ConTact C.A.R.E


  ConTact C.A.R.E is a practical study in ‘The Nature of STILLNESS’.

 It is a Martial Arts based discipline created in Ngatea, 

New Zealand by Dale W. Speedy (6th Dan Blackbelt Kiaido-Ryu) and Kym Summers.


ConTact C.A.R.E recognises that the skeleton defends itself automatically and independently when impacted by surprise. This results in what we call SKELETAL SENSORY SHOCK.


Our perspective is that the bone 'spiral contracts' at the impact site creating a super sensitive over-contractive area around it that feels super strong. The rest of the body must then compensate with a counter-weight to maintain balance, and this is the felt stress.

The client is feeling the compensation workload in the form of pain, stress and/or tension NOT always the cause of it. 


ConTact C.A.R.E Equine- The Horses' Way


Is a style of this Martial Arts discipline that incorporates the horses natural and innate ability to know. Bringing the heart's connection and influence to the mind and natural self defence reactions of the body.    


We specialises in equine sports performance and rehabilitation from injury. As well as rider concussion, and injuries of sensory distortion such as anxiety, irrational fear and depression.

ConTact C.A.R.E for Equines is a revolutionary way to improve skeletal function and bring relief from pain, stress or tension for horses and their riders.

Suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, ConTact C.A.R.E is safe, effective and gentle.​ 

As our horses carry us, so they carry our injuries and pressures.



....There you are in the middle of your final dressage test for the series and you start to perform a simple leg yield, but your horse just won’t move under! There is no yield! Yesterday it was fine? This is going to cost you the crown!! It couldn’t possibly have anything to do with tripping over the stable step yesterday and landing on your hip? Could it?......


This is a classic scenario where an injury in the rider can influence the horses performance.

ConTact C.A.R.E releases the body’s Flinchlocks, giving the horse and rider a new natural balance, which takes performance to a finely tuned level and thus avoids a scenario like the one mentioned above.

A ConTact C.A.R.E. Performance session is a perfect way to prepare for a show or event.
