The system compliments and readily adapts into all forms of Martial art and Self Defence systems. The training has proven to have had a positive influence on students lives and prepares mind and body to respond to threats against your safety or your life, together with developing a fighters reflex. Use of pads and gloves is utilised for warm ups and contact training and provides excellent fitness training.
