Ghost was born and developed in competition. It has been tried and tested in the ring, in the cage and come out on top.

Ghost Elusive Combat is designed to avoid concussive blows which lead to permanent brain damage.

Ghost improves coordination, which is suggested to enhance brain function and health.

Moving targets are harder to hit, and this is why one of the underpinning principles in Ghost is Constant Movement. So you’ll take your cardio to a whole new level.

The style has been described as ‘awkward’ and ‘frustrating’ by opponents, and Ghosters are renowned for being insanely difficult to hit.

As Ghost is a system, it can complement other striking arts. Use it solely for defence should you get in trouble or use the principles to increase the variety in your current game.

“Even as a practising martial artist for over 30 years, and an undefeated MMA fighter I’ve never experienced anything so humbling as sparring a ghost practitioner. In the few rounds we sparred, I didn’t come close to touching my opponent, but he seemed to hit me at will”
