Combat STRIKING System
TRITAC-Combat Striking focuses on developing striking-based skill-sets that allow you to defend against a variety of street and sport based attacks including punches, kicks, knees, elbows, etc – and gives you the ability to respond instinctively and naturally with a diverse attacking “arsenal”. TRITAC-Combat Striking truly turns your whole body into a weapon. Everything about you becomes a dangerous tool that can finish your opponent(s) at any moment.

Influenced by Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Silat, Keysi Fighting Method, Defence Lab and Filipino Martial Arts (to name a few), the TRITAC-Combat Striking System was designed to be as instinctive yet efficient as possible; using natural, flowing body movements and mechanics that can be made without much thought or planning, while still capitalizing on strength, speed, and accuracy.

You can’t fight if you can’t move – learn movement, stance, and essential mechanics for fighting.
  •  FIGHTING PLATFORM: Your Fighting Platform includes your various fighting stances, hand positions and one of the most important aspects of TRITAC – the Fence. Develop the skills to be prepared to defend and respond to any attack.
  •  FOOTWORK: Footwork, Footwork, Footwork – it is the secret to all martial arts. You may have the best punch in the world – but if you don’t know how to move fluidly and efficiently in a a fight, you will lose.
  •  KNEELING, SEATED, LYING (LEVEL FLOW): Even though TRITAC-Combat Striking focuses on the striking arts – the ability to defend against and attack when you are kneeling, sitting, or lying is equally important. You need the skills to move and respond effectively to keep yourself “fighting”.
"Defense First" is a strong principle of TRITAC. If you can’t defend against attacks, how can you even fight?
  •  SLIPS & HEAD MOVEMENT: Why block a punch or an attack if you don’t have to? Slipping and head movement skills are essential for defending against a variety of strikes.
  •  TRITAC FRAME DEFENSE: Influenced by the old Keysi Fighting Method – TRITAC Frames provide you with a solid “Framework” to defend and attack at the same time.
  •  PARRIES & TRAPS: Parries and hand traps are an essential skill-set when learning how to counter-strike effectively and when “smashing & entering”. They nullify your opponent’s defense and allow you to counter and flow into your attacking response.
  •  GRAB & CLINCH DEFENSE: Clinching the opponent can be used to eliminate the opponent's effective usage of some kicks, punches, and mêlée weapons. The clinch can also be used as a medium to switch from stand-up fighting to ground fighting by using takedowns, throws or sweeps.
Your body is like a “Swiss Army Knife” – full of tools (weapons) that you can use to attack and finish your opponent.
  •  PUNCHES: Our punching skill-sets come directly from the Western Boxing world. You will learn all the types of punches, including combinations to make your punching skills well-rounded and effective in all situations.
  •  HAMMER, CHOPS & SLAPS: Hammer strikes are very powerful devastating strikes. They come at odd angles, hit like a “hammer”, and are very effective in sport and street combatives.
  •  KICKS & KNEES: In TRITAC, kicks are used as long and medium range weapons to disable opponents, maintain distance, and create opportunities for additional strikes. Knee strikes are close-range devastating weapons that easily drop your opponent or setup a finish. Influenced by Muay Thai and Kyokushin Karate, our kicks and knees are delivered with power, and brutal efficiency.
  •  TRITAC-FRAMES & ELBOWS: The TRITAC-Frames are unique components of the TRITAC System. Influenced by Keysi Fighting Method, Muay Thai and Dirty Boxing; they are used to Smash & Enter and destroy your opponents defenses.
  • HEADBUTTS & SHOULDER: Headbutts are very powerful weapons that are used in extreme close quarters combat. Our Shoulder-attack series are also close range weapons used to create space and setup takedowns & throws.
  • ... LET’S GET DIRTY: TRITAC is more than just a framework for developing sportive-based skill-sets; it’s also about street combat and survival situations where you must do ALL that you can to fight, defend, protect, and survive. This means “dirty tactics” that quickly change the outcome of a fight.
Used as both offensive and defensive tactics, smashing & entering allows you to safely and effectively close  the distance in hand to hand combat.
  •  BRACE FRAMES: Braced Framing is a high protection “guard” that is both defensive and offensive. They are your base-layer of entering into close quarters combat range to clinch, shield, takedown, and continue to Smash and Bash
  •  SPLIT FRAMES: Split Frame Entries are elusive and dynamic entries that create openings for elbow clears, clinches, arm controls and back attacks. They are “high-damage” entries that use aggressive elbow strikes and movements to slash, destroy and enter.
  •  HAMMERS & TRAPS: Hammer Strikes create “smashing” entries that give you the power to blast through your opponents guards and attacks. Hammer strike movements open up lines for traps that give you superior control over your opponent to shield, takedown or finish.
  •  ELBOW CLEARS: Elbow clears are combined with TRITAC Frames are skills used to “clear” arms combined with strikes to enter into different areas of the body. Excellent for moving around the body and connecting to arms & legs.
  • DRAGS & DUCKS: Skill-sets drawn from Wrestling and Japanese Jujitsu that utilize arm drags, 2 on 1 control entries, and clinch wrestling to enter into close range.
  • LEG ENTRIES: Enter in on and attack the legs with low-level attacks the provide opportunities for takedowns, body-lock controls and shielding.
Manipulate your opponent by controlling various weak points on the body. Remember, where the head goes, the body follows.
  •  HEAD CLINCH: Clinches that manipulate and control the head, neck, and head & single-arm. These controls setup a variety of fight-ending throws & takedowns; powerful shields that provide high mobility, and setup chokes and cranks to end the fight quickly.
  •  BODY LOCKS: Body-Locks provide control and manipulation of your opponents hips. These high-protection controls provide you simple options for trips and Japanese Jujitsu throws as well the ability to maneuver and shield with your opponent.
  •  BACK CONTROLS: Back Controls are arguably one the best controls to have in a fight – whether on the street or in the cage. They provide opportunities for additional strikes, chokes & cranks, as well as the ideal shield position against multiple opponents.

