Martial Research

Documentation and Research in AKBAN

We strive to balance tradition with adaptability and innovation, particularly in modern conflict scenarios. This is achieved through meticulous analysis of techniques, motivations, and force multipliers, all structured within our Methodical Pyramid model. This has led us to build the whole field of family defense and security.

AKBAN's founder, Yossi Sheriff, emphasizes autonomic, self-sustaining practice communities that have thrived for decades. Our focus on the complexities of the Israeli situation led to the development of an Emotion Regulation system. This system employs feedback loops and AI to accelerate learning, catering to both security professionals and families.

Researching Modern Weapons

Our extensive AKBAN wiki database utilized semantic queries to categorize techniques by their level of violence, damage potential, and counter-strategies. We have shifted and now use advanced AI alignment in gathering insights for conflict resolution from this database.

At the core of our approach is a practical, open-minded perspective on martial arts. We stress-test every technique and integrate elements from various disciplines, including Western martial arts and weapons. Skills from BJJ and MMA were also incorporated into our primarily Japanese syllabus because they present a good way to spar without injury.
