you been searching for a simple, yet effective
method of self-defense that really works?
you figured out yet that most martial arts
schools, videos and seminars teach a lot of stuff
that doesn't work on the street?
there really a way you can learn to defend
yourself in virtually any situation, quickly and easily?
After over 37
years of studying and teaching martial arts I can tell you
beyond any doubt that most of what is being taught today
in martial arts schools, seminars and videos... just won't
work in a real street attack!
It's true. And
it's a darn shame. So many unsuspecting, poorly trained
and totally clueless folks are walking around with a false
security. They believe the moves and techniques they were
taught in their local martial arts school or a seminar they
attended, will really work in an honest to goodness, no
holds barred, street attack.
what's wrong with most traditional training?
Let me tell you...
I have been teaching
martial arts for a many years. For a long time I taught
much the same way everyone else did. Sure it worked fine
in the studio, but I often wondered how it would work on
I had heard and
read about experienced black belts being utterly trounced
by ordinary street thugs. What about what I was teaching?
Would it really work if called upon, to protect my students
and their loved ones?
bothered me for a long time.
it wasn’t until I had the chance to fight the “Bulletman”
that I really learned what would work on the street!
me explain. A number of years ago I was attending a national
martial arts convention. This guy was up on stage talking
about adrenaline stress response training. I had never heard
about it at the time. The instructor was talking about the
effects of fear induced adrenaline on the mind and body
during an actual street attack. I was intrigued.
speaker asked for a few volunteers. Several men and a women
were chosen to go up on stage. The next thing that happened
had most of us feeling the effects of adrenaline, right
in our seats.
guy comes out in this weird looking suit. He has football
shoulder pads and some obvious groin protection. On his
head he wore a huge piece of headgear which I found out
later was a professional football helmet with four layers
of special density foam padding wrapped in silver tape.
called this ‘monster’ the Bulletman, obviously because of
the silver round headgear that looked like the top of a
bullet. One of the volunteers was asked to come out. The
instructions were to try to maneuver around the Bulletman
without getting too close. If the Bulletman attacked they
could strike him full force into the groin and head.
Bulletman starts screaming at this guy. He shouts obscenities
at him. He taunts him. He faints attacks as he threatens
the guy. I could feel my gut shaking just sitting there.
Then suddenly the Bulletman attacks. The poor guy attempts
some foolhardy kick which embarrassingly misses the mark
by about a foot. Next a punch that had less impact than
my eight year old grandson could muster. After a few more
minutes of this hideous display a women instructor blows
a whistle and the whole thing is over.
few more volunteers and about the same result. Now here
is the interesting part. Everyone of these volunteers were
experienced black belts. Some were school owners
with a dozen years or so of experience.
why did this happen?
all fell prey to the natural effects of adrenaline on the
mind and body. Adrenaline is the natural result of fear
induced aggression. It really can’t be stopped, but it can
be focused and used. These black belt volunteers had tried
to use their dojo techniques (traditional martial arts techniques).
What they hadn’t anticipated was that the adrenaline had
dulled their senses. It minimized their fine motor skills,
it gave them tunnel vision and even affected their cognitive
out taking this adrenal rush into account, effective street
self defense cannot be accomplished. To be effective, each
technique must be simple, direct and not require fine motor
this is what I did...
I got fully trained in adrenal stress self-defense training.
I found out what would and wouldn't work under what we call
the 'adrenal dump'.
is what I learned:
effect of real aggression causes what is called an "adrenaline
dump". This fear induced high volume shot of adrenaline
is normal and natural and cannot be stopped, even by
experienced black belts.
of this "adrenaline dump" can be devastating,
especially if you are not prepared for it.
problem is that many of the techniques that are taught
in traditional training are too tricky or too complicated
for the average person to properly execute. This is
especially true under the duress of an all out street
attack. Techniques that are highly complicated tend
not to be executed properly, if at all, when the pressure
is on and adrenaline levels are high.
the systems use joint locks and pressure points that
require years of training to properly execute. Sometimes
even when they are applied properly to someone who has
an unusual amount of joint flexibility or a high resistance
to pain, they don’t work.
the arts teach kicking techniques that are great for
the studio or for sport competition, but are all but
useless on the street. Unfortunately many of the practitioners
of these arts are led to believe that they can really
use these kicks effectively in a combat situation. They
end up with a false security believing they can defend
themselves with such techniques. In reality, if they
ever have to really fight, they usually get themselves
into trouble very quickly.
require years of training or are just impossible to
learn unless you are under the direct training of the
master instructor. You cannot learn these properly from
a video, book or seminar. They take years to perfect,
even under the supervision of an expert instructor.
what is taught is just fluff! It doesn't stand a chance
to work in a real street attack!
|The solution was
developing a system that contained the following benefits:
It had to
address the inevitable adrenaline dump which is the
natural effect of fear induced aggression.
It had to
be simple enough to teach students in days or weeks
instead of years!
It had to
be effective regardless of the body type of the attacker.
It had to
be quick, effective and decisive!
It had to
address real street "situations" instead of
the typical studio environment.
It had to
contain a minimum amount of techniques. This was necessary
as research has shown that as few as a handful of techniques
can be recalled when fully "adrenalized".
It had to
be designed to defeat a much larger and stronger attacker!
It had to
be easy to learn.
it had to be direct, powerful and yet simple and straight
forward enough to be taught through video based training.
So I went to
work analyzing, adjusting, changing, modifying and fine
tuning everything I was doing and teaching in my self defense
program. Believe me, it wasn't easy, even for an 'expert'
with over 30 years of training at the time.
During the next
several years I searched everywhere and every way to simplify,
and improve every aspect of our self-defense system. This
search included going to seminars, visiting other schools,
bringing in guest instructors and reviewing close to 100
self defense videos.
I was sifting
through masses of information to pick up a gem here and
there. Every thing I learned and tried had to go through
what I call the "Adrenal Stress Filter'. It had to
work under duress and high adrenal states. Slowly I made
changes to what we taught and how we taught it. Constantly
modifying, perfecting and refining our program to what it
that there were about 30 common street attacks that we had
to deal with. Sure, there were others, but they were really
just variations of the basic thirty.
We took each
one of these possible attacks and developed a system that
took into consideration the 'adrenal dump' which causes
us to freeze up and lose fine motor coordination.
any response that did not fit into this reality. We added
more simple, direct and extremely effective strikes, moves
and techniques that could be learned simply and easily.
And, did not require years of training.
Finally we condensed
this entire process into a simple, organized system of instruction.
To help our students learn the system we decided to carefully
put the entire process on video. It's done in a step by
step manner so that even a total beginner can learn it.

a few of my students have to say...
