Why this program is needed:

With decades of Empty Hands Combat training with different groups of students ( from kids to Police and Army SF) we came to conclusions:

Most of Empty Hands Combat courses (programs)mostly are only sets of different fancy techniques (far away from reality in regards of simplicity of understanding, using and efficiency)

Most of training providers don't know how to teach students to recognize situations, adopt to quickly changing hostile environment, improvise and react to danger properly (in time-timing) to avoid over reactions (possible unreasonable and unlawful actions);

Our program is Designed for Small Bodyguard (CPO) Groups (1-5 operatives) operating in Hostile Environment without any Logistic and Power Support.

Our concept - Task Orientated Adaptation and Improvisation to Perform Effectively and Safely through a Real Assault.

Defensive Tactics for Professionals and Member of Public!

Situation Determines Preparation:

  • Simple and Efficient principles of using Biomechanics of Human Body, Psychical Reactions and Timing (vs Fancy and Spectacular sets of techniques);
  • How to React to Danger Properly and Adequate - Level of force is determined by the assailant! (Reasonable Force and Levels of Power ) instead of guessing and making mistakes and breaking of laws;
  • Making right decisions: Sorting problems out instead of making troubles;
  • Coordination of Teamwork (Teamwork and Communication);
  • Crowd Control: Conflict Management, Blending with Crowd, Prevention of Provocations;
  • MUST be an optimal ratio between Reality Training and Safety;
  • Survival Mindset achieved through Practical Exercises (not just theory);
  • Achieve Combat Mindset and Train to Respond to Real Threat;
  • Importance of Stress Management;
  • Making Right Decisions;
  • Avoiding Unnecessary Casualties.
