Chess brings presence....

                                                                              
I'm fusing music, chess and martial arts to help people gain a true level of presence. I want to help them transcend their faith, without leaving their religion. I want to help them transcend their race, but not forget who they are. I want them to transcend the need for violence, but still have the knowledge and the courage to defend whats sacred. - Adisa Banjoko, Founder Hip-Hop Chess Federation

HHCF Founder Adisa Banjoko Reveals Iron Hook Series

The Iron Hook to King Tut Submission Series was developed by Adisa Banjoko. He is a purple belt at Heroes Martial Arts in San Jose, CA. He developed it while Adisa was training with his instructor, Alan "Gumby" Marques, fusing it with a position he found in Kid Peligro's book, The Essential Guard (slightly altering the grip). The Iron Hook is a unique way to grip an opponent with one arm, that traps both of the arms of your opponent. The Iron Hook breaks the posture of your opponent and keeps them off center from their base. Look for more sweeps, submissions and chokes from this position soon.
