I have been privately training with Combat Tactics Group for about a year now. You can tell that Henry Ly (the senior instructor) knows what he is talking about. He is extremely patient, and accommodating. He spends time making sure you understand the importance of what he is trying to teach you, and how it applies in an actual combat situation.
With his countless years of martial arts experience, he has developed a system of fighting that is effective, practical, and fun. Blending weapons and non weapons training together you find soon enough that his method of teaching is working, as your body seems to react almost without thinking when sparing. You are given many tools from many different fighting styles, there is no emphasis on making sure you stick with one style over another.
CTG wants its students to be able to utilize and interchange all the skills they teach at any given time. It is this practical blending of fight systems that sets CTG apart from other schools. The instructors of CTG are always bringing new information and styles to its students.The fact that you are actually learning something useful is what keeps you coming back for more, as opposed to other schools that spend so much time focusing structure, belts, and calling your instructor Sensei.
It basically boils down to this: Combat Tactics Group is a no BS school for people interested in real life practical self defense, taught in a relaxed comfortable setting by knowledgeable instructors.
It’s a good place. The techniques taught there are elegant. They worked very well when I (had to) use them, and they were very simple to learn and also hard to forget.
Class time has been spent in a very efficient way, so there was quite lots of practice on situations which were very close to real. There was some blood, too. I’m just kidding.
It’s always good to make most of the mistakes in classes rather than in real situations. And I think CTG has done a very good job on making sure everyone performed the moves correctly and fluidly. Imagine going to ballet classes.
Truly understand the stuff that one is doing is very important in order to do it right. So it’s not only the amount of practice but also the friendly instructions on the details that help people master the techniques.
I’m a practical person, so I want to mainly talk about the practical aspect of my experience with CTG. There were more factors about CTG that made me feel good after every time I finished a class. It’s one of the place where people can learn and appreciate MMA.
Combat Tactics is something I value the most. There class are realistic and work in all situations that I have been face with. Your taught at slow understandable pace in a atmosphere that is comfortable and not military strict. I can tell you from experience i have been training for 9 months and its been a helpful experience. All the techniques and combination drills have helped me see martial arts and health in a hole new level. Its come to the point where i can look at MMA or go to a martial arts tournament and know the Do and Dont’s. They young adults and adults of all races. Every one either has no background or some background in martial arts.
Their private class teaches more in-depth lessons and can really redefine any issues your have. Unlike other schools. No lesson is a waste, I have used all of them in my daily life at one point or a other.They teach core JKD and have mixed it up to be efficient and to the point. They teach everything from boxing to savate to silat and to wing chun the list goes on but there all integrated and taught to be used to fit the situation and combined to create a strong foundation. There up to date and informed on various martial arts and styles and concepts and on health.
This Martial arts will test you and bring the most realistic scenarios of 1 versus 1, 1 versus 2 and, even 1 versus 3 and so on. So go ahead and call and schedule a appointment and experience a martial arts will help you create a stronger body and sharper mind. Farewell
Henry Ly’s (main instructor) training techniques are tailored for each student; he analyzes strengths and weaknesses and crafts a strategy for improvement. He’s dedicated, knowledgeable, and patient. He’s both a tremendous fighter and great teacher – two traits one rarely finds in an mma instructor.
I recently did a seminar with Henry Ly. It was professional, hands on, and very practical. I took a lot away from it. I will be training with this Instructor again, and highly recommend training with him.
