Haven’t you wanted to do the takedowns from your favorite Action movie? It’s time to take the first step towards that goal! This special seminar will start with a warm up followed by a pre-workout to get moving (and sweaty). Following that we’ll move into a variety of takedowns that can be done safely with slight modifications (A takedown is a technique that involves taking an opponent off-balance and bringing them to the ground, typically with the attacker landing on top).
We’ll have a short dinner break before moving into ACROfights. This portion of the seminar will cover acrobatic and acrobalance moves before moving into some of the flips, twists and tricks of your favorite action films.
