Reality Based Self Protection
URBAN COMBATIVE'S WORSHOP
What is Reality Based Self Protection?
This is not to be confused with Self Defence where you would already have been attacked and having to defend yourself. Self Protection is based on the fact that you would preemptively strike before you have to defend yourself and therefore protecting ones self in the process. This would have a game changing effect on your potential threat as this would now turn the table physiologically and physically.
We have the only Reality-Based Self Protection class in Chelmsford (RBSP) that teaches techniques and tactics for protecting one’s self in everyday life without adhering to any particular tradition. The training is based on instinctive responses, gross motor skill movements, conflict scenarios and most importantly pressure testing.
RBSP addresses the three stages of fights -
- Pre Conflict Stage
- Conflict Stage
- Post Conflict Stage
A recent seminar with Lee Morrison of Urban Combatives
Our basic premise is question everything and see if it could work under stress in reality.
Attacks do not conform to a set of rules or procedure's, they just happen and are usually chaotic and extremely vicious.
WHAT IS URBAN COMBATIVE'S?
Urban Combative's is Lee Morrison's reality based self protection program. With influences from western combative's close quarter combat of the WWII era.
The benefits are they can be learned and mastered in a short amount of time and they normal come from natural responses rather than technical martial arts systems.
Classes are focused on learning a handful of techniques that can be applied to a wide variety of situations then pressure testing them to build confidence in their value. The curriculum includes:
- The core “street” game plan
- Default Responses
- Development of support skills/delivery systems (basic boxing and grappling skills)
- Aggression training
- Gradual pressure testing
Please be aware our training is geared for counter violence from a street orientated perspective - it's not for sport, or art for art's sake. There will be role-play, dialogue and profanity, as well as non-compliant simulation drills and a degree of stress inoculation.
Wednesday 8pm - 9pm
