MacFarland founded Eastgate Martial Arts Club in 2002.
The concept was to teach traditional Martial Arts in a way that focuses
self defense and the principle of constant improvement.
Martial Artists train to be prepared for whatever life gives them.
The underlying principles of Discipline, Respect and Honor are always central to
martial arts training.
To Whom Much is Given Much is Expected! With this as a
central concept for our teaching, Eastgate Martial Arts Club students are held to
higher standards both on the gym floor and everywhere else in their lives.
Master MacFarland has created a training curriculum that teaches the individual the Martial Art. The focus is to take what the student has and make them
effective Martial Artists. Students from 5 to 83 train to be the best that
they can be.
He has developed programs for the Martial Arts and the
philosophies behind these programs.
Martial Arts Conditioning (MAC)
Relative Position, Attack,
Martial Arts System
This strategy centers on the position in which your opponent is
engaged and the distance that you are from your opponent.
Using this strategy will allow one to maintain a superior strategic
position and enable one to deploy the appropriate attack to the best
Martial Arts Conditioning is a program that teaches
basic martial art techniques and uses them in a workout format to allow
participants to get a workout while they develop basic techniques that
could serve them well in a self-defense situation.
This is very different from typical self-defense
courses in that it focuses on the mental as well as the physical aspects
Take Control (of yourself), Evaluate
Control (of the situation), Escalate
Expectationless is one of the philosophies that is taught at
Eastgate Martial Arts Club. As soon as you expect
something to happen, life will give you a challenge that you did not anticipate
- therefore one must exist in the now.
The past is gone we can not dwell on it -
we MUST LEARN from it.
The future is yet to be determined and while we can
not predict it -
we MUST BE PREPARED for it
