Creator: V.Carnage
Martial Art Name: Rhodes Self Defense
Other Names: The Evolving Art
Description: Rhodes Self Defense is a majorly defensive type martial art.  It puts little emphasis on attacks of its own and instead puts more focus into stopping opponents.  For this reason it is not the best at initiation and is instead better when the opposition makes the first move.  It is, however, very good at fighting both one-on-one and many opponents at once. This fighting style is known as the Evolving Art as none of it's techniques are set in stone and are largely based on the practitioners preference as well as the opponents they are facing.  The style focuses heavily on adapting to both a spontaneous situation and an ever changing fighting world.  It is, therefore, an art that continues to change and adapt as needed.  

Specialties: Grabs, Guards, Counters
Sub-Specialties: Dodging, Adaptability, Acrobatics

History: The style was originally conceived by Eugene Rhodes.  He believed that as the world changes, so should oneself.  Throughout his whole life he learned the ways of various martial arts from around the world with his wife Valentina.  After conglomerating all that he had learned and starting a non-formal self defense school for himself, he continued to adapt and evolve the style with his students which included his single son, Maxwell.  When Eugene died at age 55 Valentina took over.  Valentina personally developed and progressed much of the style and most of what is currently taught was developed by her.  In her old age, she passed her title of Grandmaster along to her son Maxwell.
Maxwell continued teaching the art throughout his life.  He is also the current Grandmaster of the art but is nearing the time where he shall transfer the title.  The title was originally going to his eldest son Adam Rhodes, but after his tragic death Maxwell had to find someone else.  Maxwell is currently undecided between his two remaining children and twins William and Alma Rhodes as to who shall take over.  While both are Masters in the art, Alma is a better fighter and practitioner, so it is internally believed she will be the next Grandmaster.  William, however, while falling behind in combat, is noted to be a better teacher and currently runs his own public martial arts school in Blackburn, California.
