"I'm in the business of producing things that I stand behind. It's always quality over quantity." 

 

Mark Anthony Ly teaches law enforcement and military personnels close-quarter combat (CQC). He is also the Senior Training Officer of CT Group International, LLC. He's done non-profit work by freely teaching thousands of New Yorkers every summer some of the same tactics taught to the military. 

The need for a minimalistic yet sturdy pen came from traveling abroad. Something that was functional such as a pen but also strong enough to be used as an blunt striking instrument and equalizer. This led to the creation of the indestructible and minimalistic every-day carry LYPEN.

 

Proceeds Go To:

Teaching New Yorkers Self-Defense
Empower and teach New Yorkers how to defend themselves against bigger, stronger, and faster opponents by using the LYPEN as an striking instrument. 

We've also sponsored martial artists who specialize in Filipino Martial Arts, Boxing, Muy Thai, Wing Chun Gung Fu, Jun Fan Jeet Kune Do, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Shoot Wrestling, Savate, Maphilindo Silat, and more. This helps promote a community of self-empowering individuals who do not believe in becoming victims.
