Tactics / Techniques MMXVI

Tactics / Techniques MMXVI was a hybrid gallery show, seminar and Jiu Jitsu demonstration created for Singapore’s Gentle Arts Academy, that explored and illuminated the points of intersection between the martial and graphic arts. The event featured a talk on the topic of cultural exchange from DualForces founder Robert Abeyta Jr., followed by a conversation with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu pioneer Chris Haueter, who led the audience of practitioners, artists and cultural influencers in a training session. This conversation was framed by a mixed-media art exhibition with works by Haueter and Abeyta Jr. that investigated the impact of formalized combat training on visual language. A collection of limited edition T-shirts were created for the event, which culminated in the charity raffle of 13 limited edition Shoyoroll MAGIKimono Gis that were customized with a ‘Tactics and Techniques’ patch. The edition number was a reference Chris’ status as a member of the “Dirty Dozen” — the first 12 non-Brazilian recipients of the BJJ black belt. Video by Melvin.
