There are only a handful of people who have the ability to pull off the combination of good looks and deadly moves. James Bond, the cool intel agent in a tailored suit who can order a cocktail one minute and disarm an attacker the next. The assassin John Wick who was dragged back into the life, hellbent on delivering a fist-full of revenge. The ex-government operator Jason Bourne, fighting to reveal the truth he has forgotten. And let’s not forget Natasha Romanov, ex-Soviet assassin who can take out a room full of Generals in a slinky dress. These men and women know the value of a good suit to dazzle the eye and conceal deadly skill. Let’s not deny it, we’ve all watched these characters and wished we could be them.
So join me at Horizon Training Center in your most dapper of outfits for a few hours of martial arts training fit for the big screen. We are going to go through a series of scenarios countering empty hand attacks; countering the jab, cross, and hook to return our own flurry of punishment. We’ll move on to cover a few empty hand vs blade counters; disarm and disable. You’ll have to stay sharp for these. At the end of the evening we’ll step into the danger zone by running a multiple opponent scenario.
Dapper and non-Dapper are welcome but a dapper outfit will get you a discount for the workshop. Look good but I suggest wearing something that will let you move. You don’t have to do the full Bond tuxedo. Slacks and a button up will suffice. Egos are checked at the door. We are aiming to have a little fun and learn a few things. Cooperation, not competition tonight! We all want to look good so we’re going to help our partners look their best.
