August 20th, 2016 – As part off a Gathering of The Society for the Advancement of Bureaus and Offices at Southern Exposure in San Francisco, ACL will offer Dynamic Color Field Combat Training from 2-4pm.

The Association of Combative Landscapes (ACL) is a collaborative, non-profit, professional association dedicated to physical movement in contentious spaces. The ACL consists of members committed to productively channel spatial and economic aggressions while negotiating changing urban realities.

Through its specialized hand-to-hand Dynamic Color Field Combat Training and unconventional resources, the ACL provides members with tools for finding balance in conflictual situations, leveraging movement out of compromised positions and actuating advanced mark making/space claiming strategies. Utilizing invigorating and versatile conflict navigation, members are invited to become Special Operations Associates to further the association’s mission to equip a new breed of city dwellers for the increasing need for stability and revitalization.
