ASSAULTS DS is a style of WORLD Martial Arts in Olympia WA and is an acronym for:
Apply - Stopping - Strike - Attacks - Under - Life - Threatening - Situations
The dangerous truth about using sport martial arts for self defense.
- Sport style fighters spend countless hours conditioning themselves to strike legal targets and look for legal locks and holds. Attackers do not care about your Dojo skills and will cheat at any given moment to gain the upper hand. We must have a system that focuses on Survival, not winning a fair fight.
- When is the last time you saw a weapon being used in the ring.
Go beyond the emergency techniques of Krav Maga to defend against the highly skilled. Techniques can fail and you should never assume an attacker is unskilled.

When our lives depend on it, we cannot have a system that relies on what might work, we must train and know what will work.
SURE ANYONE CAN CHEAT, BUT WE MAKE IT AN ART FORM!
If your Fighting a Fair Fight, you Better be Getting Paid
This is a great place to learn self defense! The instructor and his family are amazing! I've learned so much in just the short time that I've been coming here! If you want to learn to defend yourself in any situation then come here!
Gregg Worked with Soldiers in my unit and taught them the essential skills they needed to enhance their effectiveness during their combat deployment in the Middle East. The techniques he taught were simple to learn and devastating when employed.

""SIMPLY THE BEST""
The most applicable defense training that I have experienced. The Air Force needs you to come to our school to demonstrate the effectiveness of these disciplines and the ineffectiveness of our current systems.

I'd like to start by saying Gregg is a genius. He is extremely helpful and the way he teaches and trains you is very effective and fun. The techniques and attributes are quick to learn if you focus and it is very satisfying. Shamane Alexandria
My name is Andrew L, .... I wanted to let you know how valuable the skills I learned under your instruction are. ..... The skills I learned are brilliantly practical.......I have tried Tae Kwon Do and Aikido.........Shotokan Karate.......none of them offer anything nearly as practical as the art you teach. Your class really is a unique opportunity to learn amazing things, I see that more clearly now. I am glad that I was able to find such a great place so close to home.
"After 28 plus years in Law Enforcement this style of UDT is what should be taught to all the recruits who enter Law Enforcement. Enjoyed this training a lot, Rangers Lead the Way Hooah!

ASSAULTS has delivered a much needed approach to self-defense. Being an infantryman with multiple deployments; ADS has allowed me the ability to progress my soldiers understanding of self-preservation to the level that even our current hand to hand defense training does not address. By instilling the mentality ADS teaches, you begin to see new approaches to not being involved in a fight to begin with, however when you must resort to violence to survive, it ensures you see every advantage, every option, and gives you the skills, knowledge, and training necessary to end the fight as quickly as possible in your favor.
The skills I've learned in the short time I've been attending ADS have quickly transitioned into my daily and military life. I have incorporated many techniques into my everyday training regimen with my soldiers and I have seen a marked improvement from our old combatives styles.

Having lived in Japan for over six years where I observed various martial arts disciplines and training approaches, it has been a privilege to enroll my son in World Martial Arts where he has learned so much over the past 1 1/2 years. The highly-qualified, talented, internationally certified and endorsed Chief Instructor, Mr. Gregg Loney, his wife Michelle and the other instructors are among the best in the nation. Their martial arts training program is innovative, high-caliber and takes it to the next level by consistently demonstrating and teaching: Honor, Integrity, Respect, Courage, Patriotism, Compassion, Humility, Focus, Self-Control and Commitment. As with the USAF SERE Program, other military branches, law enforcement agencies and many satisfied students and parents over the years, I highly recommend World Martial Arts to all prospective students and organizations.

Professional, not a wasted minute.
16 years in Military, 2 tours w/Spec Ops- This was the best self defense course I’ve taken.

I wanted to express my gratitude and deep appreciation for your hard work and dedication to teaching and passing down this wonderful and beautiful art. You AND your wife. What you guys teach is a vital skill set in this world today. You welcomed me with open arms and showed me nothing but support and love without judgement and I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. You don't find that much in society these days. Especially a guy like me. Lol.
You broadened my skill set, and taught me not only confidence and how to protect my loved ones and myself, but you taught me discipline, poise, and to think outside the box. You opened my eyes to a whole new world and this beautiful art form and sparked my interest and craving to learn more. Taught me that you can never learn enough. To never set limitations and to always push myself to keep my mind open and to pay even closer attention to detail. Fundamentals.
What y'all do is very important and y'all are a special breed of people. Thank you so much for being there for me to talk to when I needed, for being my mentor, my instructor, and most importantly, a good friend. Those are few and far between. You're an innovator, a gentleman, and a scholar. I could never put into words how much I appreciate y'alls hard work.
Take care of yourself and know that if you ever need anything, I'm only a phone call and plane ride away. I got your 6 through whatever.
Sincerely and Humbly,
