Latest news & events

Brett brings a wealth of knowledge from various martial arts, the armed forces and door work which means there is a lot of real world scenarios built into the training, but it’s also fun. The training can be intense but it is to demonstrate that techniques work on all shapes and sizes, which they do. KAPAP is a different martial art, more of a thinking martial art where principles are the key and techniques evolve and change over time. The variety is also something I like as we can be doing ground work one week, or firearm or knife drills the next. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to try martial arts or wanting to try something new.
