The What

Tiga Tactics Combatives™ is a practical, effective, and (dare we say!) fun approach to self-defense.

Why is it practical and effective?

We do not teach martial arts myths, street-fight fallacies, or hypothetical scenarios. 

Our system of combatives is based on science (biomechanics and physiology) and years of researching the MOST COMMON street attacks committed by criminals, violent thugs, and the mentally unstable.

It took our co-founders a combined six decades of self-defense and martial arts training to create Tiga Tactics Combatives™ (TTC), only after earning instructor certifications (and not just dabbling) in 13 fighting systems (yes, thirteen!) and distilling only the BEST tactics and techniques for personal protection.

And why is training Tiga Tactics Combatives™ fun?

Because we realized that if practice isn't fun, you're not going to want to do it. If it's a chore? "Pass!" Too grueling or punishing? "I'd rather play on my phone."

So, while we take our personal protection seriously, we don't take ourselves too seriously. 

The Why

You can learn and teach the culmination of our combined 60-plus years of experience — Tiga Tactics Combativess™ — in a fraction of the time it took for us to create it.

Our aim is to give good people an edge against all the bad that’s going on in our crazy world today.

We’re looking for trainers who are passionate about making a difference in their communities.


Call us naïve, but we think that if we can help you better protect yourself and your loved ones, you’ll make your community safer. And, in turn, we’ll all make the world a little better.

Who Is This For?

Is this certification program for soldiers or soccer moms?

Perhaps police and security personnel? 

Or should it be for martial artists, gun enthusiasts, or survivalists? 

The answer is "yes."

What we mean is that ANYBODY can benefit by becoming a certified instructor, including but not limited to:

The average Joe or Jane: When seconds count, the police are minutes away. Civilians need an edge to protect themselves and their family against robbers, rapists, and murderers.

Here's what a new student said about us:

"What I liked was that you broke it down to really simple things so I can walk out of here remembering it. And I like that you did the research — that’s much more useful than anything like this that I’ve been to before."

— Arwen Dave
     Engineer from California

Law Enforcement: Any officer can tell you that current standards for defensive tactics at most agencies are lacking and better empty-hand options are greatly needed so there are fewer fatalities — on both sides of the law. 

Check out what a former police instructor said about Tiga Tactics Combatives™:

“I can say that the skills taught here were very much in line with my experience as a police officer. ... It can save your life.”

— Steven Barlow
     Former New York State Trooper

Military: What happens if a soldier's rifle jams? Or an attack happens in extreme close-quarters? Calling in the heavy artillery won't help then. 

This Special Forces soldier understand this, and that's why he trains with us:

"The two Tiga Tactics co-founders have an insane amount of experience and qualifications. As someone who regularly buys martial arts training content in digital format, this is one of the best ones I have seen."

— Evan Perperis
     U.S. Army Green Beret

Martial Artist: Traditional martial arts are fantastic for developing that warrior spirit, but at the same time one can always be more effective in a street self-defense situation. 

This martial arts master concurs with us after training in Tiga Tactics Combatives™:

"The simplicity of the techniques is what really impresses me. Not only is it simple, it gives me a high percentage of surviving these types of street ambushes."

— Sherman Chin
     7th-Degree Black Belt in Kajukenbo

Combat Sports Athlete: A trained boxer or MMA fighter can be deadly ... but would they know what to do on the streets if a bad guy came at them with a knife? Or a hammer? Not necessarily. 

That's why this pro MMA fighter and world champion grappler endorses our co-founder:

"Getting a black belt is not easy, and Dr. Conrad Bui earned his black belt the hard way from me. His well-rounded approach to martial arts in general makes him a first-class professor."

— Diego "Nosferatu" Herzog
     Bellator MMA Fighter
     4th-Degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt

Firearms Enthusiast: The gun is the ultimate equalizer. But even for concealed-carry weapon holders, most threats present themselves within 5 yards or less — that's fistfight range. They'll need empty-hand combatives to create space and time to earn their draw, which is why this firearms instructor trains with us:

"I loved the concept and approach to empty-hand combatives in a weapons-based environment, utilizing moves that have a high probability of success under stress and a low probability of injury."

— Matthew Baker
     Firearms Instructor

Regardless of your background, our training will only enhance and complement what you already know.

So long as you are of strong moral character and have a passion for helping others learn how to protect themselves and their loved ones, you can excel at Tiga Tactics Combatives™.

Who is Tiga Tactics?

