Playa El Zonte is El Salvador’s best kept secret, it’s a piece of paradise. Still undiscovered by mainstream tourists, it will blow you away with how peaceful and almost deserted it is.
Located on the Pacific Coast, El Salvador‘s beaches are home to some of Central America’s finest surf breaks, and some of the last remaining untouched beaches in the world. There’s nothing better then to learn the most brutal and effective striking martial art in the world in one of the most peaceful and beautiful place in the world.
Unique for its black sand and big rock formations, this beach is only 30 minutes from San Salvador. It’s world famous because it’s ideal for surfing. And International championship even take place here. Playa El Zonte is also noted for its seafood, celebrated during the yearly Gastronomic Festival.
“Techniques, partner drills, technical sparring, mental focus, meditation, cultural & culinary experiences - all this and more awaits you on your Lei Tai Retreat.”

The teachings at The Francombat Experience transcend style-bound limitations. From all angles and approaches. Although it’s good to have a proper style as your original base/reference point, The Francombat Experience is open to all styles and grades. You’re there to learn stuff – not to know stuff. Besides, a Francombatant doesn’t care too much about styles, grades or associations. Those are often roadblocks on the path to discovering your higher human potential.
The Francombat Experience is not a “regular” seminar. There won’t be masses of people standing behind each other, copying mindless punches, kicks and blocks for hours and hours, just to go home sweaty… but unfulfilled. At The Francombat Experience, you will literally eat, sleep and train together with passionate martial artists just like you for seven days—and in the process widen your perspective on martial arts from both a physical, technical and theoretical standpoint. If you ask me, The Francombat Experience is a whole new kind of martial arts “seminar” (read why here). I think you have to be there to truly understand.
The Francombat Experience is unlike any seminar you’ve ever attended. To make a long story short; participants from 25+ different countries eat, train and sleep at the same place, wear martial arts uniform, belts, receive exclusive goodie bags, enjoy secret surprises, connect in private online forums and experience a 360 degree view of Combat from hand-picked Martial Arts experts.
