A new undercover video from Project Veritas shows, for the first time, Antifa instructors training members how to fight and disable opponents, which would likely include law enforcement officers sent to quell riots.
The undercover video posted Friday as part of Project Veritas’ “Expose ANTIFA” project contains footage of instructors and students who belong to New York City’s “RefuseFa” group, which is aligned with the loose-knit Left-wing anarchist movement that was declared a terrorist organization last month by President Donald Trump.
In the newly released video, a ‘fight club’ instructor is seen teaching students how to kidney-punch and how to break ‘floating ribs’ so as to disable them at a location known as “The Base Anarchist Political Center.”
BREAKING: @Project_Veritas inside NYC ANTIFA
"Get a good liver or kidney shot, it's pretty much crippling them"
"Break one of the floating ribs"

“If you get a good liver or kidney shot, it’s pretty much crippling them,” an unidentified instructor says. “They’re going to be doubled over and in a lot of pain. If you break one of the floating ribs… Those are also very painful, it’s hard to move after that, it’s hard to catch a breath.”
“One good body shot,” the instruction continues, “could potentially give you all the time you need to run away while they’re double over in pain, or really put a beating on them after that if you really don’t like the person.”
Another fight instructor named “Chris” teaches people how to break the nose of their opponent or gouge their eyes.
Project Veritas noted that its undercover journalists were taught various fighting techniques on several occasions to be employed during riots. They include how to do chokeholds, how to get out of chokeholds, and both defending against blunt objects and using them against someone.
The latest video follows the release of an undercover report Thursday in which Antifa members admit the objective of the organization is to cause mayhem and create anarchy.
In the video, one Antifa leader is seen admitting that the organization is violent in nature but that members should try to avoid being seen in photos beating up people or destroying property because “we need to f*cking hide that sh*t.”
And, during a secret planning session, a group leader says, “The whole goal of this thing is to get out there and do dangerous things as safely as possible.”
The earlier video also features Antifa members discussing ways to disable opponents. “Practice things like an eye gouge. It takes very little pressure to injure someone’s eyes,” one member says.
“Consider destroying your enemy, not like delivering a really awesome right hand, right eye, left-eye blow. It’s not boxing, it’s not kickboxing. It’s like destroying your enemy,” he continued.
At another point in the video, a group leader tells people to focus on taunting Trump supporters and get them angry enough to react. He claims that tactic will lead to demoralization and loss of support for the president.
“If you ruin their day, if you heckle them — if you make them feel like they look ridiculous, make them feel outnumbered — their whole ‘yay yay, America Trump’ thing is gonna go by the wayside,” he says.
One undercover operative and member of Rose City Antifa in Portland, Ore., says members of the group meet secretly at local bookstores in the mornings before the businesses open.
He said before meetings, members are required to “put their phones in the bathroom next door. This bathroom is not only away from the main room where the lecture is taking place, but also has a fan that muffles any sound from the room.”
He added that Rose City members were getting trained by an Antifa operative who recently moved to Sweden.
“They were getting this tradecraft from someone else — someone with much more experience, someone who did this for a living,” he said.
“They do not hesitate to either push back or incite some kind of violence,” he warned. “In our classes and in our meetings — before we do any sort of demonstration — we talk about weapons detail, what we carry, and what we should have.”
