Master Gesualdi Emanuele elaborates a personal defense system in East Grinstead West Sussex UK in 1996.
This method was developped excusively for the english security and information services.
At his comeback in Italy in 1997 he continues elaborating the system mixing it with martial arts which he studied as well in the past as afterwards.
He starts Krav Maga in 2000 and trains himself in the Israeli College form security and investigation also as bodyguard and anti-terrorism in order to make his method more effective and recognized in Israel.
Given the lack of popularity of his style, in 2004 Emanuele decides to camouflage the real identity by giving it the name GEMART ( governmental european martial art).
In this way civil and military persons start to approach in order to study his style. Once the group of students starts to grow, the 5th October 2005 he reveals the identity of his system explaining the real meaning of the logo: Gemart Special Close Defense.
Actually Gemart is an acronym of Ge:Gesualdi, Ema: Emanuele, Mart: Martial, Art:art. The method was teached as in the origins, real, instinctive and extremely hard but often the athletes were not able to execute, and often the gym was half empty. People complained that the name was unknown and therefor there were a lot of variants with a more commercial flavour and accessible to everybody:shaolin, spetsnatz, ju jitsu, aikido, yoga tecniques, interior formation, magnetism, etc...the last one between 2015 and 2016 was the comeback of krav until the arrival of Abolnik who said: if your system is more realistic and instinctive as others, why change it into another name?
So i took back the originale Gemart method without paying attention to the critics. If you really want to defend yourself from any agression, it's necessary to eliminate the finery of martial arts and adapt the system to modern society.
The Gemart logo has 3 important meanings: - 2 nestled pyramids, the first One pointing up indicates the levelled hierarchy and organisation.
The second one pointing down indicates the method in continious devolution. This unione like jin and yang creates, besides the secure method, the wright balance overrolling the world. -the symbol represents a stylizes Star of David or Salomon's seal formed of two interlaced equilateral triangles, known also as Hexagram and expresses the unione between heaven of the spiritual world and earth oh the material world. Sometimes it's surrounded by a circle. The triangle pointing down indicates the two heavy elementi, water an earth, whom material's principal brings them down, while the triangle pointing up represents the two light and spiritual element, air and fire. The crossroad of both triangles forms a central hexagram representing the heart of a stable man in balance between the spiritual and body movement which allows to reach wisdom and interior force. Furthermore when a point is present in the center of the hexagram it represents the union between all the existing elements. -the stylized symbol represents the Merkaba. The word Mer-Ka-Ba is composed of 3 syllables corresponding to 3 words: Mer, Ka, Ba. Those words come from Ancient Egypt and they can be pronounced in several ways: Mer ka ba, Mer ka va and Mer ka va.
