With over 40 years of combined experience in the fighting arts, Tony & Michael have combined their knowledge and skills to develop the Ascendancy Fight System.
Both forged out of real street-fight confrontations, taught early on the difference between a studio and real life, we have built on our shared experiences as primary and assistant instructors in various fields, growing in both theory and practice.
Together, we have studied a plethora of combat-based martial arts from many cultures and times. From traditional Japanese Ju Jutsu to South Korean Hapkido, through to European wrestling and weapon skills, past sport-based martial arts (like Tae Kwon Do, Kickboxing, and Aikido), and into gun ranges and modern video courses for law enforcement and military usage.
We are the founders of the Martial Masters Academy, and are passionate about self-defense, martial arts, good instruction, high production values, and the usefulness of video learning.
