STACT fighting system was born out of Guru Chris’ 35+ years of studying martial arts and combatants. This system is more of a combat martial art than one of sports or competition. It was designed with more of the self-defense perspective against single and multiple attackers than with forms and Kata. The primary weapon is knife, however, STACT also teaches a myriad of other weapons.

- Satria Yoga
The forming of the Satria Yoga began in 1999. All postures derive from the Satria Fighting Arts (SFA), so the natural body mechanics when practising the postures, can also be used for self-defence, but trained without the combative element to it.
Satria Yoga was first inspired by Guru Ma, who believed that it was important for women to learn self-defence in this modern age. As a Yoga teacher herself, her understanding of yoga is very esoteric. She also understood that most women were not so interested in combative type of martial arts training. So instead, she initiated Pendkar Steven to create a way of training for women that would build strength, endurance, stability, flexibility, mobility, agility, coordination, relaxation, correct alignment, thereby encouraging good posture, as well as correct use of breath through relaxation and other breathing exercises. This does not restrict the practise for women only, in fact, more men practice this style of yoga under one roof and have found the link that connects their external practises into an internal one.
