Graham Healy's Martial Arts History.

In the begining the foundation was boxing with Bert Healy Snr and Bert Healy Jnr then the two first generation ITF Masters Chong Chul Rhee and Grandmaster Young Ku Yun then Commando Krav Maga with Moni Aizik and more recently Avi Nardia from Israel based Kapap.  
This was a distilling process where Graham Healy spent over 40 years from the age of 14 in Boxing to current age 57 and still refining the system from the mentors that he had in his career.
The photos on this page gives you a flow chart of who Graham was involved with and why the foundations upon which he developed the Healy's system which was tried and tested over a long period of time.
In the true spirit of the late and great Bruce Lee "absorb whats useful disregard the rest" Graham has done that without political involvement and is now well recognised as a person who follows the true spirit of martial arts and develops what he believes is a realistic system through personal experience and dedication over time.
Graham believes that any system must be tried and tested and to this day is still refining the Healy's Freestyle Tae Kwon-Do and Boxing Academy System and continues to "sharpen the samurai sword" in pursuit of perfection.

 

The system involves several attack and defense zones.

 

1. Long Range = Tae Kwon-Do Kicks such as side and back kicks and spinning and jumping kicks.

2. Mid Range = Boxing Techniques (bare handed) 

3. Mid to Close Range = Kickboxing Techniques

4. Close Range = Commando Krav Maga Techniques and more recently Kapap to be added were appropiate. 

 

The Healy's System can seemlessly integrate between ranges 1 to 4 to acheive this
Graham Healy has spent the appropriate time in each zone to perfect what he believes is the ultimate self defence system however in saying that continues to fine tune and tweak the system.

At the End of the Day , the focus of Graham Healy's Martial arts/personal protection/Self-defence school is to introduce one technique at a time,based on the principle of 'keeping it simple and effective' and the age old principle taught by my famous Grandfather (Bert Healy Senior) and that is "let the First technique be your best one".

On the other side of just 'pure physical' technique, the Healy's system has a mental and spiritual side , what is taught has to be morally correct based on Integrity of Spirit and the relationionship between student and instructor is of utmost importance.


Graham's students usually become 'life long' friends as we work towards a total Mind,Body and spirit balance using the discipline of Martial Arts and Boxing training as a 'pure form' of self-defence, not only refining the physical, but the mental and spiritual as well . 

The Self-centred Ego has no place in the Healy's Self-defence Academy and atmosphere of
'non-threating' family like comradery is always promoted between all members at Healy's self-defense Academy along with a spirit of Love ,Care and Protection.
