New AKBAN car sticker

After much debate we decided on a very minimalistic sticker, no high flying kicks, no Japanese flag, no martial arts themes – just black AKBAN.
You can get one from your instructor. Hurry, while they last.

Alexander Zhelezniak, or Alex as he insisted, demonstrated a superb battle form and comprehensive knowledge in western and oriental weapons and dominated the Dojo for more then an hour with real contact sword and spear fighting against many AKBAN veterans culminating in an amazing battle against three opponents all attacking in full speed with two handed western swords.
Alex and his top shape veteran students then continued in elaborating and explaining the simple and sound method they developed for MMA weapon sparring and learning.
This event marked another happy occasion for AKBAN veterans to keep learning from the best martial arts teachers in the world.

The ACT school of fighting specializes in several weapons: Katana, two handed European Sword, Spear, knife, Jo and many more. Sparring in the ACT tradition is done using exact replicas and restorations of the original weapons, mimicking weight and balance. All the fighting is full force full contact.
The veterans of ACT use ancient manuscripts and existing knowledge to check and restore past techniques and integrate these into a working method that is applicable in fighting, similar to what is being done in AKBAN.
The first AKBAN meisterhau seminar will take place this Saturday, the 10th of November in the Tel Aviv Dojo.
