Core Combat Chiang Mai is a proud affiliate of MANONUDA Thailand, founded by Guro Gianfranco Lanucara. The MANONUDA approach is based on “Cross Training”, that is training separately in different fighting systems and methods, but also on the integration of those trained disciplines. We strongly believe that the highest level of efficiency is not reached by mastering a single martial art (no matter which one), but by combining different compatible ones, as for example Jeet Kune DoKaliSilatMMA.

Contact Sakan Lam if you are interested in hosting seminars or private lessons in the MANONUDA system.
