SPOTLIGHT: PRECISION MARTIAL ARTS
Krav Maga experience matters
Since 2003 Precision Martial Arts of Navarre has provided the best in real self-defense, and during those 17 years has become well-known and respected. The backbone of their success, as the oldest Martial Arts school in Navarre, is the strength of their staff and instructors.
The management of Precision Martial Arts is by the owners, and Navarre residents, Janet and Calvin Longton. Janet’s background as a Los Angeles advertising executive and previous business owner has been significant to the school’s longevity. She is also a volunteer costume designer at Pensacola Little Theatre.
As the martial arts industry continues to see often very capable and skilled martial artists fail at running a successful school due to lack of business experience, Precision Martial Arts is the exception. It took off quick with several full classes their first week and nearly 100 students in their first 3 months due to Janet’s marketing strategies.
The more visible and obvious key to Precision Martial Arts success and longevity is the staff, including owner and chief instructor Calvin Longton. Calvin had an unusually interesting military career. He served 13 year in the Marine Corps infantry and Force Recon, four years in the Army Special Forces (Green Beret) and 7 years in Air Force Combat Control in a career spanning 24 years. He is a 6th degree black belt in Korean Hapkido, black belt in Taekwondo, a black belt in kickboxing, a Certified Krav Maga instructor by the Wingate institute in Israel and has practiced many other martial arts systems including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Uechi Ryu Karate, Shaolin Kung Fu, Wing Chun Kung Fu, Judo, and Muay Thai. Calvin also teaches military Combatives to U.S. Military special operations units as a contractor and teaches SRC Swat Team.
Wayne Tilman is a senior Krav Maga instructor. He is a Former Army infantry and a U.S.A.F. retired special operations crew chief. He is a Krav Maga Master Instructor, Certified Tactical Combatives Instructor, Certified Executive Protection Operator, and has background in various knife fighting systems and active shooter response. Wayne is Precision Martial Art’s primary Krav Maga instructor when Calvin is not available.
Todd Martinson is a retired U.S.A.F. Intelligence Imagery Analyst. He is a Krav Maga Master Instructor, black belt Hapkido, black belt Taekwondo, Certified Tactical Combatives Instructor, and has background in stick fighting, knife fighting and submission grappling. Todd is primary instructor to the youth programs.
What is Krav Maga and what makes Precision Martial Arts Krav Maga program different? Krav Maga is Israel’s military close combat system. It is what is taught to the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF). Civilian Krav Maga uses the same training approach and many of the same skills and methods of military Krav Maga but is modified to address the types of situations and threats civilians are more likely to face. The training is all practical application. You learn what to do to protect yourself against armed and unarmed attacks then drill it and practice it so that you get good at it fast.
Precision Martial Arts was the first to bring Krav Maga and the first Wingate Institute Certified Krav Maga instructor to the Panhandle. Krav Maga training is tough. Not everyone who wants to have the ability to defend themselves shows up their first day of training as a “fitness machine.” Precision Martial Art’s experienced instructors know how to tailor the training so that you reach your potential and develop the ability to protect yourself and your loved ones fast.
“Our passion is to our students. No matter what age, our goal is to help them achieve their goals- to ensure that they develop real skill and ability to protect themselves. Or, if their primary goal is to lose weight or get fit, we’ll do our best to make sure that happens too- while they are developing real skill and ability to protect themselves!”
