Martial Artist attacked by a group

You are better off with a real street defence system to protect your life and health. Anti Terror Combat provides real self defence skills and keeps you safe
Martial artist attacked by a group (text taken from http://www.presseportal.de/polizeipresse/p_story.htx?firmaid=35235)

"In der Nacht auf Sonntag wurde in der Innenstadt ein 25 Jahre alter Bremer überfallen. Eine Gruppe von sechs bis acht Personen schlug ihn nieder und entwendete Geld aus seinem Portmonee. Der 25-Jährige wurde im Bereich Marktplatz - Domshof - Domsheide von Mitgliedern der Gruppe angesprochen: "Geld her oder es knallt! Die Forderung ignorierend setzte der Bremer seinen Weg zunächst zu Fuß fort. Zwei Gruppenmitglieder erwiesen sich aber als besonders aggressiv und griffen ihn an. Da der 25-Jährige über langjährige Kampfsporterfahrung verfügt, setzte er sich zur Wehr und rang seine beiden Gegner nieder. Das war für den Rest der Gruppe das Zeichen, ebenfalls auf den Angegriffenen loszugehen. Mehrere Personen schlugen -unter anderem mit einem Teleskopschlagstock- auf den Sportler ein, verletzten ihn dabei und raubten ihn aus."

Well I better translate: A man with several years experience in the Martial Arts was robbed, beaten and injured in the City of Bremen. (That’s where I come from, that’s why I mention it here). At first there is nothing so unusual with this incident. Fights, robbery, all this is common nowadays.

What I like to point out is, you might train even for years some Martial Art. But when it comes to a real street fight, often the Martial Artist finds he is helpless. Why is that? First, there is a different environment, not the comfy dojo. Then there is no referee who says “Yame”, when one gets injured. And last not least, the real fight in the streets can take longer than the 2 or 3 minutes rounds in a competition.

Final it is all a question what you looking for in your Martial Arts. We here at Ichinen Bridport do Jiu-Jitsu (Saddam Hussein would have said: “The mother of the Martial Arts”). And one of our main aims to do so, is to train the best of street self defence! The best self defence is provided by Anti Terror Combat. You can learn these skills too at Ichinen Bridport martial arts school.

The advantage of private tuition



The advantage of private tuition is unchallengeable. Weather you are a member of a regular martial art class already or you have no commitment at all in the moment and look for a way to get active again. A private lesson will give you this ignition to do something for yourself.

Master Horst Lindenau offers now to one or two students private 1:1 teaching in the martial arts. It is possible to connect two students too. Master Horst is a licensed  sports teacher for martial arts and yoga with over 27 years of experience as a martial art instructor.

If you are serious about your training and learning don't miss out this opportunity in the Bridport area. There are not many skilled teachers around like master Horst Lindenau and you don't need to travel too far for your tuition, if you live in the Bridport area.

The training is either in the Bridport Dojo or even can be arranged at your home. The costs are calculated on what package you book and how often you like and need training.

You can get trained in the following arts

Jiu-Jitsu is the most complete solution if it comes to martial arts. You can say "it is the mother of the martial arts". With Jiu-Jitsu you will gain skills for not only self defence but you train your mental attitude as well. The style Master Horst teaches is traditionell, effective and convincing.

Anti Terror Combat is a radical self defence. With these skills your life becomes safer and it is "easy to learn".

Yoga does not need much explanation. Yoga is the oldest form of physical training, probably 5000 years the first traces can be dated back. Today Yoga became a big industry in the western world. If you don't like or cannot join a regular local Yoga class, master Horst is a graduated Yoga instructor and a Tantra Yoga teacher.

Training available for male and female over the age of 12 years. There is no age limit upward.

If you live in the Bridport area ring Master Horst on 07968 235486.

Look forward to meet you !

Jiu-Jitsu / JuJutsu / Jujitsu ?

Hold on the ground Jiu-Jitsu technique

What means Jiu-Jitsu?

Literally spoken, it is the gentle art, the technique of suppleness and flexibility. Jitsu means art in Japanese and when you translate the Japanese into all the other languages it also known as Ju Jutsu, Jujutsu, Jujitsu or written with a hyphen as in Jiu-Jitsu or Ju-Jitsu. The confusion already starts when you move from one country to another as I did. 

What is Jiu-Jitsu in Germany is wrongly taken as BJJ (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) in Britain. And so on... But as we say, names are sound and echo.

Today we have uncounted styles all over the world and that is very much the same than at the time this popular combat system can traced back in history. In ancient Japan in the late 17th to mid 19th century there were over 700 different systems. All based on the same principle, the gentle art. Winning by losing. What counts most is the effectiveness in combat. And that includes the armed and unarmed skills.

Jiu-Jitsu techniques include striking and kicking, kneeing, throwing and choking, joint locking, holding and tying. And all these skills are or can be combined with weapons. Therefore it is a truly all round combat system and today very much used for self defence.Useful for men and women and all ages.
