I have been a student at Parker’s Self Defense for 4 years. What I love about the Clayton Studio is that I am learning a complete system of self-defense from standing, to ground work to weapons training. I truly believe that everyone has the right defend themselves or their loved ones from someone trying to do you harm. I know in such a confrontation it can be scary, adrenaline can take over and most of all it can happen quickly. At Parker’s Self Defense we learn how to handle a confrontation in a straight forward and effective manner.

Come on over and see for yourself.

Excellent! I began 19 months ago at 46 years of age. I was laid up in bed with Chronic Lyme Disease and 70 lbs extra. I was only able to attend 1 hour twice a week at first. Now, I am able to attend up to 10 hrs a week including Grappling, Mixed Martial Arts, and Xtreme Martial Arts which is like gymnastics. I have lost 30 lbs and gained a lot of muscle mass.

SiJo is the most knowledgeable Martial Arts Expert I have heard about and he is very well respected in the Martial Arts Community. Right here in Clayton, NC. I am SO glad we found him!

We joined as a family for many reasons to include; health, discipline, confidence, self-worth, and family time. We have been very happy with the results in all of our reasons for joining. SiJo and the Instructors are excellent and the Bai Kai Family is great.


My kids were the first to start at Parker's Self Defense in Clayton. I joined just to try to get in shape. Over 7 years later, my daughter and I have both earned Black Sashes. SiJo James Parker is indeed a master - his knowledge of kung fu and other martial arts is unsurpassed, and he is a fantastic teacher. I highly recommend Parker's Self Defense for young children, "tweens", teens, and adults.

This studio has a very questionable lineage. After leaving the school, I did some investigating and it is very hard to prove anything about their lineage. The atmosphere is terrible to learn in, because they have really small lobbies with screaming children all the time. All of my certs are garbage and mean nothing after two years. I am starting all over again.

They want money for everything. It is a minimum of $100 a month, plus fees for your certs. If you are a part of the grappeling program, certs cost $40! He gets the certs from the American Jujitsu federation for $5! Anyone can get them for $5! You must purchase all your gear through them only, and pay their high prices! Beware This School!



Great program but billing company is terrible

The program here is great, but the company he uses to bill will call and harass you to pay even after you have canceled. It would be far better if the studio did their own billing.

Great studio for kids, teens, and Adults

Bai Kai in not a sport it is a Kung Fu system designed around true self defense. Kids, teens, and adults all will learn skills for their level.

Visit the baikaikungfu website for more information.

For the last twenty years the Bai Kai system of self defense has become recognized and respected throughout the United States as well as the world.

Great family atmosphere and wonderful instructor!

My twins boys started taking the Little Warriors class first and by the 3rd or 4th month I was enrolled as well.
Everyone from the instructors to the members treat you like family.
Safety is their number one priority.
Would highly recommend.

Great Studio for Individuals and Family

Great instructors. Owner/Operators are patient, friendly and selective. Hope to see them continue to grow and expand into larger facility.
They offer safe and sane instruction to those serious about learning Kung Fu, Tai Chi, and Grappling. They do not tolerate unsafe practices or individuals who are unsafe.
They also offer great instruction for young children.
This is my first experience w/ a martial arts studio and am very pleased w/ the instruction I have received.
