    Art of the Sash

    Tom Fazio's comprehensive soft weapons curriculum

    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. Shop Courses and Sashes below.

    Martial Arts

    Innovative, modern solutions for self defense and self-development.

    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.

  • About Tom Fazio

    Tom Fazio is a peak performance trainer, a martial artist of 25 years, a published author, and founder of the mind-body integration system Weightlessness.


    For years Tom has been one of the most sought after personal trainers and body transformation specialists in Shanghai, China. His no-nonsense, unorthodox approach to mind-body training has made him an effective catalyst to extreme transformation among those who have found no success with conventional methods. After publishing "Weightlessness" in 2014, Tom committed fully to the development and propagation of his mind-body system Weightlessness by way of committed peak performance programs with small tribes of high performing individuals - entrepreneurs, executives, athletes, and fitness experts.


    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.
