Street Combatives Seminar

Practical Punch Defense and No-B.S. Antigrappling Skills So You Can Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones — Whether You're on Your Feet or Your Back

Violence doesn't just happen in Washington, D.C.

Rapes, robberies, murders, and unprovoked attacks are happening all over the United States.

Big cities. 

Small towns.

And everywhere in between.

In the past few years violent crime has happened more frequently and in more locations than it ever has in decades.

But if you've been reading the reports, watching the news, and paying attention to your own hometown, you probably have a good sense of this scary trend already.

So, the point of all this is to say that ...

Anyone can become a victim, anywhere at any time.

As you can see in the above video of recent urban ambushes, brutal violence happens everywhere.

Often the victim is blindsided by a vicious suckerpunch and — if he's not knocked out by the fall — gets beaten or stomped on as he struggles on the ground.

Basically, the formula is:

> Surprise haymaker
> Fall to the ground 
> Eat kicks to the face

So, how do you train to stop a violent attacker from pounding you into the pavement?

Combat sports athletes will tell you to practice Muay Thai, MMA, or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Traditional martial artists will advocate that you study Kung Fu or Karate to learn the "ancient fighting secrets."

Combatives instructors will say you need to train in a reality-based system like Krav Maga to stop a bad guy before he can take you to the ground.

The problem is that each of these instructors can only teach you a portion of what's needed to survive a violent urban ambush.

They each have some of the ingredients for self-defense, but not the entire recipe for total personal protection, because ...

On the street, there are no rules, no belt rankings, and no weight divisions. 

The What

We here at Tiga Tactics recognize that surviving an urban ambush requires a WELL-ROUNDED approach that works. Not just in theory, but on the streets.

That means having:

  • Effective grappling
  • Fight-ending strikes
  • Practical defenses against the most common attacks

That's why we're combining two of our popular programs — "Punch Defense 1.0" and "Antigrappling" — into one comprehensive event called the Street Combatives Seminar. 

That's right, you're getting TWO programs for the price of one.

This innovative 2-day, in-person seminar will offer practical and realistic training that's based on science, research, and how criminals actually attack.

At our event, you won't find sport-oriented techniques that only work on the mat.

Or flashy-looking combatives that fall apart after realistic pressure-testing.

Or martial arts myths based on outdated traditions.

Instead, you'll learn:

  • How to spot the warning signs of an urban ambush
  • How to stop a suckerpunch before it can knock you to the ground
  • How to stay dangerous if you do end up on your butt
  • How to get to your feet quickly (and safely) so you can flee or fight back.
  • And how to end a fight with these five primary strikes

And the best part is that this training is safe, fun, and effective.

The Who

This program is for anyone who's serious about learning how to handle the two most common scenarios in an urban ambush: defending against a surprise haymaker and stopping (or surviving) a takedown.

Whether you're a security guard working a dangerous assignment or a soccer mom who wants to know how to fend off a rapist, this 2-day event will give you the skills, the drills, and the will to come home safely.

The seminar is also ideal for military and law enforcement members who might find themselves in situations where shooting isn't justified. Or they've been caught off guard in bad-breath distance and can't deploy their firearm in time.

Also, this program will be a good refresher for boxers, grapplers, and martial artists who already have experience in the ring or on the mat, but are looking for a realistic perspective on how to apply their combat sports in a no-holds-barred confrontation on the street.

The When

This live and in-person event will take place on Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28, 2024.

Tentative training times will be:


  • 9 a.m. to noon
  • 1- hour lunch break
  • 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.


  • 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Where

We will be training face-to-face at the Academy of Traditional Asian Fighting Arts in Maryland:

“I had the pleasure of having Conrad Bui at my school for a seminar, and the man is a national treasure. He draws from an endless pool of knowledge gathered from some of the greatest living instructors.

"His excellent teaching style made it easy to learn even the most advanced concepts. Whether you were a brand-new beginner, or seasoned high-level instructor, there was something for everyone.”

Evan Perperis

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

"Over the last two decades training for all ranges of combat in the military and the civilian martial arts worlds, I have not found a more practical and effective system.

"I not only took their full suite of online courses but have also attended multiple seminars to refine my techniques.

"Their system makes great material for seasoned instructors looking to share a combatives program to their students or for beginners simply looking to improve personal protection."

Black Belt Magazine

"At Black Belt Magazine, we've been keeping an eye on Tiga Tactics for awhile now. Why? They keep bringing us the 'state-of-the-art' in self-defense and combatives programs."

Diego Herzog

4th-Degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu &
Bellator MMA Fighter

“Grappling and BJJ are complicated subjects. Getting a black belt is not easy, and Dr. Conrad Bui earned his black belt the hard way from me. He put in his time on the mats and in competition. As the first student to earn a black belt from me, Conrad has a warrior spirit and is very technical in the ground game. His well-rounded approach to martial arts in general makes him a first-class professor. Oss!"

Jeffrey Han

Performer, Producer & Poet — Los Angeles

“Patrick Vuong 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.

"Patrick is personable, patient, and truthful. He gives you the facts, and tailors the training to each student. His ability to break down complicated combative concepts into lessons anyone can understand is second to none. One of the best teachers I have ever had."
