All this and more and all in a logical progression. It's free and completely own pace.
The self defense and martial arts industries teach that self defense starts when you are attacked by a person. We think this is seriously flawed and introduces the risk of injury and a hospital visit. Even if a person ‘successfully’ defends themselves against some form of attack, they are then at the mercy of the legal system relating to the use of force.
Instead, we are arguing that the point that a person is being attacked is when their self defense knowledge and skills have already failed them. Intelligent self defense starts well before an attacker is anywhere near you.
It doesn't matter if you have never done any martial arts or self defense classes in your entire life or if you have been practising or teaching martial arts or self defense for 5, 10 or 20 + years. The knowledge both groups will gain by doing this course has very little cross over to what happens in a physical encounter.
This course is a perfect accompaniment to those who are already doing physical training and want to develop complimentary modern violence knowledge.
If you don't understand violence, how can you expect to deal with it effectively?
We think our online course is a great use of the internet medium. This course provides knowledge and education which is a great fit for online training as people can learn when and where it suits them. People can spend more time absorbing material that is more challenging for them and skim over material they quickly understand. Teaching physical skills is best suited for person to person training.
The concept of avoiding violent crime as being a higher skill than fighting your way out of a violent crime encounter is not new. Sun Tzu, the Chinese General and military strategist penned the famous work the The Art of War back in the 6th Century. Perhaps his most sage advice, from that classic, is as follows.
"To have 100 victories in 100 battles is not the highest skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the highest skill."
Upon enrolment you will receive a completely free copy of the Human Combative Behaviour Manifesto.
In this Manifesto you will learn all about the Alpha Male and the Predator. You will learn about the true nature of human violence, learn about long term violent crime trends, violent crime categories and why that is useful, results of statistical analysis of violent crime in order to discover violent crime truths (as opposed to headlines) and learn about approaches to deal with both the Alpha Male and Predator.
