Just remember, discipline weighs ounces, regret weighs tons.

At the EDGE our focus is on practical training and not pagentry. In the modern world where the expectations and desire for quick fixes and the belief that fad workouts are the key to success – it is more necessary than ever to have an effective and efficient training program developed and taught by experienced individuals with the highest integrity and ideals. The difference between the top of the medal stand and sitting in the stands watching is due to one simple reason: Great Preparation The difference between being a victim of an aggressive attack and surviving one is due to one simple reason: Great Preparation.

"In the real world of self defense and sport fighting, pagentry is pretty but proven is priceless"
Richard Raciti,AKA The EDGE
