Event description

Description


At extreme close quarters, punches become almost useless and the heavier, stronger person almost always has the advantage.



Being pinned or bear-hugged by a stronger opponent is an extremely bad place to be. At this point, your punches and kicks become ineffective but eye attacks, headbutts, elbow strikes and knee strikes can get you out of a bad situation.

There are many misconceptions about these close quarter tools. In almost all self-defence instruction I've seen, elbow strikes are taught to be used at the wrong distance, knee strikes are taught to be aimed at the WRONG target, eye 'gouges' are overestimated (based on no real life experience) and headbutts are taught in a way that is downright dangerous to the USER!

The truth is that an understanding of combat ranges and weapon-selection is essential. As is knowing what works and in which way!

When used at the right time, elbows, knees, head butts and eye attacks can turn the tables on a bad situation even against a bigger opponent.

Like most people with a classical martial arts background, my skills were rendered useless at close range when I started to really test myself and my training. Most martial arts are designed to be used in a one-on-one sparring-based model. Real violence on the street tends not to go down like that, I discovered!

Based on a tactical model inspired by security and military veteran Mick Coup, my students and I now use specific training drills that result in the defender using the right tool for the right job at the right time.

In this course we look at:

- Developing an intuitive understanding of range

- Selecting the right 'tool' for job

- Various angles of the elbow strike

- Knee strikes

- The right way to use the headbutt

- The truth about eye attacks

- The reality of 'biting'

- Understanding the importance of bio-mechanical 'range of motion'
