MUAY THAI SELF DEFENCE
We take the art of Muay Thai into the street. TheFightLab is Huddersfield's premier reality based self defence venue and we have experience training both the public, security, hospital & police staff. Though based on Muay Thai & Southeast Asian fighting styles we are in a state of constant evolution and Integrated Defence Concepts is never standing still, fuelled by research and investigation. Our syllabus is designed to be usable immediately without years of honing. This is a highly efficient & effective martial art with its no-nonsense approach to dealing with an attacker that is armed or unarmed. We are dedicated towards the study and investigation of survival of the modern day streets.
This program will give you all the tools you need to stop the most common types of violent encounters with your newly developed and STRESS TESTED physical skills, and will let you walk around with a better understanding of the world around you.
“Using no way as way; having no limitation as limitation.”
MUAY THAI FOR THE STREET
Dealing with life and death street violence is unfortunately a reality in our world. Our Self Defence syllabus was born out of years of training in Muay Thai, Muay Boran, Grappling and other reality based self defence systems. The aim is to take it into into a modern street combative structure. No point scoring, no tapouts...
You will learn:
Striking: Striking-based training that is both defensive and offensive; emphasis on footwork and “close-range” fighting. Use of punches, elbows, hammer-fists, knees, kicks, headbutts.
Street Grappling: Develop the skills for stand-up grappling (throws, takedowns etc.) as well as learning how to fight off the ground and regain your feet again.
Use of Guards (see right): By knowing through research and experience, that most emotionally driven aggression is directed towards the face/head, and protecting this area is key to being able to survive the initial onset of an attack and then respond appropriately. In laymans terms, by the time I’ve worked out which block to use, I’ve already been punched in the face!
Guards - The fundamental defensive tools of our syllabus.
SMASHING & ENTERING SKILLS
Used as both offensive and defensive tactics, smashing & entering allows you to safely and effectively close the distance in hand to hand combat.
BLOCKS & GUARDS: Guards are a high protection “covers” that are both defensive and offensive. They are your base-layer of entering into close quarters combat range to clinch & takedown.
HAMMERS & TRAPS: Hammer Strikes create “smashing” entries that give you the power to blast through your opponents guards and attacks. Hammer strike movements open up lines for traps that give you superior control over your opponent to shield, takedown or finish.
