a nonsport form of mixed martial arts combining Kickboxing, Defendo and Russian Systema.
Striking is the primary human self-defence weapon and when complemented with effective standing and ground grappling along with a tactical approach to managing your safety, it will equip you with a complete set of skills to increase your confidence and make you a hard target for crime. This mixed martial art combines Kickboxing Modern Defendo and Russian Systema to capitalize on the valuable skills and tactics honed by professionals from policing to military. It is presented in modules including Strikes, Escape From Holds, Ground Defence & Recovery, Street Tactics and Weapons Defence.
KICKBOXING focuses on your natural instinct to strikeout in defensive situations. This system focuses on a practical approach to honing your natural weapons, “hands, feet, elbows and knees” for effective use in self-defence. It allows the defender the advantage of mobility to defend against multiple threats and escape from dangerous situations. Strikes are used throughout the training and seamlessly connect all elements of this program.
DEFENDO, developed and used by police and military, is a complete, practical, and extremely effective self-defence system utilizing a mixture of martial arts combined with police and military tactics and scenario training. The combative skills derived from this system have been pressure tested by professionals in real-life crisis situations and are designed for rapid learning and deployment. The Defendo system provides solid training in a full range of realistic combative techniques including effective defence against frontal assaults, rear assaults, ground fighting, weapons, surprise attacks, and much more. Training drills are designed to develop your ability to react effectively and without hesitation to the common threats in the real world.
RUSSIAN SYSTEMA focuses on developing body intelligence, improving intuition, control over your emotions, and your psyche in stressful situations and is woven into this program to improve your overall results and experience in training.

The key principle of the Russian Systema is non-destruction. The goal is to make sure that your training and your attitudes do no damage to the body or the psyche of you or your partners. Systema is designed to create, build and strengthen your body, your psyche, your family and your community.
Systema is a very practical and unique form of self-defence and covers all elements of combat, including punching, kicking, throws, locks, pressure points, groundwork and weapons. You will study many elements of Systema from movement for defense against single or multiple opponents, to breathing which revitalizes and strengthens the body.
