Here's a quick video of a drill we call "Cover & Connect" that we use in our Self-Defense Combatives Classes to teach our members and students to cover up and protect against haymaker attacks, followed immediately with close range elbows and counter attacks.


TST Squad member & Guest Kickboxing Instructor Gene Kim discuss the concept of Range Management and Dictating Fighting Space in our Thursday night Kickboxing Class.  Dictating and maintaining space in all forms of combative arts is very important.  Often the person who can manage and dictate the space can dominate the fight.  

kickboxing drills /// modified dekkers combo

TST Squad Instructor Stewart E demonstrates a Kickboxing Flow Drill made famous by the Kickboxing Legend Ramon Dekkers.  For those unfamiliar with Dekkers, he was an elite Dutch Kickboxer and 8-time Muay Thai World Champion, known for his aggressive, fast-paced and violent fighting style.  We call this a "Modified Dekkers Comobo" because he traditionally ended the hand combinations with two lead leg kicks.  To align closer with Self-Defense & Combatives we modify to add a Shock Entry into the clinch with knees. 

mechanics matter

TST Instructor & Pro Fighter D'Juan "Dirty South" Owens cover proper fight mechanics in his Wednesday night MMA Class.  Whether it's for self-defense, kickboxing or MMA, utilizing efficient and effective body mechanics is essential for creating devastating power while also retaining your energy and stamina in a fight.
