Fight Hacker Hybrid: Escapeology & Uncut | November 23-24, 2024 | Leesburg, FL


Escapeology: the science of relocating from place of disadvantage to a place of opportunity. 

Plus: “Uncut” reality of mitigating bladed encounter- without unnecessary baggage of cultural heritage and weight of the “system”. 

Forward Training Concepts “Fight Hacker hybrid: Escapeology & Uncut” is a 2 day (16 hour) hybrid instructional class focused on 2 areas of studies:

  • understanding, actualizing and building functional principles, concepts and skills of purposeful movement – both unarmed and armed applications, while progressing from disadvantageous position/situation to dominating the fight. 
  • interdisciplinary approach to concepts, principles and skills for dealing with, surviving and prevailing in a bladed encounter. 


Escape is often perceived as disengagement, retreat, as “running away”. 

In a context of trained applicable tactic, escape is a controlled reset of the initiative. 

Loading the process of that reset with robust proactive measures and trained and pressure tested multi-disciplinary skills transforms it from hasty retreat into wholesome, quick and seamless transition to situation of opportunity and domination.  


Concepts and skills of movement, workspace, structure and gap management are paired with understanding of biomechanics and offensive blade work. These are geared to start building robust, pressure tested abilities to survive initial contact and create opportunities for proactive work, weapon deployment or disengagement.
