Course Description

This resource is a complete online programme for 4D Combat instructors.

It will give you all the techniques you'll need for teaching at the highest level. 

Striking: the best of Filipino boxing / Panantukan and JKD but from 4D Combats unique viewpoint. Simpler, more functional, more potent, more flow. 

Punching

Kicking 

Elbows

Manipulation

and much more. 

Clinch: Simple yet devastating methods that will put you and your students ahead of the rest. 

Learn how to control their balance, throw. wrist lock, counter throw and counter lock,  whatever's needed. 

Integration: 4D's unique integration flows and training methods that will take you from striking to locking and/or throwing and clinching, and back to striking again if needed. 

Whatever comes up in a in a sparring session your students will be ready. Our unique training methods guarantee them, and you, success and domination of opponents. 

At present this programme focuses on the empty hands of 4D. From striking to clinch its a complete copy of our rolling online but with instant access to any module or episode. Plus there's much more only for affiliate instructors.
