Z-Day is coming, are you prepared?
You’ve packed your bug-out bag, you’ve got your Survival Guide, and you know the truth behind the growing reports of “Bath Salts” and “Bird Flu”. But you still have to get out of the city alive! Our staff offers the best and most unique edged weapons training and combat acrobatics, and we will teach you how to hone these skills for when you need them most.
May is Zombie Awareness month! In order to prepare for the (hopefully) coming zombie hordes, the staff of Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts is proud to present a one day workshop on the key combat skills needed to survive the zombie apocalypse, based around three, simple truths of combating the Reanimate.
Rule One: Where there is one Zombie, there are a dozen.
Greg Mele, expert in Medieval weaponry and tactics, will show you how to put spear, sword and shield to use when the zombies horde swarms. Learn how to choose the best long weapons for the job, and how to form a phalanx, using teamwork to increase your chances for survival.
Rule Two: They WILL get close.
Keith Jennings, Chicago’s only full instructor in Martial Blade Concepts, will show you how to use small blade weapon tactics using both the machete and small folding knives to hunt down and destroy the walking dead. With the proper skill, these last ditch weapons can mean the different between life or undeath.
Rule Three: They keep coming! Sometimes your best offense is a good defense, also known as the RLH (RunLikeHell) method.
Brian Connely, stunt master of Asylum Stunts, will train you in advanced tumbling and evasion skills. When all of your weapons have failed you, and you find yourself surrounded by the undead, these evasion skills might be your only chance to escape and seek out your friends, or better yet, get to your weapon and turn the undead into dust.
No one knows when the Apocalypse will strike, so better to be prepared!
