Intercept Combatives is a personal training provider specializing in practical self-defense and martial arts. With a philosophical foundation in Jeet Kune Do Concepts, training focuses on you as an individual, not the system. Our goal is to empower you and raise your capacity, helping you go beyond pre-conceived limitations and find out where your true limitations lie. Realistic combative training is a vehicle that helps you on a path of self-discovery. Along the way you will develop usable combative skills applicable to any environment or circumstance. Intercept Combatives is an apolitical organization that recognizes that as human beings, there are no “styles” of combat; only results.
We prefer to use the term “Combatives” to describe our training rather than self-defense or even Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). Although our training is geared for the street and although it may resemble aspects of the sport of MMA, Combatives is a much more comprehensive and encompassing term. Combatives is self-defense and MMA, and then some! To paraphrase Sifu Jim McCann, Combatives refers to a “complete fighting system” utilizing any and all available weapons, dedicated, makeshift or empty-hand. The environment is the real world, where attacks involving multiple opponents and weapons are commonplace. Every move must have a nullifying or incapacitating finish.
Besides being an excellent method of self-protection, iCombatives ultimately is more about “self-perfection”. In Bruce Lee’s words “JKD, ultimately, is not a matter of petty technique; but of a highly developed personal spirituality and physique”.
iCombatives will teach you effective self-defense skills and at the same time provide a vehicle for developing functional fitness. Through iCombatives training, you will also develop unparalleled confidence and enhance your self-esteem as you learn to overcome your fears – all benefits that carry over into your everyday life.
Trevor Wilcox is the President of Intercept Combatives. Trevor has been involved in the martial arts since he was 8 years old. He currently holds the ranks of:
In addition to his formal training, Trevor continued to search for ways to improve his martial prowess and as such has cross-trained in a variety of arts including Kickboxing, Freestyle Karate, Muay Thai, Capoeira, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Wing Chun, Jun Fan and Kali. Trevor is also a former Personal Defense Readiness coach under Tony Blauer.
Trevor has kept his training focus on functional fighting methods, and in January 2011 became an affiliate member of Larry Hartsell’s Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Grappling Association, which became the core curriculum for Intercept Combatives. Also being inspired by the likes of Paul Vunak, Dog Brothers, Burton Richardson and Richard Dimitri, Trevor continues to experiment and supplement the core curriculum of the Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do Grappling Association with material that blends seamlessly without changing the core structure and philosophies.
Trevor presently conducts personal training and small group classes in Hong Kong, and is available for workshops and seminars worldwide. Contact us for more details.
I would like to extend a sincere note of gratitude to all those who have directly and indirectly had a hand in shaping me as a martial artist and teacher in one respect or another and in varying degrees. Some I studied under for years and some it was only a seminar, and others simply through their writings and our subsequent discussions. The lessons I learned from all these people have stayed with me all the same, and have thus influenced my approach to the combative arts.
I will firstly list those who I have directly trained with, as well as in what capacity (system, style etc) I trained with them, in a general, but not precise, chronological order. This list also does not necessarily indicate their current affiliations.
The first is a man who I owe the most in terms of what I refer to as my “neo-classical” martial education, Master Geoff Scully (Hapkido and Taekwondo). Master Scully is the man that “raised me” in the martial arts and taught me to manipulate traditional methods for modern applications (neo-classical) in finding my way towards the “truth”.
Others include Sifu Lawrence Lee, founder of the Tong Kune Do / Total Control system; Grandmaster Sung Soo Lee (Hapkido); Sensei Normie Daghel (Freestyle/Kickboxing/MMA); Anthony Perosh (Brazilian Jiujitsu); Carlos Machado (Brazilian Jiujitsu); Professor Borracha (Capoeira); Sifu Arthur Ligopantis (Jeet Kune Do Concepts); Coach Thomas Arcuri (Personal Defense Readiness); Sifu Francis Chui (Hartsell Jeet Kune Do); and Sifu Kelvin Chan (Guangzhou-style Wing Chun).
I also wish to thank those whose work has inspired my ongoing evolution as a martial artist as I continue to absorb that which I feel is useful and disregard that which no longer jibes. To that end, I wish to thank Andrew Pena, Jesse Murrieta, Tony Torres, Hock Hoccheim, Richard Dimitri, Burton Richardson, Marc Denny, Paul Vunak, Joseph Simonet and Tony Blauer.
