The festival will focus and teach tactical self-defence using palms, punches, elbows, knees and kicks to defend against various strikes, chokes, grabs and extreme threats involving weapons such as sticks, knives and others. Sessions will have pressure induced-adrenalin based-live scenarios to put you under real-life stress conditions and tested at the end of each training program during the festival.
This is to promote healthy and active civilians in communities while creating opportunities for social interaction as a key objective that encourages and celebrates safety, fitness and family togetherness in a fun and positive way.

The festival will bring together International tactical experts, men, women, children, students, groups, schools, martial arts clubs or individuals, organizations and corporate bodies to explore strategies and trends which span all aspects of safety from awareness to prevention management. The festival does not discriminate with respect to size, age, race, religion, sex or martial arts background because it welcomes and appreciates all. 

Experts will practically explain each technique and principles digestively to the understanding of each participant. Instructions will be delivered authoritatively and explained so clearly that even dummies can catch on and become real experts in a fun and positive way. We also ensure that students will align with evidence-based prevention and positive development practice.

Mr Lord, finally stated that “since failure to prepare is preparing to fail, learning and practising of awareness and crime prevention skills will provide individuals with information to reduce their risk of exposure to violence and other emergencies.”
