Learn defensive martial arts in Sutton, Mitcham and Morden
Learn to defend yourself against a knife attack, gain some positive energy and release stress by learning a martial art.
Chi Combat System is a mixture of martial arts designed solely for street attack defence.
It was created by Donunim Master Ralph Allison, 52, who decided in 2009 that it was time to create a martial art with less complicated patterns based solely on defence.
He says his martial arts are based purely on self-defence and one of the things they teach is knife defence.
Knife defence is not that different to blocking a punch however after dodging and blocking you must restrain your attacker.
Allison says: “Many martial arts teachers teach you to defend yourself against someone roughly the same size.
“I think that’s rubbish – a small person should be able to defend themselves from anyone.
“It’s a fallacy that people think you have to be big and strong to defend yourself.
“I used to be quite shy – when I was a boy my older brother said to my mum why don’t you take him to martial arts.
“My brother was county champion in Judo and I started Judo but I found it very restrictive.
“Judo was just not good enough so I kept searching.”
Chi Combat System is all about pressure points and being quick and anyone can take part.
