Combat Sports 

Shoot-Boxing, Muay Thai & K1 Kickboxing...

is standup fighting and involves the punches, kicks, elbows, knees, clinch & takedowns from Muay Thai, Filipino Kickboxing, JKD, K1 & the throws of Ju Jitsu. We have active fighters within Muay Thai and K1 Kickboxing style competition and encourage people to compete in a safe environment.

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)...

is a full-contact combat sport made popular by the UFC & Bellator. MMA combines striking from K1 style Kickboxing, clinch techniques from Muay Thai and grappling & submissions Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu...

is a martial art that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. This BJJ class is taught by SBG UK Bradford coach & 2018 UK Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Champion Mark 'Spenna' Spencer.

Rapid Assault Tactics/JKD Concepts

Rapid Assault Tactics...

is a modern self defence system derived from Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do. Originally designed for US Navy SEAL Team Six, R.A.T has been adopted by FBI, and CIA and many police department SWAT teams through the US.

A street fight is not confined to a weight class, there is no 'tapout' and no referee to decide when a fighter is too injured to continue. Practitioners always train with the assumption that attackers are bigger, stronger, and has “friends”. R.A.T streamlines Jeet Kune Do. Techniques are chosen for efficiency and realism and include biting, eye gouging, striking with the head, elbows, knees, fighting on the ground, empty hand or with weapons. R.A.T is strategic system of fighting designed to neutralise attacks through destruction or interception, to provide forward pressure to off-balance the attacker, and enter and terminate the threat as quickly as possible.

Unfortunately in this day & age many young people carry weapons. R.A.T teaches people to find & fight with an 'equalizer', be it a pen, a stick, a bottle, a coffee cup, a walking stick or an umbrella.

Why choose TheFightLab? 

Our MMA & Shoot-Boxing syllabus contains the best of Muay Thai, K1 Kickboxing, Filipino Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Wrestling. We are active on the interclub circuit in both Muay Thai & MMA. Both MMA & Shoot-Boxing are an excellent cardio workout & great for general fitness, weight-loss & self defence.

Our Rapid Assault Tactics syllabus provides you with a world class formula for Self-Defence. We want to equip you and your family with a plan and a fighting chance. Our techniques and strategies are battle tested. We have adapted our training methods for civilians just like you. We are a no nonsense organisation dedicated to teaching realistic self-defence. We will provide you with the skills necessary to survive any random act of violence.

All our instructors are fully qualified at black belt level, licensed, DBS cleared and carry full UK public liability insurance and endorsement.

Paul Vunak
message from Uncle Vu

This message is for anyone who loves and respects the memory of our grandfather Bruce Lee. When Bruce Lee passed all assumed his memory would be memorialized throughout asia.

Indeed my promise to Dan was to promote this very narrative.

Recently Chris Moran my east coast director of operations took a team of instructors to south Korea for the very first time in our history showing Contemporary Jeet Kune do.

What we learned about the preception of Bruce's art in Asia was astonishing! Chris visit was so enlightening to the students in korea that it spread like a wild fire, and hit us here at home in america.

What I'm about to say is the most shocking enigma in martial arts history. I hope your all sitting down... The entire continent of Asia thinks that Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do is what they have seen in the movies!

Millions ,and millions of people have conflated theatratical Jeet Kune Do with Functional Jeet Kune Do!!! When the students of Asian saw the true nature of JKD in its entirely, when they saw our R.A.T. program complete with face bites, trapping and military quick kills.

People's lifes where changed, the preception of Bruce's Art was given a new light and national pride reborn.

and THE GREATEST AND MOST LUCRATIVE BUSINESS OPPURTUNITY WAS BORN!!! THAT will help keep BRUCE ART Alive and thriving in Asia.

On Nov 8th-9th, 2019 on my Bruce Lee Immersive Weekend.

We will serve to license 50 new people to launch Bruce Lee / Military R.A.T. Program starting in ASIA.. Stay Tuned! - Vunak out

Rankings are NOT given away. They are earned. It takes at least 6 year to gain a black belt even for a gifted student. This is also a way for our fighters and potential fighters to gain confidence in themselves. Earning a rank shows that they have put in the work and haven’t cut corners in their training. The most important thing to us is seeing our students achieve something. Whether it be having their first bout, training for the next grading that will get them to the next level as long as they can reflect on their achievements with pride, we feel as though we have done our job. As well as demonstrating technical knowledge, student must earn points towards grades by sparring in interclub competitions.

TheFightLab Shoot-Boxing ranking system is a means of signifying a practitioner’s increasing level of technical knowledge and practical skill in the art.

One of my Facebook friends shared this picture yesterday, the post was referring to wannabe gangsters who go around stabbing each other and the effect it has on the emergency services.

This is where you end up, bleeding, alone, terrified, and 9 times out of 10 crying for your mom as you fight for your life.

This photo brought back memories of when i was stabbed multiple times going to the aid of some girls that were being attacked.

I remember the crash team working on me cutting my clothes off and the doctors not answering me when i asked if i was going to die.

I had tubes being inserted into my body and the 2 surgeons discussing what they were going to do to me.

I only survived thanks to the skill of the surgical team, however the aftermath is something that will have a ripple effect your entire life.

Think about how it affects your future, your family, your victims family.

I always say that i am one of the lucky ones that survived to tell the tale.

Don’t carry a knife. 🙏
