The network was born out of necessity when the Governors of three states (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) closed the doors of all martial arts academies during the Corona Virus outbreak in 2020. The Lemonade Network came to fruition with the goal of providing students from Plus One Defense Systems with the ability to train in all the major martial arts systems that we provide… right from the comfort of their own homes.
With 30 instructors on-staff, teaching many of the major martial arts disciplines, one of the things that makes Plus One Defense Systems unique is that we have all these different experts teaching different systems- all under one roof!
I’m always inviting our Muay Thai students to train in Kung-Fu, and our Kung-Fu students to train in Krav Maga, and our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu students to try Capoeira… etc. I do this because I’ve trained in these systems, and I know how wonderfully they complement each other. However, many people are not able to try the different classes during times of normal function (i.e. when we are running around like normal). But now, we have the opportunity to provide you with a way to make that happen.
Students from Plus One Defense Systems can obtain a DAILY LESSON IN EVERY STYLE THAT WE OFFER! That’s a lot of content… coming out each day at different times.
Our students ask for fruit from the tree of martial arts knowledge, and we are giving them the whole orchard! (I spoke with my dad the night we were shut down, and he said, “I’m not exactly sure how you turn lemons into lemonade on this one.” Dad- this is how!) We’re going to open people’s eyes to the beauty of the martial arts- all of them! What they couldn’t experience before, we are going to give to them, now.
This program is free for all students from Plus One Defense Systems who keep their enrollment current during this time. We appreciate your support, and The Lemonade Network will continue to be available, with new content coming online, even after the shutdown is over. (This is not something we are doing as a “filler” … but rather… it’s something we are doing to innovate, motivate, and inspire.)
Visit the Why We Train section to see interviews from our students, and the instructors. They talk about the benefits of martial arts training and what it means to them, how it has impacted their life, and the importance it truly has to them.
Students of Plus One … I hope you are thirsty!
