No styles, no systems, no rituals, no lineages, no masters, no labels, no belts, no katas, no uniforms, no dogmas;

Only the process of self actualization & personal expression of truth through functional combative movement and fitness.

On a purely physical level, we share how to individually and collectively use all of our natural tools as well as extended ones, offensively and defensively in a strategic and tactical manner and in all ranges of combat.

We're put through functional physical fitness training where we learn to push ourselves through our own perceived limitations. We also have much to offer on nutrition, health and optimum performance.

On a more cerebral level we learn about the psychology of violence, fear, stress & confrontation management skills, deescalation strategies and holistic survival tactics.

As the mind navigates the body; by challenging personal self defense dogmas and individual & core belief systems, personal growth and evolution occurs.

On a human level, we learn about the ripple effect and the moral, legal, and ethical consequences of our chosen actions while self examining our darkest emotions. We are encouraged to question everything, to learn to think for ourselves, to be more accountable and research everything we learn and to be open and responsive to life without judgment.

On a personal level, the training can make you face and slay your own demons.

Everything shared here is highly encouraged to be individually researched, to “absorb what is useful, add what is specifically of your own and disregard the rest.”

Aladdin Abo Bakr El-Gendy and I assissting along side Adora Spencer who was lecturing on dream building.
Lecturing on the prevention of violence.
Hanging with my bro Aladdin Abo Bakr El-Gendy who assissts me and translates for me when necessary.

Working mainly with women's organizatons and movements in Egypt has proven to be a challenge due the hard core rooted beliefs and cultural differences.  However, even with the challneges presented we've managed to reach countless people making a considerable difference bringing forth education and knowledge in self defense for self development through Television, magazines and seminars.
