4D combat – Self-defence - for all in Hoxton / Shoreditch at New City Fitness Only two minutes’ walk from Hoxton overground station.
4D Combat was developed from the two amazing arts of Jeet Kune Do and Kali. JKD developed by Bruce Lee was in many ways the original MMA of the modern era, whereas Kali is the ancient warrior art of the Philippines. Guro Bob Breen wanted a simpler model. Something that would work for normal people yet have all the depth of the arts from which it was derived. He made the decision that 4D would concentrate on stand-up fighting; where all fights start and most end. The name 4D Combat came about as it compromised the four dimensions that happen in stand-up combat: STRIKING, CLINCHING, WEAPONS, GROUP ATTACK.
Bob Breen’s aim with 4D was for people to achieve mastery in their lifetime and on their own terms; the art had to suit you: It had to be simple, instinctive and work whatever the situation.
4D has the same game formats or templates for whatever you’re doing, which makes you faster mentally and when you’re faster, you get luckier.