Dr. Conrad Bui

Co-Founder | Chief Training Officer | Chief Bone-Cruncher

Dr. Conrad Bui is frequently featured in various international magazines, social media channels, and podcasts, because of his diverse training and experience.

He is a fifth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do and American Freestyle Karate.

Seeking to understand the use of common weapons, he started learning Kali in 1990 and eventually earned the rank of guro (instructor) in this deadly Filipino combat art, which specializes in stick and knife fighting.

As if that weren't enough, Dr. Bui later achieved certification as a senior instructor in both Silat Serak and Kuntao Silat de Thouars under legendary teachers from Southeast Asia who specialize in both empty-hand and weapon-based techniques in close quarters.

Along with his advanced rankings in bladed combat arts, he is also an instructor in Bruce Lee's scientific street-fighting system of Jeet Kune Do.

While he still practices all of those systems, Conrad is also a Muay Thai (kickboxing) coach at World Team USA and is a competitive black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

To round out his skillset, he has also spent time ducking haymakers and beer bottles when he pulled security duty as a bouncer at a biker bar

Patrick Vuong

Co-Founder | Chief Executive Officer | Chief Keyboard Pounder

Patrick started studying martial arts in 1995 and has taught women's self-defense since 2008.

He's an instructor in the bladed art of Pekiti-Tersia Kali, which uses a wide range of blunt, bladed, and bareknuckled weapons.

Patrick also holds black belts in Kenpo Karate and Southern Shaolin Kung, and is a certified handgun instructor. 

If that weren’t enough, he also served as the senior editor of Recoil Magazine, where he had the honor of studying under some of the country’s elite warriors, including current and former members of the U.S. Army Special Forces and the U.S. Navy SEALs.

And as a subject-matter authority, Patrick is often asked by international publications like Concealment Magazine, Black Belt Magazine, and Knives Illustrated to write about real-world self-defense.

Together, our two co-founders have achieved more than a whole cadre of instructors might accomplish in a lifetime:

  • We have fought in combat sports and won numerous championships across different competitions.

  • We’ve invested countless hours over 15 years to study real footage of vicious street violence, including stabbings, clubbings, and beatings.

  • We’ve spent thousands of dollars on training, attending seminars, reading books, and watching videos.

  • We’ve trained tactical firearms and combatives with elite warriors, from SWAT officers to U.S. Navy SEALs.

  • We’ve pulled security duty as a bouncer at a biker bar.

  • And we’ve earned black belts (or the equivalent) in not one, not two, not five, but 13 self-defense systems!


We’ve put in two lifetimes of training, pressure-testing, and science-based research so that … 

... you DON’T have to!

The How

Like our self-defense training, the path to becoming a Tiga Tactics Combatives™ instructor is simple … but not necessarily easy. 

You'll need to set goals, put in regular practice, and exhibit a certain level of fitness. But physical attributes aren’t the only requirements. 

Every certified instructor must also demonstrate a strong moral code, a high level of integrity, and an open-minded attitude

On top of that, you must be able to teach efficiently to a wide range of students and have the leadership skills to supervise your own training group.

Here’s the path to becoming a certified Tiga Tactics Combatives™ instructor:

Step 1:
Enroll in this Instructor Certification Program.

Step 2:
Study and memorize the three Level 1 Flagship Courses that are included in this certification program:

  • Knife Defense 1.0
  • Punch Defense 1.0
  • Impact Weapon Defense 1.0

Then, be able to not only demonstrate all of the key techniques from each course but also have the verbal and interpersonal skills to teach them to other students.

Step 3:
Schedule an Instructor Certification Exam and pass the test with a score of 80% or higher.

The Where

Exams can take place at any of our in-person seminars held throughout the year. Enrollment to one of our seminars will automatically waive the exam fee.

If you are unable to attend a seminar in person, an online exam via Zoom can be arranged after the exam fee of $100 has been paid.

What Are The Instructor Rankings?

If you successfully pass the Instructor Certification Exam with a score of 80% or higher, you will receive an assistant instructor certificate that same day and join a growing cadre of passionate teachers who want to make their communities safer, one student at a time.

Over time through dedication and hard work, you can get promoted to the upper levels of TTC.

Here’s a look at our ranking structure: 

  • Assistant Instructor
  • Associate Instructor
  • Full Instructor
  • Advanced Instructor
  • Senior Instructor

Having trained in self-defense for more than 6 decades, our two co-founders have seen many a black belts rest on their laurels. 

