« Sam is an excellent martial arts/self-defense teacher - he is direct and knowledgeable yet approachable and understanding. Apart from taking karate lessons in second grade, I had no experience with any sort of martial arts training. Despite this, Sam made me feel welcome and completely capable. After training with Sam, I felt confident and self-empowered. I highly recommend Sam as a teacher! »

Develop your defense with Tabimina Balintawak: On time, on target, random and under stress.

Methodology

In Tabimina, defense is priority. We are much quicker to react than to anticipate, so the training develops the student's reaction to an attack as opposed to anticipating. This is achieved by accessing "Zero Mind", a meditative state where the individual is able to respond appropriately to a perceived threat.

The training is entirely one-on-one so that the feeder (teacher) can provide a direct stimulus to their receiver (student) and identify any necessary corrections. As the receiver's defense gets stronger, the teacher provides a more stressful stimulus. Thus, the student overcomes innate "detrimental responses" and react appropriately, all while increasing the amount of pressure the student can comfortably perform under.

Background

After earning my bachelors in psychology, I traveled around the United States. This journey lead me to Tabimina Balintawak, a Filipino martial art that emphasizes defense by developing an appropriate response to a perceived threat. While I had minimal experience with martial arts, I tried it, and have since made it my passion and ambition to dive as deep into this art as possible.

Samuel is a fellow practitioner of the art we train in. He always brings a warm welcome wherever he is present. This person is always on time, a very quick learner and is open to suggestions and opinions. I highly recommend Samuel and I'm sure he will be a teacher worth training with.
