There are no rules in a street fight. Western boxing is often called the “sweet science” due to its adherence to a set of rules that govern its proven effectiveness. Panantukan, on the other hand, manages to mix the sweet science with what can only be described as organized chaos. Use head movement to avoid a strike – or meet that strike with an elbow strike. Throw a left hand-right hand punch combination – or throw that same combination and follow it up with a “dumog” or grappling/wrestling technique. Panantukan Concept in a variant of Filipino martial arts empty-hand striking which takes the fundamentals of Western Boxing and integrates them with elements of other martial art disciplines to form a complete system designed to account for threats encountered on the street. Come and see for yourself what happens when you mix a little science with a little chaos.
It is inevitable that anyone who has the misfortune of being involved in a knife attack will come away with injuries, whether minor or severe. We train to fight with edged weapons not to avoid the probability of injury, but to significantly minimize the probability of severe injury. Knife Fighting Concept is a system designed to do just that by teaching practitioners how to fight with a knife or defend against a knife attack. Practitioners will learn knife handling techniques, striking angles, speed drills, and much more. When your edged weapon becomes an extension of your hand, you ensure that you will have an advantage in situations where a knife fight is unavoidable.
