  • Details:

Many assaults including carjacking, armed robberies, home invasions, and hate crime targeted assaults will involve an attacker/attackers approaching you under a false pretext to deceive you and then surprise attacking you.  These situations present a unique challenge as we are often approached by people in our daily lives in contexts which do not represent a combative threat.  You need a strong understanding counter ambush strategies and tactics to go with your combat mindset to deal with these type of attacks.

This seminar will build the standard core skill sets of the Tang Wei Fighting Method but will focus on applying those skills in response to deceptive surprise assaults.  The first half of the seminar will build the generic mindset, strategies and tactics needed for success in dealing with a deceptive assault.  This half of the seminar will focus upon power output, targeting, and adaptable fighting entries.

The second half of the seminar will focus on application.  The generic skills learned in the first half of the seminar will be expanded upon and applied using scenario drills and training exercises allowing the participants to develop their own ability to spontaneously respond to empty handed assaults and concealed weapon assaults.

  • Pre-register at: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0a48aaae2ca6f85-fighting
  • Details:

Armed robberies, many home invasions, carjacking, rapes and several other crimes all depend upon being able to hold the intended victim at gun or knife point.  While the preferred option is to avoid such situations or to counter the assailant before they are able to put you in such a position, what do you do if errors have already been made and you need to fight out of this type of disadvantage?

This workshop will focus on teaching efficient reversals, counters and escapes facing various holds both standing and on the ground where the enemy is holding you at knife or gun point.

  • Details:

Power output is often an insurmountable factor in a fight whether it is for or against you.  In most people’s eyes, power output is determined by size, strength and basic physical prowess.  While athletic attributes can help with power, often athleticism translates much less into effective power output than effective knowledge, skill and specific coordination habits.

One of the signature features of the Tang Wei Fighting Method is our collection of power drills and concepts which allows tremendous increases in power output which can negate large disadvantages in size and strength and enjoy a power output advantage over larger adversaries through superior skill in terms of power generation.

This workshop will cover several physical and mental power concepts from the Tang Wei Fighting Method while focusing on applying them to grappling methods for finishing a fight.  Targeting will be covered for application of low, medium and high levels of force.  Power output and fight finishing is the core skill set which other tactics and strategies are built around, a thorough understanding of it is a must for anyone that studies close quarters fighting.
