“Antoni Hardonk and Henry Akins have martial arts styles that are both philosophically and conceptually identical. With the hierarchy of goals being safety, advancing position, and finishing, every aspect of this entire “feet to floor game” seems to be penned from the same artists hand. I’ve never seen a more profound striking art than that of Antoni’s, and certainly not one that’s safe, methodical, and aggressive all at the same time. Antoni has a striking, an inside, and a clinching style that not only devastates, but that hands the baton off to Henry for the grappling portion of the fight with perfect grips and positioning to actually pre-stack the opponents deck against him. And in true Rickson Gracie style, the fight is finished quickly and efficiently. SO much so, that it’s hard to believe that anything else was even considered other than “finishing”, but in properly focusing on the “safety” and “positioning”… the ease of the “finish”almost looks like an afterthought for Henry. I’ve never seen a more beautiful integration of all the areas of martial arts in my life than that of Henry & Antoni. Dynamix has seemingly revolutionized fight training in it’s entirety right here in LA… while no one else was looking.”
