Some can see the amazing skills in TACFIT Commando previews on youtube and be intimidated by how foreign the movements appear.
But, no, it’s not new. Thousands of years old actually - though now buttressed with modern science. The way we have been taught to train at a gym is the new kid on the block. Conventional gym training evolved out of the Victorian era at the turn of the 20th Century Britain. Whole bodily movement was considered “grotesque and vulgar” - so hips, legs and core were fixed rigidly in place as you can see from conventional calisthenics.
Then bodybuilding erupted out creating selectorized machines which could keep the body suspended while isolating one muscle group for growth. Taking it to its logical (far) extreme, we discovered quickly that the power of the human athlete is far greater than the sum of its parts, and the “functional training” renaissance began several decades ago.
But then we became a bit silly with a circus of irrelevant stunts, standing on stability balls while pressing kettlebells and playing the didgeridoo. Reality was required. Sobering reality. What were we “fit for”? That’s the ultimate question that we finally came around asking. Fit-ness demands answering - “fit for what?”
Martial artists for thousands of years had an answer to that question. They believe(d) that the physical readiness to respond to the most challenging predator in the history of the world - Man - was what they were becoming “fit for.”
And in our world of over-populated crises, we have now required the answer of tactical fitness again… TACFIT is defined as having the goal of “being able to acquire, refine and resolve any physical challenge with ease and imagination.” It doesn’t mean just hand to hand fighting, though for the real-life action-guys, that’s a definite issue. TACFIT prepares you for mentally, emotionally as well as physically navigating successfully through any physical crisis… to transcend being a neurological predator and become the master of one’s own physical excellence.
TACFIT Commando looks new to some - ancient to others, but regardless, new or old, you’ll transform yourself through your first mission. Only one day remains in order to accept the challenge.
