Alex has been doing martial arts for 30 years. He has Judo and boxing experience, trained in Shotokan Karate, Kendo, fencing, Arnis, Kobudo. He has been training in full contact weapon fighting and teaching every day of the past two decades.
Alex has gained unique experience in this field by pitting himself against a wide range of opponents in full contact sparring with steel blunts, wooden wasters and padded simulators. All of this has resulted in him formulating his experience into a systematized method of fighting and training students to the best weapon fighters they can be.
“ Fight as you Teach, Teach as you Fight”
This is what essentially makes A.C.T so authentic and a modern Mixed Martial Arts system. All the fighters - students and teaches alike fight to test them selves under full contact condtions. You can not consider yourself an A.C.T practitioner unless you spar. A.C.T is not about talking or explaining, It is about doing and proving what is real through that act of full contact combat with safe weapon trainings such as the Spatha Knife.
