Rising Phoenix Martial Arts

Jeet Kune Do – The Philosophy That Guides The Training

With over 40 years of experience, Jeff Westfall has developed himself into one of the finest instructors around.  Jeff has been serving the Evansville, IN community since 1975.  His passion for the arts fostered a love of learning and great reverence for the opportunity to teach others.  This desire to see each student get what they can from the arts is not limited to just his instruction.  He often opens his doors to people like Dan Inosanto, one of the most significant people in martial arts history, Surachi Sirisute, the man responsible for popularizing Muay Thai Boxing in the Unites States, and Marcello C. Monteiro of Monteiro Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to train him and his students.  At Rising Phoenix Martial Arts Academy you can choose from a variety of systems of martial arts which compliment and feed off of each other in all aspects of self-defense.  From self-defense to physical fitness, once you become a student, this 4000 sq. ft. facility and all of its equipment is available for your personal growth.

The environment is both serious and fun.  During class it would not be unusual to learn some history, learn about different dialects of language used in foreign countries or to be reminded that when training with a staff it is very important not to get a staff infection.  Did I mention references to Star Trek and comic books?  This is a house of well trained veterans, law enforcement, and nerds.

All are welcome so visit Rising Phoenix Martial Arts for more detailed information and class schedule.
