If you won’t Invest to your ability to Protect Yourself You become a Trophy of Your Assailant !
Empty Hands Combat for Bodyguards
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 the Empty Hands Combat courses (programs)mostly are only sets of different fancy techniques (far away from reality in regards of the simplicity of understanding, using, and efficiency);
Most of the training providers don't know how to teach students to recognize situations, adapt to quickly changing hostile environments, improvise and react to danger properly (in time-timing) to avoid overreactions (possible unreasonable and unlawful actions);
License no: ICPTA 669
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.
Our project was built keeping in mind, that 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 and Avoiding Unnecessary Casualties.
