Coach Melvin teaches a very unique system of self-defense unlike any other martial arts system---against an unprovoked, vicious dog attack. Read below for important information:

A trendsetter in the martial arts, Coach Melvin (aka Ma Yo-Hua), developed his martial arts expertise and methods after nearly forty years of training under various martial arts masters. He began in August 1968 with Tang Soo Do Karate under Sensei Ki Wang Kim. Later, he began training in the Chinese style arts under Preying Mantis and Hung Ga master, Josephus Colvin; then with Jow-Ga (Southern Tiger-style) master Hoy Lee. After several years, Coach Melvin moved to California to began studies at the Wen Wu School of Martial Arts under Chiang Yun-Chung; then with Jiang Hao-Quan; after that with the late Lin Cao Zhen; and continuing with Liang Qiang-Ya, among others.

He has combined techniques from many martial art systems and styles into a truly innovative system of self-defense, dubbed Heaven's Palm Boxing. With a college background in computer science, and music, he applies computational logic and rhythmic movement in his varied techniques.

Along with fist and palm hand combinations, he teaches 15 varieties of kicks, including the "Sweep-of-a-Thousand-Armies, the deadly Iron-Broom Sweep, and the exclusive, Heaven's Palm Thunder Kick. Students desiring to learn under Heaven's Palm Boxing Association are accepted by appointment only. Enrollment is limited and purposely kept small so that students will receive quality instruction and guidance. Contact Heaven's Palm via email (Dogattacks@yahoo.com) for more information.

In addition to the regular martial arts above, read on for information about defending yourself or loved one from an attack by a vicious dog.

NOW, NEVER AGAIN FEAR BEING ATTACKED BY A VICIOUS DOG. Though it may not have happened yet, there is always the potential of ending up like this unfortunate victim---on the receiving end of a VICIOUS dog attack: "An attacking dog had peeled her scalp from her skull and ripped her teeth and gums from her jaw. More than 70 bites left the skin and muscles of her arms hanging like rags from her bones..." Click here to read more.

Although the woman above was, unfortunately, defenseless and received extremely serious, life-long injuries, there is a different, positive side to this equation. Click on the link below to see the gratifying story of what a kid did:

Interesting to know.

Very interesting. One of my friend is a mailman. He told me he was under constant risk of being attacked by a dog. I'd definitely recommend him to learn some of your techniques. I myself always have this heroic fantasy of single-handedly bring down a bear and save everybody. Nice to see you today and keep up with your creativity and enthusiasm.

Great website! It doesn't matter what type of breed-poodle or pitbull-dog attacks can happen to anyone, anywhere. Being prepared can mean the difference between walking away unharmed or being injured by the dog. By the way, it was great seeing you at the library the other day! It's always a treat to see a familiar face.
