Kubotan,knife fighting, machete, staff- Armed Combat & Tactics

All the techniques done in full speed in actual sparring. If you want to take some one down in knife combat – take him down and take him out. But stay on your feet of you can!

ninjitzu“Imagine a situation in which a visitor enters a Dojo full of people who have been training for 20 years, and performs 100 bouts against them wining 95 of them with ease. This is exactly what happened when Alex came to our club.”

Zouler Moshe, Senior Bujinkan Ninjutsu instructor.

“ACT’s PRACTIC program provided me with a better understanding of fighting with weapons. And through that, I’m a better fighter (also with empty hands).
The course gives an incredible training methodology, easily transferred to Krav Maga or any other discipline.

Also it helped my school a lot because most of the students love ACT drills and the possibility of sparring almost from the first lesson. Since I have included ACT contents and methodology in my classes, the number of students has increased a lot.
Thanks Alex and Noah!!”

Sergio Lopez, Chief instructor at AK – ACT & Krav Maga Madrid.

About Armed Combat and Tactics

Essentially ACT is bringing the concept of MMA to the world of practicing weapon based martial arts.

A.C.T. is about giving the student the tools to handle himself/herself in combat with weapons. Not to merely perform the kata or drills with perfect precision, but rather to actually be able to fight with the weapons taught in the curriculum. Translation? We teach people how to fight with weapons.
