A.C.T. is a full contact weapon fighting and self defense Israeli system , developed by Alexander Zhelezniak and Noah Gross. It was formalized and introduced to the world wide community 15 years ago. The system has been presented and taught (seminars , courses) in about 20 countries. A.C.T. is being taught on a regular basis in 15 countries up to date.
A.C.T. is about giving the student the tools to handle himself/herself in combat with and against weapons.
Translation? We teach people how to fight with weapons and effectively defend against them, whether the student is armed or unarmed.
Chief instructor and founder of A.C.T.
Alex has been doing martial arts for more than 20 years. He has some Judo and boxing training, studied Shotokan Karate , trained in Kendo, fencing, and Arnis. He has been doing ACT training for more than 15 years now and has been training in one aspect of weapon fighting or another every day of the past decade.
Alex has gained unique experience in this field by pitting himself against a wide range of opponents in full contact sparring with steel blunts, wooden wasters and padded simulators. All of this has resulted in him formulating his experience into a systematized method of fighting and training students to the best weapon fighters they can be.
