What is the Bihonte Combativos System?

The Bihonte (Bee-hon-te) Combativos System is a composite group of highly effective developed martial arts systems that combine to form a unique system of martial arts .

Bihonte means “Natural Law” or “Natural Motion or Natural Response”. Combativos is Portuguese  for Combatives.  The Bihonte system has as its core, five (5) unique martial arts systems that each focus on various aspects of hand to hand combat. These 5 systems include Mokuraiken Kempo which is emphasized by lightning fast strikes and low kicks, Jeet Kune Do (Bruce Lee’s method of kickboxing and Wing Chun), ShihKeafma (Filipino Stick and Blade Arts of Kali, Escrima and Arnis), Gracie Brazilian Jiu-jitsu/BJJ (specifically Pedro Sauer Gracie Jujitsu), and Hai Ki Chi Do,(Stand up Jiu-Jitsu).

Each of these standalone arts was developed and practiced by various martial arts masters and founders who sought to develop one highly effective martial arts system that would incorporate and complement each of the individual systems and yet allow for effective fighting methods which incorporated a blend of striking, kicking, throwing, takedowns, submissions, grappling, conditioning, joint locks, individual weapons training and weapon disarmament.

In addition to martial arts training the 54th Street Gym offers a Kick Boxing Boot Camp training program for men and women which is a unique form of heavy punching bag, focus mitt, thai pad, belly pad, shadow boxing and plyometrics designed to use the bodies own natural weight for conditioning. An excellent way to get in shape, stay in shape or improve your shape. This program also provides an excellent way to prepare yourself for the rigors of the martial arts curriculum taught at the 54th Street Gym.