This often leads to a quick descent into subpar performance, mediocre teaching ability, and a disappointing lack of physical fitness.

Remember, training for a surprise street assault is made up of a wide and deep set of perishable skillsets — if you don’t use them, you lose them.

Therefore, each instructor’s certificate — regardless of rank — expires after 3 years and must be renewed at an in-person seminar (or via an online exam). This is to ensure our high level of standards and integrity in our instructors and our Tiga Tactics tribe as a whole.

The addition of your name to our official list of instructors guarantees to the world that you are not only knowledgeable in personal protection but is someone who continually sharpens one’s skills and seeks to improve — to the betterment of all involved.

What Are the Benefits of Being a TTC Certified Instructor?

Tiga Tactics Combatives™ will teach you our primary counterstrikes, whether you're facing an unarmed criminal or a knife-wielding psycho.

So, aside from becoming more dangerous much more quickly and being capable of defending yourself while unarmed against a violent criminal or meth-addled lunatic who's ambushing you with a suckerpunch, a hammer, or an edged weapon ...

  • FREE 30-Minute Trouble-Shooting Consultation (Value: $100): We normally charge $200 per hour for private training or personalized consultation. But during your path to certification, we will hold a private one-on-one Zoom session for 30 minutes so you can ask about anything you’re having problems as you get ready for your Instructor Certification Exam. This is a fantastic opportunity to get personalized tips and feedback that would otherwise cost a premium.

Our Instructor Certification Program will teach you the most common attacks you'll face on the street, including the suckerpunch.

The Instructor Certification Program includes our THREE Level 1 Flagship Courses (Knife Defense 1.0, Punch Defense 1.0, and Impact Weapon Defense 1.0) ...

... which would normally cost $1800 when bundled together (each program by itself is $600). 

When you add in all of these bonuses, this package is worth a total value of $2842.

But, for a very limited time ... 

We're offering this Instructor Certification Program and all of its FREE bonus materials for only $897.

That's a SAVINGS of $1945!

I’m sure we can all agree that your life, the lives of your loved ones, and the safety of your students are worth much more than this investment of $897.

But hurry, because this offer is only good for the next 50 buyers.

After the 50th enrollment, the price goes back up.

But, in case you still have any doubts, just read what one of our students, Evan Perperis, had to say about us:

“The Tiga Tactics instructors' logic is sound and based off the equivalent of several lifetimes of martial arts training. I can recognize their logic path because I used it overseas, but for a different application. 

"During my deployments to Iraq, my platoon was the most effective in our Battalion at finding enemy weapons caches. We would find them frequently without any direct informant tips. The reason was simple — we put ourselves in the enemy’s shoes.

"The same logic I used in combat, Tiga Tactics has applied to everyday life here in America. If you are looking to get functional ASAP, check out Tiga Tactics now.”

What People Are Saying About Us

Tim MacWelch

Survival Expert and Author of Multiple Bestselling Survival Manuals

"Self-defense shouldn't be limited to the 'best' of us, it should be for the 'rest of us. So whether you're in great shape (or not), you should still take the initiative to learn how to protect yourself and those you love — and Tiga Tactics is the best place I can recommend."

Evan Perperis

U.S. Army Special Forces Soldier & Obstacle Course Race Champion

“Patrick Vuong and Dr. Conrad Bui bring the course material in an easy-to-understand and fun manner. The two of them have an insane amount of experience and qualifications. As someone who regularly buys martial arts training content in digital format, this is one of the best ones I have seen.”

Willie "The Bam" Johnson

Martial Arts Legend & 7-Time World Champion

“Conrad Bui is one of the humblest martial artists I know. His experience as a reality-based self-defense instructor stands out above many. I recommend him to anyone seeking innovative training.”

Jeffrey Han

Performer, Producer, Poet — Los Angeles

“Patrick Vuong of Tiga Tactics brings a wealth of martial arts experience paired with a practical mindset. He cuts the unnecessary fluff and gets to the methods and techniques that could one day save your life."

Emily Chen

Firearms Instructor & Competitive Shooter

"The reason why I sought out Tiga Tactics is because I wanted to know that whatever skills I'd learn can help save my life. I've practiced various martial arts throughout my lifetime, and most of what I learned felt more like "art", and didn't provide me with any confidence to be able to defend myself. Today, I carry a confidence I'd never known. I feel more in control of my body because of everything I've learned and been tested."