Real learning requires support from instructors and fellow students. What makes TRITAC different, is that we're here for you! We want to make sure that you're learning and developing the right way.
Sorry, can't disclose the secrets in the bonus lessons--you'll just have to find out yourself!
The importance of training outside the gym as well as visualizing techniques:
It's important to supplement your training with visualization when you are away from the gym. As you know, it takes continuous
practice to become proficient in self-defense. TRITAC uses natural body movements and mechanics, which is why it is so simple to
learn and extremely effective. The more you train, practice, and visualize techniques, the faster these movements will become
instinctive -- a reflex that you won't have to think about, you will just react.

Our training videos give you what you need to visualize techniques and keep them fresh in your mind. You can access the instructional videos from anywhere in the world instantly at any time.

What Are People Saying About TRITAC?
"The style is both realistic and animalistic, just like the streets"
"TRITAC training is more than a fighting style, it’s a realistic mindset. It allows a person to train their body and mind transforming him/her into a more confident and aware individual. The style is both realistic and animalistic, just like the streets. Being a student, I am better able to protect myself, my family, and the public. It is another tool that I have added to my arsenal."

Michael B.
Federal Agent, Department of Homeland Security
"The TRITAC Team are fantastic Instructors with incredible enthusiasm, patience and skill"
"Having always been interested in taking up a Martial Art, I started training TRITAC with very little experience. Now almost seven months in, I have to say I could not be happier with my choice. John Leabo, Matt Bryers, and the TRITAC Team are fantastic Instructors with incredible enthusiasm, patience and skill. They are very good at what they do and even better at Instructing."

Michael P.
New York City Police Officer
"I’ve never seen a system this comprehensive"
"I’ve been training online in TRITAC-Combat Grappling for a few months now and I must say I’m really impressed. I’ve been doing martial arts for over 10 years and I’ve never seen a system this comprehensive. It’s literally impossible not to learn by all the resources they have put available."

David H.
TRITAC-Grappling / TRITAC-Striking Student
"Training is dynamic, aggressive and is 100% street effective"
"As a police officer I take my training seriously. For me its a matter of life and death. Having studied almost every martial art available, I found most were missing something. They lack realism. They lack multiple threat engagements. They lack true effectiveness. TRITAC is the answer for these concerns. Training is dynamic, aggressive and is 100% street effective. John Leabo has given me the skill, knowledge and confidence to survive the streets night after night. I believe in John’s teachings and methodologies of urban survival. He is a modern day 'Doctore,' a trainer of gladiators."

Peter B.
Sergeant, New Jersey Police
"I have gained confidence in my ability to defend myself, my wife and my son"
"The TRITAC Martial Arts Systems are just cool! I have lost over 25lbs just training, but most importantly I have gained confidence in my ability to defend myself, my wife and my son. It's also just a lot of fun to train and learn! I have tried other martial arts before, but never saw anything this effective."
