Ask yourself this question, “Should you pick-up some street fighting techniques? How much money would you pay to answer the cries of someone you love, who has been brutally ripped away from you by a sadistic predator….as you lay on the ground helpless?”
Imagine this, you are running out of some errands tonight with your girlfriend, wife or kid and were suddenly and unexpectedly attacked. Will you regret by not picking-up some close combat street fighting skills that could have saved them? The truth is, you can’t live More >
The Founder of the Total Control martial arts system.
Master Lawrence Lee with 59 years of Kung Fu and Muay Thai experience came from very humble beginnings. Originally from Malaysia, he was beaten up by a girl in kindergarten called Yoke King. She was a huge chunky lass with more male hormones than she knew what to do with.

Far too many people who are training in the martial arts or in a self-defense program – including police and security personnel by-the-way – take for granted that all they have to do is learn a few tricks and that’s it. When, according to the reality and nature of self-defense, no technique that you’ve learned in a martial arts or self-defense class is perfect in-and-of-itself for the unique situation and circumstances that you will find yourself in when you need it. And…

I once had a talk with a student who pointed out the almost insane notion that anyone could think that they could use a preset string of moves (known as a kata, pronounced kah-tah) to handle something as chaotic as a fight.

Remember when you first started training? For some, it was just a few days or weeks ago, for others, years have gone by since we took our first step on the Path of Warrior Mastery. But, can you remember?
