Warmup: The warmup session will be based around the type of techniques that will be learned that day. Reaction time, working under stress, situational awareness, and aggressive trigger theory, use of technique and safe exit strategy will be incorporated in the warmup.


Techniques: The techniques will be movements based on natural instincts that address the immediate danger that work against a variety of attacks, that are accessible to the average person, and that work from a position of disadvantage.  The training will include the stress experienced in real attacks.  The approach will be using general movements that deal with as many variations of attacks as possible.   A demonstration of the combative will be done, a step by step breakdown of the combative will follow, the student(s) will practice under supervision with corrections. There will be an emphasis on:

            1) Identifying the immediate danger,

            2) Operating under stress,  

            3) Defending and counteracting simultaneously. 

            4) Overcoming obstacles. 

            5) Awareness training. 

            6) Transfer of knowledge (the principals build on themselves, so that early lessons you use for one defense will carry over and be built on for later defenses). 


Combatives will practiced under stressful circumstances to develop the reaction time, aggression trigger and reliance on muscle memory.
