Zulu Kai is a fighting philosophy. The martial arts are broken up into four components: Striking, Grappling, Self Defense, and Weapons. Out of each of the four components comes a unique style. What makes a style a style, is the area of combat that it focuses on, a specialty. This is why Zulu Kai isn’t a style, because it focuses on street and sport hand to hand combat, period! Its aim is to defeat an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to strike with maximum leverage, and not getting hit. If this strategy fails, it is equipped to adapt to the situation at hand. You will gain knowledge and skills in punches, kicks, elbow strikes, knee strikes, head butts, finger strikes, standing grappling, throwing, tripping, locking, choking, target pressure points, use of weapons, defense against weapons, true knowledge and application of strategy, sport combat rules, street combat reality, persistence, determination, ethics, laws, sparring, body conditioning, speed agility & quickness, and develop an attitude of open mindedness and humility. Remember, one who needs to force a particular combat situation is not as prepared as one who is ready for any combat situation.
