Tony Jackson is the founder and chief instructor of MeanStreak, a reality based martial art system that teaches the students effective techniques that can be used in a combat situation.
The whole emphasis of MeanStreak was simple :
- The techniques have to be very easy to learn and execute
- They have to cause maximum impact for minimal effort
Tony has been a martial art student for over 36 years and has studied many different fighting styles and systems, with black belts in Kung Fu, Karate and Kickboxing.
Other styles he has trained are: Shaolin Chin Na, Eagle Claw, Krav Maga, Aikido, Jujitsu & Catch Wrestling and has ‘pressure tested’ his knowledge as a doorman!
The system allows you to put as much pain and discomfort onto your opponents body as required for the situation through use of pressure points and nerve strikes.
You will be taught to get a reaction where ever you hands are It may be just enough to make them flinch so it alters their body position to allow enough space to complete the finishing move, or it may be such a painful strike that you get them to submit anyway.
Most martial arts are sports based and designed for tournaments and point scoring, so they have banned a lot of "excessive use of force" techniques. A sparring match usually lasts on average about 2-3 minutes. This system is street-based and on the street there are no points - it's win or lose. So all those banned techniques are the sort of things we need to be using and we want to be ending that fight within 10 seconds max….
