The philosophy behind Zarpas Training involves preparing the body, mind, and soul to be ready for anything life throws at you. The beginning phase of the program deals with building foundation strength, both mental and physical. This provides the physiological and neural adaptations necessary to get the body ready to workout. The second phase deals with more dynamic and explosive movements. This is where the fun starts. One of the goals is to find new forms of physical self-expression, that will spark the passion for play that we are born with. Many of the exercises have been adapted from various forms of martial arts, so you will learn to defend yourself and your loved ones. This in turn builds confidence and self-discipline which strengthens the spirit.
