I couldn't find any info on this style through Google. Anyone know if Tai'kor is a historical art or not? I would assume that this is just an arbitrary name for Mr. Ward's own personal MMA system to give it a more "exotic" flavor(?). Nothing necessarily wrong with that, although it does seem kinda funky that it's listed underneath MMA, Muay Thai, Western Boxing, and Submission Grappling as a separate system. The picture of a guy doing a flashy jumping roundhouse kick also seems a bit much, but I know more than a few MMA schools aren't above posting overly flashy techniques on their websites to garner attention.
Taiíkor (a system of Close Quarter Combat) is an educational and complete martial art style. It is complete in that Taiíkor covers all the fighting distances: Stand-Up Fighting, Grappling and Ground-Fighting, and Weapons Training. Techniques such as punching, kicking, blocking, throwing, pressure points, joint locks, submission tactics, weapon disarming, etc. are all studied by a practitioner of Taiíkor. It is also complete in that Taiíkor can be taught to anyone, despite age, sex, disabilities, etc. The very backbone of Taiíkor is the principle of adaptability. Hence, the system of Taiíkor itself can be adapted to anyone. With its wide variety of techniques and tactics, it is a combat art form that can easily be customized to suit any person of any size and strength. Thus, the student receives a totally adaptable martial arts education that prepares him/her for real-life combat in the best possible way. This martial art; based on methods of angles, distance, timing, and rhythm, is like inserting a key into a lock. Every attack or counter defense of this art flows with absolute authority into the next. The transition time between any change in technique should be continuously minimized in order to have economy of motion. The art of Taiíkor, like other effective combat martial arts, all have this type of efficiency and fluidity. Furthermore, what makes Taiíkor so effective in combat is its ability to fight with or without a weapon, without a change in cadence or rhythm. If you should lose your weapon or become disarmed; your hands, feet, elbows, knees, forehead, etc. will automatically take their place without a pause. This dynamic flow allows one to attack an opponent from limb to limb if necessary, offering severe destruction of the opponent and ensuring your survival. Fancy and flashy techniques are not used or practiced. Straight-forward, practical techniques are mastered; techniques that anyone can use in real-life situations where they must work. Taiíkor is a devastatingly effective martial art, meant for No Holds Barred combat. The word ďTaiíkorĒ means ďThe Complete Way.Ē
