What is Contact C.A.R.E?

A Common Sense Approach to Real Ease

ConTact C.A.R.E is a Martial Arts based discipline focusing in 'The Nature of Stillness'. It was created by Dale Speedy (6th Dan Blackbelt Kiaido-Ryu) and Kym Summers in Ngatea, New Zealand.

We recognise that the skeleton defends itself automatically when impacted by surprise, causing the skeleton to go into sensory shock. The bone spiral contracts at the impact site, becoming a hard, immobile, and heavy bone. The body must then compensate to maintain balance, causing your 'felt' pain, tension, stiffness, and immobile joints. We call this workload.



We release flinchlocks within the bone that are the cause of your injury and pain. Your body knows what to do next.

Self Evident

The results speak for themselves. This is a hands on practice, the best thing to do is try it out!


Sense-able. Releasing flicklocks brings the senses back to life. Where you are now is the sum of all accidents, injuries, and actions. Your body remembers.


First and foremost, we move away from pain. This treatment does not hurt, you will be treated in your most comfortable position at all times, whether that be standing, sitting, or lying down.

What you can expect

To be observed.  We are trained to notice imbalances in posture, gait, and symmetry within the skeleton.

To be listened to. We note important time lines surrounding your injury, whether it was a physical or emotional event. Nothing is a coincidence.

To be kept comfortable and safe. There is no pain involved. You may feel some aggravation and 'tweaks' for 24-48 hours, however these will subside.

Results depend on the individual and the injury. It can take 2-4 days to feel the full affects of one treatment. Resolution of an injury may take 1-5 treatments.
