He Flew From Germany To Train At Invincible HQ!

We often get a lot of messages from people all over the world saying they want to travel to Australia and train with us at Invincible HQ, but many never do.

One day we received an email from a young dude who says he’s from Germany and that he was going to fly to Sydney to train at Invincible HQ. He was asking about accomodation options. So we knew he was serious.

When we finally met Szymon, he’s one of the most positive and genuine dudes around.

He told us he’d been following Invincible Worldwide on Instagram for over 2 years. And his dream was to come train at Invincible HQ.

But in order to do that, he needed to save enough money to fly from Germany to Sydney. So he decided to work in the army for 9 months, to save enough money to fulfil his dream. When he finally saved up enough, he bought the first ticket out to Sydney.

The first time Szymon arrived at Invincible HQ, he couldn’t stop smiling. We welcomed him to our Invincible Family and he fitted in straight away.

We love training with Szymon because he brings dedication, passion, focus and positivity to every training session. He could only afford to stay for 3 weeks, so he maximised his time. He unlocked new skills, improved his flexibility and took his body and mind to a new level.

We hope to be able to train with you again one day Szymon!

We Rise Together. We Inspire Together. Invincible Is Life!

How To Throw An Uppercut Punch

The uppercut is used in close-quarters fighting. It’s a power punch thrown from the waist upwards aimed at underneath the opponent’s chin or the solar plexus area of the body.

The forearm is on a vertical plane, and it is designed to split the guard.

The uppercut is almost useless against a fast, upright fighter who uses long lead jabs to your face. But it is a natural technique against someone who puts his head down and charges.

Most beginners throw the uppercut with only the shoulders. The power should be from the ground up. The knees should be bent before striking, and straighten as you throw the punch.

In this video, Alan La shows you 3 simple concepts to apply to maximise your uppercut technique, so that it’s efficient, fast and powerful.

We Had A Marvel Movie Audition at Invincible HQ!

We had the opportunity to audition for a Marvel Studios Movie at Invincible HQ!

Late last year, Alan La was invited to Fox Studios to do a private audition with Andy Cheng, former member of Jackie Chan Stunt Team, for a casting role in an upcoming Marvel Studios movie.

Andy was happy with Alan’s performance and wanted him to progress to the next stages. However upon realising the time commitment of the project, Alan decided he couldn’t take off 6 months to work on this, and leave behind his responsibilities with Invincible Worldwide, his team and his students.

So Andy asked to organise a casting audition with some of the members at the Invincible HQ Academy, particularly looking for a kid and a teenager to fulfil specific roles for the main characters in the film.

One of the Invincible Juniors, Caitlyn, was selected to progress to the next rounds of casting auditions, where she needed to learn to speak Mandarin (which was not her native language).

Here’s a highlight video of the initial casting audition at Invincible HQ.

Fast forward, a number of Invincible HQ members and coach were selected to play as extras and stunt for the film. They worked for months on set, alongside some of the world’s best martial artists, physical athletes and stunts performers.

Overall it was a great experience. We look forward to seeing the final production in 2021! 🙂

How To Overcome Your Fear Of Failure And Perform At Your Best

One question I get asked quite often is, “Alan, how do I overcome the fear of failure?”

Surveys show that 78% of the time, the fear of failure is based on a false perception of reality, which has a negative effect on our performance.

To overcome this, most people try to “think positive”, or tell themselves “You’ve got this!”, or they psyche themselves with positive affirmations.

But the problem is these surface techniques don’t always work when it’s actual crunch time!

So what can you do?

Watch this video if:
– You have a goal that you have been putting off, but you can’t get over your fear, even though you know you would succeed if you went all in.
– You have an upcoming presentation, or exam, or date that you want to go well.
– You want to take control of your perceptions

In this video, you will learn:

  • How Your Subconscious Beliefs Affect Your Results
  • How To Perform At Your Best For Your Next Important Event/Opportunity
  • ​4 Steps To Overcome The Fear of Failure​

How To Eat Clean And Maximise Your Protein

Protein is absolutely necessary for our bodies to function and be healthy. 

It is one of the vital building blocks for cell growth and creates the framework for hormones to develop. It also builds and repairs muscle and supports muscle growth. Not to mention, the collagen found in protein supports hair growth, skin repair and joint health!

Our bodies need 20 amino acids to function properly, which are a vital part in synthesizing hormones. We produce 12 of these amino acids on our own but need to find the remaining 8 from food sources. Animal protein contains all 8. It is possible to get all 8 from plant protein sources but you need to eat enough variety to make sure none are missing. 

