Guro Neil Medina AK Sweden
Before I started training in AK , I have been a pure empty handed guy with a background in Tang soo do, Muay thai, Sambo and Wing-Chun. Like many others I searched for a system that is pragmatic, efficient and corresponded with my own perception of combat. After coming across some videos on the net with Maestro Bong Abenir, I knew I found what I was looking for. So when the opportunity to have AK be brought to Sweden presented it self in 2015, I quickly seized it. Needless to say that my expectations were not only met but exceeded, making me a devoted practitioner of this illustrious art to this day.
