Techniques, in application

 Techniques are mostly practiced on punching bags and human held pads. 


Bag and pad work allow the individual training to :

        • Perfect their strikes, with greater strength, without fear of injuring the partner
        • Develop sensibility and awareness of the impact of their strikes
        • Progressively diminish their striking inhibitions
        • Feel the effect on a "human" and adapt accordingly
        • Develop confidence in their striking power


and to the individual holding the pads to :

        • Overcome their fears of strikes
        • Use the feeling of the impacts to gauge their own, increasing their sensitivity and confidence in their own ability 
        • Strengthen themselves while challenged by a more chaotic situation 


Direct contact work is meant to :

        • Live a more realistic version of the work
        • Decrease discomforts related to physical contact - the greater the comfort, the greater the strikes
        • Erode fears of hits and inhibition to defend oneself at a deeper level
        • Improve proprioception - awareness of oneself and the opponent's position in space

 

IMPORTANT

All direct contact is done with control and respect, at all times.

The objective of this work is to practice more realistically, safely. 




Invincibility is utopia. Strength and skill, these are achievable 

Our mission is to help you develop and assert 

your physical and psychological strength with detachment.

All you need to do is get here. We'll do the rest!
