Self defence with Anti Terror Combat

Ranks of Anti Terror Combat
The martial arts are probably the second oldest trade of mankind. And as in any other trade, there were people in leading positions and those they been apprentices. It is only a few decades ago, that people started ranking systems where they called some a master and some others were the disciples and attached them some kind of distinction. As many of the today’s martial arts are originated from ancient Japan, these awards came in form of a belt.

After the WWII, the world of martial arts was flooded with coloured belts. Today we find systems with up to 18 different colour ranks for students and even the master belts had an increase in numbers and design.

Anti Terror Combat decorates the members with a simple and clear, very modern and same time traditional system of belt ranks. A student who joins in new is a white belt. After he managed his knowledge to a qualified and higher level, he will become a brown belt. These two ranks have to be verified by a grading procedure.


Now the member is a fine martial artist, awarded with the rank of a brown belt and demonstrates the skills within the martial arts, specialized in self defence and combat.
The promotion to a master rank is rather a mental issue, a question of character and leadership, experience and honour than a technical requirement. This rank gets awarded from the Anti Terror Combat organisation headquarters in connection with the national presidents of the country of residence.

There are two general ways to obtain a master's degree in Anti Terror Combat. Either one graduates as a brown belt and gets awarded to 1st Dan black belt. Or the aspirant already is a master in a recognized martial arts style and can provide credible proof of sufficient knowledge and skills in the field of self defence. In this case he can get awarded depending on his profile.


The Anti Terror Combat master degree highlights these special skills and performance and gives proof of good practice. This rank is not in any competition with any other existing ranks and the Anti Terror Combat system does not require a specific method of self defence or style. Each martial artist performs in his field. Although Anti Terror Combat provides the latest and most update from the self defence industry worldwide.

Martial arts seminar in Dorset

Seminar on the 30th of April 2017
1-5 pm at the Loders village hall, Loders, DT6 3SA

Contribution £ 25 / Every participant receives an official Anti Terror Combat certificate

This seminar is devoted to my grandmaster Horst Weiland † Germany, 10th Dan Anti-Terrorkampf. He died 10 years ago and his life was doubtless dedicated to the martial arts. I had the big opportunity to study under his supervision for 365 days of daily training and learning. All what I know today and what influenced me to develop my own way with the martial arts in later years was hugely influenced by this extraordinary man. I pay him the biggest respect and keep his memory in honour.

In the coming up seminar you learn the toughest defence against the 10 most common attacks in Britain and in Germany. It will enable you to deal with the attacker that he cannot stand a chance.

The seminar is suitable for everyone over 16 years. Beginners and advanced visitors welcome.

New Logo for the Anti Terror Combat organisation

The Anti Terror Combat organisation is proud to publish their new logo





The previous logo with the flashy death's head was in use to start with, but we thought it looked a bit childish and coltish. As well the font Anti Terror Combat uses now is more readable, less artistic and serves the purpose. As clear the system itself, as awesome the appearance.

Eye sight Yoga seminar coming up this April

Eye sight Yoga seminar coming up this April, 16th , 10-12 am in Bridport.

Tantra Yoga - Three eyes seminar 

With master Horst Lindenau

The effects of eye exercises are dual. Physical: Yoga eye exercises help to maintain or improve the 

sight and energetic: Since the eyes are also connected to the important Nadis (energy channels), eye exercises harmonize the solar energies in humans.

In addition, the eye exercises open the so called third eye, the Ajna Chakra, which stands for 

intuition and knowledge. The third eye is our connection to the spiritual energy of wisdom and 
knowledge.

When the third eye is open, energy can flow freely.


The training is, of course, holistic.


When? Sunday, the 16th of April 2017 - 10-12 am

Where? Dojo 86 North Allington, Bridport
Booking: text/call 07968 235486

Costs: £ 20.oo pp

Miyamoto Musashi


"The true science of martial arts means practising them in such a way that they will be useful at any time and to teach them in such a way that they will be useful in all things." 

Miyamoto Musashi

Miyamoto Musashi (宮本 武蔵?, c. 1584 – June 13, 1645), also known as Shinmen TakezōMiyamoto Bennosuke or, by his Buddhist nameNiten Dōraku was an expert Japanese swordsman and rōnin. Musashi, as he was often simply known, became renowned through stories of his excellent and unique double-bladed swordsmanship and undefeated record in his 60 duels (next to 33 of Itō Ittōsai). He was the founder of the Hyōhō Niten Ichi-ryū or Niten-ryū style of swordsmanship and in his final years authored The Book of Five Rings (五輪の書Go Rin no Sho?), a book on strategy, tactics, and philosophy that is still studied today

Meditation at Ichinen Bridport

 


Sometimes in life one needs guidance and advice. In this worksheet I will talk about the value of Mediation and how it can be approached.

I have been meditating myself for many years now. Basically it started for me when I entered the world of the Martial Arts and Yoga.  In 1989 when I graduated as a 1st Dan Jiu-Jitsu I was already close to other Masters who offered meditation and I was lucky to “study” with them. 

Later in 1996 I graduated finally as Tantra Yoga teacher and after that I never been without the meditation.

I have compiled a selection of the topics I found relevant to know and hope they will raise your interest too.

1. Meditation is not what the people say and what you read about it in the media or social media sometimes. Before the meditation there is the concentration and after that the contemplation.

2. You cannot learn this from books or other media. You need the personal advice, because meditation opens doors of your life they might give you a struggle to deal with on your own.

3. There are many ways how to meditate. Best is to choose one and stick to it for good progress.

4. You need daily practise. And do not expect fast results.

5. Meditation can change your circumstances (Life) but it is not a quick fix.

6. Keep it simple. A simple approach is good for many things in life.

7. Stay happy along the way. It helps a lot!

8. The fire of emotions needs to be kept low.

9. Patience is the essence of a man says an Asian proverb. Be patient with all what comes.

10. Free your mind from all these stories J

11. At Ichinen we meditate every Sunday morning at 9 am. Join in and start your journey.

Grading night for Joe Thorpe and Aaron Mazs

Last Tuesday night the 17th of January was grading night for Joe Thorpe and Aaron Mazs. Master Horst was absolutely impressed with their performance. We had 100s of gradings at Ichinen Bridport martial arts school, but Joe and Aaron were able to top the outcome.

Joe Thorpe did his test for the 3rd kyu (green belt) Jiu-Jitsu and he passed with a result of 2 (1 very best -6). Aaron passed his test for the 4th Kyu (orange belt) Jiu-Jitsu with the excellent result 1-2.

What is most remarkable, Joe (age 16) had Lewis A. Harris as his partner (3rd Kyu Jiu-Jitsu and Krav Maga + Kyokushinkai Karate, both 1st kyu brown belt). The age difference of both of them is 48 years, as Lewis is himself 64 and still fit as a fiddle and combat ready.

The advantage of private tuition with Master Horst is unchallengeable

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. A private lesson will give you this ignition to do something for yourself.

Master Horst Lindenau offers private 1:1 teaching in the martial arts, Yoga and meditation. 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.

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.

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. 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 too.

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