FANTASY vs REALITY KNIFE WORKSHOP
Delivered by Master Instructor Mannie de Matos
This workshop covers the fantasy applications of knife defense, flow and disarms from angle 1 (body thrust) and angle 2 (downward angle slash). It will also cover the realistic TDE Trauma Destroy Exit methodologies.
Martial arts are, in a very real sense, a way of solving problems.
These problems can be broadly defined - improving fitness or learning to defend yourself from an attacker, or more specific, such as how to land a particular punch against a particular opponent in a particular bout.
The parallells between this and solving problems in business or personal life are easy to see. Dealing with difficult customers, expanding your skill base, managing stress and finding opportunities where others see difficulties are all part of this. Not sure how?
Is self-defence a lifestyle?
A very interesting point of discussion in a seminar with Richard Dimitri and Chris Roberts recently has really got me thinking on a different aspect of self-protection training. While it is something that I am acutely aware of, I have never really verbalised it. So here goes.
But before we proceed… A key word throughout the next few points is moderation. Read all the way to the end and you’ll see what I mean!

Convert your ring skills to street self defence
6th Dan Dr Gavriel Schneider presents a dynamic workshop designed to put your MMA training into focus for self defence. Combine striking, grappling, takedowns, joint locks and defend against a variety of street attacks that are common in Australia today.
A while ago I discussed the ‘Dojo Syndrome’.
I had received some very positive feedback about the first two articles (you can read them here and here), with many instructors saying ‘this is exactly what happens!’ and had a few requests to post some more tips. I hope this helps you with your training!
