The American Project Veritas group has released a new undercover video filmed in an Antifa Fight Club where participants were taught various fighting techniques. In a separate video, the head of Refuse Fascism's Atlanta chapter admits that they applied for, and received, funding from US stock market speculator George Soros.
Antifa has most certainly flexed its muscles during the recent riots in the US, to the extend that even US President Donald Trump has floated the idea of designating the group as a terrorist organisation.

Project Veritas, a group of investigative journalists using disguises and hidden cameras, has managed to infiltrate Antifa, and one of their associates attended an Antifa Fight Club training in New York, where participants were taught various fighting techniques.
The instructor in the video explains how delivering a "good kidney or liver shot" will cripple the agressors, adding that "breaking one of the floating ribs is also very painful."
"We call this a safe space to practice agression," said Chris, one of the instructors.
Participants discussed a number of defense techniques which could be useful in riots, such as defense against blunt objects, but they also talk about protecting themselves against bear hugs and chokeholds.

Project Veritas has recently managed to go undercover with an organisation called Refuse Fascism (RF). RF was established in 2016 by far-left activists, including the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA, and the organisation is devoted to impeaching President Trump and toppling his administration.
Undercover reporters have managed to film the head of RF's Atlanta chapter, Tee Stern, as she was saying that "the ultimate vision is to... for people to break with their comfort and come into the streets day after day... into the hundreds of thousands, into the millions; and not leave until they (Trump and Pence) have to step down."
"We did apply for a grant from Soros at one point, a long time ago when I was doing more abortion rights and defending clinics. We actually did get a grant from them (Soros) around we started a thing called a "National Day of Appreciation" for abortion providers," Stern said.
She also said that they were not going to reach millions without millions of dollars.

One of Refuse Fascism's most memorable actions took place in 2017, when they blocked conservative gay polemicist Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking at the University of California. The protest against Milo soon turned into a riot, with participants destroying property and setting things on fire, causing several physical injuries.
Following the incident, the American Daily Caller newspaper published an article saying the radical left-wing group that helped organise the violent shut down of the Milo Yiannopoulos event was backed by a progressive charity fiscally sponsored by George Soros.
The Alliance for Global Justice (AfGJ), a Tucson-based organisation, is listed as a financial sponsor and organiser of Refuse Fascism. Following the riot the organisation asserted in a Facebook entry, that has since been removed, that the vandalism and arson at Berkeley was not violence, arguing that it is the laws advocated by Trump and Yiannopoulos that perpetuate violence.
The Alliance for Global Justice's financial documents from 2017 reveal that they received, among other things, substantial sums, more than $261,000, from the Soros-affiliated Tides Foundation. However, Tides's treasury was boosted with more than $2.8 million in 2017, thanks to the Open Society Foundations.
In addition, Amnesty International also transferred $10,000 to AfGJ, right after Soros provided it with over $4 million in 2017 alone.
The Astraea Foundation supported AfGJ with $5,000, while Soros gave more than half a million dollars to Astraea.