This is just scratching the surface of the importance of protein in your diet. 

In this video, you will discover:

  • The 3 Main Categories of Protein Sources
  • What Is High Quality Protein And How It Improves Your Training
  • How Caloric Costs Affect Your Results
  • How To Prioritise Your Meals For Maximum Protein At The Lowest Caloric Cost


I also share with you a chart inspired by an international Health & Fitness Coach, Ronan Oliveira, which shows one of the most simplest ways to understand how to make smart choices in protein sources.

How To Build Solid Foundations In Any Technique

When I first started martial arts over 20 years ago, my training sessions consisted a lot of repetitions, practising forms, drilling the same movements over and over for hours. I never gave a thought WHY I was doing all this drilling.

But it wasn’t until many years later, after the countless hours of drilling the same movements, I found my body responding perfectly when I needed it most. And I realised the value of QUALITY techniques vs GOOD techniques.

It particularly showed in competitive sparring matches against guys twice my size, where I was quicker and more powerful. And when I was doing auditions for short films, where directors were impressed with my sharpness.

But the problem was when I began teaching martial arts to others, about 12 years ago, I quickly realised that not everyone had the same patience and willingness to put in the countless hours of drilling and repetitions. And I don’t blame them.

What made it worse is the rise of social media and smart phones over the past decade, which has made our society in general, less patient, more distracted and wanting more instant gratification than ever before. So it was becoming more and more difficult to get my students to be patient and keep drilling “boring” techniques the way I used to.

As my academy grew, I didn’t want it to be like every other martial arts academy in the industry that I was observing. Most academies have a small group of top tier dedicated students who were decent in their movements, while everyone else lacked intensity, proper execution, and barely possessed sharp, fast, powerful movements that you would expect, especially as blackbelts.

And I also didn’t want my academy to be another fight gym that focused solely on combat and forget about the values, essence and philosophy of martial arts.

So when I opened Invincible HQ, our mission was to “Build High Quality Humans.” I intentionally stayed away from using the word “martial arts”. I wanted to move away from the industry.

“Building High Quality Humans” is about enabling everyone, no matter what age, size, background, to unlock the potential of their physical and mental capacity. It is about the individual’s peak performance, rather than about a style of martial arts.

But the problem was still prevalent that people in today’s society don’t like to do boring drills and repetitions.

So I spent the last few years experimenting and refining our system to find the balance between developing quality techniques, while maintaining high motivation and enabling people to breakthrough their physical and mental potential, so that we can help EVERYONE, not just the top-tier dedicated students.

I’ve since discovered a unique training system that we use in our academy now. This unique system is embedded within our program and Level-UP system. I describe the first few phases of the system in more detail in the video below. It shows you the structure behind our training system to develop your physical performance.

Although we have already helped hundreds and hundreds of members, young and old, to go from ordinary to unlocking extraordinary feats, I don’t believe we have it all perfect yet. Like an artist, I’m still chasing that perfect system. You can be sure I’m continually refining and improving what we do.

The way we taught years ago is very different to the way we teach now. And unlike most martial arts programs, I expect it to evolve, improve and be totally different in the future.

We’ve helped 8 year old kids with absolutely no strength, coordination and confidence, to achieving quality push ups, explosive high kicks and inspiring self-confidence. We’ve helped unfit dads who have never trained in their life to perform strength feats, and be able to kick like an action movie star. I’m very proud of what we’ve been able to achieve.

This was a very long post. If you have read this far, I thank you and am honoured to have you on this amazing journey with us 🙏

“We Rise Together. We Inspire Together. Invincible Is Life!”

How To Have A Strong Punch

Have you ever wanted to have a strong punch without relying solely on muscle?

There are five components to punching power that must be present for a puncher to be considered truly powerful:
1. Lack of arm punching
2. Proper weight shifting
3. Stepping during a punch
4. Pivoting with a punch
5. Using proper footwork

There is no chance to hit hard if your technique is poor.

Imagine a bodybuilder who challenges you in the street for a fight and who needs five seconds till his punch reaches your face.

Why would you be like someone who is muscular and slow, when you can be strong and fast at the same time?

Have you ever watched the fight between Mike Tyson and Clifford Etienne? This is an example how a technique makes a perfection – Clifford Etienne went down after a world class technique shown by Tyson.

If you want to punch harder and faster, you need to utilise the whole body when you deliver a strike, don’t use just shoulders or arms.

Rotate your hips, pivot on your toes, rotate your shoulders, deliver a strike and keep your chin down.

Here’s a drill to help you build the muscle memory and instantly improve your punching technique!
