SAMI-X Panantukan at WTA

SAMI-X of NJ - Panantukan Workshop at WTA

Saturday Aug 10 1230pm to 2pm - This workshop will focus on SAMI-X Panantukan. Panantukan, translated as "street boxing" or "dirty boxing," focuses on unorthodox striking techniques, used for self defense, not sport. This will include entries, covers, different striking tools, manipulations, and destructions. One of the defining characteristics of Panantukan is its emphasis on close-range combat. Fighters of the art are trained to fight in tight spaces, using their body weight and momentum to generate power in their strikes. Panantukan also places a strong emphasis on footwork and body positioning, allowing fighters to move in and out of range and effectively evade attacks.
