I’ve tried a few martial arts over many years, and if you’re looking for something that works in real situations, this is it. No fancy moves, no chasing belts or expensive grading, just no BS reality based training that covers stand up, close range and ground work.

A friendly class and great teaching from Gary, with regular support from the extended Kapap family. Certainly taught me a lot. Highly recommended.
