Can I practice this style of self defense by myself?

Yes. Training focuses on developing your reflexes to protect yourself to give you an automatic response to any attack, without practicing with a partner. This is the best way to learn. We include a 'Quick Start Guide' with the video to show you how to use the video for immediate results.

How much can I learn since the videos are not very long?

Extreme Combat is to Hikuta, what a foundation is to a house. A very important beginning, that can be built upon with many great things. Extreme Combat demonstrates how to use your reflexes for self defense. So when something happens, your new reflex will be to defend instantly using a very powerful strike or kick, so in essence you'll learn a radical amount of information on how to protect yourself.

Does Hikuta use blocking? I didn't see any in the training materials.

Hikuta is a continuous attack system that doesn't use blocks. Blocking is an extra move that delays the end of any confrontation. When attacked by a group, blocking is especially dangerous because it requires the defender to spend more time engaging each attacker. So, at some point, no matter how fast the defender moves, one of the attackers will end up behind the defender, hitting the defender on the back of the head or knocking him down.

What was it like training with DOK Lee? How good a fighter was he?

The first time that Al walked through DOK Lee’s front door, he placed a telephone book into his hands and asked him to put it on his chest. He then placed his fingertips on the phone book and literally exploded the most powerful strike Al had ever felt right through it. The shockwave that traveled through the phone book exploded into his chest slamming him backwards so hard that Al almost fell on the floor. From that day forward, including all the times Al stayed at his home, DOK Lee shared extensively with him his knowledge of combat. There were times where Al felt like the Karate Kid, studying under Mr. Miyagi. He helped DOK Lee plant and harvest vegetables in his garden, he put out feed for deer and other wild animals, as well as helping cook and with shopping. After each trip to visit DOK Lee, Al spent months sorting and organizing all the information that he gave him. Overall Al spend more than 2,000 hours arranging everything he taught him about Kuta. In regard to his fighting skills, Al said that while DOK Lee was alive, the U.S. government considered him one of the most dangerous men in the world in hand to hand combat.

Why did you choose Hikuta? What impressed you about it?

Al was tired of the complex nature of martial arts and he was looking for a way to instantly end a fight. He realized that real life the attackers don’t come at you one at a time like in the movies. He knew he needed quick and powerful moves to defeat a group attack, which was one of his main concerns. When he tried Hikuta he was able to learn it very quickly. He was also able to move quicker and Hikuta helped him add his bodyweight to this new quickness. He knew that quickness and power are needed to instantly end a fight, especially if he was outnumbered. He was amazed how easy it was to learn Hikuta.

Why isn't Hikuta more popular?

Hikuta is an art developed for the protection of the worlds elite. And so it was never promoted in Martial arts movies or taught to anyone for monthly lessons. There are no Hikuta dojos or gyms so Hikuta has been a well kept secret.

What is Hikuta similar to?

The Dynamic Delivery System™ of Hikuta, as well as Hikuta strikes and kicks share very little, if any similarity to martial arts. The specialists who developed Hikuta studied everything about the human body to take maximum advantage of its capabilities. Military close quarters combat shares a similarity to Hikuta in that it uses gross motor skills and simplicity.

Where is training offered?

Who has been trained by your organization?

What is the meaning of Hikuta and where did it come from?

The word Hikuta means 'highlights of Kuta'. The word Hikuta was coined by DOK Lee in approximately 1993 for a marketing effort that included the release of a short book and video giving a brief glimpse of the professional art of Kuta. The word ‘Kuta’ means ‘extreme violence that comes from within’. The origin of the professional art of Kuta dates back to ancient Egypt. The earliest known history is that Kuta was provided to the bodyguards of pharaoh to protect him and his court. Then just before Egypt divided into an upper and lower kingdom, the group, known as Kublers, that provided Kuta to the bodyguards began a journey that led them deep into China. They remained there for almost two thousand years. Then the Kublers migrated into Europe. Throughout their existence the Kublers maintained a code of silence where they shared very little of their knowledge of Kuta. In 1998, two years before the death of DOK Lee, Al began sharing Kuta with others, with the full blessing and encouragement of DOK Lee.

Is private training available?

Yes. Call us for more information. (866) 276-3350.

How long would it take to become effective with Hikuta?

A few hours. Basically after a one-day Hikuta seminar and four months of home practice (Twenty minutes for three times each week), a person should be able to defend in just about any situation using Hikuta. Certain portions of this training they will be able to perform the same day they learn it. "In just one hour of Hikuta training I learned just as much as I did in three years of martial arts training." Dave Johnson

What kind of shape would I have to be in to learn Hikuta?

You don't need to be in excellent shape to learn Hikuta. It uses bodyweight (gross motor skills), and quick movement (the startle reflex) so that anyone regardless of their weight, height, gender or condition can learn how to get home safe. Anyone can learn Hikuta in a short period of time and be very effective at defending him or herself.

What can I get from this training?

You can learn how to stop a violent attack before it begins by knowing the many early warning signs and also how to be very alert. You can also learn how to stop a surprise attack, defend others, and defend against a group.

Will I learn how to fight?

No. You will learn how to end a fight or stop it before it begins. You will not use a stance or any rules that are associated with "reality" fighting.

Why is the natural movement used by Hikuta beneficial for self-defense?

Natural movement is more comfortable and easier to learn and perform. Being able to move naturally will help you move quicker to end a fight, and moving quicker may determine whether or not you survive.

Is there a way to defend against a blind-sided (surprise) attack?

Yes. We teach you how to respond very quickly with your natural reflexes to defend yourself. You won't want to miss this technique!

Who trained Al in the art of Kuta (Hikuta)?

D.O.K. Lee trained Al after Al wrote a letter to the company that produced the Hikuta training materials that DOK Lee appeared in and they forwarded the letter to DOK Lee. Then he called Al, and liked the questions Al asked and he offered to train him. DOK Lee was looking for some help to do seminars and probably in the back of his mind, someone to pass the art onto.
