Hi, I’m Martin. I’m the guy that runs this site, and I’m the creator of all the resources you can find here. I’ve been researching and teaching English Martial Arts for almost twenty years now, and for the last decade or so I’ve been focussing more and more on the unarmed arts.

My goal is to try and increase awareness of unarmed Historical European Martial Arts, and to encourage more people to take up pugilism around the world. There really isn’t a more complete unarmed system out there that dates back as far as this does.

If there’s anything you’d like to see here then please drop me a line, and don’t forget to sign up to my mailing list. That’s where all the cool free videos end up.

Take care
