More about American Kinetica: The goal of Kinetica is to provide an alternative study of self defense. Based upon simple engineering principles and an understanding of human kinetics. So one can explore and execute an interaction with an opponent where the results are to defuse the energy of the attitude, movement and intent in a spontaneous physical interaction.

We are introducing an alternative self-defense choice with Kinetica, providing such a choice to bridge the gap between  verbal judo and combat. To see the value in this concept we must further define the types of physical confrontations that fit in an alternative self-defense response. To name but a few, these confrontations include: A drunken friend or family member; a school bully who might push, hit or restrain; or legal concerns about responding with physical violence to resolve the situation. Kinetica is a self-defense formula. However, it is not a style of Martial Arts, but rather a new category developed to provide a passive solution towards an aggressive outburst, the Paxtial Arts (peaceful arts). Kinetica’s primary focus is to establish a win/win outcome – where the fighting arts or aggressive physical philosophy is a win / lose outcome.
