  • Weightlessness

    Weightlessness is Tom Fazio's original mind-body integration and peak performance methodology. While instilling a foundation of strength, health and mental focus, Weightlessness is designed to remove tension from the body, stress from the mind, and unburden us from all that holds us back in life.


    Foundational Weightlessness training is an evolving, prescriptive theory of development that integrates prime movers of strength, flexibility, meditation, and nutrition. Advanced Weightlessness training is categorically different from anything else in the mind-body domain, and is termed "lightness", due to the profound sensations of physical lightness and a psychology of focus and freedom that emerges.


    Weightlessness is a modern, surgical solution for navigating uncertainty in life with power and grace.


    Be Weightless.

  • Art of the Sash

    Tom Fazio's 'Art of the Sash' is the most comprehensive soft weapons system available to serious practitioners. After 20 years of soft weapons study under warrior monks and self defense experts Tom has innovated his own system that spans the spectrum of technical possibilities, drawing from rope dart and meteor hammer techniques for long range shooting, chain whip and nine segment lash techniques for intermediate whipping and striking, and drawing from sarong fighting, classical kung fu, and hapkido rope techniques for close quarter locking, controlling, choking and binding. The sash is as deadly as it is aesthetic.


    The Sash is perhaps the most potent tool for bridging physical performance with meditative awareness. We might call this the precipice of flow. The sash requires the practitioner to be as fluid and adaptable as the weapon itself, constantly present and alert to the momentary changes in environment, weapon, and Self. Few tools give immediate feedback if mindful awareness of the present is lost. The Sash is meditation.


    Tom introduced the Sash within the context of modern soft weapons training that has breached the world of classical soft weapons as well as the artistry of modern poi.

  • Martial Arts

    Tom Fazio, self defense expert and martial artist of 30+ years, teaches his own curriculum based on fundamental principles of structure, sensitivity, and self defense. Technically a mixed martial art, Tom's unique system draws from the strongest of striking, locking, and self defense systems to arrive at an art that offers the perfect mix of philosophical and martial depth, as well as practical application.


    Tom's career in martial arts spans decades under dozens of experts around the world in a variety of disciplines. He's studied empty hand striking under masters and grandmasters of Taekwondo, Karate, and Muai Thai in the United States and Thailand. He's studied traditional kung fu weaponry and qigong in China under Shaolin protector monks. And he's studied practical self defense with military combative instructors and professional MMA fighters. Tom was the first to introduce practical women's self defense workshops to Hong Kong and Shanghai, China.


    While he holds black belts in several martial arts, Tom believes that rank and lineage distract from the essence of martial arts training. Though his system is progressive, there are no certifications that qualify someone for the harshness of the streets, or the uncertainty of life. One must develop confidence and self sufficiency born of consistent hard work and dedication to the craft.
