Frequently Asked Questions

Traditional techniques being applied in a new way
The Combat Whip techniques come primarily from Jiu Jitsu. Although not a typical Jiu Jitsu weapon, these whips adapt perfectly to many well known Jiu Jitsu techniques.
My training has been primarily in Japanese Jiu jitsu systems and the striking, blocking, throwing and choking techniques come from these origins.
Where did Combat Whips start?
Combat Whips are an idea created by me, Chris Tindale in 2018. I’m Japanese Jiu Jitsu black belt who always had an affinity for the incredible usefulness of ropes and knots.
While training with weapons like the Kubaton, Knife, Stick, and even my belt I kept saw how the same techniques could be applied with whips.
